timestap of trigger

Post by bennog »

I have a capture with 100 wave forms over a period of 1 day.
I would like to know the timestamp of each trigger.
In PS6 you could get this from the propertys screen.
In PS7 I don't see this option anymore.

Hi Benno. I was not using this functionality in Picoscope 6 if my 4444 even supported it. As I look for this feature in Picoscope 7 because of your inquiry I wonder about hardware support for timestamp. Are you asking with regards to your 4444 because I did not think that 4444 has hardware support for timestamp ?

it is not on millisecond but it is on seconds. Yes the PS6 supports the 4444.
I think the timestamp is from when the data is transferred to the picoscope so you have to add the time from trigger to the end of the trace.
It would be nice if the windows timestamp + ms value of the timestamp (also available on linux) would be shown. (I know the clock time is saved in the .psdata but not if the ms part is saved)
But even showing the capture time with second precision as in PS6 would be nice.
Now i need to open the .psdata file in PS6 (for as long this is still possible)

yes it was hidden, this is perfect.
Feature request put the second part there also if available.
I know it is not the exact time but if you have 2 captures in a second it is nice to know if it was at the start or the end or halfway the second.

P.S. when you turn this option on the time als also shown in the main captur so you can close the overview and still see the capture time (great to have this back) mabay turn this on by default at the next software update.
