Trigger on EXT port

Post by haziqsahaja » Thu Jul 18, 2019 12:25 pm

Hi, i have problem on setting trigger using EXT port. im using picoscope 3000 and 5000 series. the reason is i want to trigger channel A using EXT port because want to maintain the sampling rate. if im using the current channel for example CHannel A and B and trigger the Channel B from A, the sampling rate is decreased. so thats why im trying to use EXT port. but the signal doesnt capture and triggered. can someone help me to solve this problem.

Thanks.

Hi haziqsahaja,

Could you tell us exactly which model 3000 and 5000 PicoScopes you have, and could you post your psdata file so that we can see how you have thing set up.

The sample rate of the channels shouldn't normally be affected by what channel you trigger from. If you could also explain in more detail what you are trying to achieve, we will be able to help you.

Regards,
