Many SIGLENT oscilloscopes, including the SDS1104/1204X-E, SDS2000X-E, SDS2000X Plus, SDS2000X HD, SDS5000X, and SDS6000A series feature the built-in Bode II automated Bode plotting feature. When coupled with a SIGLENT SDG series generator or SAG external AWG, the scope/generator combo can be used to produce frequency response curves on many circuit elements and components as well as … Continued
The SIGLENT SDS2000X Plus, SDS2000X HD, SDS5000X, and SDS6000A series of oscilloscopes feature trace labels that can be edited by the user. This can make it much easier to differentiate traces on the display as well as in saved images of the display for reporting, etc.. In this tip, we will show you how to … Continued
Fuses are a common circuit element and are key to protecting from overvoltage and overcurrent situations that can damage important circuits. Fuse markings are typically stamped symbols located on the metal cap of the fuse. Here is a helpful guide to common fuse markings used with instrumentation, taking a common fuse type as an example: … Continued
The SIGLENT SDS2000X Plus and SDS2000X HD series of oscilloscopes have a 500 MHz bandwidth upgrade option (Click SDS2XP 500 MHz BW or SDS2000X HD 500 MHz BW to find out more). 500MHz bandwidth is available in the following cases: Only one active channel (C1 or C2 or C3 or C4) Two channels (Either C1 … Continued
A number of SIGLENT products feature an embedded program that eases the conversion of binary data to CSV. Click to download the Binary-to-CSV program.
Here is a list of the current products that support Bode plotting and the maximum number of points available per sweep: SDS1xx4X-E/SDS2X-E Series: 500 points (Linear)/1043/decade (Log) SDS2000X Plus/SDS5000X Series:500 points (Linear)/1024/decade (Log) SDS6000A Series: 751 points (Linear)/1576/decade (Log)
Here is a quick method for estimating the lowest current measurement that is possible with an oscilloscope and current probe. This is especially useful when the datasheet for a probe may not show the minimum current that can be measured or it may be missing the noise floor value. For this note, we will be … Continued
Not at this time. Many instruments support communication via sockets (port 5025) and telnet (port 5024) but the port numbers cannot be changed. If you use VISA, you can implement LAN via TCP/IP, which does not need a port number. Here is a listing of current SIGLENT instruments with Socket and Telnet Support.
Simply access the Save/Recall menu for the instrument in question and select Local. The menu will show used/total amounts. Here, the SDG6X has approximately 83 MB and the SDG1X has 85 MB of memory:
Here is a table showing the various memory depths used in the Bode Plot feature Product series Max memory depth SDS1xx4X-E 140k SDS2000X-E 140k SDS2000X Plus/HD 100k SDS5000X 125k
