Saelig Introduces Micsig STO1004 100MHz Battery-Portable Oscilloscopes

 Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the Micsig STO1004 four-channel battery-powered portable oscilloscope, which offers 100MHz bandwidth, 70Mpts memory, 1GSa/s sampling (single channel), 130,000wfm/s refresh rate, and a 7.5Ah Li battery for extended field use. Improvements over previous Micsig models include an intelligent bidirectional Universal Probe Interface for accommodating and powering smart probes such as those with differential inputs and new joystick control buttons. A smartphone app is also available for remote instrument control.

This innovative portable instrument combines a capacitive 8” TFT LCD touch screen (touch, drag, and swipe) with traditional “button & knob” operation. An external USB mouse can also be connected for additional control choices. The built-in HDMI output adds educational and demonstration possibilities for large displays or projectors, and an auto-calibration function ensures measurement accuracy. The STO1004 is equipped with highly sensitive digital trigger system, and supports serial bus triggering and decoding. It has a wealth of measurement and math functions, comes standard with a digital filter module, 256-level intensity grading and color temperature display functions. Sophisticated waveform triggering techniques include: Edge, Pulse Width, Logic, Video, Runt, Time Out, Nth Edge, Slopetime, and Serial Decode. A screen capture button provides a quick way of saving waveform images for later review or report writing.

The STO1004 oscilloscope can make 31 types of automatic measurements, which can all be displayed on the screen simultaneously, and it can decode a selection of serial protocols, including UART, CAN, LIN, SPI, I2C, 1553B, and ARINC429. I/O provisions include WiFi, USB 3.0/2.0 Host, USB Type-C, HDMI, Trigger Out connections, DC Power input, and Aux out. 32GB of internal data storage is included for data files which can be transferred to a PC via a USB connection, LAN, or WiFi.

The oscilloscope features a bumper-protected black case with a sturdy built-in prop stand for easy viewing. When the oscilloscope is connected to a LAN or WiFi network, live screen images can be transmitted to an external projector. The scope can also be remotely PC-controlled via WiFi, LAN, or USB, and also via an Android mobile device. Included as standard are two x10 passive probes and an external 12V power adapter.

Made by Shenzhen-based Micsig, a leading provider of battery-powered portable and handheld oscilloscopes since 2004, the STO1004 oscilloscope is available now from Saelig Company Inc., Micsig’s authorized North American distributor.

Saelig Introduces MSR86 Data Logger for Monitoring Cold Chains Down to -100degC

 Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the MSR Electronics MSR86 – a compact, reusable temperature data logger that is equipped with an external sensor for covering the range of -100 to +150degC to allow continuous monitoring of storage and shipping temperatures for perishable goods. A built-in multifunction LCD display shows the current temperature reading as well as minimum, maximum, and average values, the status of the logger and the alarm condition, as well as the battery charge level. The MSR86 logger is tamper-proof and records encrypted, password-protected measurements for compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines. The logger’s accuracy is documented by a traceable calibration certificate available in its internal memory. The MSR86 is DIN12830 and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and meets US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for the storage and transport of chilled and frozen foods, as well as those of the EU.

There are many situations where it is imperative to maintain ambient conditions below a specified temperature to avoid spoilage or damage. The MSR86 is has been specifically designed to monitor the extremely low temperatures required during the transportation and storage of perishable products such as pharmaceuticals, enzymes, tissues, organs, vaccines, biological products, specimens, clinical materials and other sensitive products that require dry ice shipping. With its upper range of 150degC, the MSR86 data logger can also measure and record continuous high temperature profiles, such as found in ovens, autoclaves, and sterilizers.

Using the USB interface, the recorded measurement data can be easily transferred to a PC. After halting the data recording, a PDF report of the recorded measured values can be generated, which can be saved for documentation purposes. The report includes a graphical view of the temperature curve, a table of the measured values, and a statistical view of minimum, maximum, and average values, etc.

Made in Switzerland by MSR Electronics GmbH, specialists in designing miniaturized dataloggers for a broad range of uses, MSR86 loggers are available from Saelig, their US technical distributor.

Saelig Introduces NanoRanger® NR-01 3.5 Digit DC Nanoammeter

 Saelig Co., Inc. has introduced the NanoRanger® NR-01 – an affordable, highly accurate 3.5-digit DC ammeter designed for accurately measuring very low currents. With automatic dynamic ranging (9 ranges across 8.5 decades), NanoRanger® measures currents from 1nA up to 800mA with a maximum resolution of 10pA. Each instrument is supplied factory calibrated, eliminating the requirement for high-cost precision components in the design, and thus keeping the purchase price low. The current is measured with a 12-bit ADC which is oversampled and automatically averaged to produce a 16-bit result. Samples are taken every 170uS. Readings are shown every 300mS, built up from 180 averaged samples to eliminate line noise (both 50 Hz and 60 Hz). An alternative “Fast Sample” Mode can sample at 150 measurements per second.

The backlit 11-digit 128 x 64 LCD display provides a wealth of information for current readings; for instance, mA, uA, nA, and pA are all on one line. A Running Average reading (current and time elapsed) allows the user to measure power consumption of specific events, such as radio transmissions. The Range Coverage Bar shows the ranges covered during the measurement; it can be “bracketed” or limited to just one range. A signal-to-noise ratio display shows how much noise, or AC, is present on the current signal. Minimum and maximum ranges can be adjusted to limit the auto-ranging, or fixed at a single range.

Challenges arise when trying to measure the power consumption of low power circuits operating in offline or standby mode. Typically, current consumption falls into the nA or pA ranges that are beyond the capability of most DMMs, but the NanoRanger® measures accurately into these ranges. A 6.5 digit DMM with 1nA resolution may only have a lowest range of 2.000000mA, and the absolute accuracy may only be +/- 500nA. The NanoRanger® has selectable ranges for every decade of measurement.

NanoRanger® is designed with a fully isolated USB interface for device control and data export. Being fully isolated means that a USB connection will not adversely affect the measurements.

Low Burden Voltage (<0.05V) on all ranges.

User-configurable Auto Power-off timer.

Measure leakage currents over time.

Two AA batteries allow 150 hours of operation

As engineers strive for more efficiency from new and existing products, the measurement of current consumption of devices is becoming more critical. One of the challenges in working with low power analog and digital circuits is the problem of burden voltage – the voltage drop caused by current flowing through a current measuring device that uses an internal shunt resistor network, common in most DMMs. The NanoRanger® has been designed specifically to minimize burden voltage to less than 50mV when taking low power current measurements. A large burden voltage can affect the circuit being measured, corrupting the measurement. For this reason, it is desirable for burden voltage to be kept as low as possible.

NanoRanger is designed by UK-based AltoNovus, which specializes in designing and building low power products. Aimed at the low power development community, including IoT and energy harvesting technologies, NanoRanger is available now from Saelig Company, Inc. – http://www.saelig.com.
