Re: 6k series: trigger on aux

Dear Hitesh, we were able to track down the exact reason why suddenly the usual way of capturing self-triggered traces to memory does not work anymore: the reason is I updated the picoscope libraries on the DAQ Ubuntu machine. It seems you have a regression in your libps6000 libraries, and if you as...

Re: 6k series: trigger on aux

Dear Hitesh, no, this doesn't work either. See debug output below. The IsReady returns PICO_NO_SAMPLES_AVAILABLE, also GetNoOfCaptures returns 0. We are really totally desperate to get this working to no avail. I am not sure why you say I should not run RunBlock? Is RunBlock a misnomer? It namely do...

Re: 6k series: trigger on aux

Sorry for late reply but we were busy with measurements and the way how we were using the PicoScope was working OK. Nevertheless, we wanted to perform a similar measurement, but now not externally triggered but triggered with the SimpleTrigger on the trace itself. What is special about this measurem...

Re: 6k series: trigger on aux

Dear Hitesh, We are aware of an issue related to triggering using the auxiliary input with the windows driver which was fixed some time ago so it could be related. We are due to release a new version of the software for Linux so an updated libps6000 driver package should also be available. For us th...

Re: 6k series: trigger on aux

Hi, > Does the issue also occur with the PicoScope 6 for Linux software? Do you mean with the GUI scope? I would say yes, but fiddling with the trigger settings somehow (I cannot reproduce it) makes it work. > The AUXIN connector has an 50 Ohm impedance so please check that the input matches that. Y...

6k series: trigger on aux

Hi, in our DAQ project, which runs on linux 16.04 LTS, we were up to now using a 6403B PicoScope (on USB2). Since we wanted to read-out all four channels, we decided to bring the external trigger to the PicoScope via the AUX channel. The external trigger is a simple NIM signal, ie on DC50 it has 0V ...
