6000 series Picoscope Operating range

Postby dans » Wed Jun 02, 2010 2:02 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking to use a picoscope in an application that has a temperature environment spec of 0 - 49c

I know that the datasheet says 0-40c (or 20-30c for stated accuracy). Anyone know if this is correct? Will they work over higher temperature range?

Is it possible to get a unit with an extended temperature range?

We do not manufacture any units with extended operating temperature range, the cost would be excessive for the very few that would require it. I have been told that some of our units actually work well at -20 degrees C but there are absolutely no guarantees. I have seen a unit overheated to the extent that the plastic has melted and again that was still working once cooled down. (Don't know if the user survived!)
