Fluke 215C

Fluke 215C/003 Scope meter. Based on the 199C and 196C Color ScopeMeters, the 225C and 215C offer the full functionality of those instruments yet with the addition of powerful test capabilities for a wide variety of Industrial Bus systems. When in Bus health Test mode, these ScopeMeters automatically make an analysis of the electrical signals passing through the bus.

215C/003

 

Color ScopeMeter (100 MHz, 1 GS/s) with Bus Health test capabilities built-in

 

Based on the 199C and 196C Color ScopeMeters, the 225C and 215C offer the full functionality of those instruments yet with the addition of powerful test capabilities for a wide variety of Industrial Bus systems. When in Bus health Test mode, these ScopeMeters automatically make an analysis of the electrical signals passing through the bus, and compare the parameters to standard values as described in the industry standards for that bus type. Alternatively, the user may select an ‘Eyepattern’ display to visually check the overall signal quality.

Parameters are automatically qualified as ‘good’, ‘weak’ or ‘bad’ based on a comparison to the appropriate industrial standards or to user set reference values. Each of the measured parameters is presented with momentary value and with statistical minimum and maximum values measured over time. The reference values used are also displayed, to give the user an easier grip on the systems behaviour. Tested parameters include signal amplitudes, bias voltage, rise- and fall-times, jitter, distortion and noise levels (in-band noise as well as out-of-band noise) depending on the requirements of the associated industry standard.

 

Specifications
Bandwith
225C: 200 MHz
215C: 100 MHz
Sample rate:
225C: 2.5 GS/s
215C: 1 GS/s
Bus health test:
 Verifies the electrical parameters of industrial bus systems using automatic measurement and analysis functions. Next to that, an Eyepattern mode is provided for visual inspection of signal quality.
Parameter classification:
 Default values:
 well within limits = ‘good’, gives green tick mark
 within specified percentage of the limit values = ‘weak’, gives orange tickmark
 beyond limit values = ‘bad’, gives red tickmark
 Limits values, as a default, are based on industry standard for the selected bus type or may be set by the user. The tolerance band (percentage) taken into account for the classification ‘weak’ may be altered by the user.
Bus systems supported:
 AS-i (EN50295, 166 kb/s);
 CAN-bus (ISO-11898, up to 1 Mb/s);
 Modbus 232 (EIA-232 up to 115 kb/s);
 Modbus 485 (EIA-485 up to 10 Mb/s);
 Foundation Fieldbus H1 (61158 type 1, 31.25 kb/s);
 Profibus DP (EIA-485 up to 12 Mb/s);
 Profibus PA (61158 type 1, 31.25 kb/s);
 Ethernet 10Base2 (coaxial, 10 Mb/s);
 Ethernet 10BaseT (UTP, 10 Mb/s);
 Ethernet 100BaseT (100 Mb/s);
 RS-232 (EIA-232, up to 115 kb/s);
 RS-485 (EIA-485, up to 10 Mb/s).
Modes:
 Waveform Parameter analysis with automatic read-out and parameter validation (good / weak / bad); test limits are based on industry standards or may be set by the user.
 Eyepattern display mode.
Measured parameters (where applicable):
 bias voltage level,
 signal amplitude,
 pulse width or baud rate,
 risetime,
 fall time,
 jitter,
 signal distortion,
 noise HF,
 noise LF,
 in-band noise.
Eyepattern display mode:
 Gives waveform display of bus signals with user selectable persistence of the display. Timebase, attenuator and persistence settings may be altered by the user.
Persistence modes:
 off – short – medium – long – infinite
