Meter updates

Post by Mech » Fri Mar 21, 2008 5:57 pm

Hello. I'm using Picoscope 5.19 with my 212/3. The setup is scope on ch. A and meter on ch. B. It seems the meter will only update in Block Mode but this is reducing the scope scan to 4 seconds and I am wanting a timebase of 20 seconds. The scope will scan 20 seconds in Standard or Chart Recorder but then the meter will not update. Any ideas?

Hi Mech,

"When you use the oscilloscope in standard or chart recorder mode, with a timebase of less than 200 ms/div, meter readings are not updated."

Kind regards

Hello Ziko. Thanks for your reply. Take a look at these two files; Meter Updates 1 & 2. The meter updates at those timebases. It is above 200ms/div that the meter does not update. Any ideas?
Regards,
Mech.

Hi Mech you have it on 200us/division that so it will work on that time base.
