I'm trying to measure some devices (automated) with a Frequency Meter 53131A with python and I’m having some trouble with a timeout issue. These timeout issue appears when the connection between the needles and the structures are not accurate enough (and the frequency can’t be measured). I wanted to know if there is a possible way to remove the frequency meter of this timeout status (without restarting the equipment by hand) or to avoid that to happen by changing the code.
The frequency measurement is about 2-5MHz and I'm using GPIB connection (I can provide my code if necessary).
Thanks by advance
