Re: Pulse width low wrong

Hi dosika, Its always difficult to comment on an image alone, especially if it doesn't represent the entire captured data. However, there is likely to be a plausible reason as to why you got the "error" in the measurement on the occasion that your image represents. For instance, if there was also a ...

Re: Automatisation of data extraction from Deep Measure

Hi zlopko, It may have been better to ask this question on the PicoAuto forum, as that is the source of your information, and those guys are using serial decoding a lot more than we are, so they are likely to have information that we don't have. As far as I'm aware, there is no way to automatically ...

Re: Measuring belt slippage

Hi James, This is relatively straightforward in terms of a method and one that springs to mind is:- if the speed sensors on the shafts are detecting rate of rotation, and the shafts are all the same diameter, then you can just subtract each rotation rate of the shafts being driven, from the rotation...

Re: Missing data between waveform buffers

Hi ivinnykov, It's not a bug, it's partly to do with the way you are using it, and partly to do with the physical limitations of capturing data. You may be used to capturing data in a Data Logger, where you just start the capture, and then leave the data logger to just constantly acquire the data an...

Re: Picoscope 2206B

Hi Grommit, You should have no problem driving an LED from the output of Signal Generator. 40kHz is a period of 20us, which for a duty cycle of 20% will give you a pulse width of 4us. The minimum pulse width in a PS2206B would be 1us (maximum frequency of 1MHz), so pulse width in the Arbitrary Wavef...

Re: Read raw mV value from DrDAQ's pH channel from the SDK

Hi MaximeDL, Last time I checked, this was done in the Driver (in order to provide Temperature compensation based on the sensed connection of the DD100 Temperature sensor to the relevant input channel). That was for PicoLog 5, but I wouldn't expect that to be different for PicoLog 6. However, one of...

Re: USB Device Not Recognized -5244D - USB3

Hi BSI, Thanks, Your references to similar issues experienced by other Forum members show that they aren't 5000 series PicoScope related, and we do have similar USB issues with other series of PicoScopes from time to time (there a number of factors involved in the start-up process). However, I didn'...

Re: USB Device Not Recognized -5244D - USB3

Hi BSI, I forgot to ask if you could point out where you saw these issues elsewhere on the Forum, so that we can look at a collective solution to this. Also, the fact that the "working" cable is shorter, seems to suggest that the issue is the USB current capability. Depending upon what you're doing ...

Re: Picolog 1216 input displaying incorrectly

Hi Robert, Could you post an image of how everything is connected up. Could you also post a picolog data file showing the issue. Could you explain in more detail about the effects of restarting the software (what do you mean by resetting the values, i.e. do you mean that inputs that weren't recordin...

Re: USB Device Not Recognized -5244D - USB3

Hi BSI, These sort of issues can be associated with powering the device over USB. So, let's first of all establish what we know (correct me if I'm wrong): The issue has a marginal aspect, because you can get temporary connections to Windows (via the Driver). The Blue Pico cable works for the PS5244D...

Re: Help deciding on PicoScope for FRA for Switch-Mode PSUs

Hi Tim, The problem will be that the Buffer size of the 2204A is too small. I have explained this in detail below, but if you just want the summary, that is towards the bottom of this reply. A Bode phase and frequency plot essentially plots swept Spectrums of values. In order to plot a Spectrum you ...
