Timebase in Picoscope 4424

Postby jg001 » Tue Jun 07, 2011 6:29 pm

I have a picoscope 4424. I see that it has 80MSPS capability. But when I try to program it using LabVIEW, the smallest valid timebase I get is 2, which reduces the scope's capability to 20MSPS. Every time I try to set the timebase to something like 1 or 0, I get an "invalid timebase" error. I have used the example RapidBlock code and I've even set the "four channel device" setting OFF. But still I can't get the 80MSPS rate. Why?

Channels are enabled by default, so you need to explicitly turn them off.

In the settings.vi, make sure the four channel device is enabled, and Channel B, Channel C & Channel D settings are not enabled.

The timebase value in the ExampleBlock.vi can then be set to 0.
