Trigger action

The trigger action module allows you to execute certain actions in Dewesoft that would normally requiere either using the sequencer or a custom application that would communicate with Dewesoft over DCOM.

The module can be added by coppying the TriggerAction.prc.prc file to the Addons folder and then selecting the module in Channel setup by clicking on the plus button.

Each instance of the module can only perform one action. If multiple actions need to be performed then multiple instances (tabs) of the module need to be added. Each instance requiers one input channel, which is used as the trigger condition. The chosen action will be performed when the selected trigger channel jumps from 0 to 1.

The module currently supports the following actions:

  • Arm
    • Arms the measurement when using triggered storing or starts storing if the selected storing type is always fast/slow
  • Disarm
      • Disarms the measurement when using triggered storing or stops storing if the selected storing type is always fast/slow
  • Start multifile
    • Starts a new multifile if storing and multifiles are enabled
  • Reset relative time
    • Sets the relative time to 0 s
