Triggering data streaming 5444B

Postby EdwardLaw » Tue Feb 14, 2017 11:14 am

Hi,

I am trying to do triggered streaming on the Picoscope 5444B using the SDK (PS5000AStreamingConsole.sln). However I keep getting status error code 290 corresponding to 'USB power not sufficient' however I am plugged into DC mains. This means that the trigger never gets set up and thus the streaming starts immediately.

I would ideally like to start AND stop capture on channel A by triggering on channel B, is this possible?

Any comments would be greatly recieved.

Thanks.

Can you try stepping through the code starting at the OpenUnit call, checking all the status return codes for the API calls, and let us know what they are.

Do you mean the laptop is plugged to mains, or the 5444B ?

The 5444B is plugged into DC power supply.

Cheers.
