PicoLog1216 Mode

Postby KEggemeyer » Wed Sep 08, 2010 6:57 pm

I am using the PicoLog1216 to collect data over a long period. I am collecting 100 samples from three channels per second to update a display. I am able to do this in "single" capture mode, but would like to switch to "streaming". When I do switch, regardless of the settings in "SetInterval", the data does not come back correctly. Specifically, the first value in the return array might be from channel 1, 2 or 3. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Kevin

A good place to start when writing your own code is with the examples in our SDK's.

An example for the PicoLog 1216 is available on our download site

http://www.picotech.com/software.html

This includes a 'streaming' mode example, which shows how to set up the scope to use this mode.

Hope this helps,

Chris

The only sample included with the SDK was an MS-Excel sample for "single mode". Where might I find more examples?

Hi Kevin

Our new SDKs were released on 3rd September, and include PL1000sdk r10.1.0.3, which covers the PicoLog 1012 & 1216.

This sdk includes a C code console application example, which has a 'streaming' mode section.

Chris.

Does the mode really matter? That is, if the software works as intended in the "wrong" mode, why fix it, right? I'm calling the run command in "single" mode every second to collect 3 x 100 values and it is working fine.
