14585A Control and Analysis Software for the DC Power Analyzer

N6705B ImageImportant Note

The 14585A software is available to download free of charge. However, a license is required when connecting the 14585A software to an N6705A or N6705B DC Power Analyzer mainframe. The license resides inside the N6705A/B, not on the PC, and is specific to the mainframe’s serial number. Any copy of the 14585A software can connect to an N6705A/B mainframe as long as the mainframe has a license installed in it. See “How to Order a License” below for more information. Try the software for free with the 30-day trial license.
