MEASUREMENT_MSO2X

Download Flojoy Studio to try this app
Measure one of the waveforms for the MSO2X. Requires a CONNECT_MSO2X block to create the connection. Tested on MSO22 and MSO24. Params: connection : VisaConnection The VISA address (requires the CONNECTION_MSO2X block). channel : select, default=1 What channel to extract the measurement from. measure_num : int, default=1 What measurement number to use on the scope. measurement : select, default=period The type of measurement to make. statistic : select, default=mean The type of statistic to use for the measurement. Returns: out : Scalar The measured value

React Flow mini map

This app uses the Tektronix tm_measure library and Flojoy vary the output frequency of an AFG31000.

First the necessary blocks were added:

  • CONNECT_AFG31000
  • FUNCTION_AFG31000
  • OUTPUT_AFG31000
  • LOOP
  • 2x SCALAR
  • MULTIPLY
  • INPUT_PARAM_AFG31000

Each of these blocks must change the connection parameter to the correct instrument. The source used was CH1 so all the blocks were changed to turn this output on and to affect this channel only. To vary the frequency between 1 kHz and 10 MHz, the parameter param was changed to โ€œfrequencyโ€ for INPUT_PARAM_AFG31000 and SCALAR 1 was set to 680.2721. SCALAR 2 was then set to 1.47 which will multiply the last parameter by 1.47 each loop. LOOP was changed to loop 25 times. This resulted in frequency values of ~1.0, ~1.5, ~2.2 kHz, etc. until ~10 MHz.

The blocks were connected as shown and the app was run.
