Re: PicoScope 3425 doing a fantastic job capturing >300V p-p differential surges

Thanks for calling that to my attention. So that is one area the 3425 is better. I did also order two 442 probes... may need to get two more.

PicoScope 3425 doing a fantastic job capturing >300V p-p differential surges

I recently purchased a used 3425 and it has turned out to be the key instrument on this project! We are looking for destructive voltage surges on railroad tracks. The PicoScope 6 software is fantastic and we are logging data 24/7 using alarms, and pushing into the Google cloud from a remote site. Th...

Re: No logic trigger (A||B||C||D) for 3425?

Can the 4444 do this type of triggering?

How to log all active channels with Alarm trigger

Hi, I've been setting up a test case to capture and log to disk using alarms. But I am finding that only the trigger channel (not all active channels) get logged! I have a 4-channel 3425 and want to log ALL the channels at every trigger event. How can I do this?

Test Leads for 3425 differential inputs

Hi, are the automotive leads such as TA128 3m long, or the PP718 set, or the TA200 5m long series, recommended to maintain the differential performance of the 3425? The Leads I have are shorter, about 1 meter, and labeled Alpha Wire P/N 5616B2001 20 AWG and end in red and black 4mm stacking connecto...

No logic trigger (A||B||C||D) for 3425?

Picoscope 6.13.15 help says there is a logic trigger to let me capture on any of the four channels of 3425 exceeding a level. But this feature seems not allowed on the 3425 when I try to use it - there is no such menu. Is there no way to do this on the 3425? What about on other PicoScopes? I could f...

Any hope of autosaving captured events to disk in Linux?

HI, we have an application need to wait unattended for very infrequent (hours, days, or weeks, at least) electrical events, trigger on them, and capture and log to disk analog channels to a file with a timestamp. Then when the next event happens, repeat to a new file. All automatically and unattende...
