Real- time peak detection and export

Hello people,

i know this topic has been extensively answered on this forum and but after spending day i still can't make it happen.

 

I am acquiring a sinusoid at a sampling rate of 20 Khz, with 2Khz samples per channel. For test, i have a sine signal with frequency 500Hz. This means i have a peak every 40 points.

 

With this i can see that i have 50 peaks per second ( which makes sense since i have 2000 samples per second).

 

Now when i try to export this into a text file, i could export my sine signal as expected, but for peaks i only get 50 peaks no matter how long i record.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

If you attach your VI or project, you might get some help. Otherwise people cannot see your code.

Let's clean up some terminology first.  You have a sample rate of 20kS/s.  Each time you read the buffer, you read 2kS.  So each iteration is 100ms.  So you are detecting 50 peaks/iteration, which makes sense (500Hz•0.1s=50).

 

Now as to your problem, my guess is that you are overwriting your file each iteration.  But without code, that is a complete guess.

Here is the vi i have been using. I could plot the peaks in the graph but still cant figure out how to export these peaks in a txt file.
