Re: Trigger Multiple Scopes with one pulse

Hi BenC, You can't assign a PicoScope as the trigger for capturing data, without using the hardware trigger in each PicoScope to start the capture, but you can use the Software to start the capture instead of a trigger (by disabling the trigger for the PicoScopes and just calling the command to star...

Re: Is it possible to "Count" Triggers?

Hi midnitejim, You can't count event triggers directly, but you can count them indirectly by counting the captures resulting from the triggers (which, if you have set up the trigger correctly, and the events are not too close to each other, should amount to the same thing) and there are a number of ...

Re: Picoscope Triggering

Hi gerardtouma, Going back to your first post, if you have a PicoScope 6000, and a separate Agilent Signal Generator which you are setting to repeatedly send a signal at a multiple of the sample rate of the PicoScope 6000 you will always get spurious phase delays between an actual sample point and t...

Hi stfarley,

Could you post a psdata file so we can see what you mean.

Re: Audio and analog only, mostly simple circuits

Hi mockingbirdaudio, If you want to look at vectors, then you can use the X-Y mode of display within our PicoScope software (with channel B enabled, go to the 'Views' menu and under 'X-axis' select 'B' instead of 'Time'). Also, if you want to use the scope just as a DMM, add a measurement of your ch...

Re: Thermocouple Compatibility

Hi Raji2018, As long as the thermocouple has a standard connector and is of a Type supported by our TC-08 data logger, you should have no issues using it with our data logger. If another manufacturer uses the correct alloy specified for the thermocouple Type, then its behaviour should not vary from ...

Re: Industrial Machine Troubleshooting

Hi broncosaurs, What you need then, is a 4 channel PicoScope that can perform a logic trigger on those channels (i.e. respond to an event on channels A, B, or C), capture data from analog and digital channels, with pre-trigger data, at potentially hazardous voltages, which can be written to a file. ...

Re: Trigger frequency

Hi Nermash, Could you explain exactly what you mean by Trigger Frequency? Our trigger is a single mechanism that responds to a single shot event. You can't set it to trigger in a cyclic fashion from one single shot event, so it will not have a frequency of operation. However, you can set it to respo...

Re: PicoScope 4262 noise floor has significant spurs

Hi Dan, I apologise for the delay in responding, statistics has played it's part with the law of averages, and it was my turn to have a week off with the flu bug that has been circulating! The issue with the doubling of data in the written file is associated with the specific case where the file is ...

Re: resolution enhancement

Hi Duncan, When using our PicoScope 6 software in Scope Mode, Resolution Enhancement replaces a number of time domain samples with a single time averaged sample that is equivalent to the average value of the many samples it is replacing. This is done using a filter that sweeps across the collected s...

Re: Parallel DrDaq with Parallel to USB Adapter on Windows 10

Hi AFussi, Unfortunately, the parallel version of our DrDaq data logger is not compatible with 64-bit operating systems. So, if your version of Windows 10 is 64-bit then you won't be able to use it on that machine, with that version of the operating system. If you choose to use it on another machine...

Re: PicoScope 4262 noise floor has significant spurs

Hi Dan, First of all, I exported the data from your psdata file to 3 CSV files and the first entry in the CSV file is the second bin (the first bin is not included to minimize the DC contribution). The last value (which is the DC component you refer to) is clearly a minor error in pulling informatio...

Re: PicoScope 4262 noise floor has significant spurs

Hi Dan, Regarding the repeating values, when calculating the Values for the Spectrum plot, the FFT produces 2 identical spectrums mirror'd around the zero frequency axis. This is what you get from the Fast Fourier Transform, i.e. a negative frequency spectrum as well as the positive frequency spectr...
