Stop and Go buttons with spacebar and active window

I want a physical key ( e.g. spacebar ) to always toggle Stop and Go when PicoScope is the active window. The current situation is that Picoscope appears to be active, but as spacebar doesn't toggle Stop and Go I guess it isn't active and so I must quickly click on it and then press spacebar. Is the...

Re: Returning from suspend without having to restart Picoscope ?

new laptop, same problem. If laptop goes to sleep, 4444 cannot resume without having USB cord unplugged. The red LED on 4444 stays on until USB cord reconnected. Would appreciate hearing if somebody with 4444 is able to return from sleep and what suggestions Picoscope has about the problem. Per Mart...

Identifying noisy bearing in loud environment with oscilloscope ?

Hi Forum. I have a noisy environment with lots of bearings in which there is at least one bearing that is making excessive noise. I remember using stethoscopes for such things in the past, but I have a 4444 and as NVH accessory is automotive only (???) I wonder what would be a simple alternative ? I...

Re: How do I Label Signals?

and yet this feature exists ( I wonder for how long ? ) in Picoscope 6 Automotive which Pico says shares the same code base as Picoscope 6. So is this really about about "implementation" as suggested by Pico responses in this thread ? Why does it have to wait for Picoscope 7 when it exists in Picosc...

Re: Picoscope software 10MS/s streaming, 4444 capable of 50MS/s

Hi Benno. Good quantification of the constraint. The lack of response speaks to resource constraints. I too would like this answered as this feels like an unnecessary bottleneck.

Re: Win10 PS6 and PS4444 Zombie Lockups

FWIW, I'm not experiencing lockups when using PS6, but I always experience an inability to reconnect automatically to 4444 when laptop awakens from sleep. Usually unplugging USB cable is necessary. I wrote it about here:

"The web service was unavailable..."

comes up at least half the times that Picoscope 6 ( always latest available version) creates an error report which for me is usually when I awaken my notebook after sleep with Picoscope still connected. Is this a web service for error reporting and is it supposed to work ?

Alarm "Run Application" command examples ?

Hi Forum. I'm looking for examples of simple ways to be notified remotely that an alarm ( some trigger condition satisfied ) has occured on PicoLog. I suppose a canned email batch or email to SMS gateway message via command line would work. Anybody configured such a thing on Windows and have example...

Re: Picolog for Picoscope 4444

Glad to have this for 4444, thank you. This software is a great compliment to Picoscope 6 and I find it's usability as a logger excellent. Nice work Pico.

Re: multiple time rulers

More workarounds... you can load a second instance of Picoscope ( but only as Administrator ? so right click when launching otherwise you just bring focus to first instance ) and then you use Windows 10 split screen settings to show multiple Picoscope instances on same display. Doing so allow for vi...

Re: multiple time rulers

Multiple viewport suggestion does work, thanks for making me aware of this. DeepMeasure is also good suggestion although in this case I'm looking at just two adjacent PWM pulses. Thanks for the replies

Re: multiple time rulers

I agree, multiple rulers would be helpful to me. I'm measuring different pulses within the same buffer and having to remove first delta to create second and then comparing the values of deltas seems like a perfect use of computer software.

Re: Returning from suspend without having to restart Picoscope ?

FWIW, for the first time an error report was generated when returning from sleeping notebook. Is such a report useful ? If so, where do I send ?

Re: PicoLog 6.1.6 Beta adds PicoScope oscilloscope support

4824 and 4444 both utilize the same SDK ( 4000 series (A API)) so I can't imagine much work to get working for 4444 if already on 4824. Emails are private and don't communicate interest to others so I'd rather use the forum and see what interest exists from others.

Re: Why a limit of 256KiB on uploads to this forum ?

Thanks for reply Martyn. Just now I tried to upload a 496KiB image ( .png supported ? ) and the upload progress meter moved as it should, but no upload and no message. I'm using latest Chrome. If certain formats supported is there a document that says which ?
