TiePie releases instrument to wirelessly synchronise multiple oscilloscopes

The WCMI-8 is a long range wireless multi instrument synchronisation module, capable of operating over 400m. It allows multiple scopes to be combined into a single instrument, said Dutch company, TiePie Engineering.

The WCMI-8 module can operate with the WiFiScope and Handyscope series 5 and 6 instruments. The WCMI-8 module is placed on the extension connector at the rear of each oscilloscope and the multi-channel oscilloscope software automatically

detects how many instruments are equipped with a WCMI-8 module. All detected oscilloscopes, connected via WiFi, LAN or USB, are combined to a single oscilloscope with a total number of channels that equals the sum of the number of channels of the detected oscilloscopes. The WCMI-8 module has an internal automatic time synchronisation system that takes care that all sample clocks of the oscilloscopes are synchronised. When a trigger occurs on one of the selected channels, all oscilloscopes will be triggered simultaneously and all signals will be synchronously visible on the display.

The wireless multi instrument synchronisation modules can be used both indoors as in the open field. They have a built-in RSSI meter to check the receive signal strength of each module.

For synchronous measurements at multiple locations that are up to several hundred meters apart, or fully galvanically isolated from the computer and each other, TiePie recommends using the WCMI-8 module, in combination with a TiePie engineering oscilloscope. High speed sampling at 100 Msamples per second and 16bit high resolution measuring are supported by the WCMI-8 module. As there is no need for long cabling between the scopes and the computer and with no complicated setup. TiePie said installation is simple and hassle free installation.

Founded in 1987, the Dutch company TiePie Engineering manufactures computer controlled test and measurement equipment, such as WiFi, LAN and USB pscilloscopes, arbitrary waveform generators, function generators, spectrum analysers, protocol analysers, data loggers and multimeters. Products offer features such as real time SureConnect connection testing, SafeGround protection and combining multiple instruments using TiePie’s CMI bus. TiePie’s compact oscilloscopes, function generators and other data acquisition products are used worldwide in many markets, including industrial process automation, automotive test and measurement, service departments, medical applications, research centers and educational institutes.
