Triggering a PicoScope Channel Recording using the API

Postby PeterP » Fri Oct 27, 2017 6:47 am

Dear community,
Dear pico Technology,

I am successfully accessing my PicoScope of the 6000 series (6402D) via the python package pico-python. Using the internal function generator I am able to trigger an excitation signal via a software trigger, ref.
https://www.picotech.com/support/topic16471.html (Triggering a PicoScope Signal Generator using the API).
Additionaliy to the AWG I at the same time want to start acquisition on a channel, e.g. channel A. I read through the programmer's manual though were unable to identify an approach that allows me to use a software trigger to start the acqusition. Just to be clear, I am looking for a programatic way that equals the manual pressing of the "single" button on classic oscilloscopes and that happens in sync to the AWG excitation.

Can you please assist? Currently I am on windows (ps6000.dll, version 1.6.0.11, 11.07.2017), though this functionality would be also very much be desired for Linux.

Thank you very much!!
Peter

Hi Peter,

I've seen your posts on the pico-python project about the use of the scope trigger to activate the signal generator and will respond via your support ticket.
