Purpose: Report the current ID of the cable connected to the potentiostat.

For potentiostats with a single cell cable, like the Reference 600 and Interface 1000, there is only one cable ID.

For a potentiostat like the Reference 3000 with multiple cell cables, the CableType needs to be specified in order to read the Power or Aux Electrometer cable IDs.

Usage: CableId = Pstat.CableId()
