The PLZ-5W has 2 independent triggers (TRANsient, ACQuire). →Overview of Trigger Function

Trigger Function (ACQuire)

Starts measurement at trigger application.

INIT:ACQuire Switches to measurement trigger wait state
TRIG:ACQ:COUN Sets the number of times measurement values are to be recorded
TRIG:ACQ:DEL Sets the delay time for applying measurement triggers
TRIG:ACQ:SOUR Sets the measurement trigger source
TRIG:ACQ:TNT:STAT Sets whether to measure at intervals
TRIG:ACQ:TNT:TIME Sets the measurement interval time
TRIG:ACQ:MSYN Starts measurement simultaneously on synchronized PLZ-5Ws
ABOR:ACQ Stops the measurement trigger function

Trigger Function (TRANsient)

Starts sequence at trigger application.

INIT:TRAN:PROG Switches to the sequence trigger wait state in the program selected by PROG
TRIG:TRAN:DEL Sets the delay time for applying sequence triggers
TRIG:TRAN:SUSP Pauses a sequence that is being executed
TRIG:TRAN:RES Resumes a sequence that has been paused
TRIG:TRAN:EXEC? Queries the execution state of the sequence trigger function and the switching function
TRIG:TRAN:SOUR Sets the sequence start trigger source
TRIG:TRAN:MSYN Starts a sequence simultaneously on synchronized PLZ-5Ws
ABOR:TRAN Stops the sequence trigger function
