Re: can not read Photodiode Signal

Hi David, The LabVIEW error "PICO_NO_SAMPLES_AVAILABLE" has now been fixed in these examples, this was related the function calls ps5000ChangePowerSource. You no longer need to set the power option button on the front panel. (You will need to download new copies of PicoScope5000a.llb, PicoScope5000a...

Re: Picoscope 6 must run as administrator?

Hi, You should only need to be administrator to install Picoscope 6 software, not to run it. Is this a company managed PC? This could be causing the issue. Can you send us a trace file- See section - Locating the trace.xml file in-

    Re: Measuring AC with 4444 and PicoLog 6

    Hi, Picolog 6 will detect the TA300 current probe and the 442 voltage probe, using the Picoscope 4444. But Picolog 6 is only able to sample at maximum rate of 1ms (1kHz) per channel. So this is not good enough to clearly see 50/60Hz waveforms, so you will need to PicoScope 6 software for these measu...

    Re: CM3 for higher current 3 phase logging

    Hi, The CM3 input range is 0-1VAC rms, for each channel. The CM3 converts the AC signal on its inputs and returns a rms value. This over the rated input frequency (20 Hz to 1 kHz) These conversions are done in the logger itself. So the logger could be used with any sensor where you are only interest...

    Re: picoscope 2205a trigger does now work well

    Hi, Your front panel does not look like any of the current 2000 examples. ps2000_ready function is returning zero it means the the scope has not finished collecting the data or has not triggered. It may not be triggering at your set point of 12606mV due to the edge rate of the signal. I assume you c...

    Hi, PicoLog 6 does not have a restart capture button/option, as you said you need to click on the 'trash' icon -> 'Delete Data' then click the 'Record' icon. PicoLog 6 will start logging again with the same settings. Note the newer features add in

    Re: Link between PICO2405 and LABVIEW

    Hi, You need to use the correct example that uses the correct dll driver for your scope? Is your scope model the 2205 or the current 2405A ? Check the label on the bottom side of the unit. For the 2205 you need to use the examples here- https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ni-labview-examples/tree/ma...

    Re: Software crashing

    Hi, Does the laptop have the power saving options turned off? Is it running off battery for this period? Some laptops will turn off USB ports to save power. Picolog 5 software is now end of life. And has been replaced with Picolog 6-https://www.picotech.com/library/data-loggers/picolog-6-data-logger...
