Re: Issue with Triggering from a filtered channel?

Hi, As Steve says the filter is applied in software so is done after the hardware trigger in the scope. If you have a PicoScope 4425 / 4225 then you also have an additional hardware filter that is before the trigger. Its in the channel options drop down menu. Its good for getting rid of noise like t...

Re: Beta software 6.11.7 Crank Maths Channel

Hi Guys, Thanks for the feedback on this - we add new features to the beta to get comments / make adjustments. Sometimes new features make it into the full release other times not. We are not taking away the frequency option, the idea of the crank maths channel is primarily as a result of customer r...

Re: Research waveforms

Hi, If from within PicoScope you upload the waveforms to the online database then you can search through them (make/model/signal type/ecu type etc). The only thing to note is that by doing so you are sharing them with everyone else - most people want to do this but I can understand if its some confi...

Re: Sample waveform for Vauxhall Insignia Active ABS Current

I will see if we have any active ABS waveforms from the 30A clamp and let you know, but it will still be close to the limit of what the clamp can do. The problem is that clamps designed to measure under 1A are expensive and will not get much use. If there is not much spare wire to loop then another ...

Re: Sample waveform for Vauxhall Insignia Active ABS Current

Sub 20mA is asking a lot from a 60A clamp but its just about possible. If there is any slack cable wrap it through the jaws several times - if you can get 10 turns then the clamp sees a switching between 70mA and 140mA rather than 7 and 14. Dont worry if you can not do this 10 times - 2x is better t...

Re: Waveform Library Issue

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion - there are dozens of names for the waveforms (channel labels) already in the software. No such list however can really be complete so we both included the option to add your own and always planned to add more to the list based on user suggestions. We have a list of mor...

Re: Waveform Library Issue

Hi Bob, We have done some work on this already. Its one of those things that seemed easy but was a bit more complicated than it looked. PicoScope has a limit, the server we use has both a size and time to upload limit. Where we are now is that files of 20Meg (and perhaps a bit more) should now uploa...

Re: Waveform Library Issue

Hi Bob, Our concern at the start was not to end up with too many huge files where the size was not justified (100 million samples of battery voltage....) As the limit is preventing users from uploading useful files we will increase the limit as you and others have suggested. If we can do this withou...

Re: Vehicle Libary

Hi,

The list of vehicles is long but as soon as you type one or two letters the list will shrink to show only a few - type V and only manufacturers starting with V are displayed. Vo and its just Volvo etc.
