Is the Delay Measurement Value a Fixed-Point or Floating Point Number?

The Delay Measurement value is a Fixed-Point Number.

The Delay Measurement feature on the DL850 comes in two modes, Time and Degree. The output of the Delay Measurement feature is a time-based value and not an amplitude value. The method used to calculate the delay is based on the sampling rate and the number of data points between the trigger point to the measurement target. Therefore the output value is a Fixed-Point because the measurement depends on the sampling rate resolution.
