Re: Software crashing

Hi, Does the laptop have the power saving options turned off? Is it running off battery for this period? Some laptops will turn off USB ports to save power. Picolog 5 software is now end of life. And has been replaced with Picolog 6-https://www.picotech.com/library/data-loggers/picolog-6-data-logger...

Re: Screenshot and measurements using Pico through NI

Our SDK does not support any measurement features. You would need to write your own code to do this or use LabVIEW functions. Instructions for using LabVIEW with our SDK and example are here- https://github.com/p...

Re: Streaming DataRate

Hi, For streaming with the SDK I would recommend at least a buffer size of 1M samples and calling psXXXXGetStreamingLatestValues function 1/3 to 1/2 of the collect time to full this buffer. So if it takes 1 second to capture 1M samples, call psXXXXGetStreamingLatestValues every 1/3 to 1/2 of a secon...

Re: PicoScope 3000: Getting a sampling time of 1ns or lower

Hi, Error code 5043 is (5043 - 5000) = 0x0000002B hex. PICO_INVALID_SAMPLE_INTERVAL = The sample interval selected for streaming is out of range. In streaming mode the 3206D is limited 125 MS/s (SDK) due to the USB controller in the scope. This rate shared between all enabled channels. 125 MS/s is 8...

Re: Set up condition for stopping capturing the data

Hi Link, From what you describe you want to configure the scope to run in streaming mode, but this only allows for one trigger event and cannot be reset! So it may not be worth trying to configure a trigger. You could look at writing your own code to detect multiple trigger events. FYI- To setup a t...

Hi,
Which model PicoScope do you have?
Can you post image of an example waveform you want to capture?

Re: PicoScope 2204a, PicoLog 6 on Raspberry Pi 4

Hi, PicoLog 6.1.13 onwards only works on Raspbian Buster. We recently tried to force a sudo apt dist-upgrade from Stretch to Buster and broke the OS. So the advised route is to download the Buster ISO fresh from the RaspberryPi site. Of course we still have legacy versions of PicoLog, anything up to...
