Running multiple 3200- or ADC-200 Series Scopes in PARALLEL

Postby alehander » Tue Jan 18, 2005 6:35 pm

Hello, all. I need to track, trigger on and log complex analog waveforms at 25MHz+ for long time spans (hours). Looks like the 3200- or ADC-200 series scopes will do the trick, aside from the 2-channel limitation. I need 4 channels minimum. Is there a possibility of running multiple 3200- or ADC-200 series scopes in parallel? If so, what sorts of limitations should I expect (reduced sampling/logging bandwidth?). Thanks for the help,

Thank you for your post.

Generally it is not recommended to use multiple oscilloscopes at a time. The Picoscope software will not support the use of more than one unit.

If you wish to use multiple units with Picolog then you will be limited to Real Time Continuous mode which has a maximum sampling rate of one per ms. There would be no limitations to bandwidth.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
