PicoScope 3406B Labview 2013

Post by nwhaynes » Fri Nov 17, 2017 7:27 pm

I am working on a project with the picoscope 3406b but all the labview examples I am seeing out on github seem to be for a newer version of labview than what we are using. Is there anyway to get some examples for this unit that will work with LabView 2013 sp1?

Please email support@picotech.com and one of the team will be able to assist. Let them know which example you are looking at, and if you need 32 bit ir 64 bit.

I can not get my 3406b to work with either the PicoScope3000 or PicoScope3000a lab view examples. I have put ps3000.dll, ps3000.lib, ps3000a.dll, ps3000alib, ps3000aWrap.dll, ps3000aWrap.lib, ps3000Wrap.dll, and ps3000Wrap.lib in the LabVIEW 2013 resource folder. I put lab view applications PicoScope3000, PicoScope3000a, PicoscopeExampleBlock, and PicoScope3000FastStreaming in the LabVIEW2013 examples folder.

When I try to run PicoScope3000a, I get a Error 5003 occurred at ps3000aOpenUnit when the Pico Status VI is called.

HELP!

For the 3406b you need to be using the ps3000a examples and library files, and you also need to use the correct LabVIEW files to match your LabVIEW environment (32 bit or 64 bit)

Install the library files using the 32 or 64 bit SDK installer from here

and get the ps3000a examples from our GitHub pages and also add the shared folder.
