Thanks for early responses. I have some more to clarify.
The above is a transient waveform i have obtained using my high voltage probe and Picosciope 3206A. Only at lower sampling rates (above picture is at less as 5MS and 340v trigger) i can have 'burst's even as can be seen. But as i increase the sampling rate only one transient is shown by capture. Like below (which is taken at 200MS and 400v trigger value ),
All i can understand is, as increment of sample rate the software only captures the trigger exceeding transient and records it only, without wasting memory to save larger bursts that do not exceed transient. Isn't it ? is there any tactical way to save those bursts also keeping the high sampling rate ?
2. When i use the alarm feature and save the waveforms to my computer harddisk, setting an alarm and saving buffer options, what is the trigger delay it uses ? As per to PicoScope 3000 series data sheet,
triger re-arm time < 2 μS on fastest timebase
what is the meaning of that ? Or the system re-capture next pulse (once exceeds the trigger value set) after what ever the time taken for saving early capture ?
3. This prolem once i asked,
The properties plane completely irrelevant for my settings ? (Marked as 2)
and the answer given not clear to me,
The properties pane will always show exactly how the scope has been set. The software will make an appropriate choice based upon the requested number of samples and the specified collection time across the screen.
So which i should trust ? The value i set or value in the properties pane ?
Sorry for lengthy questions, but please help me to figure out ! Thanks.
