Why so slow?

Hi,

I have a question about the power meter, but can not find a better place in the forum.

I am trying to control E4417 Power Meter with E9327 sensors (working at 'Average Only' mode) in C# over GPIB. When EPM running at the measurement rate of 'FAST', i can get very quick response of power readings within 0.2sec. However, i found setting frequency (eg. FREQ 1000MHz) to power meter is very slow, usually takes approx 1 second. And this long settling time slow down my overall test speed significantly.

Any ideas that helps to improve this is appreciated.
