Re: How does PicoScope use external scripted program cursors?

Hi xianbaownag, Unfortunately, this isn't supported in PicoScope 6. We only have CLI functions for specific mouse selections of long standing functions. Also, I'm guessing that you mean position the cursor at a specific X-axis value (which you would need complete control over your display to perform...

Re: picoscope 2207 win 10

Hi ianes,

Yes it will. You can use the latest PicoScope 6 software for it (as shown below):
PS6 download for PS2207.png
...which runs on Windows 10, and which you can download from here: https://www.picotech.com/download/softw ... _14_36.exe.

Re: Pico 2204 and hantek 65

Hi rudzis2, We use Custom Probes for scaling of Voltage and Current Probes that don't use our standard ranges (and even if you were using the correct ratios, you have to be careful because the limits also need to be specified). If you post the specs, (or a link to them) for your Hantek probe, I can ...

Re: Questions about 5244D MSO frequency measurement

Hi oasis2016, The Automatic Frequency Measurement from the Measurement statistics tool is not wrong, it's just not what you were expecting. The problem happens to be that you're applying the measurement to a corrupted waveform. Let me explain exactly what I mean by that. The Automatic Frequency Meas...

Re: Cannot choose ENABLE FILTER on PicoScope 6

Hi hellochipboi, If you're measuring a constant (steady state) PWM signal, then you can also capture many waveforms (using a Repeat Trigger) and then use Waveform Averaging to reduce the noise (see here: https://www.picotech.com/library/oscilloscopes/waveform-averaging). This, again, would be a Math...

Re: Frequency Generator not Outputting Correct Amplitudes?

Hi aiyabunni, Are you sure you don't have a connection problem. The first plot is just the input noise of the scope, not the 20mV sinewave output of the Generator. I would check your connections ,then set the SIg Gen to generate just a DC level output with a DC Average measurement of the output. The...

Hi Yande,

As this is Language specific (doesn't look as if it benefits Forum members) it's being answered on your support ticket.

Re: Cannot choose ENABLE FILTER on PicoScope 6

Hi hellochipboi, In some of the older versions of PicoScope 6 there were some options greyed out in the Measurements that were planned but not implemented. So if it's greyed out, unfortunately, you can't use it. That aside, the measurements applied to Channel A are of the raw data, so any software m...

Hi Yande,

I forgot to add that the Matlab example files on Github (see here: https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ps5 ... ent-driver) have examples of streaming code that you can look through, to see how it is done.

Re: Matlab Resolution is worse than Picolog 6 Software

Hi Yande, To answer your questions: 1/ Streaming is way of transferring the data to the computer, effectively in real-time, as it is being acquired by the hardware PicoScope. When streaming data to the PC, the data is transferred to the buffer in the Driver. It is the responsibility of your applicat...

Re: Bursts of noise with 4444/441/PicoLog6

Hi Paul, Unfortunately, you can only use one form of PicoTech software communication, to a Picotech hardware Data Acquisition device. So, you can only use PicoScope 6, or PicoLog 6 or your own software application (built with the SDK) to communicate with a PicoScope or PicoTech Data Logger. This is ...

Re: Bad output from a device - claims from manufacturer

Hi populusnigra, I would try and communicate the issue to the manufacturer of the Varigamma device as it is clearly reversing the polarity of the signal by the time it gets to the output. Ordinarily, you could argue that you could just use it in the reverse polarity state, by switching the contacts ...

Hi brucep,

Could you post your data file created in PicoScope 6, so that we can see what you're referring to.
