I'm doing some two terminal IV sweeps in pulse mode. I export the data in .xls files. When looking at "Settings" sheet inside the excel file, I realized that almost every relevant sweep's parameter was reported. In reference to Pulse mode only is reported if is enabled or not. Is there a way to report which on and off time I use?
I attached the project you asked for.
When you want to measure current while sourcing voltage onto a two-terminal device, for example a resistance, you have lot of options for the source. Using an ITM in sweeping mode you can select voltage bias, voltage sweep and voltage list sweep (the question will remain the same if measuring voltage while sourcing current). Suppose you have selected "voltage sweep" from 0 V to 5 V with 0.5 V of step, to give some example, now, as you want to measure current you can specified the current range for the measurement or leave it in autorange. For the first option, when you select the desired range, the "pulse mode" checkbox is now enabled and you can do your sweep in a pulsed way setting the pulse on time, pulse off time and a base voltage for the off period. If you choose autorange you can't do this pulsed sweep.
This "pulse mode" is described in page 6-100 of the Reference Manual 4200-901-01 Rev. N of September 2011. When you save the registered data in a .xls (almost) everything you have set up for the voltage sweep is saved in the "Settings" sheet of the file. I said "almost" because the selected on and off times of the pulsed sweep are not saved. Is there a way to save the configured on and off times?
