Procedure scheduler - a measurement program for each instrument

The Scheduler is a new feature of NOVA. The sceduler can be used to define a measurement schedule for each available instrument. Several procedures can be added to each instrument schedule and optional synchronization points can be added to the schedule as well. This simplifies long measurements drastically since each instrument will execute the specified procedures sequentially.

Procedure can be added to a new or existing schedule using the simple drag and drop method. Each procedure is represented by a white box in the schedule, the size of which is scaled in proportion to other procedures in order to visually indicate the relative duration.

The Virtual instrument can also be involved in the schedule. This device can be used to run procedures that contain commands that do not require a connected instrument.
