WCMI module and oscilloscope synchronise remote oscilloscopes   

Data from multiple instruments can be synchronised without requiring a complicated set up, said TiePie engineering, at the launch of its WCMI module. The wireless multi instrument synchronisation module is believed to be the first gathers module to wireless synchronisze multiple oscilloscopes over a long distance of up to 400 meters and combine them to a single instrument. 

The WCMI module can be combined with a TiePie engineering oscilloscope, WiFiScope and Handyscope series 5 and 6 instruments and supports high speed sampling at a rate of 100Msamples per second and 16bit high resolution measuring. 

In addition, no long cabling is required between the scopes and the computer for a simple and hassle free installation, said TiePie engineering. The wireless multi instrument synchronisation module is placed on the extension connector at the rear of each oscilloscope and the multi-channel oscilloscope software automatically detects how many instruments are equipped with a WCMI module. All detected oscilloscopes, connected via Wi-Fi, LAN or USB, are combined to one single oscilloscope with a total number of channels that equals the sum of the number of channels of the detected oscilloscopes. 

The WCMI module has an internal automatic time synchronisation system to synchronise all sample clocks of the oscilloscopes. When a trigger occurs on one of the selected channels, all oscilloscopes will be triggered simultaneously and all signals will be synchronously visible on the display.

The wireless multi instrument synchronisation modules can be used both indoors as in the open field. The built-in RSSI meter means the receiving signal strength of each wireless multi instrument synchronisation module can be checked.

Two models are now available for the WCMI. The WCMI-8 operates in the 868MHz band (region Europe) and the WCMI-9 is for the 915MHz band (America). 

TiePie engineering also offers the wired CMI instrument synchronisation bus for combining and synchronising instruments over short distances.
