Pwr_AE.StopAtDelayAE

Type: INSTANCE FUNCTION

Purpose: Used to avoid premature stopping of an AE curve caused by noise creating a false reading for a StopAt test.

Avoids false readings by requiring that the StopAt criterion be met for a number of data points (N) before the curve stops. The parameter N can be individually set for each StopAt test.

For absolute tests, such as V > Limit, the criterion must be met for N points consecutively before the criterion is accepted. One point missing the criterion limit resets the N point counter.

In general you only enable one of the threshold tests. The others are turned off by a NIL argument in the function call.

NOTE: After the threshold test is passed all StopAt tests are enabled. Once StopAt testing is enabled, it is never disabled, even if the Threshold test that enabled it is not longer valid.

Usage: 

Pwr_Ae.StopAtDelayAE(channel#, Vmin, Vmax, ADVMin, ADVMax, DVMin, DVMax)
