The little digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) looked both handy and cool.
So what is it, and how does it shape up?
Note that this page is a bit of a follow up from My first oscilloscope… that ‘scope is a beautiful device, but not practical in a small office nor is it particularly portable.
Looking for software for a Uni-T DMM (specifically a UT71D) that supports a Mac (OSX), and while Windows is supported, OSX isn’t, although it might work in Wine, Parallels, VMware Fusion, etc…
The UT-D07A is a BlueTooth adapter for the UT-71, UT-181 and UT-171 DMMs, and it costs around £20, if you shop around on eBay and AliExpress.
However, the UT-D07A is not much cop apparently… or rather the (iOS) software crashes regularly, there’s no Windows software to speak of, and basically, it’s probably not worth the cash… That said, it could be a useful addition, if you need to see graphical data. However, it is worth noting that as there is no Mac or Windows support, the ability to use that data, apart from obtaining pretty graphs from iPhone/iPad screenshots, may be rather limited
After watching Balance Charging: Can you parallel charge?, I realised that I needed a clamp meter. But which one?
I had already purchased a UNI-T UT71D DMM, see Choosing which Multimeter to buy, and I was very happy with it, so the UNI-T clamp meter seemed a logical choice. Everyone seems to have the UNI-T 210E. However, there are a myriad of other options.
It is imperative to be able to test the quality of 3D printers, and to have a standard test procedure, in order to be able to test like for like, and accurately compare printers. Continue reading Testing 3D Printers
After my recent purchase of an oscilloscope, I realised that I was also in the market for a bench power supply and a signal generator.
