Hi

It is not currently available in PicoScope 6. However, it is currently being worked on and will be included in a future release of the software.

Hi,

I have just bought a Picoscope 5000 series. I need to do x-y measurements with it and I have just noticed, that the Picoscope 6 software apparently won't let me to do so.

Is there another software that allows me to do x-y measurements with my picoscope?
When will this functionality be available in Picoscope6?

Hi

PicoScope 6 does now include x-y mode. Right click on the trace and select "x-axis". You can then select which channel you wish to use as the x-axis.

Hi Robin,

thanks for the quick reply. It works great!

BTW:
It would be cool, if one could use e.g. the AuxIO input in xy mode to blank out the scope beam (switch from draw to no-draw=invisible). This would make it possibe to use Picoscope as a storage screen for older test equipment like microwave spectrum analyzers, where it is necessary to blank out the beam return.

Is this already possible or feasible?

Thanks, Tom

XY-Mode missing in Picoscope 6 with Picoscope 3204 hardware

Postby sosmike » Fri May 15, 2009 2:19 pm

XY-Mode was a feature in Picoscope 5, afaik. I think it's difficult to understand why it is not present in Picoscope 6.
I have just tried on a Picoscope 6 (latest version download), to get the xy-mode. In trial mode xy-mode works perfect, easy to find in the menu. When I use the same PS-6 with a 3204 the menu point for xy is greyed out.
How can I get xy with this 3204?
