8257D Step/List Sweep external Trigger

Is it possible to step thru the frequency list in List or Step mode using an external trigger instead of specifying the dwell time? From what I can tell, it looks like the external trigger only initiates the list sequence.

Hi -

Yes, it is possible to step thru the sweep elements (frequency and/or amplitude) in either List or Step mode.

After setting up the desired Sweep elements configure as follows:
Set Sweep Repeat to ‘Cont’
Set Sweep Trigger to ‘Free Run’
Set Point Trigger to ‘Ext’
Turn the sweep ‘On’

Now each single external trigger will cause a transition to the next sweep element.
