This powerful USB 3.0 super speed oscilloscope combines fast sampling up to 1 GS/s with high resolutions of 12, 14 and 16 bit and a large memory of 64 MSamples on all four channels. The oscilloscope supports continuous streaming measurements up to 200 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 HS6 DIFF. Optionally, the Handyscope HS6 DIFF can be delivered with SureConnect connection test and resistance measurement on each channel. Also, the Handyscope HS6 DIFF can be delivered with SafeGround option. With SafeGround you can switch the differential inputs of the Handyscope HS6 DIFF into single ended inputs with ground protection. It allows to make measurements using standard attenuating probes and protects the scope when a short circuit to ground is created.
Do you want to use the Handyscope HS6 DIFF (remotely) via a network connection? Transform the Handyscope HS6 DIFF to a network oscilloscope using an Instrument Sharing Server with TPISS installed.
SafeGround gives the possibility to use the oscilloscope inputs both as single ended and as differential. When SafeGround is active and you accidentally create a wrong connection that causes a short circuit, SafeGround will disconnect the ground of the input channel without damaging the oscilloscope or PC.
While measuring, the revolutionary SureConnect connection test feature of the Handyscope HS6 DIFF checks in real time whether your test probe or clip actually makes electrical contact with your test subject.
Multi oscilloscope synchronisation
The Handyscope HS6 DIFF is equipped with a sophisticated CMI synchronization bus, allowing to connect multiple Handyscope HS6 DIFFs to each other by means of coupling cables, to use them as a combined oscilloscope. All Handyscopes 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 Handyscopes is only limited by the number available USB ports.
The Handyscope HS6 DIFF measures with high resolutions of 14 and 16 bit. A signal measured with the Handyscope HS6 DIFF 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 HS6 DIFF 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 HS6 DIFF has up to 256 MSamples memory per channel, depending on the selected resolution and the number of active channels. When measuring at 14 bit resolution and all four channels, the available memory is 32 MSamples per channel. This gives the user 300 to 100000 times more memory. An advantage of a large memory is that once-only fast phenomena can be captured accurately or complete serial communication signal blocks can be measured all at once. For example complete serial communications, like CAN bus signals, can be measured all in one record to be reviewed and analyzed afterwards.
It seems reasonable to assume that more bandwidth is better, but a wider bandwidth gives more noise. To reduce your noise you can switch on a bandwidth limiter for each channel of the Handyscope HS6 DIFF..
