How do I output a sequence one time instead of continuously?

If you want to output a sequence only 1 time, or only when a trigger is received, you need to tell the last waveform in your sequence to output once and wait for a trigger.   

EX:

DATA:SEQ #3143mySequence,”USB:\A.arb”,0,once,lowAtStart,10,”USB:\B.arb”,0,once,highAtStart,10,
”USB:\C.arb”,0,once,maintain,10,"USB:\A.arb",0,*onceWaitTrig*,lowAtStart,10


This configuration will output the sequence 1 time, and hold at a DC level until the function generator receives a trigger telling it to start the sequence again.
