I have a few questions about the PicoScope 5000 series oscilloscope.
A. What is the max input voltage? Is it 5V? How can one measure HV signals? Is there any way to extend that to ~20kV RMS? Does this scope support x1000 probes?
B. Can you use this scope as a limited voltmeter, taking thousands of measurements per second??
C. 32MS/s and 128MS/s, does that mean you can take that many samples a second, for an unlimited amount of time and store all this data on your computer? If you have a 750GB hard drive, you can datalog for like a month at that sample rate then? Or is 128MS a sample record limit, meaning you can only take 128MS at once, whatever the chosen time interval?
D. Where can I download the manual and demo software for this scope?
E. What is the screen refresh rate? Linked to your monitor refresh rate? So if I have a 24" CRT maxed out at 250Hz, the software will supply 250 different images every second?
F. Can you use a multi-monitor setup and have a full screen scope screen on one monitor, another one for the controls and yet another one for something else, provided there are at least 3 video cards [2 PCI and one AGP/PCI-E] in your system?
G. When this scope is in action, what is the approximate CPU occupancy on an E6600 Core Duo based PC with 1GB RAM?
That's about it for now, I'll ask more questions when I think of them...
Thanks for the answers.
