How do I Programatically Determine the Start and End Point of the Zoom Box for the DL850 ScopeCorder?

To determine the start and end point of the zoom box for DL850 ScopeCorder, issue the following commands:
  • :ZOOM:MAG?
  • :ZOOM:MAG1?

You can then calculate the zoom start and end points by using the following equations:

  • Zoom Start = [Wave Length * (5 + Zoom Position) / 10 div - (Wave Length/Zoom Mag)] /2
  • Zoom End = Zoom Start + Wave Length / Zoom Mag
