Yokogawa Test & Measurement has added another new instrument to its ScopeCorder family of portable multi-channel data-acquisition recorders, extending and improving their speed, channel count and data acquisition features. As companies develop more energy efficient technologies for transportation, home and industrial appliances as well as new renewable energy sources, the DL950 recorder is designed to offer manufacturers a highly detailed view of an application’s electrical and mechanical behaviour.
Providing a unique combination of the high-speed sampling and signal fidelity of an oscilloscope and the long-term data recording capabilities of a recorder, the DL950 measures signals at a high bit resolution while securing data in the harshest of environments. Building on the capabilities of the well-established DL850E, the new DL950 ScopeCorder can handle larger amounts of data at a faster sample rate and with a longer recording time. It has a large acquisition memory up to 8 Gpoint, and a 200 MS/s sample rate at 14-bit, compared to the DL850E’s 100 MS/s at 12-bit. This is twice the sample rate but with much more detail. The DL950 recorder can run up to 32 isolated analog channels with 10 MS/s at 16-bit or up to 128 digital channels.
The DL950 ScopeCorder provides developers with a high degree of insight into the behaviour of these systems by capturing and analyzing a wide variety of electrical signals, mechanical performance parameters indicated by sensors and decoded vehicle serial bus signals.
