Hello Scott, It sounds like you might be trying to measure the full frequency response of a system using a sweeping signal generator? If this is the case, then our current products won't be suitable. The built in signal generator is only for indication, and there is no facility to synchronize the un...

Hi Lance, PPM (parts per million) is a measure of ratio, hence you usually need to decide what chemicals you are measuring first. If you are just after a large particle count, then it's unlikely that DrDAQ will be suitable (none of our equipment have counters onboard). If you can find a sensor yours...

Hi John,

The Automotive kit is designed to be compatible with any standard ignition system with HT leads and the scope is more than fast enough. Check out the webpage for more details:

Hi Joel, The ADC-200 has two BNC inputs (same as any conventional osilloscope), you can use osilloscope probes, or find / make up your own leads ... its entirely up to your own preference. The ADC-200 uses a standard male to female all pins straight-through 25-way D connector cable. Hence the unit i...

Hi,

Yes this problem does exist on the ADC-100, and is being addressed for a future software release. Keep an eye on our downloads page (see the button at the bottom of the page).

Hi Arthurian,

Glad to hear you got this sorted out, the code will work under many compilers, but you do have to be familiar with setting up the compiler (you need to know your work environment).

Best regards

Hi Tim,

You'll need to source a 433+ MHz scope from another supplier. If you type 'oscilloscopes' into a search engine, I'm sure you will find a suitable scope.

www.rswww.com will probably have something suitable.

Thanks Chris,

This driver has been reviewed recently so some of the changes may have slowed it down. I'll forward this on to the relevent department.

At least the older driver works fine in the interrim.

Hi, The digital out is a direct connection from a parallel port pin, therefore its response depends on your PC and windows. I wouldn't recommend using it for timing critical applications. Also ... because single processor PCs are ultimately single threaded in terms of execution order, you would stop...

Hi, Labview 5 is no problem, the example files are downloadable (follow the download link at the bottom of the page). The Labview imports the driver routines from our standard dll files, already installed in your PICO installation directory. If you want to get the most out of Labview, you will need ...

Hi again, I'm afraid I'm not an expert on compiler warnings, you're probably better off talking to Microsoft. One of the customers on the forum may know the answer ... but you are far more likely to get a response on a specific C++ forum (there's plenty around). The only thing I can suggest is to ru...

Hi Jeff, I assume you meant the ADC-16 here, as the ADC-216 does not measure differential signals (it has two single ended, common ground channels). In the ADC-16, the voltages are combined on the analogue side of the ADConverter, therefore the accuracy in differential mode is the same as the accura...

Hi Clive, I just wanted to check that if you are using an ADC without isolation, you aren't using it for voltages above 42V dc (for safety reasons)? The units are tested to standard EMC regulations so they will perform well under normal conditions. However ... they are not screened, so if you have p...
