By Alyssa Dalton
May 23, 2014 – Fluke has introduced the 190-504 series II 500 MHz ScopeMeter portable oscilloscope, which it says is the first to achieve a 500 MHz at 5 GS/s real time sample rate in a 4-channel handheld, sealed, and rugged oscilloscope without compromising on safety rating, ruggedness, or battery operating time.
The 504 rounds out the line of ScopeMeter 190 Series II units that feature 2 or 4 independently insulated input channels and an IP51 dust and dripping water ingress protection with models available in 500 MHz, 200 MHz, 100 MHz or 60 MHz bandwidths. The series offers Connect-and-View triggering for automatic triggering on fast, slow and complex signals; ScopeRecord mode; TrendPlot feature; and memory up to 10,000 samples-per-channel so technicians can examine very small parts of the waveform in detail, says Fluke. The 190 Series II safety rating, according to CSA C22.2 No 61010 (IEC 61010) standard, is 1000 V CAT III/ 600 V CAT IV making it possible to safely measure from mV to 1000 V.
