Chapter 1 Overview
1.1 Overview
This application can be controlled from an external controller (PC) by
remote control commands using the MS2690/MS2691/MS2692A,
MS2830A, MS2840A or MS2850A Signal Analyzer (hereinafter, referred
to as “this instrument”). The remote control commands are defined by the
SCPI format.
1.1.1 Interface
This instrument has GPIB, Ethernet, and USB interfaces for remote
control. Those interfaces cannot be used at the same time.
The interface is automatically determined when a command is received
at the start of communication. This instrument enters the remote state
after the interface has been determined. The front panel
lights during remote interface operation, and goes off during
local-interface operation.
Refer to the MS2690A/MS2691A/MS2692A and
lamp
MS2830A/MS2840A/MS2850A Signal Analyzer Operation Manual
(Mainframe Remote Control) for more details of the basic operations for
remote control, such as interface setting.

1.1
Overview
1.1.2 Controlled Application
1
Two types of the remote control commands can be used with this
instrument: commands that are commonly applied to this instrument
commands”), and the other commands unique to the applications.
Common commands can be executed at any time and do not depend on
the currently controlled application. However, commands unique to an
application can be executed at the controlled application. If it is executed
at another application, the command is not executed or an error occurs.
In this instrument, multiple applications can be activated at the same
time. Only one application resource can be executed at one time per piece
of hardware. This application measures an input signal by using the
resource of RF Input. Thus, this application cannot be executed at the
same time with another application using the same resource such as the
signal analyzer function. In order to execute a function unique to the
application by using the remote control, you need to select this
application while it has been running. Furthermore, this application can
be executed at the same time with another application that uses by itself
a resource not used by this application, such as the Vector Signal
Generator option.

Chapter 1 Overview
1.2 Native Mode
In this instrument, the syntax/format types of the remote control
commands are defined as “Language mode.” The language mode has two
modes: SCPI and Native.
(1) SCPI mode
The SCPI mode processes commands conforming to the
syntax/format defined in SCPI (ver1999.0). For programming, you
can use character strings in long/short form and can omit definition
character strings within square brackets ([ ]).
On the Configuration screen, the SCPI mode is automatically set
after transmitting command SYST:LANG SCPI.
(2) Native mode
The Native mode processes commands that are in this instrument's
own definition type. Unless otherwise specified, the character string
of a command header is fixed. If application commands are defined
only by the SCPI mode, character strings converted according to the
conversion rules are the commands in the Native mode. For
programming, you cannot use the grammar of the SCPI mode, such
as character strings in long/short form and cannot omit any
definition character strings within square brackets ([ ]).
On the Configuration screen, the Native mode is automatically set
after transmitting SYST:LANG NAT.
Note:
The STATus:QUEStionable and STATus:OPERation registers
cannot be used in the Native mode, even if the corresponding
commands are converted to Native-mode commands according to
the conversion rules.

This application is only defined as the SCPI mode commands. You need
to follow the conversion rules below in order to control this application by
using the Native mode.
Conversion Rules
[1] Move the numeric parameter in the program header of an SCPI
command before the argument. Delete a numeric parameter which
only has one value and can be deleted. Describe the argument if it
cannot be deleted.
[2] Use the first one if multiple nodes can be selected.
[3] Delete those layers which can be deleted.
[4] Alter all long forms into short forms.
[5] Delete the colon mark (“:”) at the head.
Example
To convert :DISPlay:WINDow[1]:TRACe:Y[:SCALe]:RLEVel <real>
into a Native mode command.
[1]
Delete a numeric parameter in the program header which only has
one value and can be deleted.

↓
:DISPlay:WINDow:TRACe:Y:[SCALe]:RLEVel <real>

1.3 Setting Numeric Program Data
1
The following character programs can be used for setting numeric
program data (numeric parameter).
After DEFault is set to numeric program data, the target parameter
is set to the initial value.
(2) MINimum
After MINimum is set to numeric program data, the target parameter
is set to the minimum value.
(3) MAXimum
After MAXimum is set to numeric program data, the target parameter
is set to the maximum value.
In this application, DEFault, MINimum, and MAXimum can be used for the
following parameters.
