Question about Rigol DS1054Z and USB/PC
« on: March 16, 2016, 10:43:29 AM »
I'm thinking about getting one of these units.

Or something else. Hence the question.

Getting data into and out of my PC is important to me. For example, I built this motor and it *ought* to be going at a certain RPM plus or minus 2 ppm. To verify I would like to download the hall effect sensor data that I collect using my new 1054Z, to the PC and just run a program on it.

Is it possible?

Can the PC display the same waveform as seen on the scope itself?

Thanks,
Randall

  • Lots of engineer-tweakable parts inside!

... if you happen to run Linux.  ;)

Actually, Sigrok sounds like a good (better?) match for your task. It is aimed at capturing and analysing data from multimeters and scopes. Sigrok has been around and actively supported for years, and should support the DS1000Z series now https://sigrok.org/wiki/Rigol_DS1000Z_series.  Disclaimer: I have not used Sigrok myself yet!

DSRemote runs everywhere. In the unfortunate case you are forced to use windows, you can run DSRemote in Virtualbox.

I've got the data out of mine using python-ivi, using the driver built into the kernel in linux and using pyvisa via NI VISA.
