Mixed use of PicoSDK and PicoScope 6

Post by nethtrick »

Hello, I have PicoScope 6 set up exactly how I need it for an experiment, but I need to start the rapid trigger programmatically, instead of manually clicking the Go button. Is it possible to run PicoScope 6 and get everything set up, then use the PicoSDK to initiate the rapid trigger in a separate process?

Thanks.

Hi nethtrick,

I apologise for the long delay in answering, I have been tied up with other work, so I haven't been able to answer forum posts for quite a while.

If you still need an answer to this, then it is No, it's not possible to use the SDK and PicoScope 6 to control a PicoScope, as one of them will have the Handle for the scope, so the other one will not be able to access it. However, what you can do is use an Automation commend to run the scope, which you could run from a batch file (which you could even turn into an executable file). The command you would need to use is:
picoscope.com /a Run.Pressed=True
And you would need to have a PicoScope 6 open when using the automation command.

Regards,
