Data collection with the PicoScope

Post by mrosema6 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:01 pm

Hi,

I'm new to PicoScope. I was trying to collect voltage and current ripple test data with my Picoscope and two strange things happened. One, when I saved the data as .psdata files, the plots showed up blank when I retrieved the data. However the data was still there because I was able to save a .csv file and see the data. Also is there a reason why the end of one frame won't match the beginning of the next frame? I getting sizeable differences in data between all my frames, especially for my current readings. But in between frames, I see no such jumps.

In general use the scope will collect a block of data, download this to the PC, then collect another. There will be gaps between the blocks where the scope is being rearmed for the next collection.

Can you send a psdata file with your data to support@picotech.com and the team will be able to explain what is happening with your specific settings.
