Re: Frequency Generator not Outputting Correct Amplitudes?

Hi aiyabunni, Are you sure you don't have a connection problem. The first plot is just the input noise of the scope, not the 20mV sinewave output of the Generator. I would check your connections ,then set the SIg Gen to generate just a DC level output with a DC Average measurement of the output. The...

Re: Matlab Resolution is worse than Picolog 6 Software

Hi Yande,

As this is Language specific (doesn't look as if it benefits Forum members) it's being answered on your support ticket.

Re: Sound measurement

Hi chunkong, If you want to perform a Spectrum plot using an FFT then you will need to use PicoScope 6 software (which you can download, for Windows 10, from here: https://www.picotech.com/downloads/_lightbox/picoscope-6, and which is free to use, subject to the terms and conditions of the License A...

Re: Cannot choose ENABLE FILTER on PicoScope 6

Hi hellochipboi, In some of the older versions of PicoScope 6 there were some options greyed out in the Measurements that were planned but not implemented. So if it's greyed out, unfortunately, you can't use it. That aside, the measurements applied to Channel A are of the raw data, so any software m...

Re: Matlab Resolution is worse than Picolog 6 Software

Hi Yande,

I forgot to add that the Matlab example files on Github (see here: https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ps5 ... ent-driver) have examples of streaming code that you can look through, to see how it is done.

Re: Matlab Resolution is worse than Picolog 6 Software

Hi Yande, To answer your questions: 1/ Streaming is way of transferring the data to the computer, effectively in real-time, as it is being acquired by the hardware PicoScope. When streaming data to the PC, the data is transferred to the buffer in the Driver. It is the responsibility of your applicat...

Re: Bursts of noise with 4444/441/PicoLog6

Hi Paul, Unfortunately, you can only use one form of PicoTech software communication, to a Picotech hardware Data Acquisition device. So, you can only use PicoScope 6, or PicoLog 6 or your own software application (built with the SDK) to communicate with a PicoScope or PicoTech Data Logger. This is ...

Re: Bad output from a device - claims from manufacturer

Hi populusnigra, I would try and communicate the issue to the manufacturer of the Varigamma device as it is clearly reversing the polarity of the signal by the time it gets to the output. Ordinarily, you could argue that you could just use it in the reverse polarity state, by switching the contacts ...

Hi brucep,

Could you post your data file created in PicoScope 6, so that we can see what you're referring to.

Re: will picoscope 9404-05 interface with picoscope6 software for data acquisition?

Hi fareedasad, Unfortunately, the PicoScope 9405 and the other 9000 series PicoScopes are all a different type of oscilloscope to the other models that we have in our range. These are not Real-Time oscilloscopes (or not just real-time oscilloscopes in the case of the 9404-5 that you have), they util...

Re: data collection/save rate

Hi weschang, That depends upon quantifying what you mean by "slightly". The noise levels even on any 2 same model Scopes can be slightly different, but still within spec, (especially where they are from 2 different batches) because the characteristics of components will vary slightly (but within tol...

Re: How to connect LVDTs to ADC24

Hi MMA-PICO, LVDTs can be Bipolar (if that's what you mean by differential) because the displacement can be in either direction, or they could be Unipolar. However, the connection is Single Ended (so you only use one Single Ended input for it, instead of using 2 Single Ended inputs to make one Diffe...

Re: Bursts of noise with 4444/441/PicoLog6

Hi Paul, It's quite likely that you're not seeing this in PicoScope 6, because the anomaly occurs after a long time period (approximately19 hours according to your PicoLog 6 data plot) while PicoScope 6 can only capture data for an absolute maximum of just under 14 hours, when using the slowest samp...
