RS Components stocks Tektronix’ general purpose oscilloscope
Distributor RS Components has added Tektronix’s next-generation digital storage oscilloscope to its test and measurement portfolio. The TBS2000 targets a range of uses including troubleshooting, as well as prototyping, debugging and design validation of new products. It can also be used in educational environments.
It features the longest record length and largest display in its class, claims the company, which provides for faster signal evaluation and troubleshooting.
Models available offer 70 or 100MHz bandwidth or with two or four channels. There is a nine inch WVGA display, which can display 15 horizontal (time) divisions that allow users to view 50 per cent more signal than any other scope in its category. A 20Mpoint record length with single-knob pan and zoom allows users to capture long-time-duration signals and eases navigation to help users locate important details.
Other key features include support for the Tektronix VPI probe interface, the first time this has been available for a low-cost Tektronix oscilloscope, which allows users to use a wide range of Tektronix active probes. The new ‘Help Everywhere’ context-sensitive configurable help utility provides on-screen tips for important settings. The Wi-Fi dongle support enables engineers to take advantage of the instrument’s LXI-compliant interface to control the oscilloscope remotely.
