Aux trigger problems for PS6000SetSimpleTrigger

Post by Picoscope0815 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 10:02 am

Hi all,

I noticed some irregularities using the with AUX triggering.
I used a block form trigger Signal with approx. 2.5V on the Picoscope 6404C, Labview 2013 64bit.

-by triggering on channel B everything works fine! It can be triggered on the falling and on the rising edge without a problem.

-by using the AUX input channel, triggering works somethings. That means if the falling edge is chosen, 3 out of 4 times it already triggers on the rising signal. It doesn't matter if the tigger threshold is on 32500 adc (~1V) or 16000 or 8000.

-with the same hardware configeration using the Picoscope 6 software the aux trigger works fine!

How can that be? Is there maybe an error in the ps6000setsimpletrigger.dll? Someone has similar experience or advice?

Thanks alot for your help!
