Automatically Measure 20 Wave Parameters
 
Rigol-DS1100-Series-1
Automatic measure

DS1000E, DS1000D series oscilloscopes provide 20 types of wave parameters for automatically measuring, which contains 10 Voltage and 10 Time parameters


Cursor Measure
Rigol-DS1100-Series-2
FFT cursor measure

In cursor mode, users can easily measure by moving cursor. Besides, 3 types of cursor measurement are optional: Manual, Track and Auto


Multiple Trigger
Rigol-DS1100-Series-3
Pattern trigger

Both DS1000E and DS1000D series contain abundant triggers:

  • Edge trigger, Pulse Width trigger, Video trigger, Slope trigger
  • Alternate trigger, Pattern trigger (DS1000D), Duration trigger (DS1000D)

Especially the duration trigger is a new type from perfect combination of patten and pulse width trigger. Unique function of adjustable trigger sensitivity is good for filtering possible noise from signal in order to avoid false triggers.


16 Channels Logic Analyzer
Being equipped with 16 channels logic analyzer, DS1000D series mixed signal oscilloscopes achieve mixed signal measure coordinating with 2 analog channels.

Each channel can be turned on or off independently, or in groups of 8(D7-D0 and D15-D8); also, you can set waveform size and threshold types or change the display position on screen for digital channel.
 
Rigol-DS1100-Series-4
Digital channels setup

Waveform Recording
In virtue of waveform recording function from DS1000E and DS1000D, not only the outputs from two channels could be recorded, but also the waves outputted by Pass/Fail test could be easily recorded. Totally, up to 1000 frames of waves are available to record. Besides, users can analyze waves according to reall or save transient waves so as to get more exact datum.
 
Rigol-DS1100-Series-5
Waveform recording

Pass/Fail Testing
The Pass/Fail function monitors the changes of signals by comparing whether the input signal is within the pre-defined mask. The testing results not only can be displayed on screen or output by isolated pass/fail port, but also can be alarmed according to turn on system sound.

Q & A

Q:  What is the Rigol DS1052E?
A:  The Rigol DS1052E is a two channel digital oscilloscope.  It has a bandwidth of 50 MHz. 
 
Q:  What is the difference between the DS1102E and the DS1052E?
A:  These two products have different bandwidths.  The DS1102E is 100 MHz, while the DS1052E is 50 MHz.
 
Q:  How much bandwidth do I need?
A:  Generally, you should select a bandwidth that is 5 times greater than the maximum signal you will measure.  For example, if the maximum signal you would measure is 100 MHz, you should purchase a scope with a 500 MHz bandwidth.  An oscilloscope must be able to see more than the fastest signal you want to measure.
 
Q:  Does the Rigol DS1052E come with probes, or must they be purchased separately?
A:  The DS1052E comes with two RP2200 probes.  You would not need to buy these separately.  It also includes a power cord, USB cable, calibration certificate and CD.

Pretty good product, Great Deal!

By this point you've probably read all about this scope. Its just like they say, its a great scope with tons of features. Its not built like an old Tektronix, but it gets the job done well for a whoooole lot less $.
Probably not the best for travel as it seems to have a lighter than desirable build strength, but totally great for the home, or light professional use.
It does kinda wig out and glitch every so often, but its brief and rarely interrupts.
IF you need a decent cheap scope with tons of features, buy this .

This mid priced scope has everything you need on a project bench including the ability to generate wave forms that can be saved to USB and transferred to a computer for forums or blogs. Compact size does not take up a lot of bench space either! Very accurate too!

Compact 50 MHz Scope

I use the scope primarily to debug hardware and software issues with my EBike projects. 50MHz is plenty of bandwidth for a 16 MHz processor. It is light and portable for use both indoors and outside. The image capture feature allows taking documentation scope shots and putting them in speadsheets and Doc files. So far I have managed to use the delayed trigger and signal history features to debug problems without resorting to a more complex logic analyzer.

Fantastic starter DSO

Fantastic DSO for people just getting started in electronics at the level that would require a DSO, or who only need a low-bandwidth 2-channel solution. Interface seems to be defaulted to Chinese on some units, easily fixable with menu system.

Seems to have been supplanted by the more modern 4-channel DS1054Z.

DS1052E - a versatile tool!

This scope has been around for a long time and as such many people have had to chance to create add-ons which provide features that were not intended by the manufacture. First, although this is a 50MHz scope, there are field updates that double the bandwidth to 100MHz. But, I actually bought this scope because someone wrote a program to take the FFT output, saved to a file, to produce a spectrum analyzer capable of 500MHz bandwidth. The memory depth can be set to 1M sample depth - so nice to be able to expand a waveform and see details that are easy to miss otherwise. Then there are the programmable digital filters on the inputs and all the other math features designed into this instrument that make it a really great lab tool. Everyone should have one or two at this price.

Rigol DS1052E Review

This is a review of the Rigol DS1052E oscilloscope.
The first scope I ordered was defective. The people at Rigol were very helpful in finding the problem and responded quickly. TEquipment shipped me a new scope and it works good.
This is a good scope. It performs exactly as specified and is one of the best values in this price range. The Rigol DS1054Z (costs $70 more) came out a week after I ordered the 1052, but I don't need the extra features of the DS1054Z, the bigger screen would be nice though. If all you need is a basic scope, get the Rigol 1052E. It is highly recommended by many qualified people.

Rigol DS1052E

I have been enjoying my Rigol DS1052E for a week now. Even though i may never use all of the abilities of this unit, I find it challenging to learn them. Setup is simple, the unit performs flawlessly and it's menus are easy to learn. As a plus, Tequipment delivered it faster than my expectations - with a free gift!

Great scope at a great price, even if it is old

Yes, this scope is a bit old at this point, but for the price point, especially with the discounts tequipment.net give for eevblog members!

I've since upgraded to a DS2000 series scope, but honestly, I kind of miss the simplicity of the DS1000 scope. It was quick to power up, quick to get a trace, quick to manipulate the trace, etc. I'd HIGHLY recommend buying one if you're looking for a scope at a price point.

Hobbyist scope

The go-to hobbyist scope. I didn't think the UI was great but it could get the job done. If you can't spend more then $400 this would be OK, but I'd look at some of the other Chinese scopes (atten, etc) with more features.

If you can spend a little more the Rigol DS2072A (have this at home) and Rigol DS1104Z are much much better.

Good beginner scope

If you can't afford to spend more than $400, then this is a great scope for the beginner. The scope is a bit dated/obsolete now, though, with the introduction of the DS1074Z for only ~$250 more.
