Use the toolbar controls to perform basic tasks for the Oscilloscope.
|Automatic/Default||When you select Automatic, the instrument automatically chooses some settings, including channel and trigger settings, that are best suited to the input signal. When you select Default, the settings fall back to default values.|
|Run/Stop||Click Run to start continuous data acquisition. Click Stop to stop data acquisition. To take a single-sweep measurement, click Single instead.|
|Single||Takes a single-sweep measurement.|
|Status||Indicates the status of the Oscilloscope.
|Repetitive sampling status||Indicates the sample rate(s) of the Oscilloscope. When repetitive sampling is enabled, the toolbar displays both the repetitive sampling rate of the trigger signal and the normal sampling rate of the remaining signals. When repetitive sampling is disabled, the toolbar displays the normal sampling rate only.|
|Screenshot||Takes a snapshot of the graph.|
|Export|| Exports acquired data to file formats compatible with Multisim or LabVIEW. You can also use the exported data as a reference channel for the Oscilloscope. When you export the data to Multisim, the Oscilloscope generates a CSV file; when you export the data to LabVIEW, the Oscilloscope generates a TDMS file. Refer to TDMS File Format (Oscilloscope) for more information about the exported TDMS file format.
The Oscilloscope generates two CSV files when repetitive sampling is enabled. One file contains data acquired from all the enabled channels at the normal sampling rate. The other file, whose filename has the suffix _Repetitive, contains data acquired from the trigger channel at the repetitive sampling rate.
