Why does my DS1000E seem to miss the first trigger points on slow time scales?
When the horizontal time base is set to 50ms or slower ,the scope will go into the slow scan mode. In this mode, the scope acquires sufficient data for the left side of the trigger point, then wait for trigger, when trigger occurs, it continues to draw the rest of the wave from the trigger point to the end of the right side. So when we measure low frequency signals, we usually choose slow scan mode to check the whole signal.
In slow scan mode there will be less delay between the trigger and the display if the trigger is all the way to the right. Then all of your data will be pre-trigger.
This VI allows you to select the channel for data transfer and save off data as a CSV file format. Written in LabVIEW 2011.

We created DS4_DS6000_Demo.VI to allow users to remotely program Rigol DS4000 and DS6000 Oscilloscopes. It is built using LabVIEW 2011 and utilizes National Instruments VISA for communication over USB.
The program allows users to configure the Rigol scope and collect data. User's ca select a VISA resource, channel, timebase, and vertical scale. This information is then downloaded to the scope and the data can be retrieved, graphed, and stored.
1. Connect power cord to instrument
2. Connect USB cord to instrument and PC. The PC should recognize the DMM and notify you that a new Test and Measurement Device (IVI) has been connected
3. Connect the scope to the circuit or device of interest
4. Run the VI by pressing the LabVIEW Run arrow in the upper menu bar.
5. Select the instrument of interest from the VISA Resource Name Drop down
6. Select the channel of interest, timebase, and vertical scale appropriate for your signal:
7. Download the configuration to the instrument. Alternately, you can use the AUTOSET to automatically configure the scope for the incoming signal of interest.
8. When you are ready to collect data, press Push To Run.
This will continually collect data from the scope until it is pressed again.
9. Once you have captured the data of interest, press Push To Pause and then Export Data to save the data to a TXT file on the clipboard.
If you have Excel, the program will also save a copy of the data to Excel.
