Re: Picoscope 6 install into Lubuntu

Hi,

Can you confirm what version of Lubuntu this is? And if this is a 32-bit or 64-bit version of the OS.

Re: PicoScope 4262 streaming in labview

Hi Bartek, On the front panel in the streaming example you can set the sample rate under the 'Acquisition Settings' section. Set 'Desired Sample Interval' to 250 and 'Time Units' to ns, giving 250ns = 4MHz sample rate. The actual 'Sample Interval' is returned on the front panel, you may want connect...

Re: Pico 5243D - Sync scope acquisition with AWG signal output

Yes you can do this in the same way with the Rapid Block Bulk example. As before there is no trigger set on the scope. This gives the fastest Rapid Block capture for the scope. I would first adjust scope timebase and number of samples (pre and post) in the 'Rapid Block Acquisition Settings'. Then ad...

Re: Measurement table showing strange values

Hi, The Min, Max, and Average columns are calculated from the last N waveform buffers in the 'capture count' column. You will notice if you stop and restart the scope, the number waveform buffers in top toolbar increase to the maximum set (default is 32) You can change in- 'Tools' menu -> 'Preferenc...

Re: Pico 5243D - Sync scope acquisition with AWG signal output

Here is the working setup and code relating to this post. As this is a question we offer get asked. Hardware setup- Connect the require channels. The AWG output can be optionally connected to a input channel. Software- optionally set the scope trigger settings as per normal, or just leave the trigge...

Re: drop-down vert scale issue

Hi,

Does the Dell M4700 support hidpi screen resolution feature? This could be causing the issue.
Here are some possible solutions-

Re: impedance calculation - Power Factor

These maths channels won't in FFT mode in PicoScope 6.
So I would try using the FRA4Picoscope with this new tool-

Re: Accessing Raw Data

Goto the 'Configure Data Table' dialogue by clicking on the table tab, and cog wheel or click 'Configure table' button. Set the table data settings 'Output sample rate' to use the fastest sample rate you have set on your channels. And the then click on 'Last' button to select the latest values for a...

Re: impedance calculation - Power Factor

We now have a formula to give a RMS value using a maths channel. sqrt(integral(A^2)/T) Adding '+freq(A)-freq(A)' to it stops the start of the maths channel starting at a lower value. When using the measures on these maths channels you need to set 'between time rulers' and move time rulers to exclude...

Re: Detail of how does AWG on Pico 5442B work

Note the AWG update rate for PS5000B/D units is 200MHz so this is the maximum frequency that can be generated. The term 'arbitrarywaveform' is your buffer of values/points for the AWG. These are passes as int16_t values, but the AWG resolution for PS5000B/D is 14 bits (output step size approximately...

Re: Calibrating the three-axis accelerometer (PP877)

I have just tested a new PP877 accelerometer, and it works correctly as per the datasheet. The full range is 0-2V per axis -5g to +5g respectively. So for each axis, you get ~1.1V axis facing up to ~0.9V axis facing down. Axis as marked on the sensor. Do you have the scope DC coupled? If you think t...

Re: Error - can not start PicoScope

Our development team have identified the issue. It is related to file signing. We are working to find a work around but this will be fixed in a coming release of the software. Are you running any anitvirus software? You could try disabling it to see if this is causing the issue. Also have your IT de...

Re: Measure DC-Values at "Ruler 1"

Hi Georg,

Unfortunately there is no way to do this. You have manually line up all your voltage rulers for each channel with a time ruler.
