Maximum capture rate: (100,000 in Normal mode, 400,000 in Sequence mode)
Memory depth: 14 Mpts
Bode Plot function (Requires SIGLENT SDG X or SAG1021 function generator)
Search / Navigate functions
Web-Based browser remote control
Optional Wi-Fi dongle
Optional MSO capability
1.23.2022: The Siglent SDS1104X-E Oscilloscope arrived. I let it sit in the packing box for 6 hours to acclimatize to the house. It is winter in Michigan and below 20F. I unpacked the box and pulled out the Siglent and 4 probes. I set up the probes with the four color bands yellow, pink, blue and green. Two colors on the probe BNC base and tip. I connected it to the Gigabit switch by my desk. I setup DHCP on the Fortinet to give it an address of 192.168.1.200. I checked the firmware release and upgraded it to the latest on Siglent’s site. I tend to upgrade all hardware, when I first get it. I plugged in the scope and started to calibrate the scope and probes. I need to redo it because I forgot to change the probes to 1x. They should be close. First thing I looked up was how to change each channel to 10X on the scope. I plan on posting write ups on how to do the firmware, IP setup, and change the channels.
So I started by unboxing the Siglent and sorting out the probes. The first thing is put the plastic bands in the kit on each probe base and tip to match the 4 channels. You will calibrate the probes for each channel. I am not exactly sure if the probes are interchangeable? Each probe comes with all the colored rights and a screw driver for calibrating the probe. I put the other rings back into the proper bag for each probe. The probe must be set to 10x to turn the calibration screw not 1x.
Siglent PP510 100MHz 1X/10X attenuation, 85/18pf, 1M/10Mohm, 6M/70MHz, 300V/600V, operating temperature -15 to 75 degrees probe
So the probe: 1x is 6 MHz and 10x is 70-100 MHz
I coonected the network cable from my gigabit switch to the NIC Port on the back. I didnt find a wireless dongle mentioned in some of the videos. Many state the direct connect is faster. I went into the network interface and found the mac address. I setup a reserved IP on my Fortinet firewall for the Siglent as 192.168.1.200. I am planning on installing their desktop software to control the scope. It would have been interesting to connect it up IPv6. The first task is to get your oscilloscope onto your network. Plug the LAN port into a switch or router, and navigate to Utility -> I/O -> IP Set. Then use the soft button to toggle the DHCP Field from “Disabled” to “Enabled.” The scope should then pull an IP address from your router. For now, I put the DHCP reservation on my Fortinet.
1 Hz = 1 /seconds or 1 / 1 ms = 1000 Hz
1/ 0.001 seconds = 1000 Hz = 1 = (0.001 seconds )(1000/seconds)
Think of is as 1000 Hz give you a period of 1 ms.
100 Hz is a period of 10 ms 1/0.010 seconds = 100 Hz.
Generally, scopes will feature around 8-10 vertical (voltage) divisions, and 10-14 horizontal (seconds) divisions. Older scopes (especially those of the analog variety) usually feature a simple, monochrome display, though the intensity of the wave may vary.
