AD2 Trigger out pulse length

Question

Dear colleagues,

is there any possibility to set(configure) the trigger output pulse length? I have two discoverys, and one somehow provides 125us, while the other 350us. They might have been set for different value, but I do not know ho to (re)set them. 

 Thanks for your help in advance,

Miklos

The trigger output length depends on the selected source and it is not adjustable.

In this setup Trigger 1 outputs the Scope Detector, which is wired to DIO 0, see the 10ns pulse.
You can use the Pattern Generator to output a configured pulse length, like DIO 1 is set to 0.3us

Aha the Device Manager has to be set to a mode which supports "patterns". I had the AD2 set to the only option with 16K scope sample depth, since that is important to us...

I would like to trigger a 2nd AD2 module when the first one triggers, and also trigger an external device (Dataq 718) when the first AD2 triggers.

This probably belongs in a new thread:
