Re: Detail of how does AWG on Pico 5442B work

Note the AWG update rate for PS5000B/D units is 200MHz so this is the maximum frequency that can be generated. The term 'arbitrarywaveform' is your buffer of values/points for the AWG. These are passes as int16_t values, but the AWG resolution for PS5000B/D is 14 bits (output step size approximately...

Re: Calibrating the three-axis accelerometer (PP877)

I have just tested a new PP877 accelerometer, and it works correctly as per the datasheet. The full range is 0-2V per axis -5g to +5g respectively. So for each axis, you get ~1.1V axis facing up to ~0.9V axis facing down. Axis as marked on the sensor. Do you have the scope DC coupled? If you think t...

Re: Error - can not start PicoScope

Our development team have identified the issue. It is related to file signing. We are working to find a work around but this will be fixed in a coming release of the software. Are you running any anitvirus software? You could try disabling it to see if this is causing the issue. Also have your IT de...

Re: Measure DC-Values at "Ruler 1"

Hi Georg,

Unfortunately there is no way to do this. You have manually line up all your voltage rulers for each channel with a time ruler.

Re: Model 2205A + microphone

Condenser Microphone like the one one you mentioned require a Amplifier Circuit. You could simply use a cheap PC microphone, the type with a 3.5mm stereo jack plug. If you buy 3.5mm stereo socket and connect it to a 3-5Vdc supply. Connect '+' in series with a 2k2 resistor to the 'ring' and '-' to th...

Re: PS4824 Streaming + Aggregation

The PicoScope should be able achieve this level of down sampling. The 4824 has maximum streaming rate of 160 MS/s total across all channels So with all 8 channels would give sampling rate of 160 MS/s / 8 = 20MS/s = 50ns interval If you pass in 50ns for the sampleInterval argument into the function p...

Re: Saved data not displaying and recordings seem unstable

Hi, Could you please update to version 6.1.9-beta. https://www.picotech.com/downloads/_lightbox/picolog-6-beta-for-windows The back end database has now been replaced which was causing performance issues with big captures with a large number samples. This should resolve your issues. Full bug fixes a...

Re: TC-08 one channel shows only -270

Hi,

Please email us at support@picotech.com with the unit details, serial number and your contact details. We will need issue a returns number, to have the unit repaired.
So the channel always displays -270 with or without a thermocouple?

Re: Pico 5243D - Sync scope acquisition with AWG signal output

This is possible by configuring the AWG to be trigger by software and can be run continuous in a loop. But the main issue is rearm time of the scope can be anywhere from 10-60ms, with a same capture settings, as I found out in testing this. This caused by the scope having to transfer the data over t...

Re: DLL's for Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Express

Hello Andreas, If you have downloaded and installed the SDK, there should be no need to add the dll to the project. As the SDK install will the dll locations to the windows 'PATH' variable. What model PicoScope do you have? Which example are you trying to run? https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-vb-...

Re: Several questions about serial decoding

Serial decoding features are not available in the SDK dll's.
You would need to write your serial decoding code or use 3rd parties.

Re: Calculating time difference between two signals

With DeepMeasure you can set this up to do 'time between two signals'- -Set the trigger to Channel A -Setup DeepMeasure on Channel B The start and end times are referenced to the trigger on channel A. By adjusting the trigger level and the threshold in the DeepMeasure you should be able to get measu...
