Hello,

I am using N5242A with A.09.90 firmware. I would like to perform current measurements in pulsed mode using N2782B current probe with 34465A multimeter. I am trying to add external DC Meter according to: Configure a DC Device.

In the "Enable I/O" box I set the following commands:

conf:volt:dc;

trig:count 201 (number of points);

trig:sour ext;

trig:slop pos;

trig:del 0;

samp:count 1;

 

Which means, DMM uses external triggering, and captures 1 sample per trigger.

In the "Before Sweep" box: I set the following comand:

INIT

in the "After sweep" box:

FETCH?

 

However, the DMM returns errors. How to perform this measurement?

Best regards,

Pawel
