Multiple Picos?

Postby roastmeat » Tue Nov 27, 2012 3:32 am

Hi, I have the 2205 and need to use up to 4 picoscopes on one computer.

I need to know which scope is which as well (like able to determine by serial number?)

Does the API allow this?

Thanks

Yes, there is a function call ps2000_get_unit_info which will allow you to do this. You will then need to use this information as the handle assigned to each unit could be different on each boot cycle.

Full details are in the SDK which you can download from http://www.picotech.com/software.html

Ok thank you.

But I was wondering if there was a renaming system, or a device manager program that can tell you what device is connected and their serial numbers (and possibly change that).

I am not sure what you are trying to do :?

As I mentioned the use of ps2000_get_unit_info will allow you to group the device handles, that windows assigns, to the scope's serial number. The place to do this is in your application, performing it in a standalone application is not necessary. If you run PicoScope 6 with multiple devices connected you can see this process in action with the Connect Device dialog that pops up.
