Tektronix introduced the TBS1000 Series of entry-level oscilloscopes, targeted at general-purpose electronics test applications for electrical engineers, educators and hobbyists.
Designed and manufactured by Tektronix, and backed by a five-year warranty, the new oscilloscopes deliver 1 GS/s or 500 MS/s sample rates and 3% DC gain accuracy down to 2 mV.
"There continues to be a strong and growing need globally for lower price point oscilloscopes," said Dave Farrell, general manager, mainstream oscilloscopes at Tektronix. "With the TBS1000 Series we are meeting this need with the lowest starting price for a Tektronix oscilloscope in recent history coupled with a capable feature set and a generous five-year warranty. Now almost anyone involved in electronics can afford to step up to Tektronix quality for their testing needs."
A new waveform data-logging feature allows users to save up to eight hours of triggered waveforms to a USB flash drive. Waveform limit testing allows users to monitor signal changes and output pass/fail results. The TBS1000 is based on the same proprietary technology as the extremely TDS2000 Series, and includes the same triggering, automatic measurements, USB connectivity, and FFT capability.
To meet the needs of educators, each oscilloscope includes an Education Resource CD offering a range of lab exercises, instructor's guides and primers that cover the use of oscilloscopes and probes.
