Continuously collect data from the 212/3

Postby ntalbott » Thu Aug 05, 2004 11:33 pm

I need to continuously collect voltage data just like the Picoscope software does when set to a timebase of 1 s/div, but I haven't been able to figure out how to mimic its behavior. Slow mode looks interesting, but appears to not be implemented. What driver settings and calls does Picoscope use?

Thank you for your post. When Picoscope is set to the 1s/div timebase it will be using the using the get_time_and_value routine, and using the Windows clock for its timing.

Unfortunately we do not have an example in C that shows timers being used, but the adc200 Visual Basic example incorporates this feature of windows programming.

Best regards,
