81635A and 81600B work with external trigger

Hi, I am using 81600B TLS and 81653A dual-power sensor to characterize some photonic chips. I have knowledge of how to setup continous sweeping using this setup using logging function of the sensor and continous mode of the TLS.

The problem is that, now I need this setup to work with an external dc supply, for instance, keithley 2400. The wavelength of TLS would be fixed while sweeping the voltage of the dc supply (~10000 steps). The dc supply is supposed to work in sweep mode in order to dramatically reduce the time and it will generate trigger signal. So I need the dc supply and the 81635a sensor to synchronize through trigger. how to do this?

Thanks so much!
