Q & A

Q:  How many channels does the Rigol DS1102E have?  What is its bandwidth?
A:  The Rigol DS1102E is a two channel, 100MHz oscilloscope.

Q:  What is the difference between the Rigol DS1052E and the Rigol DS1102E?
A:  The Rigol 1102E has a 100 MHz bandwidth and the 1052E has a 50MHz bandwidth.

Q:  Does the Rigol DS1102E include test probes, or do I have to buy them separately?
A:  This model comes with two RP2200 probes.  You do not need to buy them separately.

Q: Can the DS1102E use the x and y axis, rather than the sweep?
A: Yes. The DS1102E has both an X/Y mode and a sweep mode.

Q: Can the DS1102E simultaneously display both the time based waveform and the associated FFT with a relatively fast update time?
A: The DS1102E can show the line trace waveform and the FFT at the same time. The FFT has a 600 point sample size and the update rate of the scope is 400Hz.

Q: Does the Rigol DS1102E offer a sweep mode?
A: Yes, the DS1102E does offer a sweep mode. This will determine how the scope behaves in the event that the trigger event is absent. The DS1102E allows for three sweep modes: single, auto, and normal.

Q: What trigger modes are available on the DS1102E ?
A: The DS1102E has 5 trigger modes: Edge, Pulse, Slope, Video, and Alternate.

Q: The Measure button is not illuminating when I press it. Is this normal? 
A: The Measure button on the DS1000E/D series of scopes only illuminate when you have an active measurement. This operation helps indicate that the scope has active measurements when the user is a distance away from the scope.

Q: What is alternate trigger mode? Whats it used for?
A: Alternate trigger mode allows you to view waveforms of substantially different frequencies on channel 1 and channel 2.  When in this mode, the time base is independent of the channel you are current set too. So when set to channel 1, you can change the normal settings along with the time base. Lets say in this case the time base is set to 1 uSec / div. Then on channel 2 you can of course set the usual settings along with a DIFFERENT time base for that channel. So in this case lets say you have the time base set to 100 uSec. So in this case you would be able to view a 1 MHZ signal on channel 1 and a 100 KHz signal on channel 2. Both waveforms viewable and stable.  There is a you tube video that demonstrates this here :

What's Not to Like About This 'Scope?

First off this is my first digital 'scope, have been using a basic analog scope for decades for hobbyist and ham use. It was purchased on the basis of reviews by users on a number of on-line sites.

Amazed at the fact that these scopes now do all the calculating for you. Frequency counter for this scope is very accurate, even if you go above 100 MHz to a certain extent. Very small footprint (my analog was huge), light weight, easily transported. Fan noise was not an issue; as a matter of fact if this was not commented on in previous on-line posts I would not have noticed. Good quality from it's appearance - buttons, knobs, pots switches all close tolerance and tight with not a hint of flimsiness. Nice big top mounted handle.

The DVD that comes with the unit is excellent as a tutorial. The hard copy manual is brief but hey, who prints things anymore, you get lots more info on a disk and it saves on printing costs.

Am absolutely satisfied with my purchase.

Radio Tech./ Amateur Radio

Comparing the price to what you get for your money this is a no brainer. Display is sharp and this thing has so many features I don't know where to begin. Many of the features are located in a menu driven format. You push a button and scroll down to what you want to adjust. The instrument was received VERY WELL protected and was double boxed! My only beef is why Rigol chose to put the AC line cord on the side of the instrument. It should be on the rear. Other that that, the DS1102E will give me some capabilities that my old Tektronix was lacking PLUS easy portability with the carrying handle on the top. TE's shipping was lightning fast as well. All in all I'm happy.

Great Scope at a Great price!

Work with a large variety of electronic equipment and use an o'scope almost everyday. Very impressed by this scope. Easy to use - measures and stores complex wave shapes for future comparison. Overall you can't beat this o'scope for the price! You won't be disappointed.

