Re: Save measurement data on Mac

Hi neal, Sorry, my mistake, Deep measurements are not available for our 2000 series PicoScopes. Unfortunately, again, the measurements are not duplicated in our example code that we have for our Software Development Kit, so you would need to create the code for the measurements. Another option you c...

Re: Interface to Control Picoscope

Hi Mula, The easiest way to use simple automation, e.g. to start, stop and save waveforms, is to use the Macro Recorder in PicoScope 6 (under the 'Tools->Macro Recorder' menu option). You just set it to record your actions and it will then create an execution run that you can save as a file to load ...

Re: Loss of buffer data when USB is disturbed

Hi Filip, There isn't, currently, any way to keep the already captured data, once communication has been lost between PicoScope 6 and the hardware. When communication errors interrupt a test, most often the test is void, so there doesn't seem much point in saving invalid data (this is especially tru...

Re: Save measurement data on Mac

Hi neal,

Unfortunately, the CLI is only applicable to windows platforms.

Alternatively, if you can make use of any of the Deep Measurements, then you can export those as a CSV file.

Regards,

Re: Multiple TA058 from single supply

Hi bitbanger ,

Yes, as long as the supply can provide a constant voltage at the combined required current level, you can power all probes off of the same supply (without any grounding issues).

Re: Macro Recorder Edit

Hi Red, Yes, editing directly in the Macro Recorder window is much more limited. As mentioned previously, you can only make small changes in time (as you have found out), and if you try and make larger time changes, the values either revert to what they were before you made the change, change from m...

Re: Macro Recorder Edit

Hi Red, I'm not 100% sure why one macro file works and the other doesn't, as they both have events set to run simultaneously (which could be a problem), but it could be because you have 2 events starting simultaneously in the second file while you only had 1 event starting in the first file. Alterna...

Re: Pico amp probe

Hi Cozen, If it has input ranges including 1V, then yes. You may have to get adapters for it (e.g. BNC to 4mm plugs, if it doesn't have a BNC input connector and the current clamp does have one) and you may also have to manually convert from Volts to Amps (or mA) if the fluke has no way of scaling t...

Re: Buffer for the AWG

Hi Ian, Yes this is usual. It is the natural roll-off of the circuitry, and is why you see frequency specifications for analogue Channel inputs quoted as 0-xHz (-3dB) (sometimes they are quoted without the '-3dB' qualification, in which case it is implied). Most simple analogue circuitry (creating a...

Re: Implicit SetBandwidthFilter in ps5244d (ps5000a) API?

Hi gamaches,

Could you send in your code for a run, and a screenshot of the plotted data, so that we can have a look at exactly how you have set up the capture (if you would prefer you could send it in to our helpdesk at support@picotech.com).

Regards,

Re: Macro Recorder Edit

Hi Red, Just so that you know, you can make slight changes to the times in the Macro editor, but if you want to make significant time changes then you need to save and edit the psmacro file. The psmacro file is an xml file, and the time is saved as absolute time hrs:mins:secs.thousandths, so you hav...

Re: PS3000A_ID_Streaming_Example application fft

Hi SG95, If an FFT was calculated using individual, or small groups of samples to plot small parts of the spectrum, gradually building up the complete spectrum over time, then it would be convenient to calculate and plot streamed data as it is being received. But when you perform an FFT you are tran...

Re: Macro Recorder Edit

Hi red03,

I don't see a problem with editing values to beyond 3m20s in the macro recorder (and saving and reloading them to use again).

Could you post your psmacro file and tell us what PicoScope you are using.

Regards,

Gerry

Re: Parallel recording of low and high frequency data

Hi Nepomukkk, If you are in a Spectrum view then the bandwidth you set is for all channels, so you can't perform live Spectrum captures on 2 channels using different Bandwidths. However, what you can do is use 2 different types of Spectrum views on data once it has been captured, as follows: 1/ Turn...

Re: ALARM-Capture Buffers Full - excess files

Hi paul, If you want 128 buffers of captured data written to a file repeatedly, which you can stop by hitting the stop button, then you can do that by adding a 'Restart capture' action to the end of your action list. I have created and attached a psdata file using your data file/settings that does a...
