WiFiScope Connection possibilities

High speed data acquisition, many ways to connect

The WiFiScope WS5 and WiFiScope WS6 add new dimensions to measurement applications. Connecting to your instrument, performing measurements and collecting measurement data can now be done on your desk, from the other side of your office, from the other side of your facility or even from the other side of the world. All you need is a USB connection or a WiFi connection or a wired LAN connection.

Standard oscilloscope use

With each type of data connection, standard oscilloscope use at the highest sampling rate of an instrument is available. Therefore, if you have a WiFiScope WS6 - 1000, you can measure anywhere in the world with 1 GSa/s sampling rate, independently from the data connection.

Live streaming use or high speed data acquisition

When operating in live streaming mode, or high speed data acquisition mode, the instrument measured continuously without losing data. The live stream software supports the possibility to view the measured data and freeze it while measuring continues. The maximum sampling rate of the high speed data acquisition depends on the speed of the data connection. In a live streaming measurement the signal is continuously measured, without interruptions. During the high speed data acquisition, the measured data can be viewed immediately while it is also possible to browse through the measured data to see what has been measured already. The live stream is stored on the computer and can be reviewed later.

With a USB connection, the high speed data acquisition is fastest: 200 MSa/s (5 ns scan interval). With a wired LAN connection, the high speed data acquisition rate is approximately 20 MSa/s (50 ns scan interval). With a WiFi connection, the the high speed data acquisition rate is approximately 1 MSa/s (1 µs scan interval). These rates also depend on the performance of the used computer.

The high speed data acquisition function of the WiFiScope offers many possibilities to measure signals continuously at high speed without memory limitation. The WifiScope can be used for continuous data logging up to a year. High speed data logging over a long distance is now possible, with a WiFiScope.

Measuring nearby

Very fast live data streaming of high speed data acquisition up to 200 MSa/s.

One PC connected to one WiFiScope directly with a USB cable

The WiFiScope is powered via the USB or via the external power supply, with battery backup.

Long distance measuring

Distances up to 100 m with one network cable. By adding network switches and additional network cables, the distance can be increased in 100 m steps.

Live high speed data streaming up to 20 MSa/s.

One PC connected to one WiFiScope directly with a LAN cable

The WiFiScope is powered by its built-in battery, or via the external power supply.

Galvanically isolated measuring

Measure galvanically isolated from the computer, within the WiFi signal range. Distortions caused by ground loops are avoided and the PC is protected against high voltage peaks. The WiFiScope can be used floating, when the application requires. Live data recording up to 1 MSa/s can be performed, up to many days long.
