In late 2017, we covered Pokit — a tiny oscilloscope, multimeter and logger that is small enough to fit in your pocket, even acting as a key fob! As interesting as that device was (and is), looking at the specs, you might note that there are a few compromises compared to your heftier professional scope or meter. Now, however, pokitMeter has announced a version called the Pokit PRO with enhanced functionality.
While the Pokit PRO is significantly larger than the original, with a length of 152mm, this appears to make it much more ergonomic as well. The body acts as one probe, while the second is attached to the body with a wire so you can manipulate it as needed. The unit also boasts a working voltage range of up to 300VRMS, and can measure current at up to 5A.
Other neat features include an integrated torch (flashlight) and an integrated buzzer for use in continuity mode. The Pokit PRO can act as a digital storage oscilloscope (DSO), and one can even connect up to four devices simultaneously for multichannel usage. Sampling speed is improved at 1M samples per second — versus a 200k/s on the earlier version. Sampling resolution is 12-bits, which is lower than the original’s 14-bit resolution, but this seems like a reasonable tradeoff.
The Pokit PRO is now available on Kickstarter at an early bird price of $78, although bundles and starter kits are also available.
