Abstract : An automated system for data acquisition and control via IEEE-488 interface to a general purpose laboratory computer is described. samples of data taken with the system on a multiphoton ionization spectroscopy experiment are shown, and all necessary additional control systems described. The IEEE-488 control system developed for this work represents a superior interface for the Dec PDP-11 computer than that available from the manufacturer. The software packages presented can be easily altered to support a wide range of IEEE-488 bus controllable devices.
