I need something like PicoLog 1216 but I have dilemma/question.
Namely, in my experiment I collect data from acquisition card every one second (it is X-ray experiment and data are one-dimensional array containing photon counts on different detector channel). Now I need something to monitor intensity variation from X-ray tube. With the combination of photo-diode (placed in the direct X-ray beam) and PicoLog 1216 I can monitor voltage variation from photo-diode and relate this to the intensity variation from X-ray tube.
I want to collect from 'PicoLog-photo-diode' voltage values also every one second.
On the other hand, what I need is as much as possible those values in one reading in order to obtain good statistics of intensity variation in this one second. In other words, during that one second 1216 should sample as much as it can voltage values and after this one second I should be able to drag voltage values from its memory (1216 has internal 8k-memory, right?) to PC memory. After that, 1216 clears its memory and starts to sample (and store in its memory) another set of voltage values for one second, and so one.
Can I do this with 1216? If yes, which functions (and arguments) are defined for that?
Thank you for the answer
