Square wave problem

Postby Fivetide » Mon Jul 01, 2013 11:22 am

Hi I bought my new probes got Picosco today and now calibrating them , I have a the 2205 and have got a good square wave out of the box , only thing is its dancing backwards and forwards on the horizontal to the left hand side, is this normal , is there anything I can do to stop this ?

Try setting trigger type from "None" to "Auto" at the bottom left of the screen, and ensure that the yellow diamond is located within the vertical range of the square wave.

Sweet work perfectly many thanks for that, there’s only one other thing , at the peak I get what looks like interference ?

Is there anything I can do about this , I have set the BitRate to 10.
