This USB instrument combines a two channel oscilloscope / spectrum analyzer / voltmeter / data logger with an one channel Arbitrary Waveform Generator.
The Handyscope HS5 is the first USB oscilloscope (USB powered) sampling at 500 MHz, with a 12 bits resolution and a 250 MHz bandwidth. It allows also sampling at 100MHz with 14 bits resolution.This makes it possible to analyze very fast signals with very small amplitudes. The smallest dis-tortions can be revealed due to the high resolution and bandwidth. Because of the deep memory (up to 64 MSamples on one channel), long record measurements are available for intermittent phenomena and Fast Fourier Transform calculations.
The Handyscope HS5 AWG has a 20! times higher frequency range than a standard DDS AWG. The AWG sampling frequency is adjustable up to 240 MHz. Using the TiePie engineering Constant Data Size system, this allows generating signals up to 40 MHz in arbitrary mode, while standard AWG’s using DDS usually have a frequency range of 100 kHz in arbitrary mode. The possibility to generate signals up to 40 MHz is unique. The 64 MSamples waveform buffer allows for many user applications. No other AWG in its class can match this.
It is is the first oscilloscope to implement SureConnect technology. While measuring, the revolutionary SureConnect technology checks in real time whether a test probe is in physical and electrical contact with the test subject. SureConnect is the right option for every engineer for performing quick and perfect measurements. SureConnect is available as an option on the Handyscope HS5. Assuring a good connection of a probe with a test subject may not always be easy. The subject under measurement may be dirty, oxidized or an (invisible) protective layer may be present. Also, the test subject may be hidden, making visible contact confirmation impossible. As can be seen in the following video, capacitive coupling between test probe and test subject can result in measuring a distorted version of the actual signal, wrongly suggesting a connection. SureConnect however immediately shows you whether a good connection is present.
