Trigger for each data point

Post by GregH » Mon Aug 08, 2011 4:59 am


I am looking to do some order (harmonic) analysis on an electric motor that has an encoder.

To do this analysis, we need to log data from the torque sensor on each encoder pulse.

Previosly we have done this using a National Instruments data acquisition card and Labivew. I was wondering if it was possible to set up the external trigger on a picoscope to acquire data in this way.

All of the information I have about triggering on the picoscope seems to relate to triggering a screen or a batch of data rather than triggering every data point.

Please take a look at our guide for advanced triggering ... ering.html, the functionality is available in the Picoscope software and through the programming interface.

If you need further clarification then please contact our technical team at and they will be able to assist you.
