Battery Power

Post by BDR » Mon Sep 19, 2016 11:19 am

Good day,

I have noticed that there is a battery setting in the software. 6404D

Do you sell battery packs for this oscilloscope? If so, how long do they last for?

Hi BDR,

The Mains/Battery setting refers to if you are using a mains power supply or battery with a laptop - as shown in the User's Guide:
The settings are in captures per second. By default, the capture rate is set to Unlimited when your computer is running on Mains (line) power, for maximum performance. If other applications run too slowly on your PC whilst PicoScope is capturing, then reduce the capture rate limit. When your computer is running on Battery power, PicoScope imposes a performance limit to save the battery. You can increase this limit manually, but this will cause the battery power to drain very quickly.
The PicoScope 6000 Series should be used with the supplied external 12V power supply.

Hope this helps,
