Focus on: PicoScope® 4824

The PicoScope 4824 is a high-resolution 8-channel oscilloscope. With this many inputs and the ability to see in 12-bit detail, it's ideal for power quality measurements on three-phase electrical systems. You can monitor three voltages and three currents and still have two channels left to measure control and status signals, for example.

We supply a range of differential probes and current probes to suit your application, from 70 V to 7000 V and from 60 A to 3000 A.

PicoLog: customizing channels and measurements

In the third video in the series, our data logging expert Ziko explores how to use some of the more advanced features of the PicoLog 6 data logging software.

First we show the two main methods of applying custom scaling to a channel: equation and lookup table. We then demonstrate how to scale a 10 V signal down to the 2.5 V input range of the logger using the terminal board and channel scaling.

Finally, we use a DrDAQ with additional temperature and humidity sensors to calculate and plot dew point using the math channel function.

Pulse responses of PicoConnect 900 Series probes

Our RF specialist Mark Ashcroft demonstrates the clean pulse responses of the PicoConnect 900 Series RF and microwave passive test probes. These probes can perform non-invasive measurements with results comparable to or even surpassing those from more expensive active probes.
