Maths and Function both also send a 10V pulse out of the "signal in" or "integrate in" jack when you trigger a transient shape via their Trigger inputs. It's not just during Cycle mode.wsy wrote:Not quite the "trigger" input - it's on the "integrate in" input, and only when you have "CYCLE" turned on.yghartsyrt wrote:Maths also puts out a pulse wave on the trigger input.

Isn't Maths doing it too? being reminded at this frightens me a bit...
If I remember correctly a lot of function generators do this.
Hasn't caused a problem yet, but yeah, it kinda gives one pause and a bit of concern.
It's fairly potent- around 10 volts, and seems to have quite a bit of current sourcing (i.e. it's not just through a 100K resistor,
knocking down the current to a 0.01 mA or so. It's more than enough to override what a Rene can put out on it's clock outputs.
Good to know.... and good justification to design modules so that inputs AND OUTPUTS can sustain continuous
short to ground, V++, and V--. There were some unbelievers here, IIRC....
I know because I like to mult gates to both inputs (one of which attenuated) in order to derive ARSR shapes, and I avoid doing this with Function out of concern for my gate source. I confirmed this behavior and it drove me to impulsively sell the Function out of indignance, only to buy one back because I missed its other capabilities.
