PicoScope 5444B as a DMM best practice

Postby adamk » Thu Jun 04, 2015 8:50 am

Hi all,

I need to use PicoScope 5444B for a simple voltage measurement in LabVIEW. I want measure the voltage in every 1ms, so 1 sample / 1ms in "real time" would be enough. I tried to use the block mode but the maximal output is ~10ms, with streaming mode is better, but I don't need so many samples, and the answer from driver coming in range 0,5ms-80ms randomly.

Could you please send me the best practice for this kind of measurement? I need just 1 sample in every 1 ms.

Hi adamk,

You should be able to use the streaming mode example.

What settings have you specified on the front panel for the sampling interval? Note that the driver does return the actual sampling interval used from the ps5000aRunStreaming function call.

Try specifying a sampling interval of 1000 microseconds.
