Is is possible to use Agilent USB -> GPIB converters?
Like for example the 'Agilent 82357B USB/GPIB Interface High-Speed USB 2.0' (http://www.home.agilent.com/agilent/pro ... SR.GENERAL)

The Agilent GPIB Interfaces are currently not officially supported by RadiMation.
However we know that several customers are using the Agilent GPIB Interfaces to correctly control their equipment with RadiMation.

Agilent provides the tools to emulate their GPIB interfaces as being a National Instruments GPIB Interface. By configuring the Agilent GPIB interfaces in this way, RadiMation can correctly use the Agilent GPIB interfaces.
Please see: In most situations it is sufficient to open the 'Agilent Connection Expert', then click Tools > Agilent 488..., then select the check box labeled Enable Agilent GPIB cards for 488 programs.

In the newer Keysight IO Libraries suite, the same setting can be found in the properties of the GPIB card in the IO Connection expert.
The dialog is different but still contains the same setting to enable the 488 compatibility mode.
