Tektronix unveils its next generation 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope, which claims to deliver new levels of enhanced portability, for field & remote work, allied to benchtop performance.

T&M firm, Tektronix has unveiled its 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO), reimagining what is possible in test & measurement. The new 2 Series MSO can go seamlessly from the bench to the field and back, enabling workflows previously unimagined on a scope. It is the first portable oscilloscope to offer benchtop performance and the award-winning Tektronix user interface. Weighing less than 1.8kgs and 38mm thin, the 2 Series MSO can fit into a small backpack, delivering unmatched performance and portability.

With the 2 Series MSO, engineers can achieve things not possible on previous oscilloscopes. The easy to use 10.1” touchscreen display makes working on the go easier and faster. The built-in capabilities of the optional Arbitrary Function Generator (AFG), pattern generator, voltmeter and frequency counter mean users have versatility built into one instrument – increasing what they can do while reducing the number of instruments to carry or purchase. With up to eight hours of battery power engineers will discover a new level of freedom on the job.

This breakthrough product was a direct result of our proven Growth Accelerator innovation process and continued focus on our customers,” said Tami Newcombe, Tektronix President. “Our team worked closely with engineers to deeply understand their unique needs. We cannot wait to see how the 2 Series MSO improves the way our customers work.

Intuitive & easy-to-use

The 2 Series MSO joins the strong line-up of other Tektronix oscilloscopes with the award-winning user experience also found on the 3, 4, 5, and 6 Series oscilloscopes. This makes it easier for engineers to work effortlessly across these Tektronix products, while the easy-to-use experience means engineers can do more in less time. With the feel of a mobile device, debugging is faster and more intuitive. The coloured LED ring lights around the knobs indicate active sources or parameters to adjust or to indicate status.

Portability & performance

With a variety of integrated options, the 2 Series MSO is equipped for advanced debugging in a single instrument, including:

•    Bandwidths from 70 MHz-500 MHz

•    Two or four analogue channel inputs

•    16 digital channels (available with future software release)

•    2.5 GS/s sample rate

•    Optional 50 MHz Arbitrary Function Generator

•    Built-in pattern generator, voltmeter & frequency counter (features coming soon)

•    Optional battery provides up to eight hours of power

Unlocks remote work & team collaboration

Natively integrated software tools allow engineers to collaborate, troubleshoot and debug designs across time zones. The 2 Series MSO includes TekDrive, a test & measurement data workspace in the cloud where engineers can upload, store, organise and share any file from a connected device. Users can also perform analysis on a waveform and save it back to the cloud for immediate viewing and feedback from peers.

Total Product Protection service

The 2 Series MSO is designed for easy set up and immediate use. To extend and enhance the level of service, Tektronix includes options to extend the warranty from one to three or five years. To provide 2 Series MSO owners protection in the event of accidental damage, Tektronix is offering an introductory promotional price on a Total Product Protection service plan when purchased with the oscilloscope. Purchase the new, light and portable oscilloscope and know it’s protected wherever you go. For more information on the Total Product Protection service plan, visit
