ADC-200/20 External Horizontal Drive

Postby ALMARC » Mon Dec 20, 2004 10:58 pm

I am trying to use the ADC200/20 with PicoScope 5.11.6 just as I would use a conventional oscilloscope. I need to set the PicoScope for external horizontal drive with a vertical sensitivity of 1V/CM. How can this be done? My application is to use the Dual Sweep method of FM receiver alignment using a Sound Technology ST1000A FM alignment generator. I need a 60Hz sinewave to control the horizontal drive of the Pico so I can create an envelope wave form on the display. Any suggestions would be marvelous. Happy Holidays to all.

Thank you for your post.

I am not sure what you mean by "external horizontal drive". Could you explain this a bit more?

Best Regards

I think the poster means he wants to use the PicoScope in X-Y mode. This is a mode most analog scopes have, where the A channel moves the "beam" up and down and the B channel moves it left to right.

You can create an "XY Scope View" in the PicoScope software and all should be well :D The PicoScope online help explains how to do it.
