Signal Generator

Post by rebk » Fri Dec 04, 2015 7:58 am

Hi All,
I am using PicoScope 5244A. When push Signal Generator button and Turn on the signal, the default waveform does not change at all. I tried all options as different type of waveforms and different frequency and voltage but they change only in the Picoscope software and nothing changes at default waveform.
Do I miss anything to use Signal Generator?
I tried the Demo version, It seems fine but Signal generator doesn't work when I am working with real device (When picoscope is connected).

Any idea?

Thank you

Martyn

Have you connected a BNC cable between the SigGen/AWG output and the input Channel A ?

Yes. I did. But there is no output waveform.
Any idea?

Can you post a psdata file, then we can then look at your settings, and a picture of your setup, so we can replicate things here.

To keep the size down just save the current waveform, not all buffers.

Setup picture.
It should be a Square waveform with 1 KHz f.

Can you also post a picture showing the cable connections.

And then try switching the input to using channel B.

It is working now. I just update my windows and reinstall the Picoscope 6 software.
Thanks for support.
