Saelig offers 25-MHz digital oscilloscope-in-a-probe

August 21, 2014. Saelig Company Inc. announced that it is offering the new Owon RDS1021 Wave Rambler, a USB pen scope that packs the features of a bench-top oscilloscope in a small, lightweight, and ergonomic handheld probe. Used with the included PC software, the RDS1021 Wave Rambler converts any laptop or desktop PC into an oscilloscope. The Wave Rambler displays signals from 5 mV to 50 V. It features FFT capabilities, so it can be used for displaying the frequency characteristics of a signal.

The Owon Wave Rambler is powered and connected via USB 2.0 and features a 5-kS buffer and 100-MS/s sampling to capture high-speed signals. A built-in x1/x10 switch allows higher voltage signals up to 50 V to be displayed (vertical sensitivity is 5 mV/div to  5 V/div). Control of the Wave Rambler is by means of a trackball built into the probe top.

The Wave Rambler even performs a range of automatic measurements, including peak-to-peak, average, rms, minimum, and maximum voltages; frequency, period, overshoot, preshoot, rise time, and fall time. It can also show sampled, peak detect, and average waveforms. Stable waveform triggering can be provided by signal edge, slope, and pulse.

Compact in size (5.9″ x 0.8″ x 0.7″) and lightweight (1 oz), the Wave Rambler is suitable for a mobile servicing toolkit. Included with the Wave Rambler are a ground clip, a protective cover, software CDROM, a quick-start manual, and a USB cable.

Designed and manufactured by Owon, the RDS1021 Wave Rambler available for $99.00 from Saelig Company Inc.
