In most measurements, you specify only the Fmax and the Sample Time. Based on those two values, the analyzer adjusts the Sample Rate and Number of Samples.
- Activate a job.
- From the Transient main menu, press F1 Setup / Acquire Data.
Set the following options as necessary.
Option Description F3 Set Sample Rate Set the number of samples to acquire every second. Values may range from 25.6 to 51,200. Setting the Sample Rate automatically adjusts the Sample Time and Fmax: Sample Rate = 2.56*Fmax. The default is 512. F4 Set Samples Set the total number of samples to collect. The amount of memory available for data storage may limit the number of samples. Changing the number of samples will adjust the Sample Time. The default is 2,560. The number of channels also affect the samples. The maximum value is listed under the number of samples. F5 Set Sample Time Set the duration of the acquisition in seconds. The amount of memory available for data storage may limit the number of samples. Changing the sample time does not affect the sample rate. The default is 5. The Fmax also affects the sample time. The maximum value is listed under the time.
