This project contains device drivers and a corresponding class object for controlling a Keithley 24XX sourcemeter in Matlab. The implemented methods include standard current-voltage measurements, time resolved current-voltage sweep measurements, time resolved current-density point measurements, cyclic current-voltage measurements (MPP->JSC->VOC->JSC), and steady state tracking measurements of maximum power point, VOC, and JSC.
The main function is classKeithley2400.m, which will create a Keithley2400 device object for the Keithley 24XX (SCPI) family. There are two optional input parameters (string connectionType, string/int port), which can be also set after creation.
All methods are implemented into classKeithley2400_testscript.m and can be tested seperately. An GPIB controller is required and the Keithley has to be set to SCPI! A serial connection does not work and all references will be removed in future updates.
I did not use intentionally the instrument control box, although it is installed, so I hope it does run without. All paths I make are relative, however in Windows style. Contribution for making it compatible to Linux and MacOS are welcome :)
