PicoScope 3206 Timeout?

Post by rbordas » Wed Feb 18, 2009 2:26 pm

Hello Everybody,

I have a problem in LabView, using PicoScope 3206: I am using external triggering, but sometimes there is no signal at all, so PicoScope is just waiting for a trigger signal. That should not happen. I need here a timeout: if there is no trigger event for N seconds than it should stop. Please tell me how could I solve this problem.
Thank you for your help.

Best regards,
Robert

Hi

The trigger function is defined as

short ps3000_set_trigger (
short handle,
short source,
short threshold,
short direction,
short delay,
short auto_trigger_ms )

The value of auto_trigger_ms specifies the trigger time-out.
