Re: Slow triggering/slow sample rate override

Sorry, to clarify this, my answer was for a different problem, and posted here by mistake. My answer refers to the Software occasionally freezing indefinitely when using a long Timebase (notably with the PicoScope 5000 series).

Martyn's answer is the correct solution.

Re: System Accuracy Calculations

Hi asauter@gmail.com, OK, as I'm still unclear about your measurement goal, I'll answer your questions directly from your posted query. Regarding your PicoScope 444 calculations and remaining question: Input Range of ±10V = Full-Scale range of 20V, so DC accuracy is 4.2%, and System accuracy is 4.7%...

Re: Datalogging 8 Channel

Hi Woster, I'm a bit unclear about your description. You say that you have split the 24V supply to each sensor and ground, but then you ask if grounding the sensor would improve the reading? Shielding the signal wire that goes to the terminal board, or better still replacing it with shielded cable, ...

Re: Number of Pico Scopes on USB

Hi landisgyrHQA, You can connect up to 20 PicoScopes to a computer, but how many devices you will be able to interact with will depend entirely on your computers data handling capability (which depends upon the number and type of available resources, e.g. Data Processing, Movement, and Storage, etc)...

Hi daubsi,

This issue would be better handled by our Help Desk. So, could you send an email to support@picotech.com, with your description of the problem.

Re: Multiple instances - Picolog 1216

Hi do0mn0ob,

That looks like it could be a software/driver issue. Could you send an email to our help desk at support@picotech.com so that we can look into it for you.

Re: System Accuracy Calculations

Hi asauter@gmail.com, I'm assuming that, you're considering using 4 channels to perform 2 negative and positive measurements, which you will then sum in a Math channel to give you the differential (which is why you ruled out a 2 channel device). However, that's unnecessary because you only need 2 ch...

Re: 10 voltages, only 6 GND sockets

Hi do0mn0ob, All the grounds ARE the same (the multiple GND connections on the terminal board are all connected to one point in the PicoLog 1216). So, yes, you can, in theory, use a single ground for all inputs, it just becomes impractical to try and squeeze a number of grounds into the one terminal...

Re: Best sub-$100 USB Oscilloscope?

Hi Brandon, I can't tell you what the best sub $100 scope would be (ebay would probably be better for that) because a PicoSope would start at $115 without probes. However, I can tell you that, USB based Scopes will give you the best bang for your buck, as you are only paying for the key element of w...

Re: Waveform averaging in PicoScope for Mac?

Hi FLeupold, Waveform averaging in Scope Mode is done in a Math Channel using the average (x bar) Buffer function, however, the Mac version doesn't support the Math Channels of the Windows version. We are looking to provide this in the up and coming new version of PicoScope software. In the meantime...

Re: Python Project for Oscilloscope Automation

Hi bcw962, There are 3 ways to do what you want: 1/ The easiest way to use simple automation, is to use the Macro Recorder in PicoScope 6 (under the 'Tools->Macro Recorder' menu option). You just set it to record your actions and it will then create an execution run that you can save as a file to lo...

Re: Mismatch between raw data and PicoScope6 displayed data?

Hi Ezekiel, I'm assuming that by relative amplitude, you mean peak or RMS so, that aside, I have a few questions regarding sanity checks for your coding. 1/ Have you measured the frequency of the API generated waveform just as a double check? 2/ Have you performed a reasonable number of captures for...
