Time issue

Post by kelcmd » July 17th, 2015, 10:55 am


I have issue with dumping 1000 data points onto my computer at a rate of 500 R/s. I take the readings over GPIB into Matlab, and it takes approximately 7 seconds for the data to go from the dmm to the computer. Is this an issue with the DMM or just GPIB?

Thank you

You could use binary transfer mode to increase the data dump rate.
Look in the SCPI section of the manual. And look for the :FORMAT command.
That will show how to use binary transfer for faster rates into the computer.
