Max Samples on 3424

Postby CoyoteDavid » Wed Feb 14, 2007 7:19 am

First, let me say you have a great product!

I have a 3424 and am trying to get a long single channel data capture. The specification says that I can get 512K samples with a single channel, yet the most I can seem to get is 250002. I have only channel A enabled, and set the "Max samples per scope trace" to 1000000. I enabled the display for "Number of Samples" in measurements. I observe the following:

1 mS/div ==> 200002 samples (as expected, limited by 20 MHz sample rate)
2 mS/div ==> 200002 samples (should be able to get 400002)
5 mS/div ==> 250002 samples (should be able to get 500002)
10 mS/div ==> 250002 samples (should be able to get 500002)
20 mS/div ==> 250002 samples (should be able to get 500002)

Is the specification incorrect, or am I doing something wrong here?
