trigger ready on 4824 Picoscope

Postby e4411a » Wed Aug 23, 2017 9:33 am

We need to collect data from 2 4824A scopes. We are using the SDK for collecting the data. I wanted to have more details and the usage for the API listed below.

1. IsTriggeready: This is a function of the wrapper. How and when can we use this function?
2. ps4000aIsLedFlashing : What is this used for?

Hi e4411a,

The IsTriggerReady() function is used for streaming mode data collection, and is used to check if the device has triggered or not. A description of this function can be found in the source code file for the wrapper.

With regards to the ps4000aIsLedFlashing() function, below is the definition from the Programmer's Guide:

This function reports whether or not the LED is flashing

The LED will normally be flashing when data acquisition is in process.
