I am a new user to the AD2 scene. What I am trying to do is create a parallel wire capacitor that will alternate the charge on the wires at a freq of 200kHz, at a voltage of 2V across the capacitor wires (in this case the wires are the male connectors)
My first question is if I use the wavefunction generator as a sine wave, does the ground need to be placed on the adjacent wire to create my capacitor? What I mean is that if the W1 channel is pushing 2V to the W1 wire, is that in relation to the ground wire? Or, do I need to set up a second wavefunction generator to simultaneously be 180 out of phase, and push -2V to the W2 wire, and have that be the wire adjacent to W1 in my wire capacitor to create the E field between the two wire capacitors?
I suspected that I would need a wavefunction generator for each of the wires in my system, so this leads me to the next question. If I need to create two sets of alternating parallel wire capacitors, then I will need 4 wavefunction generators at 200kHz, and thus will need atleast two AD2 devices that can trigger one another.
I read the tutorial on using an external push button act as the trigger device. Could I buy a external push button that I could link to both devices? If so, could someone show me which one? Secondly, my other question is that if there is a way to use a keyboard button to be your external trigger?
Thank you so much for your help!
