When 8-bit Scopes Aren't Enough: High-Resolution, Isolated, Mixed-Signal Instruments for Electro-Mechanical Instruments
Broadcast on: 7/5/2009
- Joseph Ting, Digital Oscilloscopes Product Manager, Yokogawa
We all know what a difference the right tool can make. While traditional 8-bit oscilloscopes are the right choice in many situations, they often are not the best choice when making mixed signal, power and/or electro-mechanical measurements. There exists in the market, instruments designed with these applications in mind. Hybrid instruments offer capabilities not found in traditional 8-bit oscilloscopes. These capabilities include: high-resolution (up to 16-bit) and isolated inputs, very long memory for long-term recording and support for a variety of signal inputs (RMS coupling, temperature, strain, frequency-voltage, accelerometers, etc.)
What you will learn in this seminar:
· Understand differences between oscilloscopes, recorders and hybrid instruments.
· Identify key instrument specifications for electro-mechanical applications.
· Why hybrid instruments are often the best choice.
· Discuss specialized functions designed for electro-mechanical applications.
