Range and Trigger Autosetting function in MATLAB

Postby marcoazpurua » Fri Jun 26, 2015 2:18 pm

I was wondering if there was a MATLAB implementation of a function for autosetting the range and the trigger level of picoscopes 5000 series. This would be very useful for us, MATLAB users, because all examples and information provided by the user guide (unless I have skipped something…) assume the user knows beforehand the right setting of those parameters.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi marcoazpurua,

If your signal is repetitive, you can use the overflow parameter when retrieving data values in order to see if there has been a vertical overflow.

You would then have to try different voltage ranges until a vertical overflow is no longer indicated.

The other option is to use one of the higher voltage ranges.

Yes, that's what i thought.

I implemented it and worked just fine.

Thanks.
