SCPI-Command for PowerSupply Agilent N6700 to disable outputs if overcurrent occurs

[ Edited ]
Hello,
i´m working with a PowerSupply model Agilent N6700. This is only a mainframe which can have up to 4 modules integrated.

With SCPI-commands i can enable an OverCurrentProtection for each module (1..4) what is done with this command:
CURR:smileytongue:ROT:smileyfrustrated:TAT ON,(@4)  (where 4 is the module-number)

What i am now looking for is a command which disables ALL 4 modules immediatly  when there was anOverCurrent on one of the modules.

For example first i set all 4 modules to 10V,1A, State=ON with OCP = 1A
Then there happens during testing an overcurrent on module 2 which disables currently only the output on this module.
But i want to disable ALL outputs immediatly if there was an overcurrent on any of the modules.

I know how to do it from external by checking all states with CURR:smileytongue:ROT:smileyfrustrated:TAT? (@1) and if one of them wozuld be true to disable manually the outputs, but i want that the mainframe is configured to execute this by itself and to disable all outputs.

Is this possible?

Thanks for your help.

It may be faster to contact Agilent to get an answer.

Re: SCPI-Command for PowerSupply Agilent N6700 to disable outputs if overcurrent occurs

... or by reading the manual *g*:

OUTPut:smileytongue:ROTection:COUPle <Bool>

OUTPut:smileytongue:ROTection:COUPle?

Description

This command enables/disables output coupling for protection faults. When enabled, ALL output channels are disabled when a protection fault occurs on any output channel. The enabled state is On (1); the disabled state is Off (0). When disabled, only the affected output channel is disabled when a protection fault is triggered
