PicoScope 6000 Series can´t connect with MATLAB

Post by palvarezsa »

I was trying to connect my Picoscope 6426E to MATLAB, following the tutorial on YouTube. I installed the drivers, and the Add-ons of MATLAB (Instrument Control and PicoScope Support). However, when I run the example, this error appears:

Warning: No units found.
Opening PicoScope 6000 Series device...
Error using icdevice/connect
An error occurred while executing the driver connect code.
No unit found, please check connections.


Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi

The 6000E devices use the ps6000a driver so need to use the corresponding set of examples rather than the ps6000 driver and examples.

Hi there!

I seem to have similar issue. Followed YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpMIRnvylTk) and other sources yet my Pico6424e is not connecting.
The icdevice() is looking for ps6000Wrap.dll instead of ps6000a.dll. Im using the PicoScope 6000 Series MATLAB Generic Instrument Driver which doesn't name 6424e model as supported. Am I out of luck?

Error using icdevice (line 397)
An error occurred while executing the driver create code.
There was an error loading the library "ps6000Wrap.dll"
The specified module could not be found.

You need to be using the ps6000a instrument driver and examples

Great, (all) works now! Thanks for the link, couldn't find it with Matlab Add-On Explorer.
