How can I force all channels to report e.g. 0.1V instead of 100mV?

How can I force all channels to report e.g. 0.1V instead of 100mV?

Post by Stromlo » Mon Jan 07, 2019 9:51 pm

I am measuring a simple circuit, and for some channels I am monitoring I only want to know if it is 3V or 0V. Having the 'Channels & Axes' display 211.23uV is distracting...

I have attached an image of what I mean. It would be nice if it would show 0.00V instead of 300.22uV.

PicoLog 6.1.7 on PicoLog 1216.

(I received the 1216 today - love the software! Best interface I've used so far amongst different manufacturers, and I was blown away by the included documentation quality.)

If you use scaling when setting up the channel and select "Equation" it is possible to achieve what you need. The example below using

round( channel / 10 ) /100 will give results of the form x.xxV

if you change this to

round( channel / 100) / 10 you will get x.x0V

Note the the unit has to be Custom Unit and V otherwise you will see mV appear.

Thank you Martyn, that did the trick. Though I expect your formula had a typo?

I used the following:

Code: Select all

round( input * 100 ) / 100
Works great. One inconsistency is that 0V does not show 0.00V. Could you submit this as a possible bug / feature request? That is not distracting at least.
