REP is an open-source library for controlling lab instruments. It’s an alternative to LabVIEW1 if you’d rather script your experiments in Python than fiddle with little wires and blocks.

REP makes it easy to interface your lab instruments with your data analysis and visualization tools: NumPy, SciPy, and Matplotlib.
