VMC Ecal - syncing PNA and controller

Question asked by akalei on May 5, 2011

I have a PNA-X setup to do a VMC Ecal on 18 channels.

I send the following scpi command to acquire the cal data.
SENS:CORR:COLL:SESS:ACQ 1

I've been waiting a certain number of seconds before sending another command so I don't get a query interrupted or unterminated error.

I tried using SENS:CORR:COLL:SESS:ACQ 1,ASYN; *OPC? so I could get rid of the code which waits before sending the next command but the PNA-X doesn't complete the cal step when I do this.  Is there a status bit or something else I can check to see that the cal step is complete?

I would like to be able to get rid of these delays I've set because when I change the cal settings the time for each channel changes and they are not all the same.  I spend way too much time trying to figure out how long each cal step takes for each channel.

Thanks in advance!
