More scans per channel per second
Posted: May 22nd, 2011, 9:57 pm
I'm using the 7001 switch system and 7011 switch card. All of the 40 channels are recording voltages and I want to take 100 data for each channel. What I did was scanning from channel #1 to #40 once and repeated the loop 100 times, but there was a big time step between two scans for each channel, i.e., channel 1 was scanned every 18s rather than 1 sec. I see the trigger time could be 0.001sec, so my query is it possible to scan one channel 100 times per second before it switches to the next channel? I think it will save me quite a lot of time. Thanks a lot!
