The Type K I/O board provides full GPIB/IEEE488 talker/listener/controller capability over the fiber optic loop of a Group3 Control system.

Power supplies, controllers and measuring instruments with a GPIB interface can now be integrated into the computer control system, taking advantage of the high voltage isolation provided by the fiber optic cables.

A maximum of 8 GPIB devices can be controlled by one type K board.
