Making a custom list sweep using the trigger link

Post by breinoso » May 27th, 2011, 3:46 pm


I am trying to program the 2400 to be able to sweep voltage at specific steps ( a list of 10 values for instance). I need to be able to present each value after a trigger event via the tlink #1. The trigger events might not occur at a fixed rate. I have multiple 2400 that will receive this signal from a pattern generator. Is there some SCPI code anyone can share that can give me a starting point?

The Model 2400 can output a pulse at either the Source , Delay or Measure Cycle in the TRIGGER Layer.
Each of these can output a pulse or none of them. But only one at time.
The commands are as follows...

Do this in a LIST sweep.
:SOUR:LIST 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
That should output a pulse at each step on the SENSE(Measurement) phase.
