Hello Gorm,

I have successfully tried your setup and wonder if you have remembered to select 'File' > 'New data' before attempting to record?

The trigger level that you select is the actual trigger level and, trigger arming occurs 10 lsb earlier.

Hello Francois, The TC-08 yields 16.25 bits of noise-free resolution. Please refer to the specification http://www.picotech.com/thermocouple.html The number of decimal places is user adjustable. Please read section 5.1.8 of the user guide for details http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/plw044.pdf R...

There is no straightforward advice on the use of resolution enhancement, other than to try 0.5 a bit at a time. Section 7.7.2.1 of PS6 user guide and the following link http://www.picotech.com/education/oscilloscopes/advanced-triggering.html provide an explanation of trigger hysteresis and, in the c...

Hi Adam,

The problem here is that only zero crossing points can be determined, and therefore, the max, Min and Avg will increasingly merge over many cycles.

The solution is to place a complete cycle between a pair of rulers and select the measurement 'Between Rulers'

What is the source of your signal and how have you demonstrated that the problem lies with the EL037 rather than your signal?

Hello Dave, Please let me summarise: OK, by "appropriate logger", do you mean hardware or software? Can I take it that Pico do not offer such a thing? PicoLog is the software and TC-08, ADC-24, ADC-11/12, etc are hardware. "If you wish to measure flow with PicoLog, then you may use frequency, voltag...

Hi Alex, I’ve noticed that you are applying a full 4-bits of resolution enhancement which will have a significant low-pass filtering effect on the displayed signal. Further, it is highly probable that the scope is triggering on an area (such as spike) that is removed from the displayed signal as a...

Alex, Examination of your files indicate that the behaviour in your application is due to the trigger hysteresis level of the PS2203. The choices are to increase the trigger threshold to around a minimum of 12 counts above the level of the dip in the trigger waveform (around 32 PSI?) or, upgrade to ...

Dear Guest,

Our software does not support 64-bit Windows operating systems, though we are constantly reviewing that.
