5243A Block Modes Not Working

A few months ago AndrewA helped me with setting up the streaming mode on the 5243A. It involved downloading the 5000D SDK. I am trying to rebuild some of my older code that used the 5000A SDK and I cannot get it to work. I've attached an example code, but I'm unsure how reproducible this is. Basical...

Hey Andrew, just as a follow up, did you ever get a chance to respond to my email? Just want to make sure it didn't get marked as spam.

Re: Picoscope 5243A Complex Triggering

Hey Andrew, This is almost exactly what I'm looking for! I've tried in the past to get the streaming mode working, but never really understood the settings. I've set up my pico with a 500kHz burst wave that triggers on the same "Scan" channel in the OP. This Scan is also being sent to the Pico's Ext...

Re: Picoscope 5243A Complex Triggering

Martyn, I'm sorry I'm just now seeing this.I captured this data on Picoscope 6 because it was easy to convey, but I do have a working LabView code for the rapid block mode. My current methodology involved feeding the pico a time to take data, and an adjustable timebase to capture the data that I wan...

Re: Picoscope 5243A Complex Triggering

That is what I was afraid of. Would the streaming mode be useful here? I've tried the example code in LabView, but can never get it to work in an understandable fashion. Also I could not find this information easily, but if instead of using a dynamic window, I used a specified lower capture window, ...

Re: Picoscope 5243A Complex Triggering

Sorry Martyn I just now saw this. For number of channels I'm currently using A for "Signal," B for "Trigger" and Ext for "Scan." If I can break up the long capture into several small ones, I can eliminate the need for "Scan" and instead use A for "Signal" and Ext for "Trigger." I do not have access ...

Picoscope 5243A Complex Triggering

I am using a picoscope 5243A to capture Mass Spectrometry data from an instrument in our lab.The problem that I'm running into is that the MS scan takes somewhere on the order of 250 ms, and the timebase needed for the pico to not miss triggers is at least 100. This leads to a loss of data because e...
