I decided to run a little test today on my test bench in my lab. I was going to test for the delay between inputting a signal and the time gets written out. Instead I found that the output signal was choppy.
My set up is thus:
SNAP PAC R1 (8.4 firmware)
4 Position Rack
Analog Input (AIV-8)
Analog Output (AOV-25)
I ran a signal generator with a sinusoidal Waveform (8V p-p, 4V offset. 0.2 HZ) and an oscilloscope on the signal generator signal and on the AOV.
The program Consisted of two blocks: Move AIV to Variable, move Variable to AOV.
The signal from the AOV module was choppy and had significant steps (about 100 msec) the loop time was around 5msec. I figured as I was in debug mode I would see some slow down but not this significant.
Is there any advice for a higher response?
