Timebase 0

Post by IonutGorgos » Fri Jun 17, 2016 9:39 pm

Hi,

Currently I'm writing a Python script using Pico-Python wrapper, but the problem is I can't set the sample interval = 200 ps ( 5GS/s ). I only enabled the channel A , so it should be working. (in Picosoftware is working)

Same problem when I try to set the sample interval = 400 ps ( timebase = 1) with the channel A enabled, or the channels A and C enabled.

In both cases the error is: "PICO_INVALID_TIMEBASE", "The timebase is not supported or is invalid."

I have PicoScope 6404D.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Martyn

Make sure you specifically disable all the channels you do not wish to use. The driver will have them enabled by default.

Can you post your code, then we can take a look at the use of the ps6000SetChannel API call, it will need to be called four times.

Hi,

I find the problem. My bad. I was calling setSampleInterval() method ( ._lowLevelGetTimebase() ) before the setChannel method. Now it is working.


Thanks,
Martyn
