Tektronix Launches TBS1000 Series Oscilloscopes

Tektronix (News - Alert) Inc., a manufacturer of oscilloscopes, recently unveiled the TBS1000 Series of entry-level oscilloscopes. Ideal for a wide variety of general purpose electronics test applications, the TBS1000 Series delivers performance and accuracy with 1 GS/s or 500 MS/s sample rates and 3 percent DC gain accuracy down to 2 mV.

Prices range from $520 for a two-channel 25 MHz instrument to $1,520 for a two-channel 150 MHz model.

The TBS1000 Series provides clients with affordable performance in a compact design. Packed with standard features – including USB connectivity, 16 automated measurements, limit testing, data logging, and context-sensitive help – the TBS1000 Series oscilloscopes help the clients get more done in less time.

The TBS1000 is easy to learn and simple to operate, ideal for first-time oscilloscope users and students. Featuring the same user interface as the Tektronix TDS Oscilloscope Family, students will learn to operate the world’s most popular oscilloscope platform, with over 500,000 oscilloscopes in operation worldwide.

"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."

To simplify integration with the existing curriculum, the TBS1000 also includes an Education Resource CD filled with tools to help the students master the use of an oscilloscope. The intuitive user interface with dedicated per-channel vertical controls, auto-setup and auto-ranging makes these instruments easy to use, reducing learning time and increasing efficiency.

"There's no question that Tektronix is the world standard in oscilloscopes," said Yong-Beom Cho, Ph.D., Department of Electronic Engineering, Konkuk University. "From the most basic to the highest end, Tektronix scopes have always led the way in reliability, performance and quality. With the TBS1000 it looks like Tektronix is leading the way in value too."
