When my uScopeMXII is not in use, should I power it off or is is safe to leave it on all the time?
In most cases, it is perfectly safe to leave the uScopeMXII powered on all the time.
However, if your power source is subject to brownouts or is otherwise unstable (power switches on and off several times) you should leave the uScopeMXII powered off when not in use.
If you are able to use power from a UPS or other filtered, battery-backed power source, you may safely leave the uScopeMXII powered on full-time.
