We have tried to measure dc currents using channels 1001:1030 but we always get the following message: "1116 Configuration error, function not supported on specified channel". We would like to know whether it is possi...

Re: LAN connection fails in long measurements

Re: LAN connection fails in long measurements

Hi Cristian, Last night I run the script using the scan.execute(mybuffer) command instead of the scan.background(mybuffer) command, but still I had the same problem.

Re: LAN connection fails in long measurements

Dear Christian, Below you can find the output that we get with the print(localnode.info()) command. It seems that we have the latest version of OS Firmware. What should we do next?

Hi, We are using Keithley 3706 DMM in long measurements that last several days. The used script is attached. If the parameter USER_DELAY_SWEEP = 0.1, the program runs just fine.
