Re: PicoScope 3000: Getting a sampling time of 1ns or lower

Hi, Error code 5043 is (5043 - 5000) = 0x0000002B hex. PICO_INVALID_SAMPLE_INTERVAL = The sample interval selected for streaming is out of range. In streaming mode the 3206D is limited 125 MS/s (SDK) due to the USB controller in the scope. This rate shared between all enabled channels. 125 MS/s is 8...

Re: Set up condition for stopping capturing the data

Hi Link, From what you describe you want to configure the scope to run in streaming mode, but this only allows for one trigger event and cannot be reset! So it may not be worth trying to configure a trigger. You could look at writing your own code to detect multiple trigger events. FYI- To setup a t...

Re: Set up condition for stopping capturing the data

Hi,
Which model PicoScope do you have?
Can you post image of an example waveform you want to capture?

All the trigger types are listed on pages - 158 - 6.7.2.1 Advanced Triggers dialog -

Re: PicoScope 2204a, PicoLog 6 on Raspberry Pi 4

Hi, PicoLog 6.1.13 onwards only works on Raspbian Buster. We recently tried to force a sudo apt dist-upgrade from Stretch to Buster and broke the OS. So the advised route is to download the Buster ISO fresh from the RaspberryPi site. Of course we still have legacy versions of PicoLog, anything up to...

Re: How to detect the Current Probe Programatically through labview in pico 3000 series scope

Hi, The BNC probe interface on all the 3000 series scopes are completely passive. There is no way to detect the probe connect. So using a current clamp or sensor, the scaling will have to be coded yourself. This scaling could fixed or controlled via front panel button etc. Especially if you have a c...
