You will soon find that your instrument is more or less self-explanatory with an intuitive user interface. A menu tree with few levels makes the timer/counter easy to operate. The large backlit graphic LCD is the center of in­formation and can show you several signal pa­rameters at the same time as well as setting status and operator messages.

Statistics based on measurement samples can easily be presented as histograms or trend plots in addition to standard numerical mea­surement results like max, min, mean and standard deviation.

The AUTO function triggers automatically on any input waveform. A bus-learn mode sim­plifies GPIB programming. With bus-learn mode, manual counter settings can be trans­ferred to the controller for later reprogramming. There is no need to learn code and syn­tax for each individual counter setting if you are an occasional GPIB bus user.
