Re: Rapid acquisition in 4 channels

Hi Fran

Would you be able to give some more details about what you're trying to achieve with your 6402C?

Depending on these details I will hopefully be able to give the best way to achieve your aim and solve your problem.

Re: ps5000a with Matlab

Hi Naresh

To use our scopes with Matlab you'll need to download the PicoSDK from our website, https://www.picotech.com/downloads and get the PicoScope Support Toolbox and PicoScope 5000a Instrument Driver add-ons from the Matlab Add-on manager.

Re: Trigger signal channel not to display

Hi If you right click on the display in picoscope and menu should appear where you click, on that menu there should be an option called "Channels". If you click on that then you should get a new set of option open up showing all the channels which have been turned on, to begin with these should all ...

Re: Trigger signal channel not to display

Hi

If you right-click on the scope mode view screen and go to the channels option you can change which channels are displayed on the screen without turning the channel off which will allow you to continue to trigger from channel B still without displaying it.

Re: Some questions

Are you using this line of code after you use the ps5000aGetTimebase,

Code: Select all

set(ps5000aDeviceObj, 'timebase', 4);
This line of code will set the timebase of the scope to the Timebase variable in the line.
We will be updating the documentation to make this clearer.
I hope this helps.

Re: Some questions

Hi Fran The buffer is internal to the device where the data is stored before being transferred at the end of a block capture and then after the transfer it will be held in the Matlab workspace on the PC's ram rather than saved to the hard drive. There isnt a way to tell the scope that you are using ...

Re: Some questions

Hi Do you need to sample at exactly 1 ns sample interval as the 6402C can sample at 800 ps or 1.6 ns but not exactly 1 ns? It is not possible to transfer the windows of data you're talking about exclusively from the scope but it would be very easy to pick out these windows once the data is within ma...

Re: Matlab SDK functions settings explained

Hi anm All the enumeration values can be found in the ps5000MFile.m in either the win32 or win64 depending on your OS.

Re: 5242B powering / macbook pro

Hi, the USB 2.0 Y cable has about 16cm of cable between the two USB type A plugs. I cant see a reason why a thunderbolt 2 to usb3 converter would be a problem for plugging the into as they should allow the device to draw power through it as normal but depending on how it works it may only function w...

Re: Strange Case of a Vanishing Spectrum, The

Hi, after testing with your .psdata file we believe that the reason for the average spectrum disappearing is due to the buffer on the device overflowing when the recorded data cannot be transferred quickly enough to the computer. The high sample rate and the relatively small internal buffer of the 2...
