New oscilloscopes products announcements in 2016-2017

Oscillocopes: overview of new products 2016-2017

  • In the electronic instrumentation market, the oscilloscope is the most commonly used device.
  • The manufacturers therefore regularly renew their range of digital oscilloscopes.
  • Temcom offers an overview of the main innovations launched on the market during the year: from August 2016 to September 2017.

 

  • Entry-level oscilloscopes: in March 2017, Keysight and Rohde & Schwarz announced the launch of the 1000 X-Series and R & S RTB2000 ranges. Tektronix had preceded them in August 2016 with the introduction of the TBS2000 family.
  • Tektronix’s TBS2000 series oscilloscopes feature a memory depth of up to 20 Mpts, a 9-inch color display, user-friendly tools, and features for education. The TBS2000 series includes four models with 70 or 100 MHz bandwidth over 2 or 4 channels sampled up to 1Ge / sec. These instruments are marketed according to models between 1140 euros and 2080 euros.
  • The Keysight 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes, with two inputs, combine up to six instrument functions (oscilloscope, serial bus protocol analyzer, digital voltmeter and frequency meter) and have a bandwidth of 50, 70 or 100 MHz. They have a sampling frequency of 1 or 2 GS / s. They use the principle of memory segmentation to optimize its use (1 Mpts for DSOX1102A and DSOX1102G models). They are marketed between 422 € and 798 € according to the models.
  • Rohde & Schwarz’s R & S RTB2000 family of oscilloscopes, with 2 or 4 channels, stand out for their scalable bandwidth ranging from 70, 100, 200 to 300 MHz, their 10-bit vertical resolution, 10-color touchscreen display inches, their memory depth of 10 Mpts and their maximum sampling rate of 1.25 Gech / s per channel and 2.5 Gech / s in interlace mode (1 channel out of 2 used). These oscilloscopes, remotely controlled by their integrated Wi-Fi connection, offer several features including a pattern and function generator, a digital voltmeter or FFT calculation. Other functions, which can be unlocked later on the acquisition of the instrument, are also available: 16 digital inputs, arbitrary generator, I2C / SPI, UART / RS232 and CAN / LIN serial bus triggering and decoding capacities . The basic version of these oscilloscopes (2 channels, 70 MHz) is marketed 1250 € and 1950 € for the 4-channel model.
  • Rigol Technologies presents the DS4000E range of oscilloscopes including two models with 4 channels and a bandwidth of 100 MHz and 200 MHz and a sampling frequency of up to 2Gbps per channel.
  • The Chinese manufacturer also recently announced the DS2000E model, with two channels and an 8-inch color display. This oscilloscope offers a frequency range of 100 MHz and 200 MHz and a sampling rate of up to 1 GS / s per channel.

 

  • Teledyne Lecroy High-Definition Oscilloscopes:
  • Teledyne Lecroy’s High Definition oscilloscopes are distinguished by their 12-bit resolution. They are now capable of digitizing signals at speeds up to 10 GS / s. They have a bandwidth up to 1 GHz and an acquisition memory of up to 250 Mpt per channel. MSO versions with 16 digital inputs are also available. The HDO4000A, HDO6000A and HDO8000A series oscilloscopes and the MDA800A motor control analyzers also feature the “MAUI with OneTouch” user interface for intuitive touch control on their 12.1 “touchscreen.
  • In September 2016, Teledyne LeCroy also presented the HDO9000 Series oscilloscopes, which display a bandwidth of 1 to 4 GHz and have a vertical resolution of 10 bits. They feature 4 inputs, HD1024 technology, the MAUI with OneTouch user interface and a 15.4-inch capacitive touchscreen.

 

 

  • Optimum flexibility for Tektronix MSO5:
  • The oscilloscopes of the MSO 5 series from Tektronix, marketed especially by Testoon, stand out for their great flexibility in the choice of the number of analogue and digital channels. They offer 4, 6 or 8 analog inputs, each of which can accommodate an 8-channel digital probe. This offers the possibility to combine up to 64 digital inputs on the same platform. Their frequency band is evolutionary after the purchase of 350 MHz, 500 MHz, 1 GHz and 2 GHz. These instruments are equipped with 12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and a 15.6-inch capacitive touchscreen.

 

  • GW Instek extends its offer to MSO and multi-domain:
  • The MSO-2000 series from GW Instek, marketed in France by Testoon, includes two oscilloscopes for mixed signals. The MSO-2000E incorporates a 16-channel logic analyzer. As well as the MSO-2000EA which also has an arbitrary 25 MHz two channel signal generator.
  • The MDO-2000E multi-domain oscilloscope series which includes two models. The MDO-2000EG oscilloscopes have spectral analysis capabilities (DC at 500 MHz) and an arbitrary generator (25 MHz, (200 MS / s, 14 bits). The MDO-2000EX models also include a digital multimeter of 5 000 points and a 5V / 1A power supply.

 

  • Multi-function portable oscilloscope:
  • The Rohde & Schwarz Scope Rider Portable Oscilloscope offers three additional measurement options to combine the functionality of eight instruments. The new features include a spectrum analyzer, a frequency meter and a harmonic analyzer to assess the quality of power supplies.

 

  • Portable multi-channel oscilloscope:
  • Yokogawa has completed the ScopeCorder series with the launch of the DL350 which is more like a portable signal acquisition solution than an oscilloscope. This instrument is characterized by portability, battery operation, 8.4-inch resistive touchscreen, 16 digital inputs and the choice of two user-replaceable acquisition modules that can be fitted. 18 modules are available to acquire voltages and signals from current sensors, temperature sensors, strain gauges, accelerometers and serial buses.

 

  • USB-Controlled Oscilloscope Modules:
  • Pico Technology has launched the PicoScope 4444 oscilloscope module with four differential inputs and a range of accessories for measuring voltages ranging from a few millivolts up to 1000 V on category installations III.
  • National Instruments boosted the performance of its all-in-one instrument range VirtualBench with the VB-8054 model, which has an analog 500 MHz oscilloscope bandwidth and a generator capable of delivering sine functions up to frequencies of 40 MHz. VirtualBench brings together a mixed-signal oscilloscope, a function generator, a programmable DC power supply, a 5 1/2 digit digital multimeter and 8 digital I / Os