Second one

I had one previously purchased a couple years ago. It was OK and did what specs said. The factory probes were not. Their frequency response was poor.
Replaced them with 200 MHz probes. This newer version had much improved probe response. Its frequency counter accuracy was better too. I would like to have access to the settings to tweak the frequency counter accuracy. To have a scope with this capability at such a price is wonderful.

Excellent hobbyist oscilloscope

Easy to use, enough functions to address a wide range of uses, and more than enough bandwidth for my purposes.

I like the compact size and that menus clear away giving you the whole screen for the waveform.

It's helped me analyze filters, check amplifiers, and track down power supply noise with ease.

Great for the price

It's tough to beat a high end scope, but for the price, this scope does a lot of great things. I do mostly contract jobs with microcontrollers and digital circuitry ranging from 1MHz to 50MHz as well as communication protocols at various slower baud rates. For the protocols, I use a USB logic analyzer, but this scope has been very useful watching other signals (like power rails) simultaneously for noise issues.

If I could get a Tektronix for the same price, I would get it instead, but the functionality packed in this scope combined with the much lower price makes it a good choice for me.


Cons:
The update rate on the screen is a bit slow, giving a less than fluid waveform even at reasonable time scales. This also causes difficulty with the trigger level, but it is not horrible.


Pros:
Price.
Good math functions including FFT.
Good cursor and measurement functions.
user friendly menus.
Free software to interact with the scope and even show the current waveform on a PC via USB (CD included but also need to download a software package from Rigol's website that contains the necessary NI driver).
Probes are mechanically sound - good spring tension and such.
Digital filters available (low pass, high pass, and I think band pass at least) on each channel.
Overall a good scope for most users.

Excellent price for an excellent scopt.

I bought this scope to replace my 20 year old scope. Scopes have come a LONG way in 20 years. This scope is intelligent and makes measurement a no-brainer.

I received the Scope promptly. Unfortunately it did not work well. Customer service got me in contact with RIGOL and they determined the Scope should be sent in for repair. I received a new Scope very quickly and it works fine. A big thanks to Jennifer for helping out.

The quick start guide got me up and running quickly. I like the "Auto" button. Centers everything up for a good starting point.

Great prices, Fast delivery, and very professional

Initially I ordered the 1052E for my home lab. TEquipment had run out of those, and they instead delivered the 1102E (basically the same scope). The price was 10% below that of any other dealer selling the 1052E in the western hemisphere, and I received the scope within a couple of days of ordering. The packaging was great - as it should be with test equipment, and I am a very satisfied customer. If you are looking for Rigol gear in the US, I can only recommend TEquipment.

Rigol DS1102E

Great value for the price. Also light-weight and the auto functions work great for a snapshot of the signal.

There is a learning curve over a conventional analog scope due to the menu'ing system and general function of this newer style of equipment.

Definitely a positive change from even a twenty pound oldie...

My original order was for a 50mhz model and was out of stock rather than hold up my order or cancel it Tequipment.net upgraded my order to the 100mhz version of the same scope at the price of the 50mhz and ship it immediately. It arrived quickly and I was very pleased with the Rigol DS1002E as well as the quality of service at tequipment.net. I would highly recommend them to anyone for fast reliable honest service. This was not my first order from them and will not be my last.

DS1102E (E for Excellent Value)

I needed a scope for a new University repair shop. Most of the low end "professional" oscilloscopes start at 1150$ for less memory depth then the 1102E. That pricing would have destroyed one third of my instrument budget. 1102E Coming in at 1/3rd the price with decent performance was a plus. While the screen is small, for a basic service lab this unit is a winner.

Easy to use, and the low cost allowed me to buy a high precision DMM for calibration work.

A price/performance standout

Having worked exclusively with "high end" scopes throughout my career, I was skeptical that the quality / durability would be sufficient (old adage: "you get what you pay for"). I'm now a believer that "I got more than I paid for" (or, more accurately, "I've been overpaying in the past"). This scope is a positive outlier on the price/performance curve.

I needed another scope for our test bench but didn't want to spend too much money on it since it's not a piece of test equipment we use every day. The dual channel Rigol looked like it would be just what we needed and the price is great! I must admit for the price I wasn't expecting excellent performance, was I wrong! This scope is performing very well and has become our go-to for just about every test!! Will be buying more Rigol equipment soon!

