IviSpecAn Configure Frequency Center Span (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: October 24, 2017

    Configures the frequency range of the spectrum analyzer using the center frequency and the frequency span. If span corresponds to zero Hertz, then the spectrum analyzer operates in time-domain mode. Otherwise, spectrum analyzer operates in frequency-domain mode. This node modifies the IviSpecAn>>Basic Operation>>Frequency Start and IviSpecAn>>Basic Operation>>Frequency Stop properties as follows: Frequency Start = Center Frequency - Span/2 Frequency Stop = Center Frequency + Span/2 Note: In auto-coupled mode, resolution bandwidth (RBW), video bandwidth (VBW), and sweep time may be affected by this node.

    instrument handle

    The instrument handle that you obtain from the IviSpecAn Initialize Node or IviSpecAn Initialize With Options Node. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    center frequency (5.0 MHz)

    The center frequency of the frequency sweep. Units: Hertz Default Value: 5.0 MHz

    datatype_icon

    span (1.0 MHz)

    The frequency span of the frequency sweep. Units: Hertz Default Value: 1.0 MHz

    datatype_icon

    instrument handle out

    The instrument handle that you obtain from the IviSpecAn Initialize Node or IviSpecAn Initialize With Options Node. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
