Re: High current probes for CM3

Hi, Here are range of clamps, note some have BNC connection and not 4mm banana connectors. You need to use adaptor cable with the BNC connects for the CM3 4mm sockets. I have not listed prices here, but the passive clamps (no battery) tend to more expensive than the active powered clamps. Pico clamp...

Re: PicoScope 2204A with LabView

Hi, You no longer need to copy the dll files. If you done this I would delete these copies. Just install the SDK and download the labview files from the github repository. Full instructions are here- https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ni-labview-examples/blob/master/README.md 32-bit block example i...

Re: Function generator

Hi,
No, the Max. output from our scopes function generators is only +/-2V and some models are only +/-1V.
Also the output frequency resolution will vary depending on which PicoScope model you use.

Re: Generating and Acquiring Signals in LabVIEW in 2208B

Hi, The example to control the Signal generator/AWG for the 2000a API devices is here- https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ni-labview-examples/blob/master/ps2000a/64-bit-examples/PicoScope2000aExampleAWG.vi If you wish to also capture data from the scope channels at the same time you will need to ad...

Re: Acquiring Signals in 2208B

When you say you set the 'overview buffer' that must mean you are running the streaming example? You can set the streaming examples to capture continuously, with the autostop off. Or are you using the block example? As 500MHz sampling is not possible in streaming mode? (2208B 9.6MS/s max in streamin...

Re: Difference between rapid block bulk and rapid block

Hi, 'PicoScope5000aExampleRapidBlock' pulls each segment block of the total capture one at a time, calling 'ps5000aGetValues' each time. So you could modify this example code if you only want a few segment blocks at a time, to process etc, before asking for more.(see PicoScope5000aExampleRapidBlock....

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...
