The SETup subsystem is used to configure the test set for each measurement. Typical settings include:
Multi-Measurement Count, how many measurements will be made each time a measurement is initiated.
Trigger Arm, determines if a measurement will make one measurement then return to idle (single), or automatically rearm on completion of a measurement and repeat the process (continuous).
Trigger Source, how a measurement is triggered.
Trigger Delay, controls the delay time between the trigger and the start of sampling.
Measurement Timeout, length of time before a measurement times out.
Trigger arming for each measurement is controlled in the SETup subsystem. The choices are single or continuous. In most cases, it is a best practice (during remote operation) to use "single" measurement mode. This simplifies the tasks of starting concurrent measurements, using the INIT subsystem commands to determine which measurements are ready to be fetched, then using the FETCh subsystem to obtain results. The command "SETup:CONTinuous:OFF sets all measurements to "single" trigger mode.
