Launched today (August 2) the Tektronix TBS2000 Next Generation Oscilloscope is already in stock at Farnell element14. This new oscilloscope, provides design engineers and educators with an expanded range of capabilities, previously only available in more advanced and expensive models. Based on the proven TDS2000 series, the TBS2000 provides wifi and probe functionality, as well as featuring the longest record length and largest display in its class for faster signal evaluation and troubleshooting.
Design engineers using oscilloscopes to prototype, debug and validate the designs of new products and for general troubleshooting are increasingly faced with greater signal complexity, tighter signal tolerances and increased time pressure.
The functionality of basic equipment currently on the market can lead to a lack of confidence in measurements, and scale factors and corrections continue to be hand-applied due to inability to interface with today’s smart probing technology.
The TBS2000 comes in two models offering 70MHz or 100MHz bandwidth and with 2 or 4 channels.
Waveform cursor readouts and 32 automatic measurements make it easy to confidently analyse signals, and Tektronix says that the oscilloscope has the longest record length in its class, at 20M points.
The instrument has a 9 inch WVGA display with 15 horizontal divisions, and it is the only basic oscilloscope with the TekVPI Probe Interface for better applications coverage with a wider range of active and current probes.
For engineering professors, required to teach larger groups of students with an increasing amount of emphasis on hands-on lab work and TBS2000 includes wifi, making it easier to set up an engineering lab, and has a series of built in and online support such as HelpEverywhere and the downloadable Tektronix resource centre to support the teaching of large groups.
