5 Volt output before actual signal on 2531A

Question asked by ddaniel on Nov 27, 2013
I have a problem generating an output signal with the 2531A. The signal type does not matter at all.

Before the actual signal is generated I measure a short 5 Volt signal. Even if the 2531A is waiting for a digital trigger to ouput the analog signal, the output stays 5 Volt until the trigger happens and the correct signal is generated. I can measure the 5 Volt after the OUTP 1 command is transmitted (via labview).

I'm still learning Labview and the potential of the agilent 2531A. That's why I'm not sure if this is a hardware limitation. But the example code for labview provides the same problem. 

Additional information: I need to create a burst signal. Because of the amplifier afterwards the signal should not be higher than 2 Volt to not damage the sensors.

Some screenshots describe the problem best.
