Superior performance

Capture signal faults that other oscilloscopes do not see

The high-speed acquisition system of the R&S®Scope Rider captures up to 50 000 waveforms/s and uncovers rare and unexpected signal anomalies.

Superior performance

Deep zoom with 500 kSample memory depth

Debugging serial protocols requires both the ability to capture long signal sequences and to analyze signal parameters of individual data packets.

The R&S®Scope Rider offers up to 500 ksamples of acquisition memory and a zoom function, allowing users to do both.

Superior performance

10 Bit ADC System

A custom-designed 10-bit A/D converter and frontend IC provide the excellent resolution and linearity needed to display signals with high precision.

The low inherent noise of the overall instrument makes it possible to measure even very small signals.

Spectrum analyzer

No other handheld oscilloscope has an integrated spectrum analyzer mode. Intelligent signal processing allows direct input of the frequency range to be analyzed as well as the resolution bandwidth and offers both a linear and a logarithmic scale for displaying the frequency. The entire frequency range from DC to the oscilloscope's bandwidth can be displayed.

Typical spectrum analysis functions such as markers and cursors are available. All these features ensure fast and easy spectrum analysis without additional measuring instruments.

Harmonic analyzer

The R&S®RTH-K34 software option can easily and quickly analyze harmonic distortions in the power supply network. It measures harmonics to the 64th order and determines the total harmonic distortion (THDr and THDf) as well as the individual components of the harmonics. The R&S®RTH-K34 option can also measure limit values in line with EN 50160.

Up to four channels can be measured at the same time. Three-phase motor drives and the electronic network in production systems can be easily qualified and problems can be identified.

Outstanding protection

CAT IV 600 V

Troubleshooting in industrial environments presents many challenges.

Debugging electronic systems at a modern production site can require analyzing low-voltage digital signals, as well as verifying the power quality of a 380 V supply, or testing the power efficiency of electrical drives.

The R&S®Scope Rider CAT IV 600 V rating provides this level of flexibility in a single device.

Why would you want deep memory?

Have the confidence that you are not ‘missing anything’. Deep memory ensures the capturing of waveforms with high resolution right down to the details due to a high sustained sample rate. Benefit from the ability to view longer periods of time and quickly find signal anomalies or important events where others need hours or even days.
