Word or Phrase to Describe How Frequently a Value is Measured

When writing software for instrumentation, it is often required to specify a small gap of time between taking measurements. Say for example that 250 voltage measurements must be taken, and they must be 1ms apart.

Is there a word or phrase in electrical engineering that describes that 1ms interval that takes place between the voltage measurements?


I would call it the sampling period or measurement period. For short periods like 1 ms, specifying the sampling frequency is another option (1 kHz).

The name is Sampling Rate (not specific to audio only). This is exactly the frequency samples are taken.

The word is "period". Could be used in the expression "sampling period", in your case.
