ChronoP.Run()

Type: INSTANCE FUNCTION

Purpose: Run the curve.

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

Abort button Terminates the entire experiment.
Pause/Continue button  
Skip button Skips to the next phase of the experiment, either past the end of this curve or to the next region of the signal generator's operation.
Point button  

The active run can be halted in several ways, namely: if the signal generator is finished, if the operator hits a Skip button, or if one of the stopping criteria is met. These stopping criteria can be enabled or disabled using the ChronoP.Thresh() and ChronoP.StopAt() functions.

Usage:

Result = ChronoP.Run()
     
Result INDEX

0 = Normal finish, or Skip button pushed

1 = Stop due to Under Criterion (E < Emax)

2 = Stop due to Over Criterion (E > Emin)

3 = Stop due to stable [abs(dE/dt < limit])

4 = Stop due to runaway [abs(dE/dt > limit]

5 = Stop due to decreasing (dE/dt < limit)

6 = Stop due to increasing (dE/dt > limit)
