Detecting which series Picoscope attached

Post by tonyb » Thu Nov 11, 2010 2:13 am

Can anyone suggest how to determine which series Picoscope is attached ?

I may have a Series 3000 or a Series 4000 attached and I want my software to be able to determine what driver to use.

The Picoscope software works this way. Can anyone explain how it does it ? How does it determine which driver to use ?Does it simply try each driver until it connects OK

Regards,
Tony

Hi you would have to open both units using the open unit function if it returns a true value then you know this particular unit is connected.

Hope this helps.
