Re: Python SDK - Drop out Triggering

Hi

I have updated the python repository so that both the new and old methods for pulse width qualified advanced triggers should now be possible.

Re: 5244D single rectangular pulse

If you want to generate a single cycle only with the signal generator then you need to set the shots input variable to 1 in the signal generator function you're using.

Re: Different Use of PS4000 Series Matlab Functions in Programming Examples compared to the Programmers Guide

Hi It looks like the last two inputs to SetChannel are not needed and are potentially carry overs from copying and pasting between sets of driver examples. The DriverObject in this acts as the handle as it contains this information. In MATLAB there is a mdd file which is where the main set up of the...

Re: Average mode acquisition in Python

Hi

There isn't a way to average multiple waveforms on the scope itself. Any averaging like this would need to be done on the PC after retrieving the data.

Re: Voltage input limits

Hi The 2000 series has an input range of +-20 V which is the range over which the scope can measure the voltage and anything out of this will be marked as out of range. The overvoltage protection is +-100 V which is the voltage range which if applied to the scope will not cause permanent damage to t...

Re: long time storage

Hi

What kind of time scale are you wanting to save?
What sampling rate do you need over that time?
What scope do you have?

Re: How to read psdata file with C++

Hi

The psdata file format is proprietary so we don't give out the information on it for opening in custom applications.

Re: Changing laptops

Hi

The current software supports Windows 7.

Our software is free to download and use on as many computers as you want so there would be no problem on installing the software on a new laptop.

Re: Installing the python driver bindings

Hi

Currently the setup.py script will look for only the ps2000 files to check you have the drivers installed, you can change this to look for the ps5000 files by changing the name variable on line 16 of the script.

Hopefully that solves the error for you
