howto configure custom sweep mode

Post by martinPastor » May 13th, 2011, 1:37 am

Dear Folks,
I am writting in this forum because of I need your help. Actually, I am trying to remote control 2182A nanovoltmeter and 2400 sourcemeter in order to make delta meassures. I am following 2182A's manual. It says that it is neccesary to use custom sweep mode. I have tried to do it, but, I can't reach until now.
Do you know how to configure custom sweep mode in a remote way?
Thank you in advanced.

Dear Martin,
The 2182A manual page 5-9 onwards explains step by step how to manually configure the measurement using a 2400 and 2182A. The custom sweep is performed on the 2400, this is explained on page 10-6 of the 2400 User manual and the remote commands are listed in section 18, page 18-13.

I don't know what language you are using, but we have some Labview example code on our website for this measurement:

Dear Jeremy,
Thank you for the referencees. In fact, I have been using the 2182A 's manual as a guide in order to remote control the devices. But the main problem that I have found, I can't repeat the same sequence in remote. Anyway, I am going to try to reproduce the sequence that you have provide me in LabView.
Thank you for your help.
