Conversion to CSV / TXT with Linux

Postby brena4 » Wed May 14, 2014 8:26 pm

When saving a psdata file to CSV format the maximum number of samples output to the file seems to be limited to 1048579 (minus 3 for header lines, so 1048576).

Is there a particular reason why this would be the case ?

My sample rate was at 500.1 us.

Hi brena4,

The limit has been set as per PicoScope 6 for Windows due to a limitation of the number of rows that MS Excel can handle.

You can export the data to MATLAB .mat v4 format - the format is available for you to then convert the data:


The Development team have been made aware of requests for exporting more data.
