Re: Slow triggering/slow sample rate override

Hi pselvey, Recently, I have seen instances of what you are describing, on occasions. I am looking into this regarding a bug fix request. In the meantime, a temporary workaround that resolves it for me is, temporarily switching to a fast Timebase value (i.e. switching to Fast Sample Mode from Slow S...

Re: Setting sampling frequency in PicoScope 5442D

Hi Vincenzo, It is possible to lower the data rate in your code. For Streaming Mode, the USB 3 transfer rate for PicoScopes entirely depends upon the rate that you are sampling the data. There is a practical Maximum of 125MS/s for 8-bit, or 62.5 MS/s for 12 to 16 bit modes, in order to be able to gu...

Re: PSD to CSV, does it

Hi shilpamalik,

Yes, the psdata file stores the complete state of the picoScope Mode you are using, at the time of saving the file.

Re: A new 2000 Series USB 'scope for Mercedes diagnostics

Hi Ray,

This forum is focused more on Test and Measurement.

I would suggest posting your comment on our Automotive Picotech forum here: https://www.picoauto.com/support/, where your likely to get a more relevant response.

Re: Running PicoScope on Microsoft Windows Server

Hi Christoph, No, but it's possible to run multiple instances of PicoScope 6 on the server, and have the hardware PicoScopes connected to wired or wireless USB hubs (such as this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silex-600-USB-3-0-Device-Server-network/dp/B01G9SYGLU/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=silex+e1335&qid=1...

Re: 2204A Earthing

Hi john, If you're not working with potentially dangerous voltages or currents, then yes it is possible. You would have to find a common reference between the representative circuit of the item being measured and the common of the PicoScope, so that you have a return path for the current. However, t...

Re: Temperature measurements with PT-104 (USB)

Hi ikaranin, There is no way to synchronise the software and hardware (you would have to have the computer generating timing for the data logger, which would have to be over some expensive custom hardware connection, because USB has far too much latency), just as there is no other hardware link, gen...

Re: C++ SDK Application Detect Time Delta

Hi Glenn, You can't know when it was pulsed because there is no time-stamping in the PicoScope 2204A. However, you don't need to know the absolute time it was generated if your trying to measure the response time of a processor or controller. You just need to measure the difference in time between t...

Re: Best Picoscope for Averaging Waveforms

Hi rmayAZ9558, To answer your Questions: Yes, by default, you have a continuous updating average waveform trace using a Math Channel, and this averaging is progressively, cumulatively averaged. So, you're correct in that, once the number of waveform buffers that you have decided to capture have been...

Re: Type C High temperature thermocouples

Hi Laurencetuk, Sorry, got sidetracked there. Actually the C-Type thermocouple is not one that is natively supported in our software. However, what you can do in our PicoLog 6 software is log the raw millivolt values read from the thermocouple and then apply a scaling Table, to convert the values to...

Re: Synchro-Cyclotron data monitoring for proton-therapy center

Hi ictkint, With two PicoScope 4824's you would be able to synchronize the start of your captures (by using a channel on each scope that triggers from the same signal), but you wouldn't be able to ensure that the captures stay synchronized after the trigger, so they are likely to gradually drift out...
