5242D: No units found.

Postby flyingman » Fri Jul 13, 2018 12:36 am


i try to run a new PicoScope 5242D on Windows 7 64bit with MATLAB 2014a 64bit.

But i didn't find the PicoSDK for 5242D. I have used the PicoSDK (10.6.12 (64-bit)) of 5242B instead.

Then, i followed the method of "PicoScope Support from Instrument Control Toolbox" in the page"https://ww2.mathworks.cn/hardware-support/picoscope.html"

All 64bit dll and *.m are on MATLAB path.

When running the example "PS5000A_ID_Rapid_Block_Example.m" ,I get the following output:

>> PS5000A_ID_Rapid_Block_Example

PicoScope 5000 Series MATLAB Instrument Driver

caution: Disconnect: No devices found.
error: icdevice (line 283)
An error occurred while executing the driver create code.
No units found.
If the error is not an instrument error, use MIDEDIT to inspect the driver.

Error: PS5000A_ID_Rapid_Block_Example (line 45)
ps5000aDeviceObj = icdevice('picotech_ps5000a_generic.mdd');

I have also tried "tmtool" command in matlab to create device object. Also get the same error "No units found."

Can you help me on this problem? Thanks a lot!

Hi flyingman,

We are currently waiting for a new PicoSDK version to be released which will support the PicoScope 5242D (the PicoSDK version does not support the new PicoScope 5000D models).

The MATLAB Instrument Driver is currently in the process of being updated to support the new PicoScope 5000D models and should be available soon via MATLAB Central File Exchange/GitHub.

If you require any further assistance, please contact support@picotech.com
