SDS2000X HD Series

Adding and editing trace labels

October 19, 2022

The SIGLENT SDS2000X Plus, SDS2000X HD, SDS5000X, and SDS6000A series of oscilloscopes feature trace labels that can be edited by the user. This can make it much easier to differentiate traces on the display as well as in saved images of the display for reporting, etc.. In this tip, we will show you how to … Continued

Bode using LAN

October 13, 2022

Many SIGLENT SDS oscilloscopes, including the SDS6000A series, can perform automated Bode plotting to provide frequency response for power supply stability, filters, and more. This integrated approach simplifies testing and delivers results much more quickly than building your own system, integrating separate instruments with software and an external controlling computer. In the examples above, we … Continued

Saving and Recalling a Bode II Setup

October 5, 2022

Many SIGLENT oscilloscopes, including the SDS1104/1204X-E, SDS2000X-E, SDS2000X Plus, SDS2000X HD, SDS5000X, and SDS6000A series feature the built-in Bode II automated Bode plotting feature. When coupled with a SIGLENT SDG series generator or SAG external AWG, the scope/generator combo can be used to produce frequency response curves on many circuit elements and components as well as … Continued

SDS2000X Plus 500 MHz bandwidth upgrade details

December 1, 2021

The SIGLENT SDS2000X Plus and SDS2000X HD series of oscilloscopes have a 500 MHz bandwidth upgrade option. 500 MHz bandwidth is available in the following cases: Only one active channel (C1 or C2 or C3 or C4) Two channels (Either C1 or C2) & (Either C3 or C4) When 500 MHz bandwidths are available, the … Continued

Do your instruments support UDP communications over LAN?

August 5, 2021

Not at this time. Many instruments support communication via sockets (port 5025) and telnet (port 5024) but the port numbers cannot be changed. If you use VISA, you can implement LAN via TCP/IP, which does not need a port number. Here is a listing of current SIGLENT instruments with Socket and Telnet Support.
