Tektronix Inc. launched the 2 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO), reanalyzing the possibilities in test and measurement. The company claims it to be the first portable oscilloscope that provides benchtop performance and the award-winning Tektronix user interface. It weighs less than four pounds and is 1.5 inches thin, the 2 Series MSO is movable and can be transported in a small backpack, and delivers unmatched performance and portability. The new 2 Series MSO can go smoothly from the bench to the field and back, this feature was previously unpredictable on a scope.
According to the company, the 2 Series MSO is equipped with amazing features that allow engineers to achieve things that were not possible with previous oscilloscopes. It consists of a 10.1″ touchscreen display for better visibility and makes the work complete easier and faster. The built-in capabilities of the optional Arbitrary Function Generator (AFG), pattern generator, voltmeter, and frequency counter provide users with versatility built in one instrument instead of using several instruments for different functions.
The 2 Series MSO includes TekDrive, a test and measurement data workspace in the cloud where engineers can upload, store, organize, and share any file from a connected device. Integrated software tools assist engineers to collaborate, troubleshoot, and debug designs across time zones.Users can also perform analysis on a waveform and save it back to the cloud for immediate viewing and feedback from peers. It has a power backup of 8 hours which provides different levels of freedom to engineers to work.
“This breakthrough product was a direct result of our proven Growth Accelerator innovation process and continued focus on our customers,” said Tami Newcombe, Tektronix President. “Our team worked closely with engineers to deeply understand their unique needs. We cannot wait to see how the 2 Series MSO improves the way our customers work.”
