Hi David
I believe the last version of Workstation to work with the Tracker 5100DS & 5500 was version 3.5.4.3.
And the last operating system for this was Windows XP SP3, 32-BIT.

Spot on, James! The 5500 was a hybrid with the Tracker 5100DS built inside.

actually I did not formulate the question well my interest was to know which was the last team to use the annoying GPIB connection, until what workstation were GPIBs admitted? (when it does not want to communicate it is a headache

The Tracker 5100DS, Tracker 5500 (a Prober 2 with a Tracker 5100DS inside) and the Tracker 5300 (a Prober 1 with a modified Tracker 5100DS inside) were the GPIB devices Huntron produced. I believe the 5500 was the last. The Probers were black/white cameras that used the Electrim frame grabber.

This USB to GBIP adaptor looks better.
See this link:- https://uk.farnell.com/keysight-technologies/82357b/converter-interface-usb-to-gpib/dp/1425679

Or States side see this:- https://www.newark.com/keysight-technologies/82357b/high-speed-usb2-0-gpib-interface/dp/31M9424?ost=82357B

Curtis could this work ?

for this number of £$ you would't be far of getting a ProTrack on EBay!

Hi James It is a very good question, I would also like to know the answer because those are cheaper for the current economy, but if we look at it logically I think that since national instruments manufacture an interface that controls any GPIB equipment, they manufacture communication, not equipment of tests and its market is to be compatible with all manufacturers, I think that if it can work, I found this configuration photo and it helps me to confirm my theory.
