The Owon TAO3000 series is a handheld oscilloscope with a configurable bandwidth of up to 120 MHz to suit your application field. The handheld oscilloscope has comparable or even better specifications to many stand-alone oscilloscopes around its price point with its 40 Mpts memory and 1 GSa/s sampling rate. While most oscilloscopes have a vertical resolution of 8 bits, the Owon TAO3000 oscilloscopes can have a vertical resolution up to 14 bits. Combing that with the decoding possibilities, these oscilloscopes look very attractive.
This handheld oscilloscope is available in 2 or 4 channels. The 2 channel models come with a multimeter included. Both models have an 8000 mAh battery that can last up to 5 hours while continuously in use. On top of this, the oscilloscopes also have an 8-inch multi-point capacitive touch-screen to make navigating your measurements screen easier.
You have multiple connectivity options regarding exporting your measurements, this can either be done via LAN or USB. It is also possible to directly print your measurements via the USB port using the PictBridge protocol.
Lastly, the handheld oscilloscope can also be connected to a PC or laptop using the built-in Wi-Fi module, this allows the electronic device to realize the same screen display and control as on the oscilloscope. More information about this feature can be found in the user manual.
