RTE - How can I get the full record length?


I want to set my RTE to the highest possible record length. But I get "limit reached" at a lower value as specified in the datasheet.

What is the reason?


There are several points which may reduce the record length:

  • Auto Measurement Function
  • waveform arithmetics (Envelope or Average)
  • waveform decimation
  • more than one channel active

A combination may cause additional reduction.

So if you reach the limit please check if some of the settings are from the previous setup and not necessary.

Other possibility is to press "PRESET" and just do the settings which are necessary for that measurement.
