Re: Maximum Segments at 4227

Hi Mathias

It's not possible to count the number of triggers during the rapid block capture.

Re: Rapid Block Mode LabVIEW PS4224

Hi

The 4000 example works for two channels, so it should be straightforward to get both channels working for the 5000.

What exactly are you having problems with?

Re: Maximum Segments at 4227

Hi Mathias My previous reply was a bit confusing, sorry! You can't get the data until all of your captures are complete. If you stop the capture early, you won't be able to get the data. If it's a feature that you require (to be able to abort the collection and access however many captures have been...

Re: Maximum Segments at 4227

Hi Mathias If you are using rapid block mode, you can only access the data once collection is complete and you need to specify the number of captures in advance. Any calls to GetValues or GetValuesBulk will read the data from the device, which is available until you call Run again. You will only be ...

Re: ADC 100 serial not working with Excel drivers

Hi

The unit must be closed before it can be re-opened. For some reason, this is missing from the example.

Just add

Call adc100_close_unit(port)

after the call to adc100_stop

Re: functions to verify the trigger and channel settings

Hi

The value of triggerEnabled enabled appears to not be changed by the dirver.

I have submitted a bug report.

Thanks

Re: functions to verify the trigger and channel settings

Hi

There aren't any functions to check the settings. All you need to do is check the the returned status code is PICO_OK (0). If any values are out of range or there are any other problems, the status code will be non-zero

Re: PS4000 Series - Callback Function Pointer for MATLAB&LABVIEW

Hi Martin

Yes, I meant ps5000RunBlock (although it is the same for the 4000 series oscilloscopes)

I don't know anything about calling DLLs from Matlab, I'm afraid.

setting the function pointer to NULL certainly works in C and LabVIEW.

Re: ps4000.xls

Hi

All you should need to do is set the thresholdUpper to your desired threshold value ((5V / range) * 32764).

The direction is already set to rising (2).

Unfortunately not. The old serial TC-08 does not have its serial number stored on the device.

Re: 5203 Arbitrary Generator

Hi Martin The comment in the console example is incorrect. The signal range should be 0 to 4095 (I have changed this in the example). When you call ps5000SetSigGenArbitrary, the waveform buffer can be between #define MIN_SIG_GEN_BUFFER_SIZE 10 and #define MAX_SIG_GEN_BUFFER_SIZE 8192 The phase count...

Re: Why use ps3000_get_timebase for block mode?

Hi I thought I could just work out the settings and use the ps3000_run_block call Yes, that's correct. You don't have to call GetTimebase. The GetTimebase function is there so you can get the timebase code from the desired sample interval. This avoids having to calculate the timebase code and also m...
