Test company launches its first handheld oscilloscope

Rohde & Schwarz has launched its first handheld oscilloscope and claims the device – called Scope Rider – has the functionality and touch and feel of a state of the art lab device.

Scope Rider integrates five instruments in a rugged housing. It features isolated input and communications interfaces, meets CAT IV standards and can carry out measurements on low voltage installation sources up to 600V.

The device, which features a 10bit A/D converter, is based on a high performance oscilloscope featuring a precise digital trigger system, 33 automatic measurement functions, mask test and XY diagram mode. It can also function as a logic analyser with eight additional digital channels, as a protocol analyser with trigger and decoding capability, as a data logger and a digital multimeter.

A large format capacitive touchscreen allows it to be operated intuitively, whilst a multifunction wheel is included for parameter adjustment. Up to 50,000 waveforms per second can be acquired.

The Scope Rider is available in two and four channel variants, with the former featuring a digital multimeter. Both units are available with bandwidths of 60, 100, 200, 350 and 500MHz and the company says trigger and decoding options will be available for I2C, SPI, UART, RS232, RS422 and RS485.
