Distributors are queuing up to launch the entry level oscilloscopes announced by Tektronix earlier this week.
Farnell element14 and Conrad are first off the mark with the product which is a classic test distribution offering priced at £343.
Farnell element14 look focused on the business market while Conrad is emphasising the educational sector.
Chris Godfrey, Global Product Director Test & Tools, Premier Farnell, commented: “We are pleased to grow our Tektronix range with the addition of the TBS1000B. Our drive is to support the customer from design right through to production and this product’s great range of features makes it easier for engineers to diagnose problems quickly and efficiently.”
“We are delighted to be able to offer these exciting new entry-level test and measurement products from Tektronix from first launch,” said Michael Schlagenhaufer, Senior Product Manager, Conrad Business Supplies. “The education sector is crucial to nurturing the engineers of the future who will continue to drive the evolution of technology that impacts all our lives. Therefore Conrad views it as a hugely important area to support and provide fast-and-easy access to product for.”
The oscilloscope includes USB connectivity, 34 automated measurements, limit testing, data logging, frequency counter, trend plot and a context-sensitive help menu. Commercial and educational use variants with different price points & unique features are tailored to each target market segment.
It has a 7in. high resolution TFT display for a clear view of all signals and critical on-screen information. The instrument is further enhanced by a user interface that provides quick access to all the oscilloscope functions and includes a high resolution “Pan & Zoom” feature enabling visibility of even more signal details of up to 10 time normal resolution.
Addressing educational and R&D applications with high availability products, equipment and components is a key aspect of Conrad Business Supplies’ service and support to the electronics and overall engineering market sectors.
