Transform to a network instrument

To transform a Handyscope HS6 DIFF, Handyscope HS5, Handyprobe HP3 or Automotive scope ATS610004D-XMSG USB oscilloscope into a network connected connected oscilloscope, the following accessories are available:

  • an Instrument Sharing Server, a mini computer running TPISS that connects to the network and the oscilloscope
  • a power supply to power the Instrument Sharing Server from mains power
  • a Power Over EtherNet (POE) splitter to power the Instrument Sharing Server via POE

Using a power supply

The Instrument Sharing Server and the scope can be powered using a mains power adapter which is connected to the server. The scope is then connected via USB to the server. The diagram below shows how to connect the scope, server and mains power adapter.

Powered by power supply

When wireless operation is required, the mains power adapter can be replaced by a battery pack (power bank). The server then can connect via WiFi to the network.

Using Power Over Ethernet

When Power Over Ethernet (POE) is available, the Instrument Sharing Server and the scope can be powered using a POE splitter which is connected between the network and the server. The scope is then connected via USB to the server. The diagram below shows how to connect the scope, server and POE splitter.

Powered Over Ethernet
