Logging battery time, bug report

Post by Gustav » Wed Sep 07, 2011 7:18 pm


When the sweep time is set to more than 500s, the scope does not work.

Verifying the buy is easy: Set sweep time to 1000s, number of samples to 1k (or 10k it does not matter). Start a sweep and wait. Nothing happens.

Reduce sweep time to 500s, and the scope works again.

I would like to use PicoScope6 (version: and 5403 to measure battery voltage over time.

I have estimated that my battery will be drained in 15 hours.

Please advise how I can measure this.

Best Regards,

I have tested that on a R6.5.80.5 and it works for me.

There may be something specific in your setup that is causing the issue so can I ask that you contact our team at support@picotech.com, giving further details on your setup, and they will work through this with you.

Kind regards,
