Digital Oscilloscopes – XstreamDSO – Remote Control


How do I remotely control a Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope with USB?


First, note that not all Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes may be controlled remotely with USB.  XstreamDSO models that may be controlled with USB include the WaveSurfer 3000 series, HDO series, and WaveRunner Zi series oscilloscopes.  The port is USBTMC with a USB-B type connector.

For USBTMC connection:

1. Make sure NI-VISA is installed on the controlling PC.

2. Set “Control from” to USBTMC in the remote control settings menu.

3. Connect to the instrument using the USBTMC Visa address shown above.

4. Verify the connection with WaveStudio software. If WaveStudio is not already installed on your PC, follow the link below to the download page, where you will also find a link to the software manual. Select the 32- or 64-bit version depending on your PC’s operating system.

Alternatively, use the VISA Interactive Tool (Installed with NI-VISA) to test the connection.  Visit for more information about using this tool.
