By observing the display I can see that the measurement is stable almost instantly after changing power levels however, if I use either READ or MEAS the meter responds ~6 seconds later, which is way too slow. Is this normal for the 4419 or am I doing something wrong?</FONT></DIV><DIV> </DIV><DIV><FONT color=#000080 face=Verdana size=2>If I use FETCH the meter responds immediately. The trouble is, FETCH will get whatever reading is currently displayed even if the power meter isn't done making the measurement. I would rather not play around with arbitrary delay times before fetching results and would very much like to get this thing working the right way.
