Communication Interface

It is strongly recommended to use USB in conjunction with RSG. USB is more reliable due to being a dedicated interface as opposed to Ethernet which can be more susceptible to network traffic. Ethernet should hence be avoided if attempting advanced steering using high message rates or requiring synchronization at the GSG 10Hz epoch rate.

GPIB can be used as an alternative but as there are synchronisation issues with GPIB, USB remains as the number one choice.
