5402

It seems that when setting the Ni 5402 Sig Gen's frequency from one value to the next using its standard function mode (sinewave, typically 5000Hz, ivi), the output momentarily switches off/on.

This switching appears as a glitch on the output which is enough to cause havoc with my test item. I have used other makes of Signal Generator before and not had this problem.

Is there a way of reducing the output glitches of the Ni 5402 signal generator or is it just a nasty signal generator?

Sweep mode does not give glitches when sweeping but still gives glitches when switching between sweep & standard function modes (as the output momentarily switches off/on).
