TiePie Engineering’s Handyscope HS6 DIFF features SafeGround technology

TiePie Engineering’s Handyscope HS6 DIFF features SafeGround technology: TiePie Engineering has introduced the Handyscope HS6 DIFF, a USB 3.0 oscilloscope. The four channel, high resolution oscilloscope with differential inputs is available in models with 50Msample/s up to 1Gsample/s sampling rate.

The Handyscope HS6 DIFF features TiePie Engineering’s SafeGround technology, differential inputs that can safely be switched to single ended. The advantage of differential inputs is that there are no connections between the channels and the ground of the computer. That makes it impossible to create a short circuit, says TiePie. A single-ended input can be used together with a standard 1:10 oscilloscope probe but a short circuit is simply made. A short circuit can damage a measuring instrument, a computer and the device in operation. That can result in high cost, says TiePie, but this problem is solved by the Handyscope HS6 DIFF SafeGround option. SafeGround allows engineers to use the oscilloscope inputs both as single-ended and as differential. When SafeGround is active and a wrong connection is made that causes a short circuit, SafeGround will disconnect the ground of the input channel without damaging the oscilloscope or PC. The user can therefore simply switch from a differential input to a single-ended input without worrying if anything will damage because of a short circuit current.

As well as SafeGround protection, the Handyscope HS6 DIFF also has the standard (combining multiple instruments) CMI interface. It allows more Handyscope HS6-DIFFs to be connected together to create an instrument with multiple measuring channels with the same sample frequency (0 ppm deviation).

The user can expand the number of channels without changing software, complex software settings or expensive hardware. 

The Handyscope HS6 DIFF features a USB 3.0 interface with 5Gbit/s data transfer. It offers a fast data transport of 200Msample/s USB streaming data logger. The company claims that there are no other USB instruments that can stream faster.
