Picolog 1012 -need to sample faster than 1ks/s

Postby reagle » Fri Feb 01, 2013 8:38 pm

New user of PicoLog 1012 here. I was hoping to sample the channels at higher than 1ks rate, but it appears I can not do that using PicoLog software. Is writing my own the only way around that ? And what streaming rate can be achieved continuously on this device using all 8 channels?
Thanks!

Please check the specification here http://www.picotech.com/multi-channel-daq.html

Maximum continuous streaming rate with your own software would be 100ks/s shared between the active channels.

Is there any ready to use software to do that you are aware of? It's a bit odd having to write your own after buying the logger

You may wish to look at our PicoScope 6 software which will work at faster rates with the device, otherwise writing your own software is the other option.

Thanks Martyn, when I tried running PicoScope it told me no suitable device was found. Should it work with the 1012?

Yes it should do although you will need to make sure that PicoLog wasn't already connected to the device.
