DSO Nano v3 oscilloscope

by AudieR on Thu Apr 14, 2016 9:32 am

I want to test out a device that puts out about4.5 v DC with a signal length of 1.5ms. at 1 hz.
Will this give me a Square/minus wave?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'minus', but I'll try to answer the question I think you're asking:

The Nano V3 can handle signals up to 100 KHz. This means pulses as short as 0.01 ms should be visible in the display. A signal 1.5 ms long should be easy to see. Without more information about the device or signal you're measuring, I can't tell you if you'll see a square wave, a pulse, or something else. If the signal has details smaller than 10 us (0.01 ms), you may not be able to see those, and certainly won't be able to reliably measure them, but you should easily see the general shape of the signal. Often that is enough, but if not you'll need a faster oscilloscope.

Hope this helps.
