For an application I have a generator (E8257) on a remote location. This generator must generate a couple of discrete frequencies when triggered.
To trigger the generator I use a E5818A Trigger Box. With the use of the "Interactive LXI" program I can generate a manual trigger on TTL1 of the E5818A Trigger Box. Command to the E5818A are send via LAN.
What VISA commands I have to send to the E5818A trigger Box to configure it for generating a trigger via LAN on TTL1? And what VISA command does generate the trigger on TTL1? The E5818A manual does not provide me with enough information.
Hi, I have same problem, I'm trying to generate a pulse on TTL1 port based on LAN without success.
If I use commands TRIG:TTL1:SOUR 'EXT1' and send a pulse on EXT1 input, I have a pulse at TTL1 output. At this point everything is ok.
Now if I sent command TRIG:TTL1:SOUR 'LAN0' and send command TRIG:TTL1:STAT 1, I have no pulse at TTL1 output port.
(this an example from programming manual p8 ou(pdf p20) http://cp.literature.agilent.com/litweb/pdf/E5818-90005.pdf )
Which command I need to generate a pulse on TTL1 based on LAN?
