Output Signal form 6482

Post by milosbasovic » August 22nd, 2014, 11:18 am


I am trying to test the output of the trigger on 6482. I have used Model 8503 DIN to BNC trigger cable (VMC line) to connect 6482 to the oscilloscope. Apart from continuous signal of 5V I can't see any pulses leaving 6482. It might be that I have made a mistake in configuring trigger but I can't seem to find where is that mistake.

This is what I did, step by step, in configuring trigger:
----Configure Trigger
----Trigger Out
----Source=off, Delay=off, Meas=on
----Output ON
The way I understood the manual it should give me 100 negative pulses on oscilloscope. Oscilloscope is set to 5V/10us. As I said, I might have configured the trigger output wrong. Can you give me directions in how to accomplish this task?

Best Regards

Normally, the output is line 2.
Why did you choose line 1?
If you choose line 1 as the output, then select line 2 as the input.
