Tektronix TBS1000B – new performance to the world’s best value entry level oscilloscopes

New TBS1000B-EDU, TBS1000B 2-Channel Oscilloscopes offer improved learning experience for students, expanded capabilities for basic R&D.;

BEAVERTON, Ore., March 18, 2014 – Tektronix, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, today introduced the TBS1000B-EDU and TBS1000B series of 2-channel oscilloscopes. Featuring across-the-board enhancements such as a high-resolution 7-inch display, dual channel frequency counter and 34 automated measurements, the new instruments represent the best value entry level oscilloscopes for students and teachers and support a wide range of general commercial applications including basic research and development.

Integrated Courseware for Faster Learning
The TBS1000B-EDU series are the first oscilloscopes in the industry with an integrated courseware system designed to help students learn more efficiently and effectively while minimizing the time instructors need to spend preparing and conducting lab sessions. With integrated courseware, instructors can make their lab exercise content viewable on the oscilloscope and students can conveniently capture lab results straight from the instrument.

Best-Value, Most Capabilities
The TBS1000B models address basic R&D, service and repair, manufacturing and electronics hobbyist applications. These oscilloscopes are designed to perform daily measurement tasks more accurately, efficiently and conveniently than comparable oscilloscopes in this class.

Instead of the education courseware, the general purpose models come equipped with additional functions. These include enhanced data logging, a limit-test feature to define pass/fail masks for complex signals, and TrendPlot™ for capturing and monitoring small measurement changes over long time periods.

All models of the TBS1000B-EDU and TBS1000B series raise the bar for performance and function in this market segment. Distinctive capabilities include an always-on sampling rate of up to 2 GS/s providing 10X oversampling on all channels all the time, a 7-inch high-resolution WVGA display and 34 automated measurements types to maximize efficiency. Bandwidths range from 50 MHz to 200 MHz and all models come with an unrestricted 5 year warranty, the leading warranty in the industry for this class of instrument.