Lives up to its reputation

I've had my eye on this oscilloscope for a couple of years and finally decided to buy it. It's my first digital scope and I'm blown away at how easy it is to get measurements of all kinds. Rise & fall time, frequency, voltage, VPP, delay and phase difference between two signals, and all other sorts of measurements are a breeze. Just a push of a couple of buttons and you've got all kinds of info (automatically measured) about your signal!

The only downside... this scope was manufactured in China and the owner's manual isn't translated into English as good as it could have been. However, that's a minor concern as the manual is good enough.

This is a great scope at a great price.

Great Oscilloscope for the price

Although this is cheap, it works quite well for most applications. I've used it for about 2 weeks now almost everyday without fail or issues.

If you need just a single oscilloscope or many and do not have a large budget these work out quite well.

Highly recommended for people who are just getting started using oscilloscopes and electronics. It's a great learning oscilloscope.

Rigol DS1102E

I tried out all the advertised features of the Rigol DS1102E, and it performed them well and without any trouble. This is an excellent digital scope at a very attractive price. The less positive aspects of the buy were the flimsy probes supplied and the fact that I didn't get the CD with the auxiliary program and the manuals, or a warrantee. I was able to get the manuals on the net and then was able to thoroughly check out the scope. Still waiting for the CD and warrantee. I would have given the scope 5 stars had it arrived with the CD and warrantee.

I am new to electronics and have purchased this oscilloscope along with three other Rigol instruments. I do have a steep learning curve trying to learn all the instruments along with basic electronics. I am currently building a radio kit and I am actively using and learning the oscilloscope, the function generator and multimeter to do the tests and find my faults. The instruments really appear to be well made, they are packaged well, and have great documentation. The full manual is on the included CD. I am finding learning the controls not as daunting as I first thought so even for novices I think you will like this scope.

A good economy oscilloscope. Has many nice features, and the 100 Mhz analog bandwidth is great. The FFT is of minimal use, do not think you are getting a spec analyzer in the deal... I have used Agilent, and Tek scopes, my main scope is a 7623A quad trace, delaying sweep, and I'll be holding on to that.. For hobbyist and basic troubleshooting a nice portable product.

First personal oscilloscope

This is my first personal oscilloscope, and so far I've been very happy with it. I used an analog scope in my undergrad, and I always thought I'd want to get the same one when I got my own scope. But when I went to purchase this digital scope, I found out that my school had upgraded after I left and replaced all their equipment with these! While the digital does lead to slightly less resolution than I would get from the analog scope, I'm still very happy with this purchase. The automatic measuring tools are very helpful, and the simple things like including different markers for the leads so you can tell the two channels apart is something I didn't expect but am very pleased with. After having this scope for over a month, I'm still glad I bought it and would purchase the same one again if I had the chance.

Great oscilloscope. I have had it 5 days now and needed to check out an oscillator the other night to make sure it was working ... wow! Nice waveform with very little manipulating of the controls and BONUS ... the frequency was right there at the bottom of the screen. I guess I have not even realized what I have been missing using my old CRT scope ... happy that I have now upgraded. I am not an engineer only a hobbyist and I think it is a great product.

RIGOL DS1102E comparison - analog Oscilloscope

RIGOL DS1102E 2 Channel 100MHz 1G Sa/sec Oscilloscope V00.04.01
Review 02-08-2014

The first impression of the model DS1102E is that it is well made, having a very clean feel with decent hardware. The overall style is attractive. The cooling fan is audible to a point of slight distraction, but this is not a deal breaker.

The main consideration for any oscilloscope is accuracy in delivering a faithful representation of signals measured, and the ability to trigger on any signal in a predictable manner within the bandwidth limits of the oscilloscope.

Test 1:

The RIGOL DS1102E Digital oscilloscope was evaluated for performance in the X-Y mode. For comparison, a Hameg HM203-6 20MHz analog oscilloscope was used in the identical mode.

