Changing Sweep Step Time

Created on 2008-07-11 13:14:00

Q: I would like to make a frequency response measurement sweeping from 20 Hz to 20 kHz with 100 log spaced steps each lasting 1 second for a total sweep time of 100 seconds (1 min. 40 sec.). How can I change the step time to 1 second?

A: You can use the Delay property in the Settling panel to achieve this.

  1. Setup the Sweep panel as you normally would for this measurement.
    (See Figure 1) 
  2. Open the Settling panel (select Panels > Settling) and set the Level A Algorithm to None. 
  3. Set the Level A Delay to 1 second.
  1. Set the Level A Points to 1.
    (See Figure 2)
