Accurately Capturing Complex Signals or Long Waveforms, Using the SL1400 large Memory Capacity

The ScopeCorder’s standard memory capacity is 50 MW (2.5 MW per channel)

  • GigaWord Recording —You can record data for 10 days (1 day/div) on the main screen, while displaying 1-second recordings (100 ms/div) in real time on the zoom screen. The large memory capacity lets you capture all of your data while still maintaining a sample rate fast enough to see any abnormal phenomena.  
  • Efficient Memory Use — Sufficient memory length is available even when 16 channels are used, so you can conduct extended observations on multiple channels (2.5 MW per channel with standard memory)

Automatically Measure Waveform Parameters

Waveform parameters such as voltage, frequency, and RMS are measured automatically. In addition to general parameter measurement function, the ScopeCorder comes standard with functions such as the following:

  • Easily Find and Display Waveform Frequency, Rise Time, and Other Parameter This function calculates statistical information about the waveform. Maximum value, minimum value, average value, and standard deviations are calculated automatically for each waveform parameter. In addition, you can instantaneously search for the cycle containing the maximum value and display it on the zoom screen. This cycle statistical calculation greatly improves your insight enabling you to analyze transient phenomena captured using the long recording memory

Snapshot Function

  • Enables On-Screen Waveform Comparisons Using the snapshot function, you can keep the currently displayed waveform with the touch of a button. Snapshots are useful for comparing a reference waveform with an input waveform. In addition, snapshots can be saved to and loaded from the storage media.

Memory Backup Function

  • — This function backs up about 150 hours of data saved to the acquisition memory immediately backup helps you avoid losing important data even if the power supply is unstable and gets cut off.
    (Backup time varies according to the usage environment. Four AA batteries are required for memory backup.)

PDF output for printing A4-sized reports

  • — When performing on-site measurements, you can print out the data and hand-write memos on the paper. Since the SL1400 simultaneously stores data to internal memory while printing, you can keep electronic and hard copy records with just a single action. (Remember that with thermal-sensible paper, it is vital to make photocopies for long term preservation.) The SL1400 allows you to export results to files in PDF format, making it easy to save data for long periods of time, transfer the data to distant locations, or load them onto a PC. It is also easy to create reports since waveform data can be converted to an A4-size layout.

Real-Time Hard Drive Recording (with the /C8 Option)

With the optional internal hard drive, you can record measurements to the hard drive in real time. This makes it easy to manage and analyze data using a PC.

  • Maximum data capacity: 1GW
  • Maximum sampling rate: 100 kS/s

* using 1 Channel only

Ethernet Interface (/C10 Option)

Connecting to a PC as a Web Server and FTP Server

  • — The SL1400 has a variety of server functions that let you perform remote controls or download waveform data and screen images onto a PC. You can also access the SL1400 using Internet Explorer. Same as with RS232 and GB-IB, you can write your own custom programs in Visual C++ 6.0 or Visual Basic 6.0 and control the SL1400 through an Ethernet interface

Web Server Functions

— Connect the SL1400 to your PC through the Ethernet connection. This allows for easy remote operation using Internet Explorer.

  • FTP You can easily copy and paste files to and from a PC and the instrument’s flash memory or other storage media.
  • Measurement Trend Using Internet Explorer, you can periodically or manually download screen images to a PC for remote waveform monitoring. You can also download waveform data, start or stop a measurement, or setup a split display all from a PC.
  • Data Capture This function downloads values of waveform parameters periodically, launches MS Excel and graphs the parameters on a spreadsheet values. This enables you to check the parameter trends at a glance.
