Ciiv.Run()

Type: INSTANCE FUNCTION

Purpose: Run the curve.

When Ciiv.Run() is executed, the acquired data are displayed in a real-time curve. There are three buttons active during Ciiv.Run():

Abort/F1 Terminates the entire experiment.
Pause/Continue/F3 Pauses the curve and data-collection.
Skip/F2 Skips to the next phase of the experiment, either to the end of the curve or to the next region of the signal generator's operation.

The active run can be halted in several ways:

1) when the signal generator is finished,

2) if the operator hits a Skip/F2 button, or

3) if one of the stopping criteria is met. The stopping criteria can be enabled or disabled using the Ciiv.Threshold() and Ciiv.StopAt functions.

Usage:

Result = Ciiv.Run()
     
Result INDEX

 

  NO_STOP Normal finish or Skip/F2 button pushed.
  STOP_V_UNDER Stop caused by Under Criterion (E < Emax)
  STOP_V_OVER Stop caused by Over Criterion (E > Emin)
  STOP_V_STABLE Stop caused by stability [abs(dE/dt) < limit]
  STOP_V_RUNAWAY Stop caused by runaway [abs(dE/dt) > limit]
  STOP_V_DECREASING Stop caused by decreasing (dE/dt < limit)
  STOP_V_INCREASING Stop caused by increasing (dE/dt > limit)
