Re: Trigger Multiple Scopes with one pulse

Hi barab, You can synchronize the the start of a capture by triggering one channel on each PicoScope with the same trigger source, but we currently have no means to prevent or correct the difference between the sample clocks that will cause a drift between the samples. Note that on PicoScopes the Ex...

Re: Supplying PS5444 from separate 5V/3A power supply

Hi A_Gebhart, Does it work when fed from the PSU that comes with the PicScope? You need to check that the correct voltage is available at the PicoScope, and that it hasn't dipped below 4.5V due to battery drain and/or cabling. If the voltage goes below 4.5 (or above 5.5 V) even momentarily, this may...

Re: Grounding

Hi Leonardo, There are 2 significant voltages that you should consider here. The first and most important significant voltage would be one that would be high enough above the ground reference voltage (for the building) so as to damage the PicoScope. In this case you want to be very careful when you ...

Re: Saving Math channels to a file?

Hi Jan, I can't reproduce what you are seeing in our currently released version of the software (6.14.5.4585). Could you post a copy of the exact error message you are getting (e.g. from a posted screen shot). In the meantime, as a workaround, you should be able to go to the Math channels menu, sele...

Re: 5444D MSO for Win10, no suitable device found

Hi grmask, Could you answer the following: What has changed since the device was last working (including Linux distro components, VM Software version, Windows 10 updates, version of .NET being used, and PicoScope 6 version)? How long ago was the device last working? What distribution of Linux are yo...

Re: how to connect scope on USB from UWP app

Hi Berol, To get the code to work you need to be fully aware of the startup process that you need to follow in order to successfully get control of the PicoScope. The startup code needs to first of all find your connected device on the USB bus, and then get its handle by opening it. If your implemen...

Re: Save measurement data on Mac

Hi neal, Sorry, my mistake, Deep measurements are not available for our 2000 series PicoScopes. Unfortunately, again, the measurements are not duplicated in our example code that we have for our Software Development Kit, so you would need to create the code for the measurements. Another option you c...

Re: Interface to Control Picoscope

Hi Mula, The easiest way to use simple automation, e.g. to start, stop and save waveforms, is to use the Macro Recorder in PicoScope 6 (under the 'Tools->Macro Recorder' menu option). You just set it to record your actions and it will then create an execution run that you can save as a file to load ...

Re: Loss of buffer data when USB is disturbed

Hi Filip, There isn't, currently, any way to keep the already captured data, once communication has been lost between PicoScope 6 and the hardware. When communication errors interrupt a test, most often the test is void, so there doesn't seem much point in saving invalid data (this is especially tru...

Re: Save measurement data on Mac

Hi neal,

Unfortunately, the CLI is only applicable to windows platforms.

Alternatively, if you can make use of any of the Deep Measurements, then you can export those as a CSV file.

Regards,

Re: Multiple TA058 from single supply

Hi bitbanger ,

Yes, as long as the supply can provide a constant voltage at the combined required current level, you can power all probes off of the same supply (without any grounding issues).

Regards,

Re: Macro Recorder Edit

Hi Red, Yes, editing directly in the Macro Recorder window is much more limited. As mentioned previously, you can only make small changes in time (as you have found out), and if you try and make larger time changes, the values either revert to what they were before you made the change, change from m...

Re: Macro Recorder Edit

Hi Red, I'm not 100% sure why one macro file works and the other doesn't, as they both have events set to run simultaneously (which could be a problem), but it could be because you have 2 events starting simultaneously in the second file while you only had 1 event starting in the first file. Alterna...

Re: Pico amp probe

Hi Cozen, If it has input ranges including 1V, then yes. You may have to get adapters for it (e.g. BNC to 4mm plugs, if it doesn't have a BNC input connector and the current clamp does have one) and you may also have to manually convert from Volts to Amps (or mA) if the fluke has no way of scaling t...
