Hi, Is it possible to extract data and timestamps from a PSdata file for post processing.

Hi thank you for your post.

You can get the raw data but not the time stamp. Please have a look at the help file, PSW044.chm, located in C:\Program Files\Pico Technology\Pico Full and choose Technical Reference-> File and Clipboard formats.

Kind regards

Hi, I believe you may have been talking about PicoScope6, in that case, there are no plans to make the PicoScope 6 psdata file into an open format, but there will be a number of ways of exporting the raw and scaled data in future. This will make it very easy to get at the data in the files.

Kind regards

extraction of data

Could you please make the psdata format open, I don't mind if you change it, but making it open would allow end users to read the data from your files.

I note that there are no extraction tools included in picoScope 6.0.9 yet.

Hi,

You can export as text from PSW6 but this is limited to 64K samples - the reason for this is that 64K is the maximum that Excel can support. Use Edit - copy as text.

If you need more than 64K, then please bear with us. New export tools will be included soon, hopefully in a release at the end of June, if not then at the end of July.

In the mean time one option is to use PicoScope 5 (where the .psd format is published) or the software drivers to capture the data from your own code.

Regards
Alan

Will picoScope 5 work with a 5204 scope hardware?

Hi,

The PicoScope 5203/4 are supported in PicoScope 6, but not 5. I have discussed the data export option with the software team and we have moved the binary data export feature up in the priority list so it should be available around the end of June.
