Differential WiFi Oscilloscopes with up to 16 Bit Resolution

TiePie WiFiScopeWS6DIFF17 March 2020 - TiePie engineering introduced two new members of the high resolution WiFiScope series oscilloscopes. The new WiFiScopes mark a new, innovative development of TiePie engineering: the first and industry’s only WiFi connected oscilloscopes with differential inputs. Available are two models with 4 channels: WiFiScope WS4 DIFF (50 MHz bandwidth) and WiFiScope WS6 DIFF (250 MHz bandwidth).

The differential WiFi oscilloscopes can be used via an ethernet connection (LAN, WiFi or WAN) but also still with a USB 2.0 / 3.0 connection. The built-in battery gives the WiFiScope the possibility to perform fully wireless differential measurements. Measurements can then be performed completely galvanically isolated, and over long distances.

With a WAN connection, world wide differential measurements can be performed. The Multi Channel software gives an overview of the available USB instruments and network instruments. The differential WiFiScope is so transparent that it appears that the ethernet connected instrument is connected directly to the computer. All hardware and software functions of the oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, data logger and voltmeter remain available via the network. Specific network knowledge is not required.

 With the WiFi oscilloscope, high speed real time continuous data acquisition rates of 5 MSamples / second can be achieved with a resolution of 8 to 16 bits and, via LAN / WAN connections, high speed real time continuous data acquisition rates of 20 MSamples / second can be achieved with a resolution of 8-16 bits. Via USB connections, high speed real time continuous data acquisition rates of 200 MSamples / second can be achieved with a resolution of 8-16 bits.


Combined with the free Multi Channel oscilloscope software, the WiFiScope WS4 DIFF and WiFiScope WS6 DIFF turn a PC into an High Resolution Differential Oscilloscope, Precision Spectrum analyzer, EMI Pre compliance analyzer, High Performance Multimeter, Very Fast differential Data logger and Comprehensive Protocol Analyzer. The Multi Channel oscilloscope software gives the opportunity to share data with everybody and to analyze data without the need of an instrument. The Multi Channel oscilloscope software offers sophisticated data analysis capabilities using many user configurable data processing I/O blocks, showing the analysis results in graphs, tables and/or meter displays.

Time consuming complicated instrument setups are no longer required using the unique Quick Setup system with over 700 different instrument Quick Setups. Each Quick Setup contains all required instrument settings, as well as example signals and background information on how to connect the instrument.

A full Software Development Kit (SDK) for writing own PC-based data acquisition software is available, as well as examples in C, C++, C#, Python, Matlab, Node.js and Visual Basic.NET. Own written data acquisition software for the Handyscope HS4 DIFF and Handyscope HS6 DIFF can be used directly for the WiFiScope WS4 DIFF and WiFiScope WS6 DIFF.
