Re: Python Running examples on a 64bit computer with 32bit SDK

Hi

If you are using 32-bit python having the 64-bit SDK can cause issues when running on a 64-bit OS so it would be worth uninstalling the 64-bit SDK and retrying the examples

Re: Single Shot Half-Sine Wave

Hi

For the 5000 series you can't generate a half sine signal on a 5000A but the 5000B and 5000D variants are able to generate this signal type and have the triggers option for the signal generator to be able to generate a single shot of the waveform.

Re: ps2000_get_timebase2

No problem

The 2000 programmer's guide is for the 2204A and the 2205A while the 2000A programmer's guide is for all other current 2000 series scopes

Re: ps2000_get_timebase2

Hi

I've looked through the vb.net examples from our github page and I can't find a ps2000_get_timebase2

Would you be able to post either a screenshot or a code snippet with a few line either side of this function so I can see where it is?

Re: 2204 AWG and stand-alone app?

Hi Steven

We don't have a stand alone app for just controlling the AWG but you could use the API functions in the PicoSDK to create a custom application to do this

Re: Faster PicoLog Sampling Rate

Hi If you're wanting to sample at high rates then using the PicoScope 6 software would probably be more suitable as this functions as something similar to a traditional front end. The PicoLog software is designed for long term logging of data so it has limits on the sample rate to allow this without...

Re: ps6000EnumerateUnits NULL not accepted

Hi The values being passed need to be pointer so a null pointer would be needed for the serials input but the serials length input doesn't accept a null value so you should need to a 0 to this as that is the "length" of the serials input. We do have some new examples for python being created current...

Re: Driver question

Hi

There has been a driver installation bug fix in the latest version of PicoLog 6 available from our downloads page https://www.picotech.com/downloads
Would you be able to see whether this solves the problem you've been having?

Re: ps2000_get_timebase2

Hi

Usually getTimebase2 returns the time interval as a float type number rather than a 32 bit integer type, though the PS2000 driver doesn't have a documented ps2000_get_timebase2 API function.

Where did you find this function?

Re: 2208 Sweep Measurement

Hi

When performing a FFT on a signal to transform it from time domain to frequency domain as happens for the Spectrum Mode in PicoScope 6, you should get a peak at 0 Hz which corresponds to the DC component of the signal.

Re: PS5244B with Only One Channel enabled

Hi

To use the fastest timebase all but one channel must be disabled so they don't measure any signals at all so can't be used for triggering. If you needed to collect data from one channel and trigger from another you would need to use the a slower timebase.
