The new Rigol DS 4000 oscilloscopes are very likely to become more successful than such market leaders as Agilent, Tektronix and LeCroy.
The series is represented by the devices with a bandwidth from 100 to 500 MHz, two or four channels and a rate of 4 Gsamples.
Rigol oscilloscopes have a number of advantages over their closest competitors Agilent DSO3000X and Tektronix DPO3000.
Tektronix oscilloscopes compared to the Rigol series:
Sample rate - 4 GSa per second vs. 2.5
Memory depth - 140 megapoints vs. 5 megapoints
Acquisition rate - 100 000 waveforms vs 50 000.
Let us have a detailed look at a 4-channel oscilloscope Rigol DS 4054 with a bandwidth of 500 MHz.
The back panel houses:
- Multifunctional input
- Reference signal input
- Video input
- LAN port
- USB port
- USB host
- Kensington lock
- and a power-on button.
The device dimensions are standard for its class.
UltraVision technology ensures numerous options of waveform recording and analysis due to large memory and high acquisition rate.
The front panel houses:
- a switch-on button
- USB host
- auto measurements control buttons
- functional buttons
- state control buttons
- navigation encoder
- record/display control
- horizontal system control buttons
- user setup buttons
- vertical system control buttons
- synchronization control buttons
- input channels
- external synchronization input
Waveform recording and displaying is very convenient. There is a possibility to display two Lissajous curves for both first and second channel pairs.
