Was this review helpful to you? My first post to this group so if I'm in the wrong place please point me gently in the right direction. The key generated when I used the Google Chrome browser didn't unlock the upgrades. You will see three input boxes. Use the Intensity knob to scroll around and choose the Letters and Numbers of the Software Upgrade Key. The is a very popular, entry level 4-channel Digital Storage Oscilloscope. A dedicated front-panel key enables easy printing to PictBridge compatible printers. Once all of the key has been entered, press the Apply button.

How to update and unlock/hack the Rigol DS1054Z (in under 2 minutes)

Without the programming connector, the piece of prototyping board is quite small, here is the stripped down schematics diagram: For the code, see the project page. There is no way to enter the key as one cannot add a space in this process. In the box labeled Options, enter the 4-Letter option of your choosing. Now, Chris used a software hack to get the functionality, but by cutting and remapping the traces coming from the chip that is, a hardware hack you could achieve the same outcome, at least in terms of getting the higher bandwidth. Well, there isn't much external software in the first place, and what there is like EasyScope from Siglent usually follows the same principle - updates only if there are major bugs. As background, I mostly do digital stuff and a lot of microcontroller based projects. I downloaded the binaries and used those rather than the web interface paranoid.

Rigol DS1054Z fan update with temperature dependent speed control

Think telectronic did a vendor update before shipping, I saw one other person who has this. If you have not yet upgraded, the screen should look like the one displayed here. I then simply wrapped the controller board with electrical tape, keeping the chip free, and attached it to power supply shielding with couple of cable ties. I know everyone hacks the Rigol, but I like to stay legal even if this is my hobby and not my work. The first 2 key generating attempts failed to upgrade the 1054Z however the third worked perfectly.

How To Get 50 More Zed From Your Rigol DS1054Z

Thanks to all who post and share, love you guys…. Sure, but that doesn't change the fact that both Rigol and Siglent are still B-brands, even though as you say and I also already stated in my last posting that the build quality is pretty good. Once done, you will have a 100mhz oscilloscope. The 52e appears to have a nice digital filter feature. I finally got around and the courage to try this hack…worked like a charm.

1000Z Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes

The scope had all the additional features preloaded, no codes to enter. That worked to unlock the upgrades! The number of scopes sold due to hackability is small-fry. Eventually one of them will go all in for market share and unlock everything. That is how the end result looks:. They got their scope design knowledge from it's cooperation with Agilent which has since ceased. Anyway, great service from the distributor Telonic which dispatched the scope as advertised.

Personally I would not want to be responsible for all the backlash this would cause. Downloaded the ultra scope software to try as well. I'm sure Siglent will fix most of the remaining bugs, but I would not expect many new versions of external software or drivers which are often written once and then abandoned , but then none of the programs are particularly good or well designed anyways. The smartest people I know, to a one of them, have desks which are their own security systems by virtue of the sheer chaos atop, beside, and below them. Since all of these options are just software upgrades using a generated key, someone has already hacked the Rigol's installation. And it seems from my experience that some fixes aren't listed in the changelogs and some things that are listed don't apply to my scope. This goes away after 2 seconds but is still viewable on another part of the screen.

I may still be missing something but I'm not going to fret about it. Too many new features to learn. And once the manufacturer considers the firmware mature enough then development will stop, unless a new showstopper bug appears. Copy your oscilloscope's serial number. Don´t believe that Rigol didn´t get their share.

That is why I decided to do the whole thing - first replace the fan with a quieter one, and then hook it up to the scope board through my. Has anyone verified that license codes generated at are valid for this firmware version. You can visit the following website in order to generate your own software upgrade key. Rigol did not use proper starting values, making the keys very weak. I have just been able to successfully enter the code by direct entry on the scope so the codes are good for this firmware version! Also, I've thought about used scopes, anything comparable to the siglent out there you would recommend? To lock in a letter or number, press down on the intensity knob.
