Re: Run block function: Pre trigger samples

Code: Select all

# Set number of pre and post trigger samples to be collected
preTriggerSamples = 1000
postTriggerSamples = 1000
maxSamples = preTriggerSamples + postTriggerSamples
uuuuuu you do this yourselves with these settings ?
preTrigger = 0 will do the trick.

Re: Which PicoScope is best for logic analyser functions

If you want to see some examples. https://www.ans-net.nl/picotech/20200420-EM289-mic-test.psdata digital decodering I2S and I2C with sample rate of 15MS/sec. at https://www.ans-net.nl/picotech/ are more examples also of CAN decoding etc. This can not be done with the low end 2000 series, you need a ...

Re: Which PicoScope is best for logic analyser functions

for the most extreme situation 1 second before the trigger pulse, what is the data speed of the signal you are monitoring in that case. This will determine the amount of memory you need in the scope to see all the data 1 second before the trigger (and/or after the trigger if needed) P.S. the demo mo...

Re: Networking a Picoscope

Because I wanted to to this for a long time I ordered a DS600 from silex. Startup is a bit tricky because on power on the scope identifies itself as a Cypress WestBridge. After first startup of picoscope software it changes to picoscope device and you need to reconnect in SX Virtual link software. T...

Re: Measurement units

Your scope x-tall is not precise enough to measure this. You need to calibrate your scope to a precision 10mHz source, and then measure the time of 100 or even better 1000 waves of the clock x-tal. correct this with the 10mHz calibration you found and then you can probably have a valid result. These...

Re: 2206B PicoScope 6 persistence mode

You have a CPU with 2 threads and a single core.
From the task manager you can see 50% load.
PicoSocpe software uses a single thread. So from the software point of view you have a CPU speed problem.
Because if 1 thread is taking 100% of its time it will show up in the task manager as 50% load.

Re: PicoScope 2205A MSO can't decode DCC at timebase >2ms

I am afraid you need a scope with more memory, your scope has only 48k of sample memory if using 2 channel you have 24k/S per channel. Every bit needs at least 5 samples (preferred 10). According the specs you can do 1MS/sec in streaming mode (500kS/sec if 2 ch in use) So in streaming mode it should...

Re: Mains Power Monitoring

for that low speed any of the scopes will do. But: You will also need 2 or 3 of these. https://www.picotech.com/accessories/active-differential-high-voltage/25-mhz-700-v-differential-probe Measuring mains voltages is a danger if you do not know exactly what you are doing.

Re: Capture Date/Time in Data export formats

I also have to add if you really want uS or sub uS accuracy you have to calculate the the offset of the scope timing from the accurate second timing, and do this on a regular base (continue). Because with temperature shift the x-tall frequency of the scope will drift somewhat les than 0.01% or so bu...

Re: Capture Date/Time in Data export formats

If you can write your own software then you can do all what you want and a little bit more. For example on CH1 the data you want to measure and want to know the time. on CH2 a precession signal from GPS or something else that gives a short pulse every second and a longer pulse every minute. Then you...

Re: Longtime streaming mode via USB problem

Depending on the sample rate and if your HD can keep up with the writing.
Also the conversion from integer data to ASCII takes up some (a lot) of time if you want to write 1000000 values per second.

Alarm and focus of PicoScope 6

For some reason the focus of the current application switches to the PicoScope software and when you press a space the capturing is aborted.
