Below there is a Slideshow including pictures of Fluke View Forms and it data logging environment (graphic user interface).

Intro:

Fluke View Forms 3.3 (CD disc) this is product released at 2009,  Fluke View Forms 3.6 update this came at 2011 and Fluke View Forms 3.8 this came at 2014.
All four models (8845A, 8846A, DMM4040, DMM4050) precision 6 1/2 digits DMM, they should be configured at Fluke 45 mode.

Fluke 45 Serial Communication Mode this is used for compatibility purposes, software commands they are identically understood by any multimeter this using Fluke 45 emulation mode.
In the negative side of things, such a software commands emulation mode, this using only commands for measurement data retrieval due the software.

In the positive side of things,  your multimeter in hardware controls ( buttons) they are alive and available to use for setting-up measuring function of choice, range selection, measuring digits resolution, filters and impedance.
At this point the multimeter this interact immediately with the PC software (by sending commands to it ),  and informing of new User made selections,  then Fluke View form  software Logging window controller this automatically adjusts accordingly with out any user interaction.

In conclusion Fluke 45 Serial Communication Mode this is a interactive connection in which multimeter and software they have constant communication regarding multimeter settings, and on top of that layer of interactive communication, there is a hypothetical next layer, this handling measuring data transfer.

Within 2019, and while Fluke 45 multimeter this is ancient technology,  this Fluke 45 communication system it is a very smart made interactive communications protocol.

Now if you wish discovering differences between ....... IEEE 488 is a short-range digital communications 8-bit parallel multi-master interface bus specification ...... and SCPI commands set? Feel free doing your own homework.  :)

Fluke View Forms 3.8 upgrade

Version 3.8 includes several improvements and new features over version 3.6:

* Modified Logging Setup for the Fluke 45, 8808A, 8845A/8846A: the default relative threshold floor or fixed threshold values to be based on the current reading values from the instrument.
* Modified communications with the Fluke 8845A/8846A to prevent activating the instrument 'ERROR' annunciator when there is no second function.
