PS2205: When is the trigger disabled?

Post by bmckenney » Fri Apr 03, 2009 8:41 pm

I am using a PS2205 with an external trigger. As I understand it, the
trigger (configured using ps2000_set_trigger()) is enabled by the call to

What I would like to know is: When is the trigger disabled?

1) After it fires once?
2) By ps2000_get_values()?
3) By ps2000_stop()?
4) [Other?]

I am seeing symptoms consistent with a spurious trigger signal. I don't
suspect the Picoscope (rather our circuitry), but I would like to detect
(or prevent) its effects, and my strategy rather relies on how long the
trigger is enabled in the Picoscope.

If I understand your question right the answer is:
The trigger is disabled once the device has triggered or you call stop.
It is reenabled next time you call run.
