Re: Channel setup sample mode

Hi Stefan, To answer your questions: 1/ The way PicoLog 6 acquires samples is to sample faster than the rate that you set (unless you're sampling at the maximum permitted rate). So, when you set the Sample Mode to "Average" and use a sample interval of 5ms what happens is that it will capture as man...

Re: Picoscope 6.14.23.5207 crashes when external power is connected

Hi Benno,

OK that would be a useful test. By the way the trace files you posted must be for a different problem then because they indicate crashes after running that sequence of commands.

Regards,

Re: Picoscope 6.14.23.5207 crashes when external power is connected

Hi Benno, Unfortunately, I don't have a PicoScope 4444 to hand as I'm working from home. So, to attempt to make the exact cause of the crash a bit clearer (so that we can get a faster resolution to this), could you do the following: 1/ Could you start PicoScope 6 and make exactly the same sequence o...

Re: Continous edge counting

Hi tfreudi1, I agree, we don't need to restart trying to solve the problem that you had with our technology. I wasn't trying to convince you that you should abandon what is clearly working for you. I just wanted to have the opportunity to make what IS possible with our PicoScopes crystal clear (you ...

Re: Continous edge counting

Hi tfreudi1, If the problem is that you are using a Timebase that is being reset before you can view the counted number of edges, then why don't you either (a) perform a single capture, so that you can see the counted value, or (b) perform multiple captures, and then scroll through each captured wav...

Re: P6060 probe frequency compensation

High Marcus,

I apologise for the delay in answering (this post got overlooked in the run up to Christmas).

If you still have this problem, does this happen with both Probes or just one?

Re: Measure/calculate CMRR of Audio Opamp

Hi grievousangel, I apologise for the delay in answering (this post got overlooked in the run up to Christmas). For the precision that I assume you will be working with, you would probably need a low voltage active differential probe (to help probe relatively small, non-earth referenced voltages). T...

If you are still looking to do this, then I would suggest sending an email into support@picotech.com and marking it for the attention of the RF team.

Hi Chris,

I apologise for the delay in answering (this post got overlooked in the run up to Christmas).

Unfortunately, the Signal Generator in a PicoScope can only generate 1 signal.

Re: Issue Displaying Waveform at > 500 sec/div Settings

Hi Engineer_1572, I apologise for the delay in answering (this post got overlooked in the run up to Christmas). First of all, the scope does work, in terms of 'live' updating of the waveform, you just need to clear the display first. What you are probably observing is a delay in redrawing the screen...
