PWR.Run()

Type: INSTANCE FUNCTION

Purpose: Run the curve.

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

Abort button

Terminates the entire experiment.

Pause/Continue button

 
Skip button 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 button, or

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

Usage:

Result = Pwr.Run ()
