Pico Scope 2206 simple programing in labview

Postby knwinn » Mon Apr 16, 2012 5:54 pm

I want to be able to use labview to turn on the pico scope, generator a sine wave, then record channels A and B and save that waveform to a excel file.

currently I have my code open the PicoScope, then I try to generator a sine wave. I get an error "Error 5012 occurred at ps2000aSetSigGenBuiltIn". Any suggestion on the error?

Does any one have an example code I could modify?

Hi Kevin,

Removing the '50' from the LabVIEW code gives the Pico Status code 12. Converting this to hexadecimal gives 'C' corresponding to 'PICO_INVALID_HANDLE' in the Programmer's Guide. It's worth checking to see what the value of handle is going into the function call.
