Main Question or Discussion Point

I need an off the shelf DVM and Lab Power Supply that can be connected to a PC to firstly log the DVM output and secondly to Switch the PSU on and off dependent on the PSU terminal voltage/current.

I could do an internet search, but I have to get the spec out ASAP and haven't started it yet.

Does anybody know of/use this sort of kit, and can you point me to a Manufacturer/Supplier (Pref UK)

My first thought is "Agilent"

They make world's highest quality test equipment, including a bench DVM and power supplies that can be programmed via PC through a connection called GBIP. Their latest models can be programmed through a network now.

But they are very very expensive.

But here I found an alternative PS

and multimeter

hope that helps.

Thanks, I'd decided Agilent was the most likely supplier.
The 18A supply current means it ain't going to be cheap, but the £1200 price for the units I put together is still much cheaper then the £16k the contractor is saying it will cost. Time to put my Kicking boots on...

The other good thing about Agilent products is that they all use GPIB connectors (which can be daisy chained) and are easily programmed with Agilent VEE.
