Multi Channel oscilloscope software update, version 1.40

September 12, 2018

Version 1.40 of the Multi Channel oscilloscope software is now available for download.

Various changes have been made to add new functionality and to improve basic operations in the software. This is a categorized overview of some of the changes.

Network support added

Remote measuring with a Handyscope series oscilloscope with an ethernet connection (LAN, WiFi or WAN) is so transparent that it appears that the ethernet connected instrument is connected directly to the PC. All software and hardware features of the oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, data logger and voltmeter remain available via the network. Specific network knowledge is not required. The Multi Channel oscilloscope software supports ethernet connected instruments by default.

The dialog with available instruments shows the network instruments. Simply place a tick and measuring can start.

Again, the TiePie engineering motto applies: Plug in and measure

Handyscope HS6 DIFF

The Handyscope HS6 DIFF trigger system is expanded with an Interval trigger mode, which allows to trigger on signals with:

  • a period time smaller than a defined interval
  • a period time larger than a defined interval
  • a period time inside a defined time window
  • a period time outside a defined time window

Handyscope HS5

The Handyscope HS5 trigger system is expanded with trigger outputs that can be assigned to the EXTn pins on the extension connector of the instrument. The pins then carry a signal that indicates whether the Handyscope HS5 oscilloscope is measuring or is triggered. This signal can then be used to trigger other equipment.

Other changes

Several other minor changes and corrections have been made in the software, to improve controlling instruments and performing measurements.
