  4. :ACQuire:SRATe?

Detailed introductions for each command are the following.

:ACQuire:TYPE

Command Format:
:ACQuire:TYPE <type>
:ACQuire:TYPE?
Function:
The command sets the acquisition type. The <type>may be NORMal(common sample), AVERage(average sample) or PEAKdetect(peak detection).
Returned Format:
The query returns Normal or AVERAGE, PEAKDETECT.
Example:
:ACQ:TYPE AVERage                Set the acquisition type as average acquisition.
:ACQ:TYPE?                             Return AVERAGE.

:ACQuire:MODE

Command Format:
:ACQuire:MODE <mode>
:ACQuire:MODE?
Function:
The command sets the acquisition mode. The <mode> may be RTIMe (real time sample) or ETIMe (equal time sample).
Returned Format:
The query returns RTIME or ETIME.
Example:
:ACQ:MODE ETIM                    Set the acquisition mode as equal time acquisition.
:ACQ:MODE?                            Return ETIME.

:ACQuire:AVERages

Command Format:
:ACQuire:AVERages <count>
:ACQuire:AVERages?
Function:
The command sets the average acquisition time. The <count> range is 2~256, and the count increases by the power operation of 2.
Returned Format:
The query returns 2 or 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256.
Example:
:ACQ:AVER 16                          Set the average acquisition time as 16.
:ACQ:AVER?                             Return 16.

:ACQuire:SRATe?

Command Format:
:ACQuire:SRATe? [{<CHANnel<n>}]
Function
To query sample rate of CHANnel <n>, <n> may be 1, 2, 3, 4.
Returned Format:
The query returns 5.000e005, the unit is Sa/s.
