Here's the 30A binding posts I went with, and might as well throw the other parts down as well:

I also have a 24V/20A PS along side the PC PS power rails, that's what the second switch it for.  Not sure if you know or not, but the scanner card current channels 13-16 are 2A max.  To let you in on a little secret, the color scheme of the banana jacks worked out really well, but it was purely accidental.  The pandemic made digikey out of stock on all the normal colors when I was trying to place the order, so I rolled the dice on the available colors and got lucky...  Hehe.

Yeah I saw they are 2A limited which is more due to using small gauge wire.. and they made them dedicated channels too boot.. I'd rather they had them multiplexed with at least something else

Not exactly sure i'd ever use them, I'm more likely to get a precision small ohm resistor and read the voltage drop across it

That's funny about the color scheme.. i thought you completely did that intentionally lol

I'll probly get the chinese knockoff versions, sometimes they are good.. sometimes not and too loose but usually they work out and are a 1/4 the cost

I never thought I would say this, but yes, I am jealous of his rack...   :palm:    Though, like so many profile pics, it is a little out of focus, but it appear well rounded and perky...  I'll stop before I devolve into Monty Python and Huge Tracts of Land.

I was trying out being a TEA enabler, seemed like fun.  Starting out on this forum, every time I started a topic that tautech posted on, I somehow ended up buying a new piece of equipment.   ;)

This site has hurt my pocket book for sure but its all things i deem essential should i ever get shit canned and forced to venture into the great depression upon us, have to stay skilled up and top line to ward off bean counters.. its already paid off 100x fold

:-DD
With the price and capability of gear today it's sure hard not to get on the buying bandwagon as you can have a good lab for not too much $.
Thanks for the brand support guys.

Doesn't want to appear impatient, but the flawed 1.01.01.20R2 for the SDM3055 was released over 7 months ago,
the errors in this version alone have been reported to Siglent by users here since January / February and nothing has still happened to this day...  :-//

Is Siglent doing something else or have you long since decided to just leave the SDM3055 buyers out in the rain ?  :--

I agree with klausES, logging to the USB that does not crash seems a mandatory function of a reputable 5.5digit multimeter.

Today I received my SDM3045X. I was a little bit surprised that it also has the "Filter" menu option that the 3055 has in one the videos I saw and no other 3045X from one of the videos or pictures had it. Was this added to the 3045X?
I also have this ugly thing when booting up (see attached image). Is this something to worry about?

Best,
weeky

It boots correctly, the software has the ID 5.01.01.05 and hardware ID 03-00-00-05-00. Should I better send it back?

I would suggest doing a firmware update first, that might fix it, the SiglentNA site shows the latest being 5.01.01.05R3 so might be slightly different to your current one, although it was released late last year.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried that now and it did not change the inverted "Kernel starting...." screen from appearing

I have to run out now for a few hours but have further tools to sort it if new firmware doesn't fix it.
Double check the Sys info to see the new firmware is loaded.
Please post the results.

Back later..............

This wrong and upside down boot logo already occurred here with SDMs.
If I remember correctly, could tautech help with the recovery software.

OK, is the boot screen still corrupt ?

@klausES:

It took a little while longer than I expected, but I finished the basics of my scanner card breakout.  I ended up rolling 4 separate projects into it:
- SDM3065X-SC scanner card breakout (the bottom half, plus green earth ground binding post to DMM case, plus BNC is the Ext Trig brought to front)
- Breakout for a cheap PC power supply (I've been meaning to do this for a while, just didn't get around to it previously)
- Metering for cheap PC power supply rails to OLED displays (don't have the metering circuits done, but the screens look pretty...  Heh)
- SCPI server via ESP8266 to dump Metering data to network (not done, but screen looks pretty...  Heh)


Is there a separate website with more details about the project?

Is it 12 channels or 16 channels?

The Siglent website talks about 12 channels, while your breakout board has 16 channels.

The Siglent website talks about 12 channels, while your breakout board has 16 channels.

His 3d files and parts list are in the thread since i asked for them as well awhile back :P  no project site

It's 12 channels of voltage scanning or 6 channels of 4 wire resistance/voltage scanning, 4 channels of current sensing for a total of 16 on the scan card

It has its own manual with specs

8 months and nothing from Siglent except empty promises.

5 months ago they wrote to me that it was my turn.
4 months ago they wrote me that all reported bugs could be traced and they were working on it.
I waited another 2 months until I asked carefully and politely if there was anything new. The answer was that you would apologize and get in touch very soon.
Another 2 months and nothing has happened to date.

I am really disappointed...  >:(

I was thinking about getting a 3045X or 3055 (once there's some followup on klaus' issue) and was wondering about calibration.

Has anyone sent their siglent DMM out for cal or found a local place that can do it? I'm just concerned about finding places that will cal things other than fluke & keysight. I'm in the US and there's no cal labs locally except the one at work and we can't use that unfortunately. So really I'd be looking for some place I can ship it to.
