Re: PicoLog 6.1.18 doesn't show a chart with the data from PicoScope 2204A

Sample interval is the time between individual samples displayed on the graph, not the duration of the logging run. Try setting this to 1 second and you should see data displayed on the trace.

Re: is PS5xxxD the same as my PS5xxxA?

You will find your device listed under the Discontinued Products in column 1 of the downloads,

The primary difference is that the D models are USB3, the A models are USB2.

Re: PicoLog Frequency Measurement

PicoLog 6 samples at only 1kSample/second maximum and does not support Frequency Measurements.

Re: Record a specific time (or number of samples) at each trigger

Rapid trigger kicks in on the faster timebase, I can't remember where the switch is but probably low usecs/div

Thank you for the files.

Our development teams work on a two week sprint cycle and they have added this to the current one which started on Monday. I will be able to update you later in the cycle.

Re: PicoLog, PicoScope and PicoLog1216

I was expecting you to have received a reply so I will chase up.

One point to note is that you are using an older version of PicoScope 6 6.13.15 hence the driver version differences, so it may be worth updating.

Re: Record a specific time (or number of samples) at each trigger

Sounds like you need rapid trigger mode. Rapid trigger mode allows you to segment the PicoScope buffer memory and make acquisitions to successive segments with minimum delay between each acquisition. As the scope does not communicate with the PC between captures, this reduces the gap from millisecon...

Re: Documentation Error: ps5000aOpenUnit

The entry point in the driver code is

Code: Select all

PICO_STATUS PREF2 ps5000aOpenUnit(int16_t* handle, int8_t* serial, PS5000A_DEVICE_RESOLUTION resolution)
as reflected in the ps5000aApi.h header file.

For .Net string is a reference type and it behaves as a reference, so passing by value is correct.

To measure mains with a PicoScope 2204a will require the use of an appropriate category rated differential probe or an isolation transformer. We cannot advise any other approach for this. Even with care accidents can happen. To try any other approach risks damage to the circuit being tested, the sco...

Re: Picoscope 2408 Driver

It looks like you may have PicoScope 6 open from your screenshot, if it is open and connected to the scope the LabVIEW examples will not work.
