The fastest "reading" command

Post by sunny_m » October 1st, 2012, 1:58 am

Hi,

I ama going to measure DC voltage from ch1 and temperature from ch2 of K2182A.

I am using MEASure and READ commands but both of them are very very slow.

I also have K182 -old one- G0X command is very very fast to read. As soon as you send command, you read the voltage.

I am asking any advice to read as fast as possible.

Best.

Try setting up the Model 2182A to read faster with the following commands for channel 1
:VOLT:NPLC 0.01
:VOLT:RANGE 0.01
:VOLT:DFILTER OFF

Channel 2
:CHAN2:TEMP:NPLC 0.01
:CHAN2:DFILTER OFF

Now use READ? to get the data...
Or you could try using the 182 language emulation.
This configure the 2182A to respond to Model 182 commands.
That might help.

Hi,

thanks for advice. It is working faster than before.

What you mean saying 182 emulation.

I am using 2182 and I also hae 182-which is not good anymore- G0X is the commang for 182 and it is very fast.

You mean I can use G0X for 2182 also

Best.

You can use the 2182 in the 182 emulation mode.
That means the 2182 would respond to 182 type commands.
