Picoscope 2408 Driver

Post by Govind »

Hi,

I am looking for LabVIEW drivers for the Picoscope 2408b or 2000 series oscilloscope. Is there any such drivers that can help me program. Thank You.

Hi Govind,

You can get the drivers from our downloads page here: https://www.picotech.com/downloads . For the 2204/A or 2205/A you would need the ps2000 driver. For any other 2000 series PicoScope including your 2408B, use the ps2000A driver. You can also get example Labview examples from here: https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ni-labview-examples.

Regards,

Gerry

Hi,

Under the download sections there are many options for drivers for Picoscope 2408B for windows. Which is the one for labview, can you please tell me. Thank You.

You need one of the two PicoSDK 10.7.18 downloads which needs to match the version of LabVIEW you are using, either 32bit or 64bit.

We haven't used LabVIEW 2012 for a few years so I would suggest you just try.

Check if your LabVIEW 2012 version is 32 bit or 64 bit and then download the matching version of our SDK, then try one of the matching examples from https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ni- ... er/ps2000a and give it a go. If you have any issues then email support@picotech.com and one of the LabVIEW specialists will be able to assist.

Hi,

Mine is 32 bit version. I have downloaded the 32 bit, but cannot find it in labview. I also have a labview version of 2020 which is also 32 bit in another computer. I tried the same thing there as well but still couldn't find the driver in labview. What can be the problem for this? Thank You.

Our drivers are not LabVIEW style VISA drivers so you won't see them. What you need to do is to use the coding examples from the GitHub link.

Hi,

Thank you. I tried running the example VIs, but it is showing error of not being able to find some VIs. I have attached screenshots of those errors. Why is this so.

You will also need the shared folder which is common across all devices

Thank You. It works now. Now all I have to do is learn how to use it. You can expect more doubts in the future when I start using it. Thank You.
