Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

Alright. I'm giving up on the Raspberry Pi for now. Sounded like a great idea. The footprint on my bench is small. But I just can't get the PicoScope 4223 I have working with it. Usb permissions?!? My Imac will be running the show for now. Honestly, I just plugged my scope into my Imac and everythin...

Covid 19 has not kept me slow at work. So haven't been able to spend as much time as I'd like But Almost! I found where the software was installed. Not in the directory I was currently in. I had to watch the video a couple more times on doing the install. Installed to Directory : Application or othe...

Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

Sorry I am still having issues on the raspberry pi install. I Wanted to say thanks to whoever's updated the website for picolog to include my picoscope 4423. Feels great to be included. I thought I had picolog installed it on the latest raspian os. I am use to software installing to the current fold...

Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

Thanks Steve. Just needed to hear it. Down to missing one cable which I bought today. So will be starting up with the RPie tomorrow. It is working well on my IMAC for the moment. But as you say, I don't really want to run it on that. I would like to have it very mobile. My IMAC is not moving anywher...

Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

Having a little trouble getting Picolog up and running on the Raspberry PI. Got it running on my Imac today. Yesterday it would not sample more than 1 sample. That kind of defeated the whole reason for setting this up. I only changed the sample rate from 1 per second to 500ms, and suddenly it starte...

Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

1st I want to report with confidence that I returned the vehicle to the customer today. The vehicle sat at our shop for the course of a week with a new battery in it. No sign of a loss in battery charge over that time. I have the old battery still on my bench. Charged last Friday to 12.43 Volts and ...

Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

This one is elusive. I did all the normal testing. Charged the battery fully. tested with both of our captive battery testers earlier in the week. I truly believe in running the headlights as suggested , watching what it does to Open Circuit Voltage. No sign of issue. Starts fine. None of the normal...

Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

If you suspect battery, charge it and disconnect from auto. Check 2 days later. That is just too simple! I've got that battery fully charged again, and sitting on the bench for the weekend. Question - How valid is this test without a fixed parasitic draw? I'm thinking I should put a .030 Amp draw o...

Re: Yet Another Parasitic Draw Case

Sorry! I know what you mean. I honestly bought it for the data logging only. I have plenty of really good DVOMs. Youtube had lots of videos but very little on the data logging feature. You have to do some wadding....Sorry again! But, I didn't want to spend the $300 on the data logging meter I wanted...
