3405D Capturing nonexistent spikes

I have a 3405D and using it to capture a dc wave. The issue I am having is that on every rising and falling edge there is a spike that it displays as well. I have had the signal hooked up to a traditional scope, and the picoscope at the same time, and the spikes are only present on the picoscope. I'...

2406B Unable to set Channels C and D in labview

Just got a 2406B, and I noticed that "PicoScope200aSettings.vi" does not have an output for setting Channels C and D, which means they can't be converted to constants and save the value for those channels once the program is closed. Going into the Settings vi the channels can be enabled and work cor...

Re: Creating a LabVIEW executible.

is the path to the ps2000Wrap.dll set to '..\..\Program Files (x86)...' or is it the absolute path i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Pico Technology\SDK\lib ? That was the issue. A couple functions didn't have the absolute path linked to them. Once I changed them to the correct location it built right awa...

Re: Creating a LabVIEW executible.

I've attached a snippet of the error I am getting. I tried downloading just the base 2000faststreaming, not changing anything and just building it exactly as it is downloaded, and I got the same error.

Creating a LabVIEW executible.

I have a VI that is created and working how I want, and want to turn it into an .exe so it can run on computers without labview installed. However, it keeps giving an error when trying to build the exe, and was wondering if there is any specific settings pico requires to be able to be built?

3405D Trigger Issues

I'm trying to set up the external trigger on a 3405D. I'm using the 3000aExampleBlock vi, and have included the advance triggering vi into it. What I would like to happen is on the trigger have it start capturing all four channels together. At the moment I have not been able to get the external trig...

New 3405D reading voltage low?

We just got a new 3405D, and when hooked it up to do initial testing with it the voltage is reading lower than it should be. Instead of being around 5v it is at .5v, so I'm thinking the range on it is somehow off. I've tried using it in both picoscope 6 and labview and in both cases it gives .5v ins...

Question about block mode

I'm currently looking around different options, and have a question regarding block mode. Lets say I get the 3406D, which has a memory of 512MS. Now does this mean that I could sample 4 channels at 10 nanoseconds per sample for 1 second, and have it be continuous data? For 1 second at 10 nanoseconds...

Possible to pull in PicoScope6 measurement functions?

I'm looking to create a piece of software in either labview or vba. I'm looking through the documentation, and was wondering is there a way to pull in measurement functions from picoscope 6, or do the DLL just provide the functions for gathering data? I would like to be able to use the duty cycle me...
