the sweep mode then the output level is controlled by the start,
stop, center and span functions. If in the fixed power mode then the
output is controlled by the POW C: LEVEL1 command. The *RST value
Sets and queries the power offset. This function changes mapping
of absolute power parameters on input to and output from the
synthesizer. Changing this does not affect the output power of the
synthesizer. Only the displayed parameters and query responses are
changed. The equation implied by this is:
The entered or displayed power = Hardware Power + Offset After
Queries and turns the power offset off and on. After *RST, the
setting is OFF.
POWer:RANGe <num>[lvl suffix] lMAXimumlMINimumlUPlDOWN
Sets and queries the setting of the power meter range. This is used
when the command POWer:ALC:SOURce is settoPMETer.
Sets and queries the power search switch. This has an interaction
with POWer:ALC:STATe as described below.
Sets and queries the RF slope setting (dB per Hz).
Power Switch Action
ALC is momentarily closed to
level at the requested power,
and then the modulator is set to
the same voltage in open loop
mode. This repeats automatically
any time that the power level or
frequency is changed.
Immediately performs a power
search. This leaves POWer:SEARch
in the ON position.
Modulator setting is
explicitly set by user.
