We asked what you wanted and we’re happy to announce that the first set of electronics lab equipment is on its way!

First, our ‘Scope…

An Oscilloscope is an instrument to “see” electric signals. It is a vital piece of equipment for troubleshooting and testing electronic circuits.

This one includes a Logic Analyzer which lets you look at digital signals at very high speed.

For the tech-heads, here are the features. You can get more details about it here.

  • 2 analog channels, 100MHz bandwidth, 1GSa/s maximum real-time sample rate and 25GSa/s equivalent time sample rate
  • 5.6 inch and 64 k TFT LCD make the waveform displays more clear and vivid
  • 16 channels logic analyzer, mixed test, pattern cursor test and data memory
  • Trigger modes : edge, pulse width, slope, video, pattern, continuous time, alternate trigger
  • Multiple interface configurations: Standard USB Host and USB device, RS-232 and support U disk storage and PictBridge print standards, optional USB-GPIB adapter

Have you ever had a nagging problem in the field that you just cannot figure out? Maybe a noisy audio installation or a misbehaving solar regulator or what about an electrical motor that just wont spin?

The answer is a portable oscilloscope and we have one…

Owon HDS1022M-N

Main Features:

  • 20MHz~100MHz Bandwidth up to 250MS/s real time sample rate
  • 2 in 1 (Built-in DMM)
  • Dual Input Channels
  • Advanced Trigger Functions
  • Adjustable Trigger sensitivity
  • USB Storage /Auto measurement
  • Rechargeable Li-ion Battery
  • 3.8” TFT panel(640×480) for clear reading under sunlight
  • FFT available on all models.

    The next member of the family is a Programmable Power Supply.

    I’m pretty excited about this one. Being programmable, you can simulate something like a solar panel going through its daily charge cycle and see for yourself how the solar charger and battery behaves (using the ‘Scope to watch). What about developing a new battery charging algorithm? Maybe you’d like to see how your wireless hotspot uses power under various conditions? The possibilities are endless.

    If you’d like to know more or book the Lab to use the equipment, contact us at info@grincubator.co.za . Also let us know if you’re interested in a short course on using equipment like this and how it can help you in your tech business.

    More exciting developments to come… watch this space.
