Re: Reading measurements from different views fails

Hi Gotthard, Automation was never intended as a complete solution for customer use, it was originally a CLI added for testing purposes of our PicoScopes. So, unfortunately, customers have the wrong expectations about them, i.e. that they are a fully implemented feature. The reality is that there is ...

Re: Using a picoscope to log data

Hi Harry, PicoScopes are not the correct instrument for measuring temperature with a Thermocouple. Most importantly, they don't have a 'Cold Junction Compensation' mechanism, or even an easy way to connect to a board that has (for a description of Cold Junction Compensation, go here: https://blog.be...

Re: Trace Disappears When Zoomed

Hi BCG, The zoom function can be limited by the amount of data available to perform the plotting. If you use the fastest possible sample rate of 500MS/s (for 2 active channels), on a Timebase of 2ns/div, you will have only 10 samples captured (see below data file). For this set up the displayed zoom...

Re: Decoding data captured by Picolog

Hi Yarash, You can only decode Serial data automatically using our PicoScope 6 software. If your data acquisition device is not a PicoScope or if you can't capture enough data for your requirement, then you would need to either use our Software Development Kit to develop your own decoding applicatio...

Re: Low signal level in Spectrum option

Hi STMN,

That would be a question to pose to the users and designer of the software here: https://www.picotech.com/support/topic14311.html?&p=143080&hilit=hexamer#p143080.

Re: PicoLog loosing connection to ADC-24

Hi Christoph, I'm assuming then that 6.1.14 behaves the same as 6.1.13 on your setup (as you didn't mention whether or not it loses the connection also), and that you have a disconnection that stays disconnected. So, could you have windows Device Manager open when you run 6.1.14, and look specifical...

Re: Feature request: Trigger on I2C address & data

Hi Joe, Using our PicoScope 6 Software, Serial Decoding is not performed until a complete buffer of data has been captured. So, this means that using the current method, you can't trigger the data because it will already have been captured. We would have to perform Serial Decoding as the data is bei...

Re: Trigger Time

Hi Moonwalker,

This is not currently available in PicoScope 6, but is intended for an up and coming version (unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to say exactly when that will be, but pay close attention to the next Beta version).

Re: Issues with Band-pass Filter function amplitudes

Hi andyb1997,

How are you measuring the amplitude of the noise (manually using rulers, or automatically using measurement functions), and by 'amplitude' do you mean peak-to-peak or rms?

Re: PicoLog loosing connection to ADC-24

Hi Christoph, The latest version of PicoLog 6 (6.1.14) still has the Auto (re)connect feature. The only reasons that spring to mind as to why it would no longer (re)connect and continue the logging are: 1/ The reason it disconnected in the first place hasn't gone away 2/ The drive is full 3/ The pro...

Re: Trigger Time

Hi Moonwalker,

If you mean time since the Trigger occurred for the current capture, then that value is not needed because it will always be zero. PicoScope 6 performs an adjustment of the timing of all samples so that the Trigger passes through zero.

Re: Trigger Multiple Scopes with one pulse

Hi Barab, You'll find the Timebase accuracy quoted as ±2 ppm (0.0002%) here: https://www.picotech.com/oscilloscope/5000/picoscope-5000-specifications under the 'Horizontal' section of our specs, which means that, in the worst case scenario, your 2 PicoScope 5444D's could be as much as 4 ppm (0.0004%...

Hi Berol, So are you saying that UWP acts as a virtual machine (and is it running some form of windows if you need Microsoft authentication)? In windows authentication is normally taken care of by driver signing, so if it is a version of Windows, then you would need to get it authenticated (as far a...
