Product Overview: Fluke 190 Series III ScopeMeter® Test Tools

Fluke 190 Series III ScopeMeter® Test Tools

Fluke 190 Series III Key features

  • Rated for industrial environments CAT III 1000 V/CAT IV 600 V
  • Automatically capture, view and analyze complex waveforms
  • Large, bright color display for easy in-the-field viewing
  • USB and Wi-Fi download for analyzing data with FlukeView® software
  • Up to four independent floating isolated inputs, up to 1000 V

Fluke 190 Series III ScopeMeter® Test Tools are built to travel wherever you go and tackle every troubleshooting job that comes up. From DC to 500 MHz, these CAT III 1000 V/CAT IV 600V rated test tools combine rugged portability with bench oscilloscope performance to help you take on the challenges of installing, commissioning, and maintaining industrial machinery, automation and process controls, and power conversion electronics with ease.

Choose from devices with two or four channels and a variety of bandwidth options. Waveform features, noise, and other disturbances can be captured and displayed with great accuracy because to fast sampling rates of up to 5.0 GS/s, 200 ps resolution, and deep memory of 10,000 samples per channel. On three phases or three-axis control systems, perform timing or amplitude related measurements, or simply compare and contrast several test points in a circuit under test. TrendPlotTM Paperless Recorder, ScopeRecordTM Mode, Connect-and-ViewTM Triggering, and a 100-screen Replay function are just a few of the features that help you quickly diagnose issues and reduce maintenance costs and downtime. These features make oscilloscopes simple to use, especially when diagnosing complicated waveforms, generated noise, intermittent occurrences, and signal variations or drift.

Measurements in mixed circuits with separate ground references can be made with independently isolated inputs, eliminating the possibility of unintentional short circuits. Without additional differential probes and isolation transformers, standard bench oscilloscopes can only reference measurements to line power earth ground. The ScopeMeter 190 Series III test tools are designed to cover a broad application range from mV to kV, ensuring that you’re prepared for everything from microelectronics to high-voltage electrical applications. VPS421 100:1 probes are included in the 190 Series III 60MHz and 100MHz variants for higher voltage applications, while VPS410-II 10:1 probes are included in the 200MHz and 500MHz configurations for both microelectronics and higher voltage applications.

Rugged and shock-proof, ScopeMeter Test Tools are built for dirty, hazardous environments. With its sealed case, it can endure dust, drips, humidity and airborne pollutants. Every time you reach for ScopeMeter Test Tool you can be confident it will work reliably wherever your work takes you.

The Fluke 190 Series III has two USB ports that are electrically isolated from the measurement input circuits, allowing you to transfer data quickly and easily to a PC, archive and share waveforms with OEMs, colleagues, and support staff, or save waveforms, screen captures, and instrument setups to USB memory devices for later use. Saved files can be easily transferred using a USB stick, a direct USB connection, or optional Wi-Fi connectivity. These files can be utilized with FlukeView-2 Software to analyze waveforms in greater detail or for further data processing.

Connect-and-View triggering ensures a consistent display without the need to fiddle with settings. If you’ve used other scopes before, you’re familiar with how difficult triggering may be. The findings can be unstable or erroneous if the parameters are incorrect. By identifying signal patterns, Connect-and-View automatically sets up proper triggers. You can get a consistent, dependable, and repeatable display of nearly any signal, including motor drive and control signals, without touching a button. When you’re measuring a lot of test points in a short amount of time, it’s extremely useful.

ScopeRecord memory stores up to 30,000 or more data points per channel, capturing fast intermittent events and glitches as short as 8 ns. (Two sets of multiple channel recordings can be stored to internal memory for later analysis.)

  • Records events like UPS, power supply or motor start-up cycles
  • With the Stop on Trigger mode, the ScopeMeter Test Tool automatically recognizes a power failure and stores the waveform data preceding it

The toughest faults to find are those that happen only once in a while. These intermittent events can be caused by bad connections, dust, dirt, corrosion, or simply broken wiring or connectors. Line outages, dips, swells and interruptions, or the starting and stopping of a motor can also cause a machine to stop. You may not be around when it happens, but the Fluke 190 Series III ScopeMeter Test Tool will be.

  • Plot minimum and maximum peak values and average over time
  • Plot any combination of up to four readings including voltages, amps, temperature, frequency and phase for all inputs, all with time and date stamp to pinpoint faults

Get more out of your ScopeMeter Test Tool with FlukeView 2 ScopeMeter Software for Windows.

  • Documentation—transfer waveforms, screens and data to your PC for printing or importing data into a report
  • Add text to ScopeMeter Test Tool settings—give operators guidance when recalling settings
  • Archive—create a library of waveforms for easy reference, or waveform comparison
  • Analysis—use cursors or export data to another analysis program
