It will be straightforward ASCII commands, but each
mfr's command-set is different, so you probably can't
do it without some sort of documentation on that supply.
To show how easy it is, below are the commands we have
to use to control up to 5 power supplies with one IEEE
controller. Only as an example, because they are almost
certainly not applicable to your HP supply.
"24.0 V VSET" \ Set Vout (0 to 32V).
"28.0 V OVSET" \ Set the overvoltage trip (0 to 33V).
"1.5 A ISET" \ Iout max (0 to 30A).
"OVRST" \ Untrip any possible overvoltage trip.
"ENABLE" \ Bring the supply up.
"VOUT?" \ What is your present Vout?
"IOUT?" \ What is your present Iout?
"MODE?" \ Are you in CV or CI mode?
"DISABLE" \ Shut the supply down.
