2206B PicoScope 6 persistence mode

Post by Maks »

Hi.In the Persistence mode, the first two seconds is the normal speed of the
displayed signal, but after that it is already slower. Should this be, or can
this be corrected? Or have I configured it incorrectly?

windows 10, PicoScope6_6.14.44.5870

2206B serial number: IU906/0314

I don't know how to place a video here.

Hi.I have tested PicoScope r6.14.
in Persistence mede with a connected
oscilloscope 2206B and separately in demo
mode, in Fast mode: the signal display is
constantly fast, but in Digital color mode and Analog intensity mode: the first two seconds are fast displaying the signal, but after that it is much slower. So the reason: a flaw in the PicoScope r6.14 program. Can programmers correct this flaw in PicoScope r6 or later add this function to PicoScope r7? program?

Thank.

Hi Maks,

This is not what I am seeing. Also, the Demo mode simulation is not a good comparison against using a real PicoScope, with all of the real world constraints associated with that.

Could you create a Video of what you believe the issue is (if you use a tool such as ScreenToGif, you should be able to create a file small enough to post directly on to the forum, or you could upload it to a cloud storage site and post the download link here).

Regards,

Gerry

Hi Gerry.

Yes, I will try to place the video on cloud storage, and give an address for copying.

Thank.

Hi Gerry.

Here is the video file.
You can download the file here:
picoscope-2206B.mp4
https://yadi.sk/i/GZEIq7mMvlRcqg
The problem is not with the computer.
Again delay.
Please look, Is this the way it should be?
Or can you re-install the program online inside this Picoscope 2206B model?

Thanks.

You have a CPU with 2 threads and a single core.
From the task manager you can see 50% load.
PicoSocpe software uses a single thread. So from the software point of view you have a CPU speed problem.
Because if 1 thread is taking 100% of its time it will show up in the task manager as 50% load.
