Hi, Yes, you can run up to 10 USB TC-08s on one PC under one instance of PicoLog. You will need 10 USB ports though. Plug-in as many as you want and when you start setup make sure you tick the box for "Use multiple converters". All connected TC-08s should be found by the ennumeration process, after ...

Hi,
Our base model 2203 scope can take 2 million samples at 200KS/sec for 10 secs. That is a sample interval of 5uS and is more than enough for your application since it is 400 samples per cycle.

Hi, We do not have any automatic routine for converting .plw files to .txt or .csv files. I am surprised that you cannot get the copy to clipboard function to work. Are you using the "Select" button before clicking on the "Copy to Clipboard" button? If you have Excel open, you can then simply paste ...

Hi, There is no easy way to copy a calculated measurement from multiple screens of .psdata. I can see no reason why you are getting a problem capturing at time bases slower than 100mS. The screen display will be different as it switches to streaming mode but it will capture. I suggest you send me a ...

Hi, I am afraid that the DrDaq and USB converter combination has never been a good one. There is little that can be done. The design of the DrDaq is now quite old and not suitable for efficient operation unde the latest operating systems and via USB. Sorry! Our latest USB scopes, including the new 2...

Hi, First, make sure the TC-08 is un-plugged and then re-run the Install from the CD. You will be offered the choice to "Repair, modify or remove" Select "Remove" to un-install eveything. Run the installer again, when asked for the device to install select "TC-08" and on the same page, tick the box ...

Hi, You cannot easily use PicoLog to do what you want. It would be best to use PicoScope6. You need to capture at a high enough sample rate to get good measurements from your signals so set a time per division that gives you a screen-full of data in slightly less time than your required time between...

Hi, Although not ideal from a corrosion point of view, a bare thermocouple should work in water. Your problem might be caused by the fact that the water itself is connected to a different earth than your PC or laptop. Two ways to check this are:- 1/ If using a laptop, unplug the laptop power supply,...

Hi,
I am surprised you cannot cut & paste but have you tried loading your saved data file back into Player and then re-saving as .txt format? That will directly load into Excel.

Hi,
PicoScope5 & 6 are so different in the way they are setup that it is not possible to make the settings files compatible. That is why the extension was made different, so as not to cause confusion. They cannot be converted either. Sorry.

Hi, You can't change the duty cycle on the standard signal generators but the is a way with the Arbitrary Wave form Generators used in the 5203, 5204, 2203, 2204 & 2205. For each duty cycle that you require, you need to generate a text file defining a waveform you want. Loading that into the AWG and...
