Benchtop Oscilloscopes offer 2M data point record length.

Press Release Summary:

Equipped with 8 in. full color LCD, 2-channel Models PDS8102T and PDS8202T provide sample rates of 1 and 2 GSa/s, respectively. Units include video trigger, auto-measurements, XY Mode, auto-set, averaging, math functions, USB output, and waveform storage. Autoscale can automatically adjust vertical gain, or horizontal time base, or both together. FFT allows user to instantly see frequency spectrum of signal under test, while Trigger Hold allows user to introduce delay relative to trigger point.

Saelig Debuts New Low-Cost 100/200MHz Oscilloscopes

Pittsford, NY, USA: Saelig Company, Inc. announces two new benchtop scopes - PDS8102T and PDS8202T, both offering a huge 2M data point record length, which allows great depth for investigating fast, intermittent pulses . These low-cost 2-channel scopes sample at 1 Gsa/s and 2 GSa/s respectively, and are packed with useful features normally only seen on higher-end DSOs including video trigger, auto-measurements, large 8" full color LCD display, XY Mode, auto-set, averaging, math functions, USB output, waveform storage, 3-year warranty, etc. Even FFT functionality is included for seeing spectrum information, as well as Autoscaling and Trigger Holdoff.

o 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 the hands free.

o FFT allows you to instantly see the frequency spectrum of the signal under test.

o Trigger Hold allows you to introduce a delay relative to the trigger point so that a different part of the signal can be seen.

PDS8102T and PDS8202T 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.

PDS8102T and PDS8202T offer on-board storage, and USB output, making the PDS series the ideal choice for design, maintenance and lab use. PDS8102T and PDS8202T features include: manual cursor measurements, up to 5 automatic measurements, high-speed screen update, storage for up to 4 waveforms & set-up parameters, convenient serial interface with software, 400V (DC+AV peak) maximum input, optional rechargeable Battery Pack, etc. They have multi-language capabilities too!

These lightweight scopes are perfect for any engineer's or student's desk. USB connection makes printing stored results easy too. With a large 7.8" 640 x 480 color LCD, these scopes are small enough and light enough to carry anywhere you need. Sensitivity range is 5mV/div~5V/div with maximum display of ±50V. Another really useful feature is the ability to store 4 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. X-Y display allows you to see phase changes. A+B and A-B math capability is also included.

Resembling much more expensive look-alikes, PDS8102T and PDS8202T offer unbeatable value and are available now in stock from Saelig Company Inc. Pittsford NY.
