Re: Picoscope 6404D Acquisition Time

Hi nwford, To answer your questions, yes you can have the scope acquire a number of traces at once and then transfer them to the PC over USB, using Rapid Trigger Mode (see the red circle in the Screenshot below). Using this mode the delay between traces is of the order of 1 microsecond of less. When...

Re: Type C High temperature thermocouples

Hi Laurence,

Yes the TC-08 thermocouple data logger will work with an S-Type thermocouple. The S-Type has a lower sensitivity than the K-Type so, although it can measure high temperatures, it will only use a small part of the range of the TC-08.

Regards,

Re: Trace averaging

Hi Sensorman, It could be argued that (1) there is only 1 triggering Mode applicable to Channel averaging (which could make input channel averaging a bit more confusing), and (2) there are 4 buffered functions that would have to be added to the input options (which could make the input options a bit...

Re: Signal not visible in graph picolog 6.1.16

HI Ralf21,

Could you send a diagram of how you have the NTC connected up (along with an image of your setup), tell us what NTC thermistor you are using and how you are linearizing the data, and then post your PicoLog data file here.

Re: Can I use the Picoscope as a X/Y writer

Hi Speedyswede,

Yes you can use our PicoSopce 6 software to capture at least 1 minute of data and display an x/y plot which can then be converted to an image for printing.

Hi HPC,

Could you make sure that you have the Properties Pane displayed (by going to Views->View Properties) and then take a screenshot of your PicoScope 6 window, and post it here.

Re: is it possible to continues awg triggered with oscilloscope

Hi Itchy, You can do what you ask, but you can only have one trigger per capture. So in the Signal Generator, you would have to tick the checkbox for 'Triggers' to make them active, then change the 'Cycles per trigger' to 5, and change the pre-trigger to 0%, so that you can see 5 whole waveforms.

Re: Amplifier Wattage/power Calculation

Hi EasyStreet,

What is your reason for wanting to display the power? Is it:
  • 1/ to benefit your buying choice through personal testing?
    2/ to ensure compatibility with a specific set of speakers?
    3/ just out of curiosity?
    4/ something else?
Regards,

Gerry
