Digital storage oscilloscope offers competitive signal

22 August 2017

TBS2000 digital storage oscilloscope series from Tektronix

The digital storage oscilloscope series, TBS2000, captures and displays significantly more signal than competitive units due to its 15 horizontal and 10 vertical divisions – rather than the traditional 8 by 10 setup.

The series, introduced by RS Components and from Tektronix, also offers dedicated controls that provide quick access to important settings, which enable better and faster evaluation of designs. The range targets engineers, technicians and scientists in industrial, academic, and research and development environments. Applications include circuit debugging and testing in the manufacturing and radio broadcast equipment areas.

The series is designed for user-friendly operation and fast hands-on learning; it also comes with a 9-inch WVGA colour display that offers more room for measurement results and menu information. The product also enables enhanced signal analysis with new on-waveform cursor readouts and 32 automated measurements, each with informative tips to help choose the right option quickly, as well as an FFT function for thorough waveform analysis. The TBS2000 features a 20 million-point record length on all channels and a sampling rate of up to 1GS/s.

The instrument's TekVPI probe interface supports active, differential and current probes with automatic scaling and units, and works with traditional BNC connections, but also enables wide application coverage with the latest active voltage probes and current probes. Other features of the TBS2000 series include: USB2.0 ports on the front and rear panels for quick and easy data storage and connection to a PC; a Wi-Fi interface for wireless communications; and an LXI-compliant 10/100Base-T Ethernet port for remote control via a local area network.

The TBS2072 unit in the series is supplied with a 100MHz 10x passive probe (one per analogue channel), documentation CD with programmer manual, installation and safety manual, power cord, calibration certificate documenting traceability to National Metrology Institute(s) and ISO9001 quality system registration. Replacement probes are also available, as well as other compatible probes including high-voltage passive, differential voltage, high-voltage differential, active voltage and current probes. Other accessories include the TekVPI to TekProbe BNC adapter, soft transit case, and GPIB-to-USB adapter.
