Rubidium™ MG362x1A SeriesLow-Noise RF/Microwave SignalGenerators : Instrument Operation : Frequency Step Sweep Operation : Setting the Step Size
Setting the Step Size
Press STEP SIZE to open the step size parameter.
Open the parameter you wish to change, then edit the current value using the cursor control keys, the rotary data knob or enter a new value using the key pad and appropriate termination soft key. When you have finished setting the open parameter, close it by pressing its menu soft key or make another menu selection.
In STEP SWEEP, the sweep is linearly incremented (or decremented) by the step size beginning with the start frequency to the stop frequency. There are two ways to set the size of each step of the linear step sweep—set the step size or set the number of points. The step size range is 9 kHz to the full frequency range of the instrument. When the step DWELL TIME, STEP SIZE, or NUMBER OF POINTS is set, the sweep time equals:
Step Dwell time × Number of Points + total phase-locking time for all the step frequencies
Press the STEP SIZE button to open the step size parameter. Edit the open frequency parameter. When you complete, close the open parameter using a termination key.
The Step Size and Number of Points parameters are coupled values and change when either value is changed. When a coupled parameter value changes, its text color changes to blue.
