Yokogawa launches new DL350 ScopeCorder

The Yokogawa DL350 ScopeCorder is a portable measuring instrument available for capturing, displaying, recording and analysing a wide variety of electrical and physical parameters in industry sectors including automotive, electronics, energy, transport and mechatronics

The DL350 combines features of a general purpose oscilloscope and those of a high-performance data acquisition recorder in a single, portable instrument.

Unlike alternative portable measuring solutions such as oscilloscopes and combined oscilloscope/multimeters, the Yokogawa DL350 ScopeCorder adds exceptionally high levels of precision and accuracy to field measurements, isolated inputs for measurements at high voltage levels, and long-memory capabilities allowing long-term recording for many hours or even days.

A key feature of the DL350 ScopeCorder, is its plug-in modularity, allowing it to be configured to suit a variety of user applications.

Whether carrying out straightforward high-precision voltage measurements or handling a blend of signals coming from such things as current probes, temperature sensors, strain gauges, accelerometers and serial buses, the DL350 can deliver, without extra boxes or cables.

The DL350 offers compatibility with many existing ScopeCorder input modules, providing a potential cost saving to existing users.

For users who are more familiar with chart recorders than with long-memory oscilloscopes, the DL350 offers a choice of operating modes. Recorder mode is suitable for long-term, continuous recording for a specific duration and where the sampling interval is specified.

A set-up wizard can be used in this mode to guide the operator quickly through the entire set-up process.

The scope mode allows the DL350 to be used just like an oscilloscope with all the associated benefits, including comprehensive triggering and flexible memory use.

The DL350 is first and foremost a field tool. However, it still provides the functionality users expect in a bench instrument. The sampling clock, trigger and start/stop controls are all available as external signals, so that a rotary angle encoder or degree wheel, for example, can be used as the sample clock to analyse engine rotation and performance.
