Agilent Technologies launches handheld oscilloscopes with advanced displays for industrial apps

Agilent Technologies has added two new oscilloscopes to
its portfolio of handheld instruments. The 100-MHz U1610A and 200-MHz U1620A
are the first handheld units to include a color VGA display.


These instruments enable engineers to view signal
waveforms by zooming in to capture glitches under all lighting conditions by
offering up to three viewing modes (indoor, outdoor and night vision).


The unique capabilities of these new handheld
oscilloscopes bring greater confidence in analyzing and viewing signal under
many types of lighting conditions in a variety of industrial and electronics
applications,” said Ee Huei Sin, vice president and general manager of
Agilent‘s Basic Instrument Division.


The outdoor viewing mode, coupled with the 5.7-inch
transflective display on these oscilloscopes, makes it possible to read
waveforms even in bright sunlight.


In these instruments, key measurement capabilities
include a sampling rate of 1 or 2 GSa/sec and two safety-isolated input
channels. In addition, analysis capabilities include deep memory, 1,000-times
zooming, and dual zoom windows for overview and detailed displays.


Agilent had net revenues of $6.6 billion in fiscal 2011.


Recently, Agilent Technologies launched new optical switches that enable cost-effective
optical transceiver manufacturing tests and higher efficiency in optical
component and cable verification.


Agilent‘s new
N77 Series switches accomplish these tasks with excellent repeatability and
flexible automation control. The Agilent N7731A dual 1×4 optical switch and the
N7734A 1×13 optical switches are available for single-mode or multimode
fiber-optic connections.
