Auto open

The Multi Channel oscilloscope software supports multiple instruments at the same time. The setting Maximum number of instruments determines how many of the detected instruments will be opened to be used in the Multi Channel oscilloscope software.

Init with

When an oscilloscope is detected by the Multi Channel oscilloscope software, it can be opened and listed in the object tree. Additionally, the opened oscilloscope can be initialized with predefined settings from a settings file when init with is checked. Select a settings file using the file open button Open button.

Start after opening

When an oscilloscope is detected by the Multi Channel oscilloscope software, it will be opened and listed in the object tree. When start after opening is checked, the oscilloscope will start measuring automatically.

Start after loading settings

After loading a TPS settings file containing instrument settings and optionally measured data, oscilloscopes can automatically be started depending on this setting. The following options are available for start after loading settings:

  • Never The oscilloscope(s) will be stopped. Any data loaded into the oscilloscope(s) will remain in the instrument(s).
  • Always The oscilloscope(s) will be started. Note that any data loaded into the oscilloscope(s) will be overwritten after a measurement is performed.
  • Keep same state If oscilloscope(s) are measuring, they are restarted after loading.
  • As loaded The state in the loaded setfile will be used.

Automatically to graphs

When the Multi Channel oscilloscope software detects and opens oscilloscopes, it can automatically create a graph for each oscilloscope and place the channels of the oscilloscope in the graphs. Two settings control how many oscilloscope and channels are put in graphs:

  • Maximum number of instruments determines how many of the detected instruments are automatically placed in a graph.
  • Maximum number of channels determines the maximum amount of channels that is automatically placed in a graph.
