A couple of years ago, regular readers may recall I took a look at the Mustool MT8206 2-in-1 Multimeter and Oscilloscope. Well, things change and now there is the improved MT8208 2-in-1 Multimeter and Oscilloscope – how’s that for a dynamic change of name 🙂
They have of course improved the design, better resolution (as you can see) and it is pretty too. Even more regular users will know that I have more multimeters than I know what to do with – but hey – I like this. Fits in the hand, nice digits and for simple jobs, saves me digging out the oscilloscope, normal AA batteries. solid feel. If anyone has the original MT8206 – they’ve increased the waveform measurement bandwidth from 20Khz to 1Mhz – a worthwhile improvement – along with an increased sampling rate which has gone up from 200Khz to 2.5Mhz. On the link I give below is a PDF copy of the user’s manual in English along with details and pricing.
I’m going to save myself a lot of typing here by showing you pictures of the box. For a low-cost meter this really does look nice – interested parties as always can head off to the Banggood site for pricing etc.
Banggood refer to this device as the MUSTOOL MT8208 HD Intelligent Graphical Digital Oscilloscope. The link will of course give a lot more detail than I’m including here – suffice it to say I liked the original MT8206 and I like this new model even more – ideal for day-to-day use and of course by the nature of the display it does not need the usual backlight. It works great in the dark and is not at all bad in sunlight.
And get this… the 34-page manual is all in perfectly readable English (though beginners might well ask what a “Millifa” is – no jokes about terrorism please). See the sample images here.
