Re: 2204A + Serial decoding CAN

Go to Tools->Preferences->Sampling and make sure the slow sampling transition time is at the smallest value 100ms/div or 1 Second. Then ensure that collection time is set to 1 Sec/div and then change the Collection Samples to 2GS so that it collects as many samples as possible, and turn off the deco...

Re: What function is the best for getting state?

I am still not sure why you need a keep alive function.

Will you have already issued an OpenUnit call within your application to get a handle ? If so the scope will be alive and ready to go.

If someone has disconnected the scope then any access to the device will report an appropriate error.

Re: 2204A + Serial decoding CAN

Try setting 1 S/div to and 10 MS and you will get streamed data of 10 MSamples across the 10 seconds on 1 single screen.

Re: PicoScope 6 stops receiving data

We would need to see the psdata file with the data and setup to be able to comment.

Which of the trigger modes have you tried, and which ones work ? None, Auto, Repeat, Single, Rapid

Re: New Picoscope 2000 series owner

As mentioned the 2000 series scopes are not designed for Automotive use and as such will not work with our Automotive Software and DIagnostic Tools.

For information we also have a dedicated Automotive Forum

Re: Wrong voltage dysplay

As our scopes have a 1 MOhm input impedance you would read a 1V output from a 50 Ohm pulse generator at around 2V.

Re: 16bit streaming mode 62,5 MS/s @ 60 MHz- 5k or 6k Series

16 bit mode is only available on a single channel with the 5000 series devices, and the 6000 series are 8 bit only.

I would suggest contacting support@picotech.com to discuss you requirements in full detail and the team will be able to advise on suitable options.

Re: Missed PicoScope.exe after restart of computer

Is this possibly some over aggressive virus protection working on your PC ? and you just need to mark the Picoscope.exe file as safe.

Re: Wrong voltage dysplay

What is the output impedance of the pulse generator, and what is the input impedance of the analog oscilloscope ?

Re: Picologger version 6.1.13

Have you pressed the red record button on the top bar, this will flash when it is actually recording data.

You will then get asked questions about your recording, continuous, fixed time and stop, fixed time over writing data.

Re: Picoscope retaining file handles

Tried with the same PicoScope build and Windows 10 64 bit Build 1903 OS build 18362.449 and it seems to be working fine for me. The file saving uses standard Microsoft components so it could be a .Net issue but can't be sure. Could you take a quick video showing it falling over, or alternatively sen...

Re: Picoscope 6 across different models

The majority of features are available across all models including serial decoding which works with both analog and digital channels. You just need to ensure that you can get around 8 samples for each bit of the serial bus. One main feature "Deep Measure" is not available on the 2000 series as it re...
