Hi there! I'm trying to export data from my oscilloscope but I don't see any USB port.
The reason why I want so is to study the spectrum of an EMG signal recorded from my biceps and see which frequencies appear on my signal so I can get rid of all the noise.
Does anyone know any other way or maybe if they have a built-in FFT (not that I've seen)?

Any help will be highly appreciated. Thank you very much

Thanks for answering. the FFT can be performed just by pressing the math menu bottom. As for transferring the data out of the oscilloscope I might be having some trouble still.

For ANY scope:

1. Get an image of the screen with a camera. Or, print and scan.
2. Use an on-line plotting tool to get a csv file of the trace.
3. Use a spreadsheet or analysis program such as SciLab to obtain the FFT.

The site I used to convert a graph is WebPlotDigitizer (it’s free). Be sure to use the option to rearrange file entries in order. Of course, there may be better options for you with this tool. I used csv output.
