How do I access the 3488A compatibility mode on 3499A/B/C products?

The 3499 product is shipped in SCPI mode. You can switch to the 3488A mode by either sending the ASCII command "SYSMODE HP3488A" over the bus or by using the front panel.

To change the mode from the instrument front panel:

  1. With the instrument powered on, select "MENU".
  2. Turn the front panel knob until "SYSTEM MODE" is displayed.
  3. Press the "Enter" key, the current mode will be displayed.
  4. If "SCPI MODE" is displayed, turn knob until "HP 3488A MODE" appears.
  5. Press "Enter" to select the mode.
