Agilent Technologies (www.agilent.com) takes maintenance and troubleshooting task with the release of the first handheld oscilloscope in the world — the U1610A handheld oscilloscope.
Featuring two CAT III 600 V isolated channels, this 100 MHz oscilloscope delivers a maximum real-time sampling rate of one GSa/s and a floating measurement capability. It offers a memory depth of up to 120 kpts which enables it to capture more waveforms from signals such as transient, pulse width modulated circuit, motor start up sequences and in rush.
The oscilloscope’s dual window zoom function and benchtop-like display allow users to identify problems easily and zoom in for more detailed analysis.
Specifically designed with a 5.7” VGA TFT LCD display, the U1601A handheld oscilloscope provides users with a clear view of measurements whether on the field or on-site. It also comes with three viewing modes, which offer predefined contrast levels for optimized battery life and customized lighting conditions.
Its indoor mode features high brightness and contrast levels that help clearly distinguish waveforms found in indoor light environment. For more efficient troubleshooting task, the oscilloscope also allows users to view the display in wide viewing angles.
Through a set of accessible soft keys, users can easily switch on to the outdoor mode when performing field work. This mode reduces the risk of misinterpreting or misreading the measurements as it functions in an anti-glare mechanism and filters out excessive sunlight.
Meanwhile, its night vision mode is engineered to be visible even under subdued lighting by providing high contrast levels between the waveforms and the screen background. Useful for measuring non-repetitive high speed signals, this mode can be activated by simply pressing a button, the screen then adjusts automatically with color correction-creating clear contrasts among the waveforms against the dark surrounding.
