ScopeCorders

A ScopeCorder is an instrument combining a mixed signal oscilloscope and portable data acquisition recorder into a modular platform designed to capture both high-speed transients and low speed trends. Yokogawa’s ScopeCorder product family provides flexible and high-performance multi-channel test instruments by combining a variety of signal conditioning input modules, on-board calculations, and deep data acquisition storage. The ScopeCorder delivers high signal fidelity and long term recording for both high speed transients and low speed trends to meet the most stringent measurement requirements.

  • A ScopeCorder combines the transient signal capturing capabilities of an oscilloscope with the long-term datalogging capabilities of a data recorder.The DL350 ScopeCorder is a portable instrument featuring the deep measurement and recording capabilities you need in the lab in a compact instrument you can take into the field. For “quick and easy” troubleshooting or sophisticated mixed-signal datalogging, the DL350 is a portable, powerful, and useable engineering tool that makes complete measurements completely portable.

  • ScopeCorder DL850E combines a mixed signal oscilloscope and portable data acquisition recorder into a modular platform designed to capture both high-speed transients and low speed trends. Using flexible modular I/O with built-in signal conditioning, precisely measure electrical, physical sensor signals and CAN/ LIN / SENT serial bus for applications ranging from R&D research to in-vehicle data logging.
    Localized language brochures are available below in the Downloads tab.

  • The SL1000 is a modular data acquisition system that delivers independent, isolated channel hardware at high speeds up to 100 MSamples per channel, with no compromise in bit resolution, memory depth, or data streaming performance. Choose from a wide variety of I/O modules for electrical and physical sensor signal measurements to meet the needs of any medium channel count application.

Overview:

The DL850 can take engineers to a new level of efficiency in the development of everything from green devices to complex advanced systems.

Overview:

In recent years, energy-saving instruments including inverters have been actively developed. Researchers in R&D sections want to evaluate their prototypes in real time to enhance the development efficiency. Therefore, measuring instruments are required to have functions for not only simply recording data but also immediately calculating power values and efficiency based on the data. To meet this demand, Yokogawa has developed a unique real-time math function for the DL850 ScopeCorder, our multi-channel waveform recording instrument. This paper gives an overview of the function and its application examples.

Overview:

The definition of a high-performance oscilloscope really is all about the customer's point of view. Two scopes may have the same bandwidth, number of channels, sampling rate, operating modes, and memory length. Yet, one will be bought instead of the other because its software or triggering capability or measurement suite better matches the customer's application requirements.

After a disastrous 2009, the large publicly held test companies enjoyed booming business in 2010.

Overview:

The need for accurate and reliable power measurement is greater than ever before. As the demands of society and its reliance on advanced technology continue to grow, so energy consumption is increasing at a rate that is unsustainable without a significant shift to alternative energy sources - which themselves require the use of new power electronic technology in the form of high-frequency inverters.
