Issue Details

I have heard of different GPIB cable types like X2, X4, X5, X11, X12, X13. What are the specifications of these cable types?

Solution

These cable types differ by shielding type (e.g. single- or double- shielded) and connector (e.g. right-angle, standard). More detailed specifications as well as National Instruments part numbers can be found inĀ GPIB Cables and Accessories.
