Re: About PicoScope Test CD Optical Pickup RF signal

The 6000C/D models are no longer produced having been replaced by the 6000E although you may find some distributors still have stock. You may be able to get a good deal on one so worth checking as they are still fully supported by us and will be for a significant time.

Re: Problem with CAN-BUS decoding

I would suggest using an Advanced Trigger, Pulse Width with a time of 25usec, and set the position to 5% so that you always get the start of the message.

Re: Channel B not working

By default only Channel A is enabled.

On the top bar you will see it says Auto next to the A, and Off next to the B, select the drop down and enable B.

Re: About PicoScope Test CD Optical Pickup RF signal

I have seen this thread referenced on another topic and I have looked again at the issue. I wasn't able to locate a CD drive to test with, and don't have one available now, so apologies for not coming back before. However a CD to test with is not needed, the issue is quite clear after a little resea...

Re: USB drivers - damaged device ?

Sorry for not seeing the original post, if you are still experiencing problems it may be due to software updates, obviously not with the Windows 7 which should be fully patched to the last version from Microsoft, but maybe some other system update, or an update to the PicoScope software. It is norma...

Re: Channel always overrange

Change the voltage range from 50mV to 20V, and see if that helps.

Please note that the 2204a is not designed for automotive use and can easily be damaged if you probe the wrong signals.

Re: Streaming mode, increase update frequency

Can you provide your code, either here or to support@picotech.com , so that we can take a look at how you have setup the scope and how you are collecting and processing the data.

Re: ADC-20 and ADC-24 Precision Data Loggers

When you did the first capture it was setup as Fixed Length and Stop after Capture.

What you need to do is press the Reset button on the top bar, select delete data, and then you will be able to restart the recording.

Re: Ground lead broken

Which PicoScope probes do you have ?
The kit you have linked is for specific probes, not all probes in our range.

Re: Install for ADC 200 under W10

The software will only support the ADC200, and offer it as an option in any menus, if the operating system is 32 bit.

Re: Picoscope 2408 Driver

Our drivers are not LabVIEW style VISA drivers so you won't see them. What you need to do is to use the coding examples from the GitHub link.

Re: Picoscope 2408 Driver

We haven't used LabVIEW 2012 for a few years so I would suggest you just try. Check if your LabVIEW 2012 version is 32 bit or 64 bit and then download the matching version of our SDK, then try one of the matching examples from https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ni-labview-examples/tree/master/ps200...

Re: Picoscope 2408 Driver

You need one of the two PicoSDK 10.7.18 downloads which needs to match the version of LabVIEW you are using, either 32bit or 64bit.
