Issue Details

I want to measure phase shift between two signals in InstrumentStudio™.

Solution

There is no built-in option in InstrumentStudio™ for phase shift measurement.
However, you can use the Delta Time measurement to calculate the time span from when the first edge of the waveform crosses the Mid reference level until the second edge of the waveform crosses the Mid reference level, where the second edge is the second channel.

 

Additional Information

You can calculate the phase shift using this formula:

Phase Shift = (Delta Time between signals/ Wave period)x360

where the two signals have the same frequency.
