We've been using the 34970 DAQ, 34901A interface and BenchLink 3 software to test some of our equipment. The unit under test is vibrated, and circuit contunuity data is logged. The problem we're having is that even when scanning at 1 second intervals, we miss some of the alarms. If a trace or wire is slightly lose, circuit break may only last a fraction of a second. Is there a way to monitor a channel all the time, as well as log an alarm on said channel once a circuit break occurs? So far I've found a way to continuously monitor the one channel, but not how to log alarms on it if the circuit break occurs outside the scan time.