A stable square wave reference is converted to a linear ramp representing a reference musical instrument note frequency. In this example the frequency is C4 or "middle C" at 261.63 Hz.
The linear ramp will sweep the trace in the "X" input at a fixed rate. If the measured analog waveform, "Y input" or note "C4" in this case is pitch locked, it will not translate to the right or left. For example: if a note is sharp it will translate or move to the left.

It is helpful for the oscilloscope to have the ability to fine tune or "uncal" the volts/div range for X and Y in this mode of operation, and also the X position adjustment is critical for a centering of the waveform on the screen. This is to achieve a decent viewable image.

Y axis:
This is the real time measured signal. V-position and volts/div will set the vertical position and the height respectfully of the measured waveform.

X-axis:
The sweep width across the scopes screen is dependent on the volts/div setting and a fine adjust or "uncal" is necessary to fill the screen completely. There should be no dead or wasted space in the horizontal signal seen on the oscilloscope trace.

X-position:
This adjustment is critical in centering the horizontal signal after the X-axis is adjusted.

The Hameg provided a very clean and trustworthy image due to the inherent adjustments of the oscilloscope.

The RIGOL DS1102E did not allow for the adjustments as stated above. There is no "uncal" position for the X or Y axis. Even with the finest increments available selected, the waveform remained truncated on the screen. The image was a coarse representation of the true analog counterpart. Every attempt was made to duplicate the results of the 20MHz analog scope with results that were unstable and unpredictable from the RIGOL DS1102E.
The sampling rate was toggled between Sa=500.0Ksa/sec and 50.0Msa/sec. The highest sampling rate produced an unintelligible signal with random sampling points. The digital representation on the RIGOL DS1102E has undefined samples at times defining impossible data values.

Test 2:
The RIGOL DS1102E was tested for trigger accuracy. The oscilloscope has issues with zero crossings and locking into the basic waveform of a bassoon reed.
(261.63 Hz)
The threshold must be set to capture the highest peak for this scope to lock into the analog waveform. All possible trigger combinations were tested with similar results.
The trigger was tested with the linear ramp and it performed perfectly at different thresholds. The trigger circuitry should be redesigned for stability in complex waveforms.

The HAMEG locked into the same bassoon reed waveform at any position of the trigger threshold translating it on the X-axis predictably.

Test 3:
RIGOL DS1102E
Bandwidth limit was tested to try and clean up the waveform representation. It had no effect, as the digital representation was yarn like or fuzzy misrepresenting the real analog counterpart. HF rejection had no effect on the visual interpretation of the RIGOL DS1102E.

The Digital Filter was tested with a ramp of 261.63 Hz. The type was Low Pass, and the cutoff frequency was set to 20KHz. At a factor or 76 times the fundamental frequency there was significant ringing on the linear ramp. Overshoot occurred at 45KHz (Lo Pass cutoff), and increased significantly down to 20KHz. The intent of the Digital filter was to clean up the yarn like appearance of these waveforms.
As results caused overshoot and ringing, the filter was disabled.

Conclusion:
Beautifully made and with a nice user interface the RIGOL DS1102E showed room for improvement in the above tests when compared to a 20MHz oscilloscope with technology that preceded it by 20 years.

The RIGOL DS1102E is a lobbyist oscilloscope at best.

A storage oscilloscope may be the best bet for those who would like to capture waveforms and make measurements by way of cursors.

For accuracy in waveform traces, an analog oscilloscope remains to be the best bet.

Great O'scope

I purchased this to replace an aging scope that has served me well for many years, but recently had proven to be too bulky and lacking in features. The DS1102E has proven to be a great scope with a spectrum analyzer thrown in to boot. The storage feature allows me to analyze timing of 1 shot events. This product has proven to be both reliable and a good value.

Nice first scope

Very nice for hobby work, was able to get running quickly with only basic knowledge of how to use. Math functions on inputs are comprehensive, screenshot to usb flash drive feature is useful.

