Re: PS4824 Streaming + Aggregation

The PicoScope should be able achieve this level of down sampling. The 4824 has maximum streaming rate of 160 MS/s total across all channels So with all 8 channels would give sampling rate of 160 MS/s / 8 = 20MS/s = 50ns interval If you pass in 50ns for the sampleInterval argument into the function p...

Re: TC-08 one channel shows only -270

Hi,

Please email us at support@picotech.com with the unit details, serial number and your contact details. We will need issue a returns number, to have the unit repaired.
So the channel always displays -270 with or without a thermocouple?

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

This is possible by configuring the AWG to be trigger by software and can be run continuous in a loop. But the main issue is rearm time of the scope can be anywhere from 10-60ms, with a same capture settings, as I found out in testing this. This caused by the scope having to transfer the data over t...

Re: DLL's for Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Express

Hello Andreas, If you have downloaded and installed the SDK, there should be no need to add the dll to the project. As the SDK install will the dll locations to the windows 'PATH' variable. What model PicoScope do you have? Which example are you trying to run? https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-vb-...

Re: Several questions about serial decoding

Serial decoding features are not available in the SDK dll's.
You would need to write your serial decoding code or use 3rd parties.

Re: Calculating time difference between two signals

With DeepMeasure you can set this up to do 'time between two signals'- -Set the trigger to Channel A -Setup DeepMeasure on Channel B The start and end times are referenced to the trigger on channel A. By adjusting the trigger level and the threshold in the DeepMeasure you should be able to get measu...

Re: PICOSCOPE 3404B AWG below 1Hz

Increase the number of samples to the maximum it will go, using the right arrow, in the 'Arbitrary Waveform Generator' Window. This will also give the best accuracy for frequency. This worked for the 'AWG set to 50mHz -no longer working.psdata' file you sent in. This is an issue with PicoScope 6, it...

Re: Measurement of Amplitude and Frequency using LabVIEW

Hi, There are no measurement features in our SDK. For say peak to peak use- Use the 'Array Max & Min Function' just subtract min from max value. See- http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/371361P-01/glang/array_max_and_min/ If you want do rms value you use the built in functions- http://zone.ni.co...

Re: PicoScope6000 examples, trigger options doesnt work

Hi, I have reproduced the issue. The reason why its not triggering is because the channel is not enabled. So you will have to create a Channel Settings control for channel D. In the top level vi (PicoScope6000ExampleBlock.vi) select the 'Channel D Settings' terminal on the 'PS6000 Settings' vi block...
