I have a 2445B with the factory GPIB mod. I'm on a trip right now, but
when I get home, I can check any details you might need, and photograph
what I have. I've toyed with enabling it, but I have too many other
projects underway and cannot see any reason for ME to want a GPIB interface.

Did you find any answer to your question about the 2465 GPIB Option yet?
I think that the extra parts for GPIB Option for the 2445, 2465, 2445A,

The PROMs on the A5 control board may not be the same.

over the GPIB port, and it would need to know how the switches areset on
the Front Panel. If this is true, the 2445 and 2465 front panelswill not
work with a 2465A with GPIB, because they lack the extra cables that areinclude the
fit onto the Front Panels of the A models.
Interesting enough is the fact that GPIB parts sets offered on eBay for
sale have different assortments of parts included. They usually
GPIB board, and the Buffer board, but do not always include thecables, or
the LED display panel. Sometimes the rear plastic panel is included, andthe same
sometime it isn't. The plastic rear panel needs to be matched with
type of fan that it came from, as the back/rear of the plasticpanels (and
the back steel panel) are different, depending on whether it wasused with
a Siemens or boxer fan. The GPIB kits that I have seen never include the
