PreTrigger conditions

Postby Ham » Thu Oct 26, 2006 2:05 pm

Hi there,
I have a question about the pre-triggering possibilities of your devices.
We would like to observe our machine over months (voltages from 5 to 30 Volt) and then when the failures appears, it should be possible to "watch back" for at least 20min (at least 1kS). Is this possible with your devices without generating huge log files ??
Is it also possible to have a oscilloscope or logger with 4 channels and a external trigger ??
Can be set, for each channel, an own trigger condition ??
Thank you :D

Thank you for your post.

The PicoLog software will allow you to sample on trigger. This will allow you to save only what you are looking for.

To acquire with a different trigger on each channel, you will have to wait for the next version of PicoScope. Users of automotive scopes can see this already in PicoScope 6.0(beta).
