BANGALORE, INDIA: Tektronix Inc. has introduced the TDS2000C Series oscilloscopes that provide more features and performance to go with a new entry-level model with a starting price of just $990.
The “world’s most popular oscilloscope,” the TDS2000 Series is renowned for its industry-best performance with digital real-time sampling, important analysis functions and intuitive operation to help engineers and technicians get more done in less time.
With models ranging from 50 MHz to 200 MHz bandwidth, and with two or four channels, the Tektronix TDS2000C Series gives engineers the performance they need at an affordable price.
A number of the existing models now offer increased performance including 2 models that were 60 MHz are now 70 MHz bandwidth and two models that offered 1 GS/s sampling rates are now at 2 GS/s. All models include easy connectivity with USB ports, an expanded set of 16 automated measurements, a new limit test feature, intuitive operation with built-in help menus, and the industry’s only lifetime warranty.
“Eight out of 10 engineers use Tektronix oscilloscopes and the TDS2000 Series is a big reason why our instruments remain the world standard,” said Mike Flaherty, general manager Bench Instruments, Tektronix. “With the TDS2000C Series we are carrying over all the features that have made these oscilloscopes so popular while enhancing functionality and offering lower priced models, giving our customers the industry’s best value at a breakthrough price point.”
Even with features found in more advanced oscilloscopes, the TDS2000C Series starts at just $990 for a 50 MHz model with 2 channels. This represents a 25 percent price reduction from the previous lowest priced model, and is lower than similar models from other brand-name suppliers.
Every model in the TDS2000C Series features digital real-time sampling with at least 10X oversampling on every channel. Unlike other oscilloscopes on the market, the sample rate doesn’t reduce as additional channels are turned on, ensuring that each channel can accurately capture signals up to the oscilloscope’s full bandwidth.
