Voltage Sweep

    Last Modified: May 14, 2018

    During a voltage sweep, the voltage of the sweep signal changes continuously from the minimum to the maximum or vice versa, at the interval you specify. To generate a sweep signal, select the Sweep mode for the Variable Power Supply (VPS).

    The following table shows an example of configuring the VPS to generate a voltage sweep.

    Control Value
    Mode Sweep
    Start voltage 1.0 V
    Stop voltage 4.0 V
    Step value 1.0 V
    Step interval 1.0 s
    Generation mode Run once

    When you configure the VPS as specified in the previous table, the instrument generates a voltage sweep as follows:

    Figure 1. Output voltage when Generation mode is Run once

    If Generation mode is set to Loop, the instrument generates the voltage sweep continuously. The voltage first increases from 1 V to 4 V, and then goes back to 1 V and increases to 4 V again. The sweep continues until the instrument stops running.
