Macro on spectra

Post by jcclq »

Hi all

I would like to make a macro to acquire a certain number of spectra with, say, 30 seconds between them. At p. 103 of the manual, I saw it might be possible to do it with macros, in a XML script, but I don't if it is possible to have a 'FOR' loop and a WAIT function. If so, where can I find these functions?

Thanks!

JC

Hi,
You can recorded a marco to save the spectrum captures to file.
You can create a delay by editing the marco time stamps events.
But I would do this by calling the marco from the command line with a script (batch file, python etc) as macros don't support loop functions (for, while etc).
