Force a trigger MDO3034

Solved!

All,

 

I need to force a trigger from MDO3034 then perform a scope measurement. On the actual scope there is a "Force Trig" button that does exactly that.

 

My problem is that I am communicating with the scope through driver "Tektronix DPO MSO 2000 4000 Series" obtained from NI website. Have searched directories and tried multiple configure VIs, but nothing worked so far.

 

Does anyone know if this can be achieved?

 

Thanks,

Anne

All,

 

Solutions at last 🙂

 

First method is the easiest one. There is a Send Software Trigger.vi coming with the driver. It works the same as a forced trigger.

 

Second method might involve more work if users need to edit their own vi to include command "FRANEL:PRESS FORCETRIG". This triggers Force Trig button function.
