class OcaSignalGenerator : OcaActuator

Multiwaveform signal generator with optional sweep capability.

Properties:

OcaClassID ClassID

Number that uniquely identifies the class. Note that this differs from the object number, which identifies the instantiated object. This property is an override of the OcaRoot property.

This property has id 4.1.

OcaClassVersionNumber ClassVersion

Identifies the interface version of the class. Any change to the class definition leads to a higher class version. This property is an override of the OcaRoot property.

This property has id 4.2.

OcaFrequency Frequency1

Center frequency or sweep start frequency.

This property has id 4.1.

OcaFrequency Frequency2

Sweep end frequency.

This property has id 4.2.

OcaDBz Level

Output level in dB relative to device-defined zero level.

This property has id 4.3.

OcaWaveformType Waveform

The waveform type this generator generates (e.g. sine, square, noise, etc.).

This property has id 4.4.

OcaSweepType SweepType

The sweep type of the signal generator: None for no sweep, linear or logarithmic if sweep is generated.

This property has id 4.5.

OcaTimeInterval SweepTime

Duration of sweep in seconds.

This property has id 4.6.

OcaBoolean SweepRepeat

Indicates whether the sweep is repeated (true) or is one-shot (false).

This property has id 4.7.

OcaBoolean Generating

Read-only property that indicates whether the generator is producing output (true) or not (false).

This property has id 4.8.
