PC oscilloscopes are compact, lightweight, modern alternatives to benchtop devices. Used on the bench, they take up little space and can sit right next to the circuit under test. Utilised by travelling engineers, they can easily be fitted into a pocket or bag.Applications include design, test, education, service, monitoring, fault-finding and repair. USB connection oscilloscopes facilitate printing, copying, saving and emailing field data. The high-speed USB interface provides fast data transfer and USB powering eliminates the need to carry around a bulky external power supply.Oscilloscopes are familiar devices to those working regularly in fields that require general monitoring, diagnosis or troubleshooting of any electrically powered circuits, signals and systems.
This covers a vastly diverse range of roles and environments, including:
