RunBlock without Trigger => Pico Lockup

Post by brent99 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 8:07 pm

When the pico is collecting data via ps5000RunBlock() and the trigger is removed, any other calls to the pico never return and the pico locks up. The only way to recover short of a trigger being provided is to do a hard reset via power.

Is there a more graceful way to reset the pico should the trigger signal be lost and never return so that RunBlock exits?

Hi brent99,

Which version of the PicoScope 5000 SDK are you using? Are you running on a Windows or Linux platform?

You can try setting a value for the autoTrigger_ms parameter when you set the trigger so that trigger event automatically occurs if the trigger condition has not been met after a certain time.

Best wishes,
