How make long period measurement with 53131A

Question asked by daniele.banfi on May 30, 2011
Hello everyone

I need to make a period measurement very long (around 60 seconds, start marker with positive pulse, pulse lenght 400 ms) and I've a problem.

I set the 53131A as period measurement, use channel 1, set trig level and seems all ok. The Led on channel 1 blink every time receive the posivite pulse (lenght around 400 ms). The period value is displayed but I'm espect a update value every trigged, instead the period value seems update every 2 trig's.

How ?
I need to set the gate function ?

Thanks for any suggestion
