triggering in block mode

Post by donj » Thu Dec 02, 2010 9:18 pm


I have a PicoScope 4224.

I want record 10 events in 10 blocks. The data is in channel 1 and the trigger event goes to channel2.

If I setup the required trigger conditions for channel 2 and set up 10 memory segments and start the scope with ps4000RunBlock, will this give me the required results.

It is not clear to me from reading the manual if each block is triggered and if the data from successive triggers goes into consecutive blocks.

Thank you

Don James

Hi Don

This is under user control, but will depend upon a few factors...

How many samples are in each block?

How much time does each block take

What is the maximum time between trigger events?
