HI,

I am trying to scan through 136 channels of 34908A, using the commands below. Here I do not type all 36 lines, but I hope you get what I'm trying to do. I send these commands to 34972A using Agilent Intaractive IO interface for now, planning to implement this on labview later.
ROUT:CLOS (@101);:MEASure:VOLTage:DC? (@201:240);:
ROUT:CLOS (@102);:MEASure:VOLTage:DC? (@201:240);:
ROUT:CLOS (@103);:MEASure:VOLTage:DC? (@201:240);:

ROUT:CLOS (@136);:MEASure:VOLTage:DC? (@201:240)

My problem is that it takes me about 5 minutes 30 second to Send&Read. Is there a way to control the 34972A/34908A to scan much faster?

Thanks and regards
Lindani
