Hi John, There's no reason why you couldn't do this, although we don't have any example code ourselves. I'm not sure how to do this with VB, but there are loads of resources available to help you out. This site is dedicated to doing just this: http://www.vbip.com/ Hope this helps to point you in the...

Hi Naoshi, The ADC-11 Linux application compiles easily on any Linux station I have tried. Perhaps there is something wrong with your compiler/OS installation. Have you tried rebooting your Linux workstation and trying insmod again? I know that the application works on Red Hat 7.2, as this is our ma...

ECG Information

Thanks for the input Steve,

One of my collegues found this info which shows how to compensate for the noise signal by generating a ground plane of noise on the leg and inverting it (basically the same as steve suggests).

Hi Peter, The best answer to your first question lies in the help files tc08.hlp (located in the Start Menu | Programs | Pico Technology once you have installed the windows application) This contains information on how to convert values. The Linux driver does not have the capability to change the re...

Heart Monitors

Hi Alex, I'm not an expert in this area, but I believe that you would need something like the conductive gel pads that you see in hospitals (anyone ... feel free to contradict me here). I would guess that either a good degree of shielding or filtering would be required since mains frequency signals ...

Linux software Compilation

Hi Naoshi, Sorry to hear this isn't working straight away for you. I have Linux 2.4 here and have recently compiled from the Picopar.tar ' make ' file. The application compiled without problem, and seems to be very robust. Maybe there is a problem with the compiler you have on your system? ... it wo...

Hi Dan,

Does the ADC-11 trigger correctly in PicoScope (you hint at this but do not state it explicitly)?
Try it in Auto-Trigger mode.

Hi,

I'll have a look into this. I've not used the driver yet myself, so it may take some time to modify a program to do the testing. I will post something here when I get some results.

Kind Regards,

Large Formatted Displays with DDE

Hi Jan, One of my colleagues came up with a good idea. You can use DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) to display the data in a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel using the following cell formula: =PLW|Current!Value You can format the data in PicoLog to contain the correct number of significant figures, th...

Strange problem this, it may be that the unit (which unit is it?) is filling up with data more quickly than you would like it to (we should be able to work around it if this is the problem). In the Settings | Options menu, click on Advanced and let me know what the ' Maximum Samples per Scope trace ...

Colour Persistance Application

I have tried this capture, but I am not convinced that I have the correct test points on the CD Player I am using. The Analogue Persistance display mode seems to work very well for this, but I am still waiting on advice from Steve as to what sort of trace he expects to see and whether or not you nee...

The unit doesn't provide analogue filtering, but there is a certain degree of digital filtering, you can apply this from Setting | Options , change the Display Mode to: Current (filtered) . The filtering factor cannot be directly modified, it is a product of the screen resoution and the amount of da...

Specific Applications

Hi Virat, 1. What you are proposing here is a highly specific application for profiling the characteristics of a system with a Spectrum / FFT measurement ... because PicoScope is designed as an oscillocope (not a logger), the application you suggest isn't possible to create. 2. Because you are not u...

RM Connect

Hi Paul,

This isn't something we've designed the software to do, and don't really have any experience with :(.

Have you considered contacting RM they have a contact form and also a knowledge base.

Extending PT100 cables

Sorry it took a while to get back to you on this Marion, I needed to discuss some safety aspects with one of our electrical engineers. The extension itself is no problem, our PT100s are 4 wire and hence are compensated for changes in cable resistances. The question arises that you may be using the P...
