Farnell element14 introduces new range from Rohde and Schwarz
Distributor, Farnell element14 has introduced a new range of value test and measurement products from Rohde and Schwarz. Products include models from Hameg Instruments, which it recently integrated into its Test and Measurement Division, and which will be sold under the Rohde and Schwarz brand.
The range includes the R&S RTB2000 oscilloscope. It has a 10-inch touchscreen display and a 10-bit ADC which is claimed to give the user the finest resolution in the market. The 10Msample memory means it can be in-use 100 times longer than traditional oscilloscopes, says the company.
There is also the R&S FPC1000 bench spectrum analyser, a new entry spectrum analyser which is frequency-upgradeable without compromising RF performance, says Rohde and Schwarz. There is 2.6 times more display resolution than alternatives available in the market, and high measurement resolution down to 1.0Hz bandwidth. Another feature is the ease of virtual control with the built-in Wi-Fi module (Android/IOS app).
Another member is the R&S Spectrum Rider FPH. This versatile, lightweight, hand-held instrument is available with frequencies ranging from 5.0kHz to 4.0GHz. It features long battery life, capacitive touchscreen and a keypad with a backlight.
The R&S FSC spectrum analyser is also offered. This compact, cost-efficient analyser covers a range of applications from simple development tasks to production, or can be used for training RF professionals.
Finally, there is the R&S SMC100A RF and microwave signal generator. This covers the frequency range from 9.0kHz to 1.1GHz or 3.2GHz. Output power is above +17dBm and functions, such as AM/FM/pulse modulation, are already integrated.
James McGregor, global head Test, Tools and Production Supplies at Premier Farnell said: “We have built a strong relationship with Rohde and Schwarz and this new range of value instruments complements our existing test and measurement offering. As the Development Distributor, Premier Farnell offers one of the industry’s broadest ranges of test and measurement equipment and the introduction of this new value range is ideal for small start-ups, engineers for whom price is a factor and education organisations.
The distributor also provides calibration services to ensure the accuracy of equipment, covering pre-calibration of electronic, physical and dimensional test and measurement equipment and products.
