increase sample rate to measure current with Keithely 2450

Post by fk5747 » August 22nd, 2019, 1:10 am


I'm trying to measure current with a Keithley 2450 (LabVIEW 8). The current in sleep mode is around 3uA and has a peak at 9mA and with 0.1ms width, I would like to capture the pulse and especially the peak.
I saw others ask about the Max sample rate for Keitely 2450, but I haven't found the answer. I am sending SCPI command in my LabVIEW code, I have set the NPLC to 0.01,
turn off the Auto range and Average, but still I have the interval between samples around 3ms which is too low. Is there any way to increase it?

(And I am using Keithley drivers)

I appreciate any help.
