Hi

The amount of data you can collect is only limited by your disk space. The maximum size of a data file is 1 million samples, but additional files will be created automatically.

You can use the scope's trigger in PicoLog, so you could start recording once a threshold has been exceeded. However, it wouldn't stop when that threshold is crossed again.

Hello,

I tried some examples ... but did not find the feature.
On the bottom I can start recording ... I also have the settings when it should start.
But when it starts ... i cant see where it saved on the harddisk ... I can save it manual ... but I think only 1000 Waveforms??

I want save a whole day long.

thanks

Hi Hannes

Which software are you using? For long-term logging, you need to use PicoLog. This should be on your CD or you can download the latest version from http://www.picotech.com/download.html

Hello,

I tried PicoScope 6.
Now I installed PicoLog and have almost. But there is one part:
I can set the Alarm ... but how can I configure that recording starts itself?

With my tests I have always klick manuel on the button ... how can I set that it should start when the Voltage is unter -1,5 V?
Can I use this software for free, when I bought a Pic 4424?

Thanks for your help!

To use the trigger function, you need to select "fast block mode" in your settings. This should then enable the trigger options.

PicoLog and PicoScope are free and can be installed as many times as you wish.

I'm afraid the 4000 series scopes are not compatible with PicoLog.

I thought you were using 3000 for logging.

You're right, it is. That is a mistake on the website and I will get it changed. If you bought the 4000 from us and it is not suitable for your application, please email support@picotech.com and we can arrange a refund.

Hi

With the 3424 and PicoLog, you can record data to the hard disk. The amount of data is only limited by disk space.

Hi and thank you for your post.

There are no current plans to have the 4000 series in the data logging software, however if you use PicoScope 6 you have the waveform buffers, fairly long time bases and now the time stamp on every waveform buffer. Also if you are clued up on programming you can write your own software to get it do this, we provide simple example in a number of languages and a technical reference manual with a list of all the function calls.

Kind regards
