Re: Continous edge counting

Hi tfreudi1, On Timebases of 100ms/div or longer PicoScope 6 switches to slow sampling mode were (where the data is streamed to the computer instead of sent in blocks). So, the end of a stream is the end of the collection of data (which is why it restarts). The point at which the sample mode switche...

Re: Low signal level in Spectrum option

Hi STMN Sorry for the delay in answering. I'm assuming that by 'filter curve' you mean response curve for the filter, in which case you can do what you ask by using some software created by another one of our users that performs a frequency response analysis, see here: https://bitbucket.org/hexamer/...

Re: ps4824 different timebase/downsampling for each channel

Hi Andreas, Sorry for the delay in answering (I meant to get back to this as there were changes being implemented in our tools, but it slipped through the net :-( ) If the sample rates that you need are not faster than 1kHz then you can use PicoLog 6 to give you different sample rates on the channel...

Re: Custom EMF probe frequency response calibration

Hi Darko, Sorry for the delay in answering. To answer your first question, tools that help you to perform better measurements, such as reducing the impact of the unwanted signals so that the signals of interest can be measured more precisely and/or accurately are a welcome addition. Tools that allow...

Re: Subtracting Average Spectrum

Hi Richard, Sorry for the long delay in responding, (it has been a hectic month and sometimes we can't get back to everything that we would like to in a timely manner). I can appreciate your desire for more specialized software, but the driver is what controls and communicates with our hardware, whi...

Re: Triggering from AWG

Hi jswanson, Could you post a capture of your AWG waveform, so that we can consider what may be possible. Unfortunately, it was decided that the intended implementation of custom decoding may cause more problems than it would solve, so that is no longer going to be implemented in PicoScope 6. Regard...

Re: PicoScope 4444 low pass filter API

Hi labnet, To answer your questions: The filter response is a roll-off of 20dB/decade as it's a single pole filter. The filter is implemented in our PicoScope 6 software only. The example files from Github that accompany the SDK only give you essential functions for pulling data from the hardware sc...

Re: Trigger method other than via channel A/B

Hi AnalogueMan, You can't connect the Signal Generator internally to the PicoScope, so the only way to use it would be to connect it to an input channel. The only way to not have to use an input channel would be to use an external trigger input instead of a Signal channel input, but the 2205A does n...

Re: ps4824 different timebase/downsampling for each channel

Hi agry, Unfortunately, our PicoScopes only have one sample clock and clock divider for all channels, so you would have to just use the fastest sample rate required by any one of your sensors as the sample rate for all of them. It would mean that you would have less available buffer memory for sampl...

Re: Subtracting Average Spectrum

Hi Richard, Thanks for your detailed feedback on a non-established potential application area for our PicoScopes. We are always interested in new and interesting ways of using our products and welcome informative constructive feedback. Currently we only plot a 'Linear' Spectrum that has had coherent...

Re: Custom EMF probe frequency response calibration

Hi Darko, You can use the low pass filter in the custom probe to roll-off from 1Hz (as you need a low pas roll-off of 20dB/decade and the filter in the custom probe is a 1-pole low pass filter). However the custom probe wouldn't be able to give you a resonant peak to counteract the notch in the freq...

Re: Subtracting Average Spectrum

Hi Richard,

Could you just explain your reason for needing to see the actual process of the waveform being averaged over time?

Re: Multiple Pico use

Hi Forda,

Unfortunately, what you require can't be done.

PicoLog 1000 data loggers can't collect their own data. They need to be controlled by the software that they were designed for, which is PicoLog (which only runs on a computer, not on the data logger).

Regards,

Gerry

Re: How to install picoscope on Macbook

Hi kaito, Yes it is possible, but be aware that, for the current Mac version of PicoScope 6, not all of the functions available in the Windows version have been implemented in the Mac version. To install and run the Mac version you just need to download and install mono https://www.mono-project.com/...
