I want to program a SEQuence of "simple" waveforms remotely from a python script.
E.g. to begin with I would like a linear ramp followed by a sine.
I can do this by hand from the signal generator itself, but cannot get it to work from my python 2.7 console.
My code looks like this so far:
# Waveform Genertor
rm = visa.ResourceManager()
wavegen = rm.open_resource('TCPIP0::172.31.10.41::inst0::INSTR');
wavegen.write('*RST;*CLS;*OPC?') #reset instrument
time.sleep(2) #wait 2 seconds for the reset to complete
wavegen.write('SOUR1:DATA:VOL:CLE') #clear volatile waveforms
Then I know that I can make a Sine with:
wavegen.write('SOUR1:APPL:SIN 5 KHZ, 3.0 VPP, -2.5 V')
and a linear ramp with:
wavegen.write('SOUR1:APPL:RAMP 1 KHZ, 1 V, 2.5 V')
Does anyone know how to stack them into a DATA:SEQuence?
