Operating Manual 1303.6580.32-06
Delta Mode switches the delta mode for the active marker on or off.
Coupled Mkrs activates or deactivates marker coupling.
Marker 1, ..., Marker 10 and Ref. Marker create a marker or remove it from the display. A removed
marker remembers its properties (stimulus value, format, delta mode, number) and will be
restored with these properties when Marker <n> or Ref. Marker is selected again. The marker
properties are definitely lost if the associated trace is deleted.
Markers are available for all diagram types (Trace – Format).
Marker 1, 2, 3
Creates the markers numbered 1, 2, and 3, respectively, and assigns them to the active trace (toggle
function). Marker 1/2/3 opens the numeric entry bar to define the marker position (Stimulus Mkr 1/2/3).
The default position is the center of the sweep range.
On closing the Stimulus Mkr 1/2/3 numeric entry bar a marker symbol (triangle) labeled Mkr <n> is
positioned on the trace and the marker coordinates are displayed in the Info Field.
Activating and moving markers
To select one of several markers as an active marker, do one of the following:
Click the marker symbol.
Click the marker line in the marker info field.
To change the position of the active marker on the trace use one of the following methods:
Drag-and-drop the marker symbol to the desired position.
Click the Marker <n> or Ref. Marker softkey to call up the entry bar for the new stimulus value.
Right-click the diagram area or select Mkr. Properties to call up the Marker Properties dialog and
select the new stimulus value.
Use the Search functions to place the marker to a specific point on the trace.
If the marker position is defined explicitly by entering a numeric value, the marker position can be
outside the sweep range. If it is just varied using the rollkey, the mouse or the cursor keys, it
always remains within the sweep range. If the position of a marker outside the sweep range is
varied, it is automatically moved to the start or stop value of the sweep range, whichever is closer.
Remote control: CALCulate<Chn>:MARKer<Mk>[:STATe] ON
Creates a reference marker and assigns it to the active trace (toggle function). Ref Marker opens the
numeric entry bar to define the marker position (Stim. Ref.Mkr.). The default position is the center of the
On closing the Stimulus Ref Mkr numeric entry bar a marker symbol (triangle) labeled Ref is positioned on
the trace and a line indicating Ref plus the marker coordinates is inserted in the marker info field.
The reference marker defines the reference value for all markers that are in Delta Mode.
