Continuoous streaming mode?

Post by derek_gerlach » Sat Apr 18, 2009 10:06 pm

It says here
http://www.picotech.com/education/oscil ... -mode.html
that the PS4000 series supports continuous streaming mode.
I have a PS4424 running 6.2.2.12 on Win XP.
Is there a way to activate streaming mode that doesn't involve programming the scope via the API?
Thanks, Derek

Hi

Streaming mode is used for the longer timebases in PicoScope 6. To set the timebase at which it switches from block to streaming mode, go to Tools -> preferences -> sampling -> slow sampling transition.

The longest timebase is approximately 30 minutes. Therefore, this is the longest unbroken stream of data you can collect with PicoScope 6.

Using the API, you can stream data indefintitly.
