Re: Different Use of PS4000 Series Matlab Functions in Programming Examples compared to the Programmers Guide

Hi It looks like the last two inputs to SetChannel are not needed and are potentially carry overs from copying and pasting between sets of driver examples. The DriverObject in this acts as the handle as it contains this information. In MATLAB there is a mdd file which is where the main set up of the...

Re: Voltage input limits

Hi The 2000 series has an input range of +-20 V which is the range over which the scope can measure the voltage and anything out of this will be marked as out of range. The overvoltage protection is +-100 V which is the voltage range which if applied to the scope will not cause permanent damage to t...

Re: long time storage

Hi

What kind of time scale are you wanting to save?

Re: How to read psdata file with C++

Re: Changing laptops

Hi

The current software supports Windows 7.

Our software is free to download and use on as many computers as you want so there would be no problem on installing the software on a new laptop.

Hopefully that solves the error for you
