The new oscilloscope comes with an enhanced user interface and a variety of education-specific features

London, UK, 18 August 2020:

RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, is now stocking the Tektronix TBS1000C digital storage oscilloscope. Affordable, compact, and easy to use, the TBS1000C comes with enhanced user interface and courseware, proving a great tool for STEM educators, students, and the maker community.

TBS1000C’s HelpAnywhere® system provides useful on-screen tips and hints, including text and graphics to walk new users through different settings, measurements, and results. The built-in Scope Intro handbook offers operating instructions and information on oscilloscope basics such as FFT analysis. Students can also take advantage of an integrated courseware system with step-by-step instructions on lab exercises appearing on the display. Educators can load lab exercises within a structured and intuitive framework into which students can capture data for their reports.

A user-friendly device, TBS1000C comes with an improved viewing angle and a display that is 67% brighter than in previous models. Dedicated front-panel controls give users easy access to all the key settings while on-screen, while large menus with clearly labelled and colour-coded information make it easy to navigate and find information of interest. There is also a zoom function to pan through the record and zoom in to visualise signal details.

A comprehensive set of 32 automated measurements enable fast and convenient testing of a variety of signal conditions across different applications. All measurements are displayed on a single selection screen and colour coded to make selection easy.

Other features include improved acquisition hardware with versatile triggering and acquisition modes. Several acquisition modes are available, including a default Sample Mode as well as a Peak Detect Mode and an Average Mode to reduce noise on repetitive signals.

TBS1000C comes in bandwidths of 50 MHz, 70 MHz, 100 MHz, and 200 MHz as well as an extended record length of 20k point on all channels.

The TBS1000C digital storage oscilloscope is now available from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
