USB current?

Post by janaf » Thu Mar 17, 2011 8:54 am

Hi,

How much current does a PicoScope 3204A need from the USB port with NO external power supply connected to the 3204A, ie all powered via USB?

Thanks

HI,

The 3204A and the other 3xxxA/B scopes are USB powered and will use up to 500mA depending on what you are doing but it should not exceed this.

Kind regards
