Newark Launches New Tektronix Digital Storage Oscilloscope

New TBS2000B scope features automated measurements to assist engineers and educators.

Newark has added the new entry level TBS2000B Digital Storage Oscilloscope from Tektronix to its test and measurement portfolio. 

The TBS2000B series is a complete drop-in replacement for TBS2000 series oscilloscopes, with the same form factor and programmable interface. 

Features of the TBS2000B include:

  • A 9-inch WVGA display with a 5-million-point record length and 2GS/s sample rate which enables users to capture and display more signal, speeding up debug, and design validation. 
  • 32 automated measurements and on-waveform cursor readouts with search and mark features that enable identification of events that occur in the acquired waveform. 
  • TekVPI, Tektronix's proprietary probe support interface, enabling application coverage using the latest active differential and current probes with automatic scaling and units. This is the industry's only entry-level instrument featuring TekVPI, according to the company. The TBS2000B also supports traditional passive BNC probes.  
  • Range of connectivity options including Wi-Fi support (via USB Wi-Fi dongle), 2 USB host ports, and 100-BaseT Ethernet for sharing of measurements and collaboration.

Newark offers 24/5 technical support with test and measurement specialists on-hand and online resources such Newark's online probe selector tool. 

The Tektronix TBS2000B Digital Storage Oscilloscope is available from Newark in North America.
