how to open 3 pico oscilloscope at the same time in Labview?

Post by wenfeizhang » Mon Dec 15, 2014 9:52 pm

Dear All,

I am new to the pico&labview. I am trying to use 3 picoscope ( 5442B series) to collect all 12 channels data at the same time. Is it possible? I searched on the forum, it is said I need 3 handle values to let the computer know each devices. however, how can I achieve that in Labview? I have the program that can collect 1 picoscope data( 4 channels ), and it worked well. How can I adjust it to open 3 picoscopes? My program is attached.

Thank you all.

Hi,

This should be possible. If you copy and paste the PicoScope5000aOpen.vi each VI would give a unique handle value which can be used to control each scope. What you could do is create a 'For Loop' and keep the values in an array and then put all the VIs to control the device also in for loops.

If you have any questions please let me know.
