Does the instrument require that you rebuild certain Math waveform and measurement definitions+ rather than just save and recall them?

Question :

Does the instrument require that you rebuild certain Math waveform and measurement definitions+ rather than just save and recall them?

Answer :

Yes, the instrument may require that you rebuild certain Math waveform and measurement definitions, rather than just save and recall them.

For example, this instrument allows you to define such math waveform and automatic measurements as follows:

  • Example 1: MATH1 = AVERAGE(C1-MEAS1); where MEAS1 = MEAN(R1)
  • Example 2: MEAS1 = AVERAGE(MATH1)

While this flexibility makes for very powerful math and measurement systems, it also complicates the saving and restoring of the instrument state using either Save and Recall Setups or the *LRN? GPIB command. For our math waveform example above (Example 1), it is critical to restore the MEAS1 definition prior to restoring the MATH1 definition. However for our automatic measurement above (Example 2), it is critical to restore the math definition prior to the measurement definition.

The application software does not yet attempt to rationalize the order in which it restores instrument settings using a Recall Setup operation or *LRN? command. As a result, it may be necessary to rebuild definitions such as those just discussed rather than just saving and recalling them.
