LOTO Oscilloscope Selection Guidance
The LOTO oscilloscope is a virtual oscilloscope, and the product is mainly based on the USB interface, so using the LOTO oscilloscope product requires a Windows computer or an Android (Android) smartphone/tablet.
For some industrial scenarios with special applications, some customers can purchase serial port expansion modules for LOTO oscilloscopes. In this case, they can use other interfaces such as RS232/485/422/CAN/Bluetooth
instead of the USB interface.
1：Therefore, when choosing an oscilloscope, if you consider LOTO and other manufacturers' desktop oscilloscopes, the performance indicators of LOTO oscilloscopes are usually not dominant,
but there are several advantages of LOTO that may help you make a decision: portable, The software is strong, and the screen can be very large.
We also found in the sales process that LOTO virtual oscilloscopes and traditional desktop oscilloscopes do not have to be chosen from 2 to 1. In fact, they can exist as complements. Many customers buy LOTO virtual oscilloscopes for use at home or on
business trips when they already have desktop oscilloscopes. Under the condition of the same grade of desktop oscilloscopes and virtual oscilloscopes, the software functions of LOTO virtual oscilloscopes are more abundant and powerful. , which can be
used as a powerful complement to the functions of a benchtop oscilloscope.
2：Therefore, when choosing an oscilloscope, if you consider LOTO and handheld with screen 2 to 1, the advantages of LOTO are overwhelming. Usually, an oscilloscope with a screen is embedded, and the system resources are limited. Basically,
it only has the most basic oscilloscope functions, and there is no room for upgrading. The LOTO oscilloscope is based on a computer or mobile phone system platform. The software functions can be very powerful, and new functions can be added at any time.
The portability of LOTO is slightly inferior to that of handheld oscilloscopes with a screen, but in the current era when computers and mobile phones are completely popular, LOTO oscilloscopes that can be plugged in and used as long as there are computers
or mobile phones are portable enough. And the screen can be as big as you want.
3：Compared with similar virtual oscilloscopes, LOTO has unique advantages. One is the software function just mentioned. Another is the unique scalability of LOTO oscilloscopes. The core development strategy of LOTO oscilloscope is software first.
The development idea of LOTO is not to pile up hardware indicators blindly, but to focus on software development. Among similar oscilloscopes, LOTO oscilloscopes are the most cost-effective, and also have the most powerful and rich software functions.
Software functionality is intrinsic, and in most measurement practices, software functionality and richness of detail are very important. The unique scalability of the LOTO oscilloscope further enhances its price/performance ratio.
A LOTO oscilloscope can be equipped with many function extensions, such as signal source, logic analyzer, current probe, high-voltage isolation check module, external trigger module, EMC detection module, serial communication module…
Regarding the expansion of the building block function module of the LOTO oscilloscope, we have a video to briefly demonstrate it:
Regarding software operation, we have made a video collection, which is convenient for customers to feel intuitively:
LOTO oscilloscopes can be selected for the following applications:
If you have learned the advantages of LOTO oscilloscopes, let's take a look at how to choose the right model for you among the many models of LOTO oscilloscopes. There are several large series of LOTO oscilloscopes,
and each series is divided into many sub-models according to different extended functional modules. Therefore, in general, there may be dozens of models of LOTO oscilloscopes, and customers may be very troubled when choosing .
A：According to performance, it is divided into 5 major series: 482 series, A02 series, 2002 series, H02 series, 980 series. First, choose a large series according to your own needs, and then choose specific sub-models in this series.
The 482 series is entry-level, the basic model is OSC482, which is also the lowest performance among LOTO oscilloscopes, but the lowest price. Due to its limited performance, its software features are missing individual features compared to other models.
The trigger mechanism of the 482 series is software triggering, which is not as powerful as other types of hardware triggering, and is suitable for occasions that do not require high burst signal testing. For low-frequency test scenarios, less demanding signal tests,
and beginners in electronic engineering are the most affordable options.
The A02 series is our main model. The basic model is OSCA02, which is also the most cost-effective among LOTO oscilloscopes. Divided into 30M bandwidth and 60M bandwidth two versions. Its performance is moderate and the price is moderate.
It is sufficient for general applications.
The 2002 series and the H02 series are based on the A02, and their performance is improved. The software is similar to the A02 series. It can be selected for occasions with higher performance requirements.
The 980 series is specially designed for auto repair. It is divided into two-channel OSC980 and four-channel OSC984. They share the same host computer software OSC9822. The performance of the host is similar to that of OSCA02.
The software has added and optimized many special functions for auto repair, so auto repair engineers can choose this model. There are also some 4-channel application scenarios that can choose OSC984.
For auto repair scenarios, some customers do not like to use computers and prefer to use mobile phones, but this 980 series does not support Android phones, so auto repair customers will also choose sub-models of other series of oscilloscopes that
support Android phones.
After selecting the oscilloscope series, we choose different sub-models according to different function extensions. Submodels are represented by letter suffixes, such as the suffix M for Android phone/tablet support modules.
The main model of a USB computer oscilloscope, such as OSCA02, plus the Android phone support module, is OSCA02M.
If you choose to add a signal generator module on the basis of the oscilloscope, it is to add the suffix S, such as OSCA02S.
If you choose to add a logic analyzer module on the basis of the oscilloscope, add the suffix L, such as OSCA02L.
If you choose to add an isolation differential module on the basis of the oscilloscope, it is to add the suffix D, such as OSCA02D.
If you add S and L, then add the suffix X, such as OSCA02X.
If the 4 full additions mentioned above are the suffix H, such as OSCA02H.
There are also many expansion modules, which are represented by different suffix letters. Many modules can be combined into many seed models, which are not listed here. Customers can understand the model list according to this rule,
or point out the expansion function modules you need to add to the sales staff. , we match the delivery. Because we can't exhaust all the combinations.
We will choose some combinations that customers purchase more and make a list of standard models for easy selection, as shown in the following figure:
