Both the Keithley (High Voltage source) and the Keysight (LV and LVDS power supply) can be controlled through the computer. They are connected to each other and the computer through a GPIB connector bus, and are controlled using scripts from Timon. This allows for control and measurement through the computer instead of by hand. When you run the attached scripts to control the power supplies the buttons on the supplies will no longer do anything. To regain control of the equipment press the local button on which ever supply you want to control.
  If any changes are made to the files they need to be recompiled in make. Running power_on power_off and start_mon require the argument of the serial port. The serial port for the GPIB connector is /dev/ttyUSB0 communication happens through that, with the Keithley power supply having the ID 10, and the keysight power supply having the ID 05.
