Featured Functions
Real Time Sampling With a maximum real-time sampling rate of 2.5 GS/s per input, you can see what really happens, with 400 ps resolution. Both inputs have their own digitizer, so you can simultaneously acquire two waveforms and analyze them with the highest resolution and detail. If an anomaly flashes by on the screen, just press the Replay button to see it again. And thanks to the wider screen, you will always see a 12 divisions time window giving a far better overview of what’s happening both before and after the trigger event!
See what’s really happening
Deeper waveform acquisition memory The waveform memory of all oscilloscopes in both the 190B and 190C Series has been enlarged to allow as many as 3000 samples per channel to be acquired. You can use the ZOOM function to find tiny details in a long waveform, for example, the color burst in a video signal or a single impulse in a complex data-stream. All models also allow the high-resolution waveforms to be transferred to a PC for later detailed analysis using FlukeView® ScopeMeter software.
Deeper waveform acquisition memory
Easier identification of traces, everywhere The full-color display makes identification of individual waveforms easier, particularly when displaying large amplitude or multiple overlapping wave-forms on screen. On-screen color labels, measurements and warnings are clearly linked to specific waveforms.
Dynamic signal behavior instantaneously The Digital Persistence mode (Fluke 190C) helps to find anomalies and to analyze complex dynamic signals by showing the waveforms amplitude distribution over time. Digital Persistence uses multiple intensity levels and user selectable decay time—it’s as if you’re looking at the display of an analog, real-time oscilloscope! The fast display update rate that’s standard on all models reveals signal changes instantaneously, useful for instance when making adjustments to a system under test.
See dynamic signal behavior instantaneously
Frequency spectrum analysis All 190C color ScopeMeter models now include Frequency Spectrum Analy-sis functionality based on Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) analysis as a standard feature. This enables you to identify the individual frequency components contained in a signal. The spectrum analysis function is also handy for revealin g the effects of vibration, signal interference or crosstalk. An automatic window function assures optimal window-ing, although you may manually select your preferred time window.
Frequency spectrum analysis
Advanced trigger modes The ScopeMeter 190 Series simplifies triggering with Connect-and-View™ automatic triggering. Two new modes —“n-cycle triggering” and “dual-slope triggering”—have been added to the Fluke 190C Series to help you isolate the phenomena of interest. N-cycle triggering ensures you get a stable live image of a signal, for example, in-frequency dividers and clocked (synchronous) digital systems, or to synchronize on bursts of pulses. Dual-slope triggering enables the oscilloscopes to trigger on both rising and falling edges alike. This means that any edge in the signal will act as a trigger event and initiate a new waveform acquisition, a most useful capability when making eye-patterns from digital data-streams, or in conjunction with single-shot phenomena. Manual modes include edge, delay, video and pulse width triggering. A fully isolated external trigger input is included for troubleshooting time relationships between two input signals synchronized to a third signal.
Advanced trigger modes
Cursor-limited automatic measurement ScopeMeter 190C and 190B features 30 automatic measurements, cursors, zoom and real-time clock. Now automatic power and Vrms-measurements can be performed on a specific, user identified portion of the waveform using the cursors of the Fluke 190C to define the time-window of inter-est. In this way, the ScopeMeter 190C measures the power within a specified time span, or the rms-value of a volt-age during a dedicated period of time.
Cursor-limited automatic measurement
Waveform Pass/Fail Testing “Waveform reference” allows an acquired trace to be stored and designated “reference trace” for visual comparisons, or it can be used as the reference for automatic “Pass/Fail” testing (190C). Up to 100 individually matching (“Pass”) or non-matching (“Fail”) waveforms can be stored in the replay memory, allowing you to monitor your system‘s behavior over a long period of time, without having to be present!
Waveform Pass/Fail Testing
Automatic capture and replay of 100 screens Scope users know how frustrating it is to see a one-time anomaly flash. Not with the ScopeMeter 190 Series! Now you can look back in time with a touch of the replay button. In normal use, the instru-ment continuously memorizes the last 100 screens. Each time a new screen is acquired, the oldest is discarded. At any moment, you can “freeze” the last 100 screens and scroll through picture-by-picture or replay as a “live” animation. Cursors can be used for further analysis. Use the advanced trigger capabilities to capture up to 100 specific events. Two sets of 100 captured screens with individual time stamps can be stored for later recall or download to a PC.
Automatic capture and replay of 100 screens
Measure from mV to kV— fully isolated and safely The ScopeMeter 190C and 190B series have three independently floating isolated inputs. While conventional oscilloscopes can only make measurements referenced to the line power ground, measurements on each of the Fluke ScopeMeter 190 series inputs can be referenced to a different “low” level. This enables measurements in mixed circuits having different ground references, and also eliminates the risk of accidental ground short circuits. All inputs are safety certified for measure-ments in 1000 V CAT II and 600 V CAT III environments. And the standard probes cover a wide application range from mV to kV, making the 190C and 190B ScopeMeter ideal for micro electronics to electrical applications.
Measure from mV to kV— fully isolated and safely
Use TrendPlot to help find intermittents, fast The ScopeRecord memory stores 27,500 points per input or more, for high- resolution recording of events up to 48 hours, and captures fast intermittents and glitches as short as 50 ns. This continuous roll mode stores events like motion profiles, UPS, power supply and motor start-ups. All models also have a “Stop-on-Trigger” in the ScopeRecord mode, allowing the ScopeMeter to store waveform data until the instrument is triggered or until a repetitive trigger signal is interrupted. This way, the instrument will automatically recognize a power failure and store the waveform data preceding it. With 100 x zoom, you can look at the small-est details, like individual power cycles. Two of these 27,500 point recordings can be stored for later analysis.
Deep memory for high-resolution ScopeRecord
Deep memory for high-resolution ScopeRecord FlukeView Software and the optically isolated interface cable come as separate items, or as part of the special value SCC-Kit. This kit contains:
• FlukeView Software (SW90W)
• Optically Isolated Interface Cable (for USB)
• Protective Hard-Shell Carrying Case (C190 or C120)
The SCC-kit can be ordered separately, or with the main instrument by adding an “S” to the main instrument type number, e.g., Fluke 199C/S (see Ordering Information on back cover for more detailed information).
Use TrendPlot to help find intermittents, fast
Connect-and-View triggering for an instant, stable display Scope users know how difficult trig-gering can be. Incorrect settings show unstable and sometimes incorrect results. The unique Connect-and-View function recognizes signal patterns and automatically sets up correct triggering. It provides a stable, reliable and repeat-able display of virtually any signal, including motor drive and control signals, without touching a button. Signal changes are instantly recog-nized and settings adjusted for a stable display. Benefit from the speed and convenience when measuring a number of test-points in quick succession.
