53132A GPIB Poll for measurement complete

Question asked by rvb on Jan 15, 2015
Hi all,
I've been struggling with the polling the 53132A through the GPIB interface to see if it has completed a measurement. I finally have a working solution, but I would like some input to see if there is a better way of polling the device. I am triggering off of an external input at running at 50Hz. 

' *Setup*
:FREQ:ARM:STAR:SOUR ext
:FREQ:ARM:STOP:SOUR imm

*SRE 128
*ESE 32
:STAT:OPER:PTR 0; NTR 16
:STAT:OPER:ENABLE 16

:INIT:CONT ON

' *Check for measurement complete*
ibwait(FCAddress, 0);
if( ThreadIbsta() & 0x1000 )
   Trigger()
   Receive()
    
Thanks
Richard
