Picoscope6 Meters?

Postby Concept360 » Wed Apr 13, 2011 11:00 am

Hi Pico,
I have used a Picoscope for many years and have used the multi window displays, i.e. I can view a signal and also display the voltage in another window - or when it suits simply use the scope as a voltmeter.
I find this useful for demonstating say the output from a voltage regulator as a Digital voltage and being able to view any noise or ripple at the same time.
I have recently purchased the handheld 2104 and the Picoscope6 software.
I think I am missing something? as I cannot open a window to simply display a meter - such as Voltage, freqency etc. etc.
I have also check the disc and packaging and cannot find a basic user manual that explains how to do this??
Can some please 'Tell me how"

Simon Lawrence.

Hi Simon,

We do not have meters as the Picoscope 5 had, however we have measurements where you can increase the font size by going into Measurements ->Grid Font Size.

Kind regards

Hi. I see this is an old post but I have the same problem ten years on. Mostly I use the handheld 2104 to look at serial signals from microprocessors. Very handy. Other times just as a big screen voltmeter. Well I would if it had the functionality of #5.
Can I run #6 & #5 together? Can I get the latest #5 that still has this capability? Regards, Phil Bostock.

Hi Phil,

This is something under consideration as the Measurements feature is being worked on as part of work towards the next major release.

You can install PicoScope 5 and PicoScope 6 on the same PC but only one application can control the device at a time. The PicoScope 5 software is available for some of our discontinued products on our Downloads page.

In PicoScope 6, you can add Measurements and change the size of the font.
