Re: ALARM-Capture Buffers Full - excess files

Hi pmohan, Could you draw and post a rough diagram of approximately how you would like the capture to look once saved (using 3 waveforms instead of all 128) including labelling both channels (i.e. channel B as the transmit strobe pulse, if that is the case), and describe what you are attempting to a...

Re: Open source drivers for 2000 series

Hi PrzemoF, You're unlikely to find any open source drivers for our data acquisition devices, as we don't divulge how to communicate with them over USB, and we don't release any essential information about the Firmware (and changes to it that are inevitably made). This is deliberate as the informati...

Re: ALARM-Capture Buffers Full - excess files

Hi pmohan, I'm not quite sure what you are asking. In this scenario, a buffer refers to the waveform buffer split into multiple buffers, where each split buffer holds 1 waveform. So you have split the buffer into 128 buffers, each holding one waveform. when the Alarms function then writes out the ca...

Re: Picolog 6.1.10

Hi Brian, First of all, for anyone else reading this, the FAQ is being referred to is for PicoLog 5, not PicoLog 6. What the comment is referring to is the PicoLog 1000 sample rate of 1ms and the PicoLog 5 sample mode of real-time continuous . Real-time continuous mode is just transferring each sing...

Re: Measure 100% Rise Time

Hi Zalgo,

Can I ask why you need a 0 to 100% Rise Time measurement, as opposed to, say, a 1% to 99% Rise Time measurement (especially as a 0% to 100% rise time for an over-damped 2nd order system is infinite)?

Regards,

Gerry

Re: Measure 100% Rise Time

Hi Zalgo, Not automatically using our measurement tools, which provide you with the 2 standard values of Rise Time measurement. There isn't a 0/100% Rise Time standard because it can take a disproportionately long time to converge on the 100% value of the input waveform (in some cases you may not ac...

Re: Measuring signal delay over a long time

Hi Benno, I don't know what the waveforms look like at a longer Timebase setting, but if they are periodic squarewaves, you can increase the Timebase length to capture one complete cycle, and then use Deep Measure to give you extremely accurate timings for the start of both waveforms. The timings fo...

Re: PicoScope 4824, PicoScope (6.14.5.4585); stops recording, failes saving waveforms.

Hi HellerBts,

I take it that there was no loss of communication between the computer and PicoScope?
Could you post your psdata file (which contains setup data), so that we can do an initial check to see if there is an issue with the software.

Regards,

Re: Audio preamp setup

HI Billy,

For now I would suggest that you use Siemens Sig Gen, as the PicoScope 4262 is currently not able to set an output voltage level for its Sig Gen higher than 1V, and all Test and Measurement PicoScope Sig Gens have a fixed output impedance.

Regards,

Re: PicoScope 3425 Not Reading

Hi delkin,

This could be a fault in the Scope. I would suggest that you send your enquiry into our helpdesk at support@picotech.com where our tech support team will be able to help you further.

Re: Using the Pico CM3 for 3 phase

Hi Kiwi, GPRS does give you always on capability but you may have issues with drop outs preventing the software from confirming that the connection is alive. you could effectively poll the data but then we would need to know how fast you need it. Could you tell us what the source of the mobile 3-pha...

Re: Using the Pico CM3 for 3 phase

Hi Kiwi, To answer your question, after 24 hours of capture, from all 3 channels of one CM3 datalogger, at a rate of 1 sample per second, the size of a Picolog data file will be 1.5Mb. What you are looking to do shouldn't be that hard to setup (cellular modems these days are effortless to use) but t...
