Extech 20MHz 2-Channel Digital Oscilloscope
The Extech 2-Channel Digital Oscilloscope acts as a true RMS multimeter and oscilloscope that guarantees a stable display of virtually any waveform.
- 20MHz bandwidth
- Peak detect function for 50ns glitch capture
- FFT function to view component frequencies
|MS420||20MHz 2-Channel digital oscilloscope|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
|BATT-74V||Li-Ion replacement battery, MS6000 series oscilloscopes|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
The Extech 2-Channel Digital Oscilloscope's dual channel optimizes the position, range, timebase, and triggering to guarantee a stable display of virtually any waveform. The multimeter automatically measures twenty different functions including frequency, cycle, average, peak to peak, and RMS. Up to 4 waveforms can be stored and recalled at one time.
Multiple modes ensure the most accurate data possible: average mode for smoothing waveforms, and persistence mode for observing dynamic signals. Autoscale automatically configures trigger mode where the oscilloscope can measure a waveform without a triggering condition. XY mode and FFT function help the viewer understand the relationship between channels one and two.
Other features include 20MHz bandwidth, waveform math, and a real time clock. The included USB interface and compatible software enable the user to transfer waveforms and data to any PC.

If someone speaks to Jesse Ellis, Assistant Professor of Biology at Coe College and Director of the Wilderness Field Station, they might get interrupted; by a blue-headed vireo.
“Bird songs are a big part of data gathering for research here,” says Ellis. “We use automated recording units (ARUs) to record wilderness sounds, especially sounds made by birds and frogs.”
The Wilderness Field Station is a teaching-oriented facility. “In addition to our annual summer classes, we also conduct bird studies here including bird counts in transects, and researchers from other colleges come here to do multiple lake samplings,” Ellis adds.Read More
For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed.
“ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.Read More
Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat.
"This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.Read More
