Re: Time trigger

Would it be possible to add a link to your webinar as this would assist others with such knowledge and bring about additional diagnostic techniques? We have been doing these Group Therapy webinars for 20 years. When the technology evolved to be able to record and preserve them, about 7 years ago, w...

Re: Time trigger

It's way easier than that. We have covered this many times in our webinars. We call it a VVT range and response test. We leave the scan tool in the tool box for this. Using the technique I described above and a proper capture time, you can measure the amount of total movement and the time it took to...

Re: Time trigger

PicoKev is right. I would only add that you can do a continuous streaming capture over a long period and miss nothing by violating the operating principles of repeat trigger placing it on the far right so that it cannot trigger.

Re: Older software version

Current versions of PicoScope would be compatible with your OS and work fine as long as the PC has sufficient resources (RAM and processor speed)

The only reason you would need an older release is that the current release is kinda broken.

Re: multiply channels by using more scopes

Some of our users do this. This was the subject of our September 2018 Group Therapy webinar. This is tricky as you might trigger off two different engine cycles if you don't start them at exactly the same instant. That being said, at no point would the two scopes be truly in sync no matter what. It'...

Re: Try selecting "CURRENT WAVEFORM ONLY"

Uli,

If you cannot see the options at the bottom of the save window, in windows display options, make sure 100% is selected. You may also try classic windows theme under personalisation.

Re: introduction and question

Magnets are Pico Kryptonite. While they will not damage the scope they will take all the superpowers away. :roll:

Re: Duty cycle not being displayed

To be honest, the only way you'll get to grips with the 'scope is not to use guided tests
Totally agree. It will actually impede your progress.
