Handyscope HS4-10 Four channel USB multifunction instrument, 10MS/s

The Handyscope-HS4 is a powerful four channel measuring instrument for USB. The universal software included turns your PC into a storage oscilloscope, spectrum analyservoltmeter and transient recorder. Four A/D convertors allow sampling frequencies up to 10MHz on all channels, and record length is 128k samples per channel. The measured data can be easily processed by exporting a CSV file and then using Excel spreadsheets
Up to 127 Handyscope HS4s can be connected to a PC, which allows 508 channels to measured at the same time. One HS4 is set as a master and the others are set as slaves.
Power for one HS4 is taken from the USB connection.

The Handyscope HS4 is the successor of the popular Handyscope HS3. Built for customers that want to extend their measuring capabilities even further, this powerful computer controlled measuring instrument now features four input channels. The HS4 has just like it's predecessor the four main measuring instruments: a Multimeter, an Oscilloscope, a Spectrum analyzer and a Transient recorder.

The Handyscope HS4 features a user selectable 12 bit, 14 bit or 16 bit resolution (14 bit effective, SNR 95 dB), 200 mV - 80 V full scale input range, 128 Ksamples record length per channel and a sampling frequency up to 50 MHz on all four channels.

The AWG is not included in the Handyscope HS4. Therefore, the HS4 is the ideal pc based measuring instrument for customers that want a high number of inputs and yet do not need a signal generator.

Connected to the fast USB 2.0 interface, the Handyscope HS4 doesn't require an external power supply, once again fully supporting the "Plug in and measure" motto of TiePie engineering.

The universal software that is delivered with the Handyscope HS4 turns your PC into a storage oscilloscope, a spectrum analyzer, a voltmeter and a transient recorder. An intelligent auto setup allows the inexperienced user to perform measurements immediately. The software allows you to save instrument settings on disk. Later these setting files can be recalled, reducing the setup time of your instrument to an absolute minimum.
