I am trying to implement some advanced trigger on a Picoscope 5444B by using the corresponging functions ps5000aSetTriggerChannelConditions/Properties and Directions. However, I am struggeling with the last one. I am not sure about the appropriate constants that should represent the availabe threshold direction options. From the programmers guide I can extract the allowable values for the direction in which the signal must pass and I would assume that they are implemented by constants, i.e. PS5000A_ABOVE (=0), PS5000A_ABOVE_LOWER (=1), etc. but this is causing some error (ERROR 5013 in the SetTriggerChannelDirections function). Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks in advance,

Marius Rimmler

Hi Marius,

What is the condition on which you require the signal to be captured?

If you have a screenshot or example data file of a PicoScope 6 capture with the trigger setup that you require that might be helpful.

The error code 5013 indicates an invalid parameter.
