Setting the Time_Interval

Postby apples1927 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 2:36 pm

I have recently taken over a piece of VB vode which uses a picoscope in block mode to measure an impact - deceleration and velocity. The time interval of data capture of the the impact is currently over 1millisecond. I want to increase this to be 2 milliseconds but am having difficulty where it is possible to set these parameters, whether in the pico module (VB code) or elsewhere. I see time_base in the GetTimebase API, but not defined clearly anywhere else. Grateful for any help.

In general the timebase would be set by the call to RunBlock and will be detailed in the documentation that accompanies the sdk.

If you goto our website at


select your PicoScope product at Step 1 and the SDK at Step 2 it will include a programmers manual and/or user guide which will include the relevant details.
