Standard LAN interface adds allure for budget conscious DSO buyers
The model 2190E bench digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) replaces the 2190D in the B&K Precision portfolio. Offering the same measurement capabilities as the 2190D, the 2190E continues to add more features to the entry-level 100MHz DSO. New upgrades include a higher resolution display and standard LAN interface at no additional cost.
The new DSO gives technical schools and hobbyists the advantage of buying a higher bandwidth oscilloscope with today’s latest features at a low budget price point.
The 2190E’s new 7in widescreen colour display increases the previous model’s resolution from 480 x 234 to 800 x 480 pixels and offers a significantly larger viewing area than 5.7in screens typically found on economy scopes.
The DSO provides 100MHz bandwidth with 1GSa/s sampling rate, waveform memory up to 40,000 points, pass/fail limit testing, digital filtering, and a waveform recorder.
A USB host port is provided on the front panel to quickly save setup and waveform data, screenshots, or CSV files to a USB flash drive.
The newly added LAN interface is another feature not typically found in oscilloscopes at this price range and provides users another method of remote PC connectivity through software or SCPI commands.
The DSO continues to offer standard USBTMC-compliant USB and RS232 interfaces. An optional USB-to-GPIB adapter can also be connected to the USB host port for GPIB connectivity.
For educators, the 2190E provides a context-sensitive help feature and the ability to disable the Auto Set button along with Measure and Cursor menus for training.
Additional features include advanced triggering capabilities, 32 automatic measurements, and FFT function along with math functions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide input channels.
