Re: Different ADC counts in LabView and Python?

Doh! Just realised that the Pythonic implementation goes through the ADC2mV function... So I'm comparing ADC counts with voltages!

Apologies.

Hello Neil

Yes, both 5V ranges.

Thanks

Different ADC counts in LabView and Python?

Hello all I work in a laser laboratory. We use a photodiode to detect our laser pulses and this signal is fed to the oscilloscope's BNC input. I have a Python program that I have written with the wrapper PicoTech supply. My ADC counts for the laser pulses are below: https://i.imgur.com/mf6HHeK.png I...

Correct way to end a block capture without crashing?

Is there a subroutine that I can use that doesn't crash the PicoScope if I want to prematurely quit a program I'm making? Currently, I just have a Qt button call: # Stop the scope # handle = chandle status["stop"] = ps.ps4000Stop(chandle) assert_pico_ok(status["stop"]) # Close unit Disconnect the sc...

RE: adc2mV and Python's picosdk

Hi there, In the ps4000blockexample of the picosdk module for Python, the maximum ADC count value is given as: maxADC = ctypes.c_int16(32767) However, the PicoScope 4262 has a 16-bit ADC, so, should this not be 65536? In the case that both channels are enabled, is the effective ADC count value reduc...
