I find things still a bit unclear.
In rapid block mode the software does one data record, then it needs some time to recover (dead time) and then it listens again and waits for the next trigger.
I understand that the function doesn't include the dead time. But what is with the time the device is listening? Is this included?

I noticed that with a constant pretrigger value set, I don't get a constant from that function but different values. Thus, the time offset it gives has to include more than only the pretrigger which is set.

I'm working with a 6404B and I am highly relying on getting the absolute or relative trigger times somehow.

Please contact support@picotech.com

True timing between trigger events is not currently available in an available driver for the 6000 series, although a version should be available soon.
