BenchVue software

Keysight BenchVue software for the PC eliminates many of the issues around bench testing. By making it simple to connect, control instruments, and automate test sequences you can quickly move past the test development phase and access results faster than ever before. Dedicated instrument apps allow you to quickly configure the most commonly used measurements and setups for each instrument family.

For an overview of BenchVue software, visit the BenchVue home page.

How do I download and install BenchVue software?

BenchVue software is designed as a platform with apps that can be installed into that platform. Generally the best experience is to:

1. Download and install the platform first, , except for the latest standalone app as below:

Standalone App App Version
BV0001B - Digital Multimeter Control App 2021
BV0002B - Function Generator Control App 2021
BV0003B - Power Supply Control App 2021
BV0004B - Oscilloscope Control App 2021

2. Connect and find your instrument inside of BenchVue

3. Double click on the instrument to download the right BenchVue app.

You can also install the platform first then download and install apps separately using the web page in step 1.
