5244D with LabVIEW - Updated SDK needed?

Post by goetz.becker » Tue Jul 31, 2018 2:32 pm

Hi all,
I am currently evaluating the new 5244D.
PicoScope works and shows this as info:

Code: Select all

PicoScope® 6 - PC-Oszilloskop-Software Version: 6.13.6.3775
Copyright © 1995-2018, Pico Technology Ltd.
Modell: PicoScope 5244D
Seriennummer: FZ996/0058
USB-Version: 3,0
Kalibrierungsdatum: Mittwoch, 13. Juni 2018
Hardwareversion: 1
Treiberversion: 2.1.0.570
Firmwareversion: 1.7.15.0 / 1.2.34.0
I have the PicoSDK_32_10.6.12.41.exe and PicoSDK_64_10.6.12.41.exe installed together with the newest version of picosdk-ni-labview-examples from github.
I tried several ways of ps5000aOpenUnit but always get a PicoStatus PICO_NOT_FOUND.
Is there a newer version of the SDK needed for this device?

Thanks,
Götz

If you are using a 32 bit version of LabVIEW you can copy ps5000a.dll and picoIpp.dll from

C:\Program Files (x86)\Pico Technology\PicoScope6

and copy these to

C:\Program Files (x86)\Pico Technology\SDK\lib

and you should be able to find and open the device.

If you have 64 bit LabVIEW then please contact support@picotech.com as we haven't yet released the SDK installer to support these devices.

Thanks for the quick reply. It now works with this little hack.

No problem, good to hear it is working.

A new SDK will be available shortly.

Hello,

same problem, just the proposed solution (file copying) didn't work for me.

I just purchased PICOSCOPE 5242D, LabView 2018 (x 32), PicoSDK (x 32), tried samples 5000a and 5000 as well with no success. Always receive "PICO NOT FOUND" error 5003.

Please, help.

Regards,
Andrius Sakalauskas

Just got the newer SDK(-64) and it seems to work for me. But
PicoScope5000aSettings.vi must be modified for 5242D MSO, don’t have external power source. Remove AND before case for MSO.
