Tektronix introduces new Entry Level Oscilloscopes

Tektronix-TBS100028 November 2012 – Tektronix introduced the TBS1000 Series of entry-level oscilloscopes with prices starting at just €389 / £343. The TBS1000 Series (for Tektronix Basic Scope) is designed and manufactured by Tektronix, and backed by a 5-year warranty. The new oscilloscopes deliver excellent performance and accuracy with 1 GS/s or 500 MS/s sample rates and 3 percent 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 5-year warranty. Now almost anyone involved in electronics can afford to step up to Tektronix quality for their testing needs.”

Compared to the previous TDS1000-EDU Series of oscilloscopes, the TBS1000 Series offers more bandwidth alternatives including new 25 MHz and 150 MHz models.  A new waveform data logging feature allows users to save up to eight hours of triggered waveforms to a USB flash drive.  Another enhancement is waveform limit testing that allows users to monitor signal changes and output pass/fail results. The TBS1000 is based on the same proprietary technology as the extremely popular TDS2000 Series, and includes the same versatile triggering, automatic measurements, USB connectivity, and FFT capability. Taken together the TBS1000 Series delivers an unbeatable combination of superior performance, unmatched ease-of-use, and affordability in an ultra-lightweight, portable package.

A particular strong suit for the TBS1000 Series is usability. The user interface offers intuitive operation familiar to engineers around the world, coupled with a full set of the most frequently used measurement types and analysis functions. Usability is further enhanced with a lightweight, compact design.

To meet the needs of educators, each TBS1000 oscilloscope includes an Education Resource CD offering a broad range of lab exercises, instructor’s guides and primers that cover the use of oscilloscopes and probes.

The TBS1000 Series oscilloscopes are available now. Prices range from €389 / £343 for a two-channel 25 MHz instrument to €1,140 / £1,000 for a two-channel 150 MHz model.
