This powerful high speed USB oscilloscope combines fast sampling up to 500 MS/s with high resolutions of 12, 14 and 16 bit, a large memory of 64 MSamples and an extremely accurate built-in 40 MHz 14 bit Constant Data Size (CDS) arbitrary waveform generator with 24 V peak to peak output, generating true form signals. The oscilloscope supports continuous streaming measurements up to 20 MS/s and can be synchronized with other oscilloscopes using the CMI interface to form a multi channel combined instrument with synchronized time base. The CMI interface is available by default on the Handyscope HS5. Optionally, the Handyscope HS5 can be delivered with SureConnect connection test and resistance measurement on each channel.
Do you want to use the Handyscope HS5 (remotely) via a network connection? Transform the Handyscope HS5 to a network oscilloscope using an Instrument Sharing Server with TPISS installed.
The flexibility and quality that the Handyscope HS5 offers is unparalleled by any other oscilloscope and function generator in its class.
The SureConnect connection test feature of the tells you immediately whether your test probe or clip actually makes electrical contact or not. No more doubt whether your probe doesn't make contact or there really is no signal.
Multi instrument synchronisation
The Handyscope HS5 is equipped with a sophisticated CMI synchronization bus, allowing to connect multiple Handyscope HS5s to each other by means of coupling cables, to use them as a combined instrument. All instruments will measure at the same sample frequency (0 ppm deviation!). Apart from a synchronization bus, the CMI also contains a trigger bus and a detection bus. The maximum number of instruments is only limited by the number available USB ports.
The Handyscope HS5 measures with high resolutions of 14 and 16 bit. A signal measured with the Handyscope HS5 therefore has 256 times more resolution than most standalone oscilloscopes, which usually have a low resolution of 8 or 9 bit. The high resolution of the Handyscope HS5 precision oscilloscope allows for measuring signals with more accuracy, because the quantization error is much lower.
When measuring at high sample rates, a long record length/large memory is necessary to be able to record a complete signal in the acquisition buffer. Where most oscilloscopes have 2.5 kSamples or 100 kSamples memory, the Handyscope HS5 has 32 MSamples memory per channel. This gives the user 300 to 10000 times more memory. An advantage of a large memory is that once-only fast phenomena can be captured completely. For example complete serial communications, like CAN bus signals, can be measured all in one record to be reviewed and analyzed afterwards.
Low distortion Arbitrary Waveform Generator
The Handyscope HS5 is the first High Resolution USB oscilloscope with built-in 30 MHz low distortion function generator. The built-in Arbitrary Waveform Generator uses CDS signal synthesis technology, developed by TiePie engineering, resulting in the best signal fidelity in its class, generating the true form of your signals. With spurious distortion as low as -85 dB at 100 kHz signal frequency, a very flat amplitude spectrum and a rise time of 8 ns, the low distortion function generator creates signals that approach perfection.
Oscilloscope and Generator synchronization
The High Resolution USB oscilloscope and the arbitrary waveform generator in the Handyscope HS5 can be easily synchronized by setting the trigger source of the oscilloscope to one or more generator trigger events: start, stop and new period.
