Ranges for 2205A

Post by TimOster » Wed Jan 21, 2015 4:00 pm

Hi,

In the example code for Block Mode I was sent (Thank you!), the range is stated as +-2V. The range is the run_block statement is 7 though. Isn't that 5V range?

"status = ps2000_set_channel(handle, 0, 1, 1, 7) 'handle, channel(A), enable(1), dc(1), voltage range(+/-2V)"

50mV = 1
100mV = 2
200mV = 3
500mV = 4
1V = 5
2V = 6
5V = 7
10V = 8
20V = 9

Thanks for clearing this up.

Tim

Hello Tim,

There is a missing range from the list that you have - the +/- 20mV range.

Section 6.23 (ps2000_set_channel) in the Programmer's Guide (https://www.picotech.com/download/manua ... .en-10.pdf) shows that the enumeration value for the +/-20mV range is 1, 2 for the +/-50mV range and so on. Therefore the enumeration value for the +/-5V range is 8.

Hope this helps,
Hitesh
