MUNICH—Rohde & Schwarz has unveiled a new handheld oscilloscope that combines five instruments in a compact, mobile form for installation and maintenance work. The system includes isolated inputs and communications interfaces; in addition it meets CAT IV standards and can carry out measurements on low voltage installation sources up to 600 V.
The Scope Rider is based on a high performance oscilloscope with a digital tracker system, 33 automatic measurement functions, mask test and XY diagram mode. It has an acquisition rate of 50,000 waveforms per second, a 10-bit A/D converter and a maximum bandwidth of 500 MHz for analog input channels. It also has the ability to function as a logic analyzer with eight additional digital channels, a protocol analyzer with trigger and decoding capability, a data logger and as a digital multimeter.
This portable oscilloscope comes with a large format capacitive touchscreen, large buttons and a multifunction wheel for parameter adjustment. It also has R&S Scope Rider’s IP51 certified housing for environmental protection.
For storage and transfer of measurement data, the Scope Rider features a microSD card, USB and Ethernet ports. The system also features a WLAN interface.
R&S will offer the Scope Rider as a four channel or two channel instrument, with the two channel version featuring a digital multimeter. The system will have bandwidths of 60 MHz, 100 MHz, 200 MHz, 350 MHz and 500 MHz. Trigger and decoding options will be available for I2C, SPI, UART, RS 232, RS 422 and RS-485.
