I have searched the programmer's manual in vain.

I can configure measurements if already on-screen but cannot figure how to add measurements if not present.

Does anyone know the correct command?

The measurements are always there behind the scenes. You can control whether they are displayed on the screen using for example:


And you can configure the measurements using, for example:

MEASUrement:MEAS<x>:TYPe FREQuency
MEASUrement:MEAS<x>:SOUrce CH2
MEASUrement:MEAS<x>:SOUrce2 CH1

I'm not a Tek scope expert and probably shouldn't comment since I work for Keysight (lol), but it seems there's two options. Option 1 is to grab a measurement result for a measurement that's already been made/already on screen, and the other option is to take a new measurement. From page 64:

" To obtain measurement results, use the MEASUrement:MEAS:VALue? query for displayed results or the MEASUrement:IMMed:VALue? query for immediate measurements. "

I suspect you're trying the first option, when you should be looking for the IMMed value instead?
