Instek GDS-1042 40 MHz 2 Channel Oscilloscope with USB

with a two year warranty

A 40 MHz 2-Channel Lightweight Digital Storage Oscilloscope with Color LCD Display and USB for an incredible price.

  The Instek GDS-1042 Series is a general purpose 2-channel oscilloscope and originally designed to meet educational and industrial requirements without specializing in DSO features. This series provides four selective bandwidths of 25MHz, 40MHz, 60MHz, and 100MHz. Together with innovative human machine interface design plus an "A+" class I * TFT color LCD display without any defect pixel, users will enjoy a better measurement experience! Besides, the requirement of measuring data exchange and analysis is integrated into the GDS-21 series. The convenient PC standard interface is also available, such as USB interface and SD card socket. This two build-in standard interface capability enable the performance of remote control or data transferring to a desktop/laptop for documenting purpose and enhance your work efficiency. GDS-21 series offers dual sampling mode, giving users two options for 250MS/s Real-Time sampling or 25GS/s high-speed Equivalent sampling rate. What's more, with high-speed wave handling capability, more advanced triggering functions, and 2.5 kg light-weight design, it is a powerful functional oscilloscope with the best price than ever. Ultimately, GDS-21 series is considered for the replacement of analog oscilloscopes and further promoted as a personal DSO affordable to any situation such as each student in educational labs, service technicians, or industrial field needing large quantity.

Easy to use

   Several acquisition mode and 19 auto measurement functions help user to measure the accurate property of waveforms. The advanced auto-set function makes GDS-21 series catch waveform automatically and display waveform quickly. With arithmetic functions, FFT function keeps user being aware of the results by updating value immediately. Without almost extracalculation GDS-21 series can provide sufficient information of testing.

SD Card & USB Device supported

   A total of 17 waveforms could be saved into the internal memory for later recall and display, and 2 saved reference waveforms plus 2 live waveforms could be shown on the screen at the same time for comparison. SD card mass storage and USB device port are supported, providing storage/transfer of measurement data and remote control  for diversified solutions
