I tried searching the forum and didn't see a post on this topic.

I have a BK Precision 4052 arbitrary waveform/function generator that appears essentially identical to a Siglent SDG1005. Does anyone know if I can use SDG1000 firmware (e.g. on it?

We were controlling the BK4052 with PyVISA 1.8, and I'm not sure what happened, but the BK4052 no longer displays its serial number on the "Help"/"View the instrument information" page. More importantly, the USBTMC drivers are no longer loading when the BK4052 is plugged into a Windows 7 PC (with NI-Visa drivers installed), perhaps because the VISA name is messed up (the VISA name had included the manufacturer ID number, model number, and serial number).

The BK4052 currently has firmware and hardware version 02-00-00-21-24. The BK4052 was occasionally freezing recently when we sending Visa commands with PyVISA 1.8.

Does anyone have any ideas on what we might have been doing wrong or what we could do in the future to avoid the lost serial number and failed VISA connections and related problems?

Thank you very much!!
