The 7470A add hardcopy graphics capability to intelligent instruments and instrument systems with HP-IB (IEEE 488-1978). For most applications that use a display screen and a oscilloscope camera, these plotters can produce high-quality hard copy of the screen for a cost that is substantially lower that camera film. Because they plot directly from measured data, they eliminate problems created by distortion from the screen. And plotter output provides better visual resolution than photographs.
