I want to connect my oscilloscope to the shake any ideas ?

Hello Charles, welcome to the community!

I think it is possible to do so, you can surely connect the oscilloscope straight up to the geophone, but Iā€™m not 100% sure about where to link the instrument with the Shake board itself. I will contact our hardware team to get more information on this.

In the meanwhile, can you give us more details on the project that you have in mind? What Shake do you have? Thank you.

Thank you for getting back to me, i have the RS1D | Turnkey i just want to see it live through he oscilloscope as there wont be any lag.

No problem at all. If you want to connect an oscilloscope to the geophone, this is possible by simply linking the grey cable to the positive (usually red) test lead of the oscilloscope, and the blue cable to the negative (black) one.

However, there are a couple of software solution to see the data streaming from your Shake without the need of connecting an oscilloscope:

  1. SWARM: this is free software that can be downloaded from the bottom of the main page rs.local of the Shake, via the second green icon. Once downloaded, here it is possible to find the installation guide: https://manual.raspberryshake.org/swarm.html#swarm and here instead the setup to visualise the real-time waveforms: https://manual.raspberryshake.org/traces.html#swarm

  2. RSUDP: this is also another free solution, developed by the RaspberryShake Team, capable of visualising real-time data from your Shake. The guide can be found here: https://raspishake.github.io/rsudp/
    It is a bit more complex to install, but at the same time, it allows more customisation, if needed.

Awesome Thank you so much for the information this really helps a lot.
