Low-cost 60MHz Oscilloscope With Deep Memory

Saelig Company, Inc. announces the SDS6062 - a new, two-channel benchtop scope with 10MSa, a record length for each channel, allowing zooming capability for investigating fast, intermittent pulses. This low-cost versatile scope samples at 500MSa/s and is packed with useful features normally only seen on higher-end DSOs, including deep memory, external, video-capable trigger, auto-measurements, auto-scaling, large 8" full color LCD display, XY mode, auto-set, averaging, math functions, USB output, waveform storage, pass/fail output and a 3-year warranty. Even FFT functionality is included for frequency spectrum display. The SDS6062 comes in a sleek, slim case and can even be fitted with an optional battery, ideal for field or isolated operation.

Autoscale can automatically adjust the vertical gain, or the horizontal time base, or both together. This is useful for circuit probing -- as the probe is moved from point to point on a circuit board, the display auto-adjusts for best trace presentation. It functions in the same manner as 'AutoSet', but instead of being a one-time function, it's active until turned off, keeping "hands-free."

The SDS6062 can automatically measure and display frequency and peak-peak/rms/mean values, but cursors can also be moved to make individual readings. A built-in self-calibration facility improves measurement accuracy. Video monitoring is also possible since you can trigger on NTSC/PAL/SECAM line or field waveforms. SDS6062 features include: manual cursor measurements, up to 19 automatic measurements (including frequency), high-speed screen update, storage for up to 15 waveforms and set-up parameters, convenient USB serial interface with PC software, 400V (DC+AV peak) maximum input, optional rechargeable battery pack and multi-language capabilities.
This lightweight scope is perfect for any engineer's or student's desk. The USB master and slave connections make printing or storing results easy too. With a large 7.8" 640 x 480 color TFT-LCD, this scope is small enough and light enough to carry anywhere, weighing under 4 lbs. Sensitivity range is 2mV/div to 10V/div with maximum display of ±50V.

Another really useful feature is the ability to store up to 15 waveforms for comparison with live inputs. A persistence control is available too which simulates old analog scopes to compare slow-moving waveforms with previous scans. 'A+B' and 'A-B' math capability is included, while the X-Y display feature can be used to reveal phase delays.
