Re: max sample rate for 2206B is 16ns by ps2000aStreamingExample.py function

Hi richk449 , It sounds like you're using Rapid Trigger Mode in PicoScope 6 (where you get the little silhouette of a Hare in the bottom right of the display indicating how many Rapid Trigger captures you are performing at once). Could you post the psdata file so that we can confirm what you are doi...

Re: Quality factor calculation

Hi Karl, Sorry for the delay in responding. The answer to this post required quite a bit of work, so I had to wait until I could set aside some time to do it. As the derivation of a Damping Coefficient or Quality-factor is used in so many aspects of Engineering and Science, I had to agree that we sh...

Re: Read raw mV value from DrDAQ's pH channel from the SDK

Hi MaximeDL, Sorry for the delay in responding. This one took awhile to resolve because it required sifting through legacy code in the driver for the DrDaq, which was written some time ago (and our development team are over extended, pushing hard to get the next version of our Software out, among ot...

Re: Logic Triggering Using A Threshold and A Level

Hi dfergenson,

Okay, it's a bit to hit and miss to try and decipher what is going on from images. Could you post data files of the conditions that you setup, and explain what you were expecting to happen from each one.

Regards,

Re: Rogowski Integrator Performance

Hi mathestro, Sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately, we have no other Rogowski coils, and no means of adapting the ones that we have. I had a look at the example images that you posted and I couldn't devise a way to differentiate between the desired waveform and the undesired ringing/level changin...

Re: Command line option to Add Measurement?

Hi AJJ. Sorry for the late reply (I have been working through a backlog of Help desk tickets and forum posts). To answer your question, the CLI was initially created to perform in-house testing, but has long since been replaced with custom software. It was released to the public along with the Macro...

Re: The real-time data collection was lost over time

Hi yasu, The PT-104 has no onboard memory. PicoLog 6 polls the data logger for the converted data at the interval that is set for the sample interval (if it is too quick then you start getting the same values, if it is too slow them you start missing values). So, to narrow down the cause of what is ...

Re: Logic Triggering Using A Threshold and A Level

Hi dfergenson, When you deactivated the trigger on Channel D, Channel A is firing and capturing D going low which is the start of the hold-off period. So A and D triggers are not being seen in your capture, even when you deactivate D, because the D trigger is 8ms away (i.e. the rising edge that you ...

Hi ColdPower, Sorry for the delayed response, we have been very busy on our help desk, so it's only now that I'm able to clear up some outstanding posts.

Re: Import .csv

Hi ruckb,

There is no import function in any of our software (apart from importing csv files as custom waveforms for our SigGen/AWG), deliberately, to restrict the software use to our hardware.

Re: Capture a dynamic time measurement between two different channels

11/06/21 UPDATE A recent customer query has highlighted some information that needs to be added here. In the previous posts it was assumed that the measurements would be between square shaped pulses. Of course, it could be possible that these are rounded pulses (e.g. due to the filtering effect of t...

Hi Kis, Our documentation refers to this as waveform averaging (as described here: https://www.picotech.com/library/oscilloscopes/waveform-averaging) which, as described, can be done across buffers of the same PicoScope Channel, by averaging each displayed sample position in PicoScope 6 using the Av...
