Oscilloscope manufacturer Tektronix Inc. (www.tek.com) has expanded its portfolio with the addition of its latest handheld oscilloscope family. The THS3000 handheld oscilloscope series provide a new level of measurement accuracy and precision to technicians and engineers who need to install, debug and repair complex electronic systems in both lab and field environments.
Delivering a maximum sample rate of five GS/s and 200 MHz bandwidth, the new oscilloscopes are the highest-performing handheld oscilloscopes offered in the market.
“As electrical systems have become more complex and pervasive, there is a growing need for engineers to correlate field and lab measurements and to perform advanced debugging and analysis in the field,” noted Roy Siegel, General Manager for Oscilloscopes at Tektronix.
“As the first true high-performance handheld oscilloscope, the THS3000 Series has the technical performance for analysis of low voltage analog and digital control signals. In addition, the THS3000 Series offers isolated inputs for safely making high voltage floating or differential measurements.”
Weighing just 4.8 lbs, the lightweight THS3000 series offers four isolated channels and seven hours of battery life, making it ideal for use even in the most demanding situations. Customers can select between 100 MHz oscilloscopes with a maximum sampling rate of 2.5 GS/s and 200 MHz oscilloscopes with five GS/s sample rate.
With an intuitive user interface and 10,000 point record length per channel, the four channel oscilloscopes allow users to easily capture extensive signal information even at high sample rates to clearly view signal details.
The THS3000 offers 21 automated measurements that enable users to accurately and quickly make common measurements.
