feature request ventilator off

Postby tommyjunge » Wed Jan 02, 2013 9:56 am


my Picoscope5203 has a terribly loud ventilator.

Would it be possible to switch the ventilator off while the instrument is not measuring but the software is still running?
At the moment, I always shut down the software to shut down the ventilator. But restarting it takes quite some time. Just pressing the measure button would be a lot quicker.

Thanks for considering,

It is not possible to change the software to stop the fan as it is there to stop the unit from overheating.

Please e-mail support@picotech.com with your batch/serial number.
