Moving on from a “Top Tip” mentioned earlier “ADD VIEW”, a further option found when you “right click” anywhere on your scope screen is “Grid Layout”.
Here you can arrange your PC screen into a specific number of grids where you can choose to display various aspects of your scope capture.
The example below uses the 4 preloaded demonstration waveforms that are available when opening your PicoScope software without the scope connected. Scope Screen 1 displays the waveform as manually arranged by the user (altering the scale etc.), Screen 2 displays the “Auto arrange axis” feature, and Scope Screens 3 to 6 display one of each of the four waveforms.
Remember all of these screens can run live, you can use the time/signal rulers, and zoom feature on each of the screens, independent of each other.
This feature can prove invaluable for customers in the form of a printout whereby the technician can explain the individual area of concern with a particular waveform, rather than trying to pick out the detail hidden within layers of waveforms, or to assist technical instructors and trainers alike to include in study literature or technical reports.
