PicoScope 24xx Ultra-compact serie

Met de PicoScope 2400 serie ultra-compact instapmodel USB Oscilloscopen krijgt u een oscilloscoop, spectrum analyzer en arbitrary waveform generator in één voor een zeer aantrekkelijke prijs.

Ongeëvenaarde prestaties
De PicoScope 2400 serie bevat de eerste USB–powered oscilloscope die in staat is om sampling van gigasample per second te doen. Voorheen waren zulke hoge sampling rates alleen mogelijk bij een op de netstroomaangesloten scope, en nooit op een instapmodel. Voor herhaalde sigalen kan de sampling rate verhoogt worden to wel 10 gigasamples per seconde door gebruik te maken van ETS equivalent–time sampling. Deze hoge sampling rates gecombineerd met de mogelijkheid om tot 500,000 samples op te slaan in de scope’s buffer geheugen en analoge bandbreedtes tot 200 MHz maken de PicoScope 2400 serie geschikt voor gebruikt in een zeer groot aantal toepassingen.

Een compleet test en meet lab
De PicoScope 2400 is niet alleen een zeer sterk 4-kanaals oscilloscope die gebruikt maakt van dezelfde PicoScope softwarevoor Windows die ook geleverd wordt bij de high–end scopen, u kunt de PicoScope 2400 ook als multimeter, spectrum analyzer, function generator and arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) gebruiken.

he compact design of your PicoScope 2400 USB oscilloscope means that is small and light enough for you to take it with you. Simply place it your laptop bag or buy a PicoScope carry case and you can have access to an advanced test and measurement lab wherever you are.

Convenient and fast
The PicoScope 2400 range of USB oscilloscopes obtain their power from the USB 2.0 interface (USB3.0 compatibe), so there’s no need to bother with batteries or an external power supply. The USB port also delivers high–speed data to your PC to give you a responsive, high–resolution display.

Sophisticated software
Unlike other low–cost oscilloscopes that may be supplied with software that has limited functionality, the PicoScope 2400 range of USB oscilloscopes are supplied with the same PicoScope software for Windows that comes with our high–end scopes. This gives you the same software features and functions that are available for scopes costing a lot more money, and should you wish to upgrade to a higher–spec scope in the future you will be able to do so seamlessly.

PicoScope is powerful yet easy to operate. You benefit from the power of the PC, and the familiar Windows interface and controls, making the software easy to learn and easy to use on a daily basis. Data can be saved in a variety of formats including CSV text, PNG and GIF images and MATLAB binary files. A software development kit (SDK) containing drivers and example code is also provided so you can develop your own applications or use your PicoScope oscilloscope with third–party software such as LabVIEW.

PicoScope software is regularly updated with feature extensions and improvements. These can always be downloaded for free from our website and ensure that your oscilloscope will always have the latest features and enhancements — all without costing you another penny.

Spectrum analyzer
With the click of a button in PicoScope you can change from the time domain to the frequency domain and use your PicoScope oscilloscope as a spectrum analyzer. A full range of settings give you control over the number of spectrum bands, window types and display modes.

Function generator and arbitrary waveform generator
All PicoScopes in the 2400 oscilloscope range feature a built–in function generator. With this you can generate standard waveforms such as sine, square and triangle from a library of stored waveforms. You can also define your own waveforms using the power of the built–in arbitrary waveform generator (AWG).

The entry–level oscilloscope with professional–level performance and features

PicoScope 2400 entry–level oscilloscopes give you powerful features and performance at a price that makes them ideal for everyone from hobbyists and field service engineers to educational and professional users. Their compact and robust design means you really can take them anywhere. Being USB–powered there’s no need to worry about power supplies or batteries. The familiar Windows interface and controls make the software easy for you to learn and use. While the free software updates ensure you will always get the latest features and enhancements.

With a dual–channel USB oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, function generator, arbitrary waveform generator and multimeter all in one inexpensive package a PicoScope 2400 oscilloscope will give you a powerful entry–level instrument with professional–level performance and features.
