Re: libpicoipp installation error on linux and Raspberry Pi

Update for libpicoipp issues. Installation on x86 should be fixed now. Or if not be available on the next release of PicoScope 6 for linux. You can try installing PicoScope 7 version if wish to - https://labs.picotech.com/rc/picoscope7/debian/pool/main/libp/libpicoipp/libpicoipp_1.3.0-4r130_amd64.de...

Re: LabVIEW picoscope output different from Picoscope 6

Hi, First I find out the sample rate and number of samples the scope is capturing in PicoScope 6. Open the properties panel- 'View' Menu - 'view properties'. Next Adjust the LabVIEW control for- PreTriggerSamples and postTriggerSamples to equal that of PicoScope 6. Find the timebase value that retur...

Re: Channel Settings to do Probe x10.

The probe interface on the 2000 series passive.
There is no scaling option that supports x10 probes in the API/dll functions.
So you need to add your own code to scale the channel voltage values, multiple by 10.
You could add a buttom to switch this on and off for each channel.

Re: csv export failed with error

You should be able to something like this mathematically, but haven't tested in Picolog 6- Greater than 4 sign(sign(A-5)+1) NOT Greater than 4- abs(sign(sign(A-5)+1)-1 And add it all together- ( sign(sign(A-5)+1) * (Condition1) ) + ( ( abs(sign(sign(A-5)+1)-1) ) * (Condition2) ) So ( sign(sign(A-5)+...

Re: Macro on spectra

Hi,
You can recorded a marco to save the spectrum captures to file.
You can create a delay by editing the marco time stamps events.
But I would do this by calling the marco from the command line with a script (batch file, python etc) as macros don't support loop functions (for, while etc).

Re: PicoSDK for Mac

FYI- The current version of the SDK package (PicoSDK-10.7.21.211.pkg) does not contain any shared libraries (DYLIB) apart from a few (pl1000, picoipp). I have checked the previous version has all the DYLIB files and uploaded to this our gdrive- PicoSDK-10.7.19.191.pkg- https://drive.google.com/open?...

Re: Getting the SDK up and running

I have tried to use the shared library importer tool, in the past but had no success. I know some customers have managed to get the tool to work but don't know what they change to do this.

Re: Running several acquisitions in a single VI run with 2204a

Hi, Yes once you enter the loop the scope will capture the data continually until the Stop function is called. You can't have two loops for each channel just one for all channels. Yes I think you have misunderstood how the streaming mode works. It may be easy if you can explain what you want to do w...

No this cannot be done by the scope. All the waveforms have to be transferred to the PC and averaged.

Resolution enhancement / moving average filter

This is how 'Resolution enhancement' works- If you collect the following data samples from the scope- s1,s2,s3,s4,s5,s6,s7,…..,sn For ½ bit you replace each sample with the average of two values (s1+s2)/2, (s2+s3)/2, (s3+s4)/2, (s4+s5)/2, (s5+s6)/2, (s6+s7)/2, (s7+s8)/2,……, (sn+s(n+1))/2, For 1 bit ...
