Title: Set gate time >10 sec on DG1022Z ?
Post by: Circlotron on April 05, 2018, 02:48:27 pm
The gate time menu on Rigol DG1022Z frequency counter function has options 1mS, 10mS 100mS, 1 sec, 10 sec, >10 sec. For >10 sec option there doesn't seem to be a method of setting this time. Press that button and it samples approx every 1 second. Any ideas how to set this to a long duration?

*Bump* to the front page for a new set of eyes.

AFAIK it doesn’t do this. I found the gate times very odd anyway. I also found the counter on mine to be not very sensitive so I bought a TTi TF930.

This is what I mean.
First pic shows gate time options of 1mS to 10 sec.

Second pic shows >10 sec option but there doesn't seem any way of setting what this
time actually is.

I think that’s just the menu overflowing and there’s nothing in the second one.
