CAPTURE AND RECREATE WAVEFORMS WITH A DLM2000 AND FG420

Engineers and scientists have been using oscilloscopes for many years to observe and capture waveforms from electrical devices. With the advancements of oscilloscope and recorder technology, these instruments can be left in the field to capture various signals for extended periods of time. Once these signals are captured and stored, engineers are then able to perform post data analysis on all of the captured waveforms. These waveforms can be analyzed for various properties such as amplitude, frequency, rise time, distortion, time interval, etc. 

Once the desired properties have been analyzed, an engineer begins to further examine the cause of the observed phenomena. The issue for a number of engineers and scientists is being able to reproduce the phenomena that was captured by an oscilloscope, especially if it is a transient event. Previously, some engineers would record the various characteristics of the waveform and then attempt to manually enter points. Yokogawa now offers a convenient solution for the following application. 

With a few steps, an engineer is able to capture a signal on a Yokogawa oscilloscope, save it to a file, decimate it with the XviewerLite software, recreate it with the Arb Edit Software and then transfer it to the FG410/420 Arbitrary Function Generator.

Oscilloscopes

Oscilloscopes are a common type of test instrument used to capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time.
