The oscilloscope which fits in one hand
The shockproof, IP54, HANDSCOPE OX 5042 oscilloscope fits comfortably in one hand.
This ergonomic instrument is also equipped with a colour screen and LED backlighting for precise data display. To make it simpler to use, integrated multilingual help is available at all times.

The HANDSCOPE combines three measuring instruments in 1 on 2 channels:
- 40 MHz oscilloscope
- Independent 8,000-count multimeter with power measurements,
- Built-in 31-order harmonic analyser (fundamental between 40 and 450Hz).

2 MB are available for recording data and, in multimeter mode, it is possible to store graphic recordings of 2,700 measurements (5 min to 1 month).

Isolated USB communication with the SCPI protocol is available. This makes it simple to program the instrument remotely with the SX-METRO software.

These products have been developed using an Eco-Design approach to reduce their environmental impact. They come with a 3-year warranty.
