Title: Rigol DS1054Z Enhancements
Post by: danadak on July 07, 2017, 12:48:26 pm
Not sure if someone has already covered this but I would like
added into firmware -

1) Start by allowing user in very large font to put at least one
measurement on the screen, filling the screen, or 1/2 screen,
so can be read across the room. Seems like all the single
measurements could be done this way with a simple routine.
Font size controlled by user, routine handles display and
centering. Screen is large enough even 2 measurements this
way quite useful.

Part of this would be an auto scaling function to keep the
measurement in range while working across the room. This
would be applied if measurement overlayed on top of normal
scope trace screen. So trace vertical sensitivity always keeping
trace size visible.

2) Chart recorder function coupled with PC API. There are times
I need to look at very slow rate events, circuits, that want strip
chart like functionality.

Regards, Dana.

#2 is probably do-able today. There is an ethernet port and you can ssh (or maybe it was telnet) into the scope.

https://www.rigolna.com/products/digital-oscilloscopes/1000z/ (https://www.rigolna.com/products/digital-oscilloscopes/1000z/)

has a downloads section for drivers and software to allow you to control the scope from your PC. (I've only done the connection for the purpose of installing upgrades and taking a screenshot, but I'm >99% sure you can get measurement data out of it as well.)

Sorry. Make that 100%.

Here's the programming guide:

I'd recommend using the "official" bug/wishlist thread for this type of suggestion:
