triguer dependant meassures?

Postby mmaicoll » Thu Jun 26, 2008 4:40 pm

Hello.
I want to use a ADC 212 for data-logging a preassure trace from an engine. the problem is:
I need to make a fast meassurement every time that I read a signal. e.i. I have and encoder that will give me some pulses, I need to make one reading every time that I have that pulse, but I need all the information in one spreadsheet. in this way I can relate the preassure for every crank angle (pulse from the encoder).
I've tried different triguering options from PicoLog, but all the options are for start sampling in a time dependant way, I haven't found a way of samppling everty time that I meet the triguering value.

how can I do this?
with which program or tool am I more likely to succeed?
maybe is it possible to do this via Excell or Visual Basic?

Thans a lot

Hello mmaicoll,

You could use PicoLog (http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/plw044.pdf) in Fast block mode or, PicoScope 5 (http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/psw044.pdf) in 'save on trigger' mode.
