Fluke (www.fluke.com) has introduced a 40 MHz oscilloscope that combines the functionality of two true-RMS multimeters, a dual input TrendPlot recorder and an oscilloscope in one compact, battery powered device.
Featuring two input channels, the Fluke 125 Industrial ScopeMeter offers a maximum real-time sampling rate of 25 MS/s and a record length of up to 512 pts per input.
The Fluke 125 measures 232 x 115 x 50 mm and weighs only 1.2 kg. It also provides up to seven hours of continuous battery operation, freeing users from main outlets for on-the-move working.
The oscilloscope wastes no time in finding or swapping leads as its high frequency meter-, waveform-, resistance- and capacitance-measurements and continuity checks are covered by the shielded test leads.
Its bus health tester automatically analyzes the network’s electric signals to provide waveform data as well as measure individual parameters. The measurement results will be compared to the standard results with the “good” or “false” indicators displayed on every parameter.
Unlike traditional oscilloscopes that only make measurements referenced to the power line ground, the compact Fluke 125 oscilloscope makes floating measurements. This eliminates the risk of ground short circuit when making the connection.
The oscilloscope’s TrendPlot recorder enables users to view intermittent faults caused by dust, bad connections, corrosion, dirt or simply by broken connectors or wiring. In this mode, users can plot the maximum and minimum peak values. In addition, the oscilloscope’s two inputs can also plot any combination of amps, volts, frequency, temperature and phase with date and time stamp, to help users to easily determine the root cause of the faults.
