Re: Premature Data Collection with ps5000aStop in RapidBlock

Hi Hitesh,
I have sent the code via mail.
I have tried ps5000aGetNoOfProcessedCaptures(), it returns 0 before and after ps5000aStop().
Greetings and thank you in advance,
volke

Premature Data Collection with ps5000aStop in RapidBlockMode

Hi all, we want to recover data from our Picoscope 5244B in rapid block mode before all segments have been written. In the documentation ps5000apg.en r3 on page 11, it says: 7a. To obtain data before rapid block capture has finished, call ps5000aStop and then ps5000aGetNoOfCaptures to find out how m...

Re: Temperature Dependency of Picoscope 4824

Thanks for the answers! We noticed the settling behaviour at startup but we are actually more concerned about the general temperature dependency, as we might conduct measurement outside at lower temperatures. I guess we have to account for that, I just wanted to make sure we don't miss any other imp...

Temperature Dependency of Picoscope 4824

Hi all, while measuring RMS Voltages with our Picoscope 4824s, we have noticed a drop in the voltage in the minutes after startup. We now believe we have chased this behaviour down to the temperature behaviour of the ADC-Chip. The first image shows the general behaviour at startup (y-axis is RMS Vol...

2 Questions about sample rate and output values of 4824

Hi everybody, we have 2 Picoscope 4824s and are very happy, but there are two odd things we don't understand about the API and/or the driver. We use Python and the ctypes library. This is all in Streaming Mode. I'll try to be as general as possible, but I can provide more code on request. 1. The des...
