FAQ

The measured value is not shown on the panel display (shows "----").

Is auto continue mode on? Auto continue mode is off by default on the PCR-M.

Is the trigger source set to IMM (default)?

:INITiate:CONTinuous:SEQuence3 ON

:TRIGger:SEQuence3:SOURce IMM

The display of the PCR-M series with firmware version 1.20 or later operates as a monitor. It displays the present value that is being delivered to the load.

The display of the PCR-M series with firmware version 1.19 or earlier displays the value that was measured using the INIT or MEASure command. Therefore, the PCR-M display shows "---," which signifies that there is no data, in the following cases. When the front panel control switches from local to remote.

The measured value is not shown on the panel display (shows ".b.y.t").

If a concatenated command or a command that takes a long time to process is received, the PCR-M series may not be able to allocate the necessary internal memory.

When you send a command that takes a long time to process, wait approximately 250 ms before sending the next command.

Measurement does not start or the settings are not changed even when a trigger is sent.

Is the sequence in the WTG (Waiting for Trigger) state?

To start the measurement using a trigger, set the trigger source to BUS and send the INIT command to set the sequence in the WTG state.

Sequence 3 example

:TRIGger:SEQuence3:SOURce BUS

:INITiate:SEQuence3

If a trigger is sent in the WTG state, measurement starts.

:TRIGger:SEQuence3

Would like to know the time needed to complete the measurement.

The PCR-M requires at most 330 ms to complete a measurement after starting the measurement operation.

If an *OPC? query is sent along with the INIT command, an ASCII character "1" is set in the output queue when all of the measurement operations are completed.

Sequence 3 example

INITiate:SEQuence3;*OPC?

Because the measurement is complete when this response is retrieved, the measured data can be retrieved using the FETC? query.

For sequence 1, change INIT:SEQ3 to :INIT.

An error occurs when attempting to execute the "Easy Controller for PCR-M".

Has your computer installed the "VISA Library"?

One of the "VISA Libraries" is required in your computer to execute for the "Easy Controller for PCR-M".

If the error still appears even when the "VISA Library" is installed in your computer, please try to re-install the "VISA Library".。

As for the detailed installation of either library for such "NI-VISA" or "Agilent VISA", please refer to the instruction manual respectively.
