Offset null with picoscope 6

Postby Guest » Wed Apr 02, 2008 5:07 pm

I use a PicoScope 3206. With PicoScope 5, I could adjust out the small amount of input offset on each channel by shorting the inputs and going to
Settings / Offset Null. I can't seem to find a similar function on PicoScope 6. Where do I look for this feature?

Offset Null with PicoScope 6

Thanks for the reply. I understand a true offset null is not yet implemented in Pico 6. I hope this feature will be available soon, as the small offset is a nuisance. With a conventional analog scope, this is the first thing I do ... make zero read zero.

Thanks again, and congratulations on the fine products. I really enjoy my 3206 and I do like the new software.

Thanks for the fine feedback. As we are rewriting the PicoScope 5 program (PicoScope 6) some features haven't quite made it into the program. Don't sweat however, as all the great features of PicoScope 5 will make their way into PicoScope 6 as time/resources allow and then be improved on. That's one of the great benefits of free software updates. Glad to hear that you are enjoying your PS3206 and I hope that you continue to do so!
