Scope meter delivers 5Giga-samples a second
Fluke's 190-504 Series II 500 MHz ScopeMeter portable oscilloscope is the first to achieve a 500 MHz at 5 GS/s real time sample rate in a four-channel handheld, sealed, and rugged oscilloscope.
The meter fills the needs of professional electronic troubleshooters working on medical, communications, navigation and military devices.
They need it for greater accuracy and clarity of shape and amplitude of unknown waveform phenomena such as transients, induced noise and ringing, or reflections.
The 504 rounds out the line of rugged 190 Series II ScopeMeters that feature two or four independently insulated input channels and an IP51 dust and dripwater proof rating with models available in 500 MHz, 200 MHz, 100 MHz or 60 MHz bandwidths.
The series features deep memory up to 10,000 samplesper-channel so technicians can examine very small parts of the waveform in detail.
The 190 include functions including automatic triggering on fast, slow or even complex signals, ScopeRecord, TrendPlot and automatic measurements functions.
