How can I save measurements data?

Post by pkravt » Thu Jan 26, 2012 7:58 am

Hi,

Thanks for the nice product.
I need to save measurements made on the signal after every trigger.
For instance, measure maximum amplitude on every signal and save the history
of these amplitudes.
Can I do it with the current software version?
If no, is it possible to implement this feature?
In this case the scope can be used as amplitude spectra analyzer, for instance.

Thanks.

You can set up alarms which can perform a number of functions, for example you can trigger Picoscope to write the data to a file when the capture is complete.

Just go to Tools->Alarms in the Picoscope6 menu and take a look.

Yes,
but I want to save only measurements, i.e. maximum amplitude of the signal.
With current Alarms I can save only waveform itself, which takes much longer,
and also requires additional processing afterwards.
The measurement of the amplitude is only displayed in the table under the signal,
but I can't save the history of these amplitudes.

Thanks for the answer,
Peter.

Currently we do not provide a mechanism to save the measurement data, however I will forward your request to the development team for consideration in a future release.

At the moment I can only advise that you keep checking the release notes issued with each version.

Has there been any progress on being able to save measurements since January posts?
This is important to me too

This function is also very important for me. Any news?

Sorry nothing at present although we are currently improving the measurements. I will notify the team of the continued request for this feature from many sources.

Hello, Has there been any progress in this area? It will save lots of post processing time :)

Nothing at present although discussions are ongoing as part of a review measurements and maths channels, with the possibility of some measurements being migrated into maths channels which can be plotted and therefore exported.

I'm interested in exporting measurements as well.

Plotting measurements as part of the maths channel sounds like a great feature. Primarily I'm measuring pulse-widths at this point in time.

Measurements can be exported via the command line interface.

With Picoscope6 running, and displaying a measurement, open a command prompt window and then type

Code: Select all

picoscope.com /a Measurements.CSV?
it will push a comma separated measurement list to the console. This could be piped to a file or read by an external application.

I have tried the suggestion above, but I just get the following:

C:\Users\e>picoscope.com /a Measurements.CSV?
0ms: Measurements.CSV?
NONE

ie no data is output to the console, also it doesn't create a file called 'Measurements.CSV'
What am I doing wrong?

Im using PicoScope 6 software version: 6.10.18.1052
Model: PicoScope 3206B
on windows 7 64 bit
Picoscope is running, I have tried it both running continuously without a trigger, and also after triggering and capturing data
