Labview 8.5 drivers and values not correct?

Postby GJR » Tue May 13, 2008 11:06 pm

We are running Labview 8.5 and runstream.vi and a picoscope 3424. When we input a DC voltage we don't get the correct reading in the labview code but do get the correct one in the picoscope software.

What we set 1.04 V, 2.01 V, 3.07 V
What we read 1.75 V, 3.32 V 5.06 V

Any Ideas what is going on would really help!

The runstream.vi returns the values from the scope in its raw format. Therefore how are you converting the ADC counts to voltage? The proper way would be the following formula:
(raw * (input_ranges[ch])) / (32766)
Therefore if for example the raw output was 16383 and you had the channel setup on ±10V's, the V reading would be 5.00V's.
