Instrument Driver Communication
You need to create an interface object, for example
to communicate with instruments, as described in many of the sections
of the documentation. You can also create a device object that allows
you to configure and query an instrument without knowledge of its
command set. See Creating and Connecting Device Objects for more information
about using device objects.

Includes the general procedure for the creation and use of device objects.
Configuring and exchanging data through device objects.
Obtaining and using group device properties.
Device objects allow you to configure and query an instrument without knowledge of its command set. The low-level communication is performed through a MATLAB® instrument driver.
These properties are available in the toolbox.
