60MHz oscilloscope has deep memory

The OWON SDS6062 two-channel benchtop scope with a 10 Msample record length for each channel is available through Saelig.

The scope samples at 500MSa/s and includes deep memory, external, video-capable trigger, auto-measurements, auto-scaling, 8 inch full color LCD display, XY mode, auto-set, averaging, math functions, USB output, waveform storage, pass/fail output and a 3-year warranty. FFT functionality is included for frequency spectrum display.

Autoscale can automatically adjust the vertical gain, or the horizontal time base, or both together. This is useful for circuit probing, as the probe is moved from point to point on a circuit board, the display auto-adjusts for best trace presentation. It functions in the same manner as 'AutoSet', but instead of being a one-time function, it's active until turned off, keeping 'hands-free'.

FFT allows instant display the frequency spectrum of the signal under test and the SDS6062 can automatically measure and display frequency and peak-peak/rms/mean values, but cursors can also be moved to make individual readings.

A built-in self-calibration facility improves measurement accuracy. Video monitoring is also possible since you can trigger on NTSC/PAL/SECAM line or field waveforms. SDS6062 features include: manual cursor measurements, up to 19 automatic measurements (including frequency), high-speed screen update, storage for up to 15 waveforms and set-up parameters, convenient USB serial interface with PC software, 400V (DC+AV peak) maximum input, optional rechargeable battery pack and multi-language capabilities.

Sensitivity range is 2mV/div to 10V/div with maximum display of ±50V. Another really useful feature is the ability to store up to 15 waveforms for comparison with live inputs. A persistence control is available too which simulates old analog scopes to compare slow-moving waveforms with previous scans. 'A+B' and 'A-B' math capability is included, while the X-Y display feature can be used to reveal phase delays.

The SDS6062 offers on-board storage, and USB output. It is available now from stock at $399.00.
