Picoscope 3206 ps3000_run_block command random failure

Postby rilgin » Sun Oct 02, 2011 7:50 am

I am using picospcope 3206 for developing automatic test equipment. In one part of my flow chart I need to measure some signals from scope and I need to do this programmatically. For this reason in my code snippet I am calling the functions below in the same order:

ps3000_stop()

ps3000_set_channel()

ps3000_set_trigger()

ps3000_get_timebase()


ps3000_run_block()

In run time normally they all are successfully done. But randomly ps3000_run_block() command returns error so I cannot accomplish the task. I could not see any missing point in my coding so could you please suggest something to correct the problematic situation?

For coding I am using NI LabWindows/CVI and NI TestStand.

What error code are you receiving when the call to ps3000_run_block() fails ?

I am getting 0 as error code. Also in its function definition it says that ps3000_run_block returns 0 if one of the parameters is out of range and 1 if successful.

We need to look more closely at your code so please can we continue this using the Helpdesk ticket you have already created.
