Default settings: GPIB:PAD=15,SAD=None (CMMC)
Some newer systems may use an alternate PAD -i.e. Alt. PAD = 30 – Default PAD
e.g. PHC’s default PAD = 4 when used with Mitutoyo CMM but could revert to 26 on some Windows 7 PC’s and latest NI 488.2 software.
See NI Tutorial that shows method to determine unknown Primary ID - Tutorial
For CMM-C / GPIB Timeout errors, try increasing the GPIB Timeout value as well as increasing the Delay Between GPIB Commands by increments of 10ms. This can resolve timeout issues after upgrading PC to faster CPU / clock.
