Set a probe with a magnification factor of 10 with the java

Post by aschulz »

Hello everyone,

Problem: I am working on a java project with a Picoscope 2408B. I Use the PS2000aCLibrary to control the picoscope and it works well. However I want to use a probe(scanning probe) with a magnification factor of 10 when I measure my signals. When I use the PicoScope 7&TM Software to measure my signal I can select a probe and the magnification factor, and the signal I measure looks exactly how it should. If I use my java project the signal is 10 times to small cause I cannot set the probe and the magnification factor.

Question:
Is there any way to set the probe and the magnification factor with the PS2000aCLibrary (or another library) for my java project?

Best Regards

Martyn

All you need to do is to multiply the values reaturned by the scope by 10, that is all the PicoScope software does.
