This powerful USB 3.0 super speed automotive oscilloscope combines fast sampling up to 1 GSa/s with high resolutions of 12, 14 and 16 bit and a large memory of 64 Mpoints on all four channels. Additionally, the automotive oscilloscope supports continuous streaming measurements up to 200 MSa/s.

The Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG is delivered with SureConnect connection test and resistance measurement on each channel.

Also, the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG is delivered with SafeGround. With SafeGround you can switch the differential inputs of the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG into single ended inputs with ground protection. It allows to make measurements using standard attenuating probes and protects the scope when a short circuit to ground is created.

Safe measuring

The Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG is a four channel automotive oscilloscope with differential inputs. With the differential inputs it is possible to measure four totally unrelated signals simultaneously. It is no longer possible to create a short circuit through the oscilloscope or through a second device connected to your computer and to the car, like e.g. a fault code scanner. So no risk of damaging the car, the oscilloscope or the computer.

Differential / single ended switchable inputs with SafeGround protection

SafeGround gives the possibility to use the oscilloscope inputs both as single ended and as differential. When SafeGround is active and you accidentally create a wrong connection that causes a short circuit, SafeGround will disconnect the ground of the input channel without damaging the oscilloscope or PC. You can therefore simply switch from a differential input to a single ended input without worrying if anything will damage because of a short circuit current. The Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG is the only automotive oscilloscope in the world with this unique SafeGround protection. And as you all know, a connection mistake is easily made, which will now have no more strange and financial consequences because of SafeGround as the short circuit current is limited thanks to SafeGround.

SafeGround is default available on each channel of the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG.

The SureConnect connection test feature of the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG tells you immediately whether your test probe or clip actually makes electrical contact or not. No more doubt whether your probe doesn't make contact or there really is no signal.

This is useful when surfaces are oxidized and your probe cannot get a good electrical contact. Simply activate the SureConnect and you know whether there is contact or not. Also when back probing connectors in confined places, SureConnect immediately shows whether the probes make contact or not.

SureConnect is default available on each channel of the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG.

Resistance measurement

Many automotive sensors are based on variable resistors. Use your Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG in the resistance setting to test them, no more need to take a separate ohm meter. Resistance values can be displayed as a number, but it is also possible to display the resistance variation in time, in a graph.

The unique Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG Ohm scope is the first fast automotive Ohm scope in its class.

Large memory

When measuring at high sample rates, a large memory is necessary to be able to record a complete signal in the acquisition buffer. Where most oscilloscopes have 2.5 kSamples or 100 kSamples memory, the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG has up to 256 MSamples memory per channel. An advantage of a large memory is that once-only fast phenomena can be captured accurately or complete serial communication signal blocks can be measured all at once.

High accuracy

The Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG measures with high resolutions of 14 and 16 bit. A signal measured with the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG therefore has 256 times more resolution than most standard automotive oscilloscopes, which usually have a low resolution of 8 or 9 bit. The input circuit of the Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG has a high accuracy of 0.25 % of the full scale input range, where most standard automotive oscilloscopes have an accuracy of 2 - 3 % of the full scale range. The precision Automotive Test Scope ATS610004D-XMSG allows for measuring signals with much more accuracy.
