HandyScope HS3, five measuring instruments in one.
The Handyscope HS3, available from Audon Electronics, is
a powerful USB computer controlled measuring system that
consists of five instruments in one: a Multimeter, an Oscilloscope,
a Spectrum analyser, a Transient recorder and an Arbitrary
Connected to the fast USB 2.0, the Handyscope HS3 doesn't require
an external power supply, and is equally at home in the laboratory or in
The Handyscope HS3 features a user selectable 12 bit, 14 bit or 16 bit
resolution (not 8-bit like some better known compatibles), 200 mV - 80 V
full scale input range, 128 Ksamples record length per channel and a
sampling frequency up to 100 MHz on both channels.
The integrated Arbitrary Waveform Generator operates fully independent
from the measuring system of the Handyscope HS3. It has a 50 MHz
sampling clock, a 1024 / 128K samples deep waveform memory, a
14 bit output resolution and a ± 12 Volt output range. The Arbitrary
Waveform Generator allows you to generate test signals for your
measurements in any shape you like. Several standard signal shapes
are available and it is possible to regenerate previous measured signals.
The universal software that is delivered with the Handyscope HS3 turns
your PC into a storage oscilloscope, a spectrum analyser, a voltmeter
and a transient recorder. An intelligent auto setup allows the inexperienced
user to perform measurements immediately. The software allows you to
save instrument settings on disk. Later these setting files can be recalled,
reducing the setup time of your instrument to an absolute minimum.
A major advantage of the HandyScope measuring instrument is the ability
to work with third party software tools through the use of a Windows
Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file. Examples written in LabVIEW, MatLab,
VB, Delphi and C++ are supplied on the Handyscope HS3 disk.
