Contact bouncing

I am looking for a oscilloscope to observe the contact bouncing of a switch. Please advise set up of the test circuit. Please also recommend the simplest product that could perform this task.

Thank you for your post.

The scope you need for this will depend on the speeds you are looking at. What speed do you wish to sample at? What kind of resolution do you require.

Unfortuantely it will be down to you to design the test circuit, however if you can provide us with some more information as to the signals you want to look at the the speeds you want to measure at, then we can help advise you as to which scope would be best.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