A storage Oscilloscope at very reasonable price

I bought this scope for occasional use for my HAM radio home brew activity. Some of the projects a of digital nature and the DS1102E is far beyond expectations. A very helpful feature is the digital storage. If you want to measure rise times, this is the way to go. Screen not big enough, store it on a stick and view at your computer.I have used it so far for many measurement tasks, that include but are not limited to, for example to check an Oxygen Sensor. I am quite impressed with the device, you can't beat the price. Sure there are other more expensive scopes, but why buy an American name that is basically made in China too.
I love this OScope and recommend it to anyone that needs to do time or frequency measurements.
Best of all, it is light weight and can be taken anywhere.

Nice value

This is a very nice Oscilloscope for the price!

The speed and sample rate is decent, as is the display.

The included PC software isn't the greatest, but it is certainly better than not including software at all!

Great Beginner Scope

I did a lot of research before buying this scope. After reading countless forum posts and YouTube videos I finally decided to buy the Rigol DS1102E. Since I put the scope on my workbench I have really been pleased. I would recommend this scope to anyone.

excellent Scope

From the moment I ordered the scope I was pleased I ordered a 50mhz and Tequipment did not have it in stock rather than cancel my order or delay it for a very long time they replaced the 50mhz with the 100 for the same price and shipped it then sent me a email stating the upgrade at no cost. It arrived very quickly and am very pleased with the performance and quality. I would recommend Rigol or Tequipment to anyone.

Great value, great scope

My first oscilloscope was a used Heathkit when I was 14(I'm now 65).

I saw a short article praising the DS1102E in Monitoring Times magazine and a subsequent review in QST.

I haven't owned a scope for many years and I couldn't believe how reasonable it was. More importantly what a quality instrument. I am an amateur radio operator and design and build much of my equipment. I have used it to run tests on all my commercial gear and everything I have built.

The DS1102E is a bargain and a quality instrument, I find it far preferable to the Tecktronix I have been borrowing and at a much lower cost. if I could I would give it a TEN.

The shipping was fast and well protected . Great job, thanks.

Great entry level oscilloscope

Marvelous entry level oscilloscope with a small but bright and sharp color screen and an intuitive, well laid interface. Great overall construction, nice push buttons and knobs. It has a fan that produces some noise but it's not too disturbing. This o-scope has more than I need for my electronics enthusiast work!

Rigol DS1102E 100MHz Digital Oscilloscope

This is my first oscilloscope. So far, it is a blast to use. I've tested a simple audio circuit with it and am able to see the results very clearly. The menu system is very easy to navigate. I look forward to using it for many years to come.

Great Oscilloscope

Purchased this scope for ham radio and hobby work. I am very satisfied. Being used to traditional Tek scopes with the attenuation and time scale factors printed on the knobs, it took a little getting used to; but not much. Most of the time the "Auto" function gets me into the ball park. I also really like the built in spectrum analyzer, and the measurement functions that compute Vpp, Vrms, etc. This scope is a great value.

Excellent Entry Level Oscilloscope

I am a Firmware Engineer and wanted a something at home that I can use for my hobby projects. This oscilloscope for the price exceeded all the expectations.

Pros:
1. 100MHZ for price is just unbelievable.
2. Lots of features that are hard to find in USB scopes for same price range
3. Connect to PC for capturing images

Cons:
1. Fan is loud(-half star)
2. Probes can be better(-half star)

Amazing value

Can't believe what you get for the price with this unit. Really happy with it. Small and easy to operate. The build quality seems right up there. Definitely not a cheap Chinese job.

I would have given it 5 stars, but it has a fan that's pretty loud. I work in a quiet environment and it seems loud fans are a trend anymore in test equipment, hate fans.

To all you makers out there, there are quiet fans available, quit using the loud ones. I've had to change out the fan on a few test instruments and it looks like I'll have to do the same thing on this one at some point.

Great value

We have been using this oscilloscope in a testing environment for a few weeks and have been very satisfied with its feature-set at the given price point. It is also relatively compact, making it a good option if there are space constraints.

Decent scope for the price

At this price it isn't going to be a tek... but it certainly performs well enough if you know what you're looking for. For the price, there's no question why it's a best-seller. For me, it's a keeper.
