When recalling a waveform file from memory I use the SCPI command ":MEM:STAT:RECALL 'file_name'" but I don't know how to query the EXG for what waveform file is already being used. Is there a SCPI command for this?
I have found a SCPI command to retrieve all the waveform files stored on the EXG (N5172B) memory by using ":MEM:CAT:STAT?" but not the one in use. I am looking through the SCPI Command Reference (N5180-90057) and noticed that not all the commands are supported by the EXG even though it says "All Models". In addition, the SCPI Command Reference doesn't have the ":MEM:STAT:RECALL 'file_name'" command in it. Does anyone know where I can get a document that lists the supported commands by the N5172B EXG? Any help would be greatly appreciated
If you press the help button on the EXG and then the Select Waveform soft key you should get a description of the soft key function and the equivalent SCPI Command. I tried this on a PSG and got :RAD:ARB:WAV. I added a question mark to query the PSG. :RAD:ARB:WAV? This gave me the current selected waveform. The EXG firmware is derived from the PSG firmware so it should work for you.
Hope this helps
Here are some other links that contain SCPI commands and stuff.
Thanks Pete! You're the man! I'll check it out and let you know.
