Re: Trigger Time

Hi Moonwalker,

This is not currently available in PicoScope 6, but is intended for an up and coming version (unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to say exactly when that will be, but pay close attention to the next Beta version).

Regards,

Gerry

Re: Issues with Band-pass Filter function amplitudes

Hi andyb1997,

How are you measuring the amplitude of the noise (manually using rulers, or automatically using measurement functions), and by 'amplitude' do you mean peak-to-peak or rms?

Re: PicoLog loosing connection to ADC-24

Hi Christoph, The latest version of PicoLog 6 (6.1.14) still has the Auto (re)connect feature. The only reasons that spring to mind as to why it would no longer (re)connect and continue the logging are: 1/ The reason it disconnected in the first place hasn't gone away 2/ The drive is full 3/ The pro...

Re: Trigger Time

Hi Moonwalker,

If you mean time since the Trigger occurred for the current capture, then that value is not needed because it will always be zero. PicoScope 6 performs an adjustment of the timing of all samples so that the Trigger passes through zero.

Re: Trigger Multiple Scopes with one pulse

Hi Barab, You'll find the Timebase accuracy quoted as ±2 ppm (0.0002%) here: https://www.picotech.com/oscilloscope/5000/picoscope-5000-specifications under the 'Horizontal' section of our specs, which means that, in the worst case scenario, your 2 PicoScope 5444D's could be as much as 4 ppm (0.0004%...

Hi grmask,

We may be able to approach this another way, but it would require you emailing our support team on the helpdesk, so could you send your email to support@picotech.com and mark it for my attention.

Re: how to connect scope on USB from UWP app

Hi Berol, So are you saying that UWP acts as a virtual machine (and is it running some form of windows if you need Microsoft authentication)? In windows authentication is normally taken care of by driver signing, so if it is a version of Windows, then you would need to get it authenticated (as far a...

Re: Trigger Multiple Scopes with one pulse

Hi barab, You can synchronize the the start of a capture by triggering one channel on each PicoScope with the same trigger source, but we currently have no means to prevent or correct the difference between the sample clocks that will cause a drift between the samples. Note that on PicoScopes the Ex...

Re: Supplying PS5444 from separate 5V/3A power supply

Hi A_Gebhart, Does it work when fed from the PSU that comes with the PicScope? You need to check that the correct voltage is available at the PicoScope, and that it hasn't dipped below 4.5V due to battery drain and/or cabling. If the voltage goes below 4.5 (or above 5.5 V) even momentarily, this may...

Re: Grounding

Hi Leonardo, There are 2 significant voltages that you should consider here. The first and most important significant voltage would be one that would be high enough above the ground reference voltage (for the building) so as to damage the PicoScope. In this case you want to be very careful when you ...

Could you post a copy of the exact error message you are getting (e.g. from a posted screen shot). In the meantime, as a workaround, you should be able to go to the Math channels menu, sele...

Re: how to connect scope on USB from UWP app

Hi Berol, To get the code to work you need to be fully aware of the startup process that you need to follow in order to successfully get control of the PicoScope. The startup code needs to first of all find your connected device on the USB bus, and then get its handle by opening it. If your implemen...
