MeterScope Competition Entry: RS Pro HS608

RS Components unboxed the new RS Pro HS608 MeterScope. Basically, it is a multimeter and oscilloscope all-in-one. Quite handy if you don't have enough space on your bench or if you are working in the field doing maintenance work.

It comes in a rugged case complete with accessories e.g. a variety of probes, clamps, etc. One unique feature is that you don't need to open up the case to change the batteries, you just need to plug in the charger.

Editor's Note: Great job engineer-labs, you mentioned our presenters' names correctly* and are in the draw to win yourself a Meterscope HS608 courtesy of RS Pro"

What I'm particularly impressed about is that it is rated: IP67. This means it is 100% protected against solid objects like dust and sand, and it has been tested to work for at least 30 minutes while under 15cm to 1m of water. Very handy when testing in wet and rugged environments.

This would make a great addition to my workbench primarily because I don't have enough space as you can see. Moreover, I frequently do testing outside (for IoT projects) and I don't have to worry about getting the MeterScope wet.

Kudos to the team for the unboxing videos.
