Parameters

 

<cnum>

Channel number of the measurement. There must be a selected measurement on that channel. If unspecified, <cnum> is set to 1.

<dataFormat>

Choose from:

  • MLOG - Log magnitude

  • MLIN - Linear magnitude

<units>

For unratioed MLOG measurements, choose from:

  • DBM  Units are displayed in dBm.  0 dBm = 0.001 watt

  • DBMV Units are displayed in dBmV.  0 dBmV = 0.001 volt

  • DBMA Units are displayed in dBmA. 0 dBmA = 0.001 Ampere

For unratioed MLIN measurements, choose from:

  • W -Units are displayed in  Watts
  • V -Units are displayed in Volts
  • A -Units are displayed in Amperes
