Re: Mains power analysis

Hi Scoop, Yes you would be able to use the current clamp (if you zero out any offset) as long as you get it calibrated on a regular basis (we usually recommend annually to start with, until you become familiar with the period of time that you can use it for before the readings start to become inaccu...

Re: Saving waveform in defined time

Hi Tom, It's not possible to set the value to exactly 5 minutes, but you can set it to 3 minutes and 20 seconds, or 8 minutes and 20 seconds. You just need to set the Timebase value (in the text box, just to the right of the house icon at the top of the display) to either 20s/div (for a total of 200...

Re: generating a staircase signal script with AWG

Hi yves_mazzon, Before I discuss how to get the values you mentioned, you should make sure that you have enabled the Properties Pane in PicoScope 6 (which allows you to see, at a glance, all of the currently set values for the most important properties regarding how the scope is set up to capture da...

Re: Pico PT-104 Data Logger Ground Issue

Hi SOUQUEY, If you put a signal into channel 1, how does it look in terms of amplitude compared to the other channels? Could you turn off the power to the scope (turn off the PC if it's just a USB connection) short the tip to the ground clip on channel 1, and then try sitting in the chair and then g...

Re: Continous edge counting

Hi tfreudi1, On Timebases of 100ms/div or longer PicoScope 6 switches to slow sampling mode were (where the data is streamed to the computer instead of sent in blocks). So, the end of a stream is the end of the collection of data (which is why it restarts). The point at which the sample mode switche...

Re: Low signal level in Spectrum option

Hi STMN Sorry for the delay in answering. I'm assuming that by 'filter curve' you mean response curve for the filter, in which case you can do what you ask by using some software created by another one of our users that performs a frequency response analysis, see here: https://bitbucket.org/hexamer/...

Re: ps4824 different timebase/downsampling for each channel

Hi Andreas, Sorry for the delay in answering (I meant to get back to this as there were changes being implemented in our tools, but it slipped through the net :-( ) If the sample rates that you need are not faster than 1kHz then you can use PicoLog 6 to give you different sample rates on the channel...

Re: Custom EMF probe frequency response calibration

Hi Darko, Sorry for the delay in answering. To answer your first question, tools that help you to perform better measurements, such as reducing the impact of the unwanted signals so that the signals of interest can be measured more precisely and/or accurately are a welcome addition. Tools that allow...

Hi Richard, Sorry for the long delay in responding, (it has been a hectic month and sometimes we can't get back to everything that we would like to in a timely manner). I can appreciate your desire for more specialized software, but the driver is what controls and communicates with our hardware, whi...

Re: Triggering from AWG

Hi jswanson, Could you post a capture of your AWG waveform, so that we can consider what may be possible. Unfortunately, it was decided that the intended implementation of custom decoding may cause more problems than it would solve, so that is no longer going to be implemented in PicoScope 6. Regard...

Re: PicoScope 4444 low pass filter API

Hi labnet, To answer your questions: The filter response is a roll-off of 20dB/decade as it's a single pole filter. The filter is implemented in our PicoScope 6 software only. The example files from Github that accompany the SDK only give you essential functions for pulling data from the hardware sc...

Re: Trigger method other than via channel A/B

Hi AnalogueMan, You can't connect the Signal Generator internally to the PicoScope, so the only way to use it would be to connect it to an input channel. The only way to not have to use an input channel would be to use an external trigger input instead of a Signal channel input, but the 2205A does n...

Re: ps4824 different timebase/downsampling for each channel

Hi agry, Unfortunately, our PicoScopes only have one sample clock and clock divider for all channels, so you would have to just use the fastest sample rate required by any one of your sensors as the sample rate for all of them. It would mean that you would have less available buffer memory for sampl...
