Cpiv.StopAt()

Type: INSTANCE FUNCTION

Purpose: Enable or disable the Cpiv termination limits.

There are six limiting conditions upon which a curve may prematurely terminate:

1. Under

I < Limit

2. Over

I > Limit

3. Stable abs(dI/dt) < Limit
4. Runaway abs(dI/dt) > Limit
5. Decreasing dI/dt < Limit
6. Increasing dI/dt > Limit

The Over criterion is used to limit a positive current swing. The Under criterion limits a negative current swing. The Runaway criterion limits the rate of change in currentl. The Stable criterion is used to run a sample until it shows stable behavior. The Decreasing and Increasing conditions are signed versions of the Stable and Runaway criteria.

These conditions may be individually enabled and disabled.

Usage:

Cpiv.StopAt(Under, Over, Stable, Runaway, Decreasing, Increasing)
     
Under REAL

Enable the Under test and set value.

NIL Disable the Under test
Over REAL Enable the Over test and set value
NIL Disable the Over test
Stable REAL Enable the Stable test and set value
NIL Disable the Stable test
Runaway REAL Enable the Runaway test and set value
NIL Disable the Runaway test
Decreasing REAL Enable the Decreasing test and set value
NIL Disable the Decreasing test
Increasing REAL Enable the Increasing test and set value
NIL Disable the Increasing test
