vrf VRF - HP81104A Pulse Pattern Generator

Question asked by michael.asbery on Jul 23, 2000
Richard,

As with most HP equipment, there should be a command to take a single
sweep.  Try "SING;" or "SWP;" or use an interface event and send a TRIGGER
to the GPIB bus.  This will cause a trigger to be sent to all devices on
the bus. You should be able to set your devices up for external triggers so
that they will respond to this event.
