Re: Datalogging 8 Channel

Hi Wooster, As I mentioned, just getting some shielded, single core cable, should solve the problem. However, just so that we are on the same page, could you post Picolog data files showing the 'bouncing' you mentioned, at different sample rates, and also post an image (or images) of your setup. Reg...

Re: Can I connect microphone to PicoLog 1000

Hi encepence, Yes you can. However Microphones typically have low level signal outputs, so, depending upon what type of microphone it is, you will probably need some form of signal conditioning amplifier or impedance matching transformer. What type of Microphone is it (e.g. instrumentation or audio,...

Re: Frequency Analysis

Hi Peter, As you haven't posted a data file, I have created one according to your setup, to comment on. If you look at the data file and Images below you can see that the Lowest peak is falling from DC. The plotted results of an FFT transformation have very poor DC accuracy, so this is to be expecte...

Re: Synchronizing trigger of pico 6000 and pico 4000

Hi Guillaume, Yes, the Aux Trigger Input is for External Trigger sources. If you connect the source to both PicoScopes for Triggering, it shouldn't divide the signal by 2 (unless you have very high impedance outputs) but it may cause distortion of high frequency components in the 6000 series Scope (...

Re: Is it possible to make the Picoscope software use complete data for math channels and measurements?

Hi Mmm22, In hindsight, saying "PicoScope 6 is sent both downsampled and raw data, from the hardware, during a capture, and displays the data downsampled sufficiently for the zoom level selected" is a bit misleading for Fast Sampling Mode, and I could have made that clearer. Bennog's description is ...

Re: Persistence Mode and Settings

Hi Martin, No there isn't, but what you can do is use the Macro Recorder to record how you set each mode up, save the macros as files, and then just load the Macro file each time you want to switch between Modes. To find out more about the Macro Recorder, see page 109 here: https://www.picotech.com/...

Re: Synchronizing trigger of pico 6000 and pico 4000

Hi dehangu2710, Why don't you just connect a Channel of each PicoScope to the same trigger source. Both the 6000 and 4000 series PicoScopes have External Trigger inputs (so you don't even need to use a Signal Input Channel), and if you don't have a trigger source then just use one of the signal Gene...

Re: Is it possible to make the Picoscope software use complete data for math channels and measurements?

Hi Mmm22, In PicoScope 6, down-sampling reduces the data transfer time, for the data that needs to be displayed. So when you start a capture and want to perform analysis on the data you can do so, pretty much immediately, rather than waiting for the data to finish transferring. However, when we acqu...

Re: System Accuracy Calculations

Hi asauter@gmail.com, Regarding your Calculations Accuracy on ±20V Input Range is ±0.25% of 40V = ±0.1V. For a measured value of 12V, an absolute accuracy of ±0.1V represents a percentage accuracy of ±0.83%. So you're correct. Regarding the precision resistor When calibrating for accuracy, the effec...

Re: Importance of Linux as supported OS

Hi Justyn, I appreciate how frustrating it must seem to have gone this long without an update, so I apologise for that. There are a number of reasons why we aren't quite there yet. While the cross-platform development makes updates Aeons quicker to implement on all platforms, the overall development...

HI Jag68,

Could you post a diagram so that we can see your hardware setup, and a picolog data file so that we can see your software setup.

Re: Is it possible to make the Picoscope software use complete data for math channels and measurements?

Hi Mmm22, PicoScope 6 software already does use raw (complete) data for Measurements and most Math Channels (the whole purpose of applying Measurements and Math Channels is to measure and manipulate what was actually acquired). PicoScope 6 is sent both downsampled and raw data, from the hardware, du...

Re: Thinking of buying a Pico data logger

Hi Mike,

The PicoLog 1012 Data Logger can't be use without a PC connection. PicoTech Data Loggers, and PicoScopes are all USB based Data Acquisition Devices, that are run from a computer.
