How can I make the data acquisition time controllable through oscilloscope?


Hello all,


The program attached acquires the time signals continuously from Agilent DSO X 3024. The problem is I can not get the signals for larger time span and the maximum I am getting is 2e-5s. I was wondering how I can increase time range (or make the time span controllable).

If you want to capture more time on your oscilloscope, you need to increase the Time/Div (I am certain there is a VI in the driver library to do that).  This does slow down your sample rate.

First, learn how to use the O-scope manually to achieve the desired reeults.  Once you understand how to do it manually, you will be able to figure out how to do it using the drivers.


At least that's how I approach a problem like this.
