mAs Measurement Calculates Current Over Time

Using the cursors, you can now measure directly the amount of radiation produced by X-ray systems, or the total amount of charge applied to a system.


Smart Averaging

Smart averaging gives the averaged waveform over successive acquisitions, reducing noise in the displayed waveform. Thanks to smart averaging, you can now also see an incidental curve of a different waveshape with no effect on the averaged curve! This allows you to see the averaged curve of a sequence of video lines, for example, while still seeing the incidental flyback line flash by! Thanks to smart averaging, the oscilloscope gives an immediate response when the signal makes large changes, for instance when probing around different test points, while retaining the benefits associated with averaging!

Extended Offset

Vertical offset is now extended to a maximum of 16 divisions, allowing vertical zoom-in for study of small details of the signal.

Selectable Persistence

Persistence mode with selectable decay time helps to find anomalies in the waveshape and optimizes the display for color information when working with composite color video. Can be used together with dots only mode, best for modulated signals, or with dot join mode for more continuous and stable waveshapes.

Extended Video Triggering

Next to its triggering capability for standard, interlaced TV signals, the instrument now triggers on high-resolution, non-interlaced video systems. The ScopeMeter 190 will trigger on all lines (non-selective), or can select an individual video line from systems with up to 2800 lines per frame.

Speed, Performance and Analysis Power for Medical Applications
Whether you are performing routine maintenance and calibration, or troubleshooting te hardest to solve problems like intermittent failures or sources of unwanted noise, the Fluke 196C Color Medical Scopemeter is a high-performance oscilloscopes for the most demanding applications when servicing medical imaging equipment and video systems. The Fluke 196C Color Medical Scopemeter offers measurement capabilities optimized for servicing medical equipment in the following modalities: X-ray, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound.

Display and acquisition
Channels displayed input A, input B, dual channel
Display modes smart averaging, normal averaging, selectable persistence, invert, replay

Smart averaging displays averaged curve; incidental waveforms that differ too much from the average curve are displayed but do not contribute to the averaged curve
Averaging factor selectable: 2x, 4x, 8x, 64x or off
Selectable persistance decay time short, medium, infinite or off; can be used with dots only display or with dot join mode
Trigger and delay - Video Triggering
Interlaced video NTSC, PAL, PALplus, SECAM. Selects field 1, field 2, lines or on user selected line from a frame
Non-interlaced video for line counts up to 2800 lines per frame and and video scan rates up to 65 kHz; triggers on fields, on lines or on user-selected line
Cursor measurements
Dual vertical lines time between cursors, voltage between markers, 1/T (in Hz), mVs, mAs
Horizontal zoom Up to 8x
Vertical zoom using position control (offset) and vertical sensitivity
Offset range
Max. offset for viewing positive-going signals 16 divisions for input sensitivity settings 550 mV/div (50500 mV/div. when using 10:1 probe or TA190-50R); 8 divisions for all other vertical sensitivity settings
Max sensitivity of Fluke 190CM 2mV/div (20mV/div. using attenuator)
Max. offset for viewing negative-going signals 8 divisions for all vertical sensitivity settings
