Rigol DG1022Z Function Generator Hack
« on: April 11, 2018, 01:36:59 pm »
I recently purchased the Rigol DG1022Z function generator. It has a bandwith of 25MHz and so far, it has worked perfectly for my needs. Mostly out of curiosity, is there a hack to upgrade the bandwidth on the generator up to the 60MHz of the 1000$ 1062Z?

Here is the listing on the rigol site:

I wondered the same thing.  I have a DG4062 and a DG1022Z, apart from a few button differences and the fact that the DG1022Z screen is about 1/4 the size of the DG4062, the functionality is almost identical between them.

That makes me wonder if Bandgap's work here https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/dg4000-a-firmware-investigation/100/ is relevant? Perhaps someone could try to insert the DG1022Z model and serial number and see if the compile works?  When I tried this for my 4062, I could not make the online compiler work.

Perhaps we could ask Bandgap to get involved?

Having said that, as far as I can tell, all you would gain is higher frequency sine waves and a deeper AWG memory, I haven't needed either yet.

You can hack the DG1022Z to 1062Z the same way a DP832 can be upgraded to DP832A

You need to enter telnet command and have a USB flash driver with a file on it

I used the Rigol Bildschirmkopie Tool to do so, but CMD works as well with telnet
http://peter.dreisiebner.at/rigol-bildschirmkopie/index.htm

I tried Bildschirmkopie only via Network, maybe someone makes it work with USB, but this needs correct IVI drivers to send commands

Step 1
Activate Telnet in your windows features and restart PC


Step 2
connect the function generator to the network
check if connection is good with ping
also a firewall may cause problems even with ping working, the DG1022Z I could only get sent SCPI commands on a very old standalone PC in my basement shop


step 3
get a FAT formatted USB stick and write the keyfile.bin in the main directory
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/need-help-hacking-dp832-for-multicolour-option/?action=dlattach;attach=696567

Step 4 with Bildschirmkopie

- start it
- ctrl+E to do a search on the network and connect the Rigol device

- search for devices and choose the one you want to unlock

- open SCPI commands

- check device signature

- send SCPI command with new Model name

- reboot device and check again device signature


step 4 with cmd
- start telnet
telnet [IP_Address] 5555
- same commands as with Bildschirmkopie to write new device number

I got this to work using telnet commands, it's explained here for the DP832 and DG1022Z

Hi to all

I use the above info to "upgrade" a DG1030Z to 1062 successfully. I am wondering now if it is a good idea to upgrade the firmware from 00.01.11 to the latest v03.01.12.00.00 downloaded from Rigol site. Is the 1062 will be still running? Have anyone try it ?

Regards Nick

Hi everyone,

I was trying to update my DG1032Z to DG1062Z but I couldn't because always the "error generated by remote interface command" message appeared. Finally I had success! The problem has that I was using incorrect USB pen drive format, I've tried with FAT, FAT32 but nothing worked until use FAT format specifying  Allocation unit size to 512 bytes I did on windows 10 [ CRLT + R, CMD, format x: /fs:FAT /v:rigol /A:512 ]  reemplace x with your volumen label (I used a 2gb pen drive). Thank you very much to everyone!.
