data acquisition using ADC-200

Postby Chung » Sun Mar 25, 2007 2:27 pm

currently i'm using PicoScope. can i know whether this application can do as i want to?i want to record the DC voltage signal every 5 second if it is above threshold level and record it every 1 second if it is below threshold level?

Hi and thank you for your post.

Unfortunately you cannot do this in PicoScope or PicoLog. Why don't you just record it every one second regardless. Using PicoLog, you can save for long periods of time and are only limited by your hard disk space. You can save, on one file, up to 1 million samples, if you require more samples you can get it continue recording to a new file.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Thanks. i will consider that.

By the way, i still have 2 more questions.

1. Do GeniDAQ support this device (ADC-200)? because previously i wrote an application using GeniDAQ and record data using Advantech PCL-818L data acquisition card.but due to some technical problem, i decide to use ADC-200 to record data.it makes my task easier if this device can be supported by GeniDAQ because i no need to rewrite the application using another programming language.If can support, how to setup it?

2. using the example (ADC200 for VB) provided by Pico, i want to add-on another function which can show real time graph. I'm a degree student. can someone provide the source code that can work in the example i mentioned above?

Thanks

Hi, we have not used GeniDaq before however if you could use dll in the standard way then it should be no problem to be able to write software in this language.

As much as we would like to keep our customers happy, we do not have the resources to assist in the programming. However what I can say if you have a look at the manual for the ADC200 it contains a description of what all the functions do, along with the programming example it gives you a good start.

Hope this helps.
Kind regards
