Specifications of a PM97 ScopeMeter

Updated February 21, 2017

A scopemeter, or oscilloscope, is a type of electrical testing equipment, and it features a display screen where you can read your test data. You can also observe signal voltages with this device. The Fluke Corporation worked with Royal Philips Electronics to create the PM97 ScopeMeter. The Fluke Corporation started in 1948, and it is headquartered in Everett, Washington. Royal Philips Electronics started in 1891, and it is headquartered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. You can purchase products manufactured by both of these companies from authorised dealers.


The PM97 ScopeMeter features a liquid crystal display (LCD) screen, measuring 3.31 inches by 3.31 inches. The resolution for the screen is 240 by 240 pixels, and it comes with a menu that allows you to adjust the settings. The screen is backlit so that you can see it during the day. The device can record up to 512 samples per channel, and it has a maximum horizontal resolution of 25 samples per division per channel. It has a maximum vertical resolution of 8 bits. The maximum sample rate for the device is 25 million of samples per second (MS/s). It has up to 8 memories, and it has a memory depth of 512 words. The memory depth is how many samples that the scopemeter can hold at the same time.


This scopemeter comes with three sources: Channel A, Channel B and Megavolt (MV) input. The signal input is an isolated Bayonet Neill-Concelman (BNC) connector, and it has a common input of Black Safety Banana Jack, which is a section of the external trigger. The input coupling is alternating current (AC), direct current (DC) and ground (GND), and it has a maximum input voltage (Root square mean - RMS) of 300 Volts (V). The maximum constant for this machine is 356x, and it has a constant in roll of 10 x. The pulse-width for 100 per cent probability setting is 40 nanosecond (ns) and 10 ns for pulse-width for 25 per cent probability.


Timebase is a device that manages the sweep timing, and it is usually based on the seconds/division (s/div) control. The PM97 ScopeMeter has three timebase settings: roll, recurrent and single shot. It has a recurrent range of 5 s/div, a dual channel chopped of 5 s/div and a single shot of 5 s/div. The trigger has three input signal sources: Channel A, Channel B and the external trigger input, which is the Dual Safety Banana Jack connector. It has a maximum external trigger input of 300 V, and the trigger slope selection is either positive going or negative going. The trigger delay range is between -20 and 640 div.
