TBS2000 USB ports

Share more, with ease.

The TBS2000 is the first oscilloscope with Wi-Fi support via a USB Wi-Fi dongle. It also has 2 USB host ports and 1 LXI compliant 100-BaseT Ethernet port, making it easy to share measurements and collaborate—with your lab partner or across the globe. Plus, the included software lets you easily connect to your PC to grab screen images and analyze data.

 

More probes. More applications.

The TekVPI™ probe interface not only supports standard BNC probes, but also allows you to use latest-generation active voltage and current probes. TekVPI enables communication between the scope and the latest current and differential voltage probes, simplifying measurement setups and extending your range of applications.
Highlights
  • Automatically communicate scale factors to the oscillscope.

  • Probe guidance such as open-jaw errors, offset settings and degauss requirements are presented on oscilloscope display.

  • No external power supply is required to power the probe.

How to Set Up Oscilloscope Probes, Vertical & Horizontal Settings

Anyone can twiddle the knobs on a scope and get something. And there’s always “Autoset” in a pinch. But do you know how to compensate a probe? How about the difference between a 1X and 10X probe? Do you know what AC coupling can do for you? Once you get the vertical controls figured out, the horizontal controls are easy.

How to Set Up Oscilloscope Triggering (Part 1: Edge Triggering)

Have you ever struggled to get a stable waveform on your scope? This video will show you how to set your triggers to get a stable display of signals from simple sine waves to modulated signals and burst signals. We’ll look at basic edge triggering, briefly talk about trigger coupling, and introduce trigger hold-off to trigger on bursts.

Basic Time & Amplitude Measurements Using the Tektronix Built in Automated Functions

This video tutorial will introduce you to basic time and amplitude measurements using built-in automated measurement functions available on TBS2000 series oscilloscopes. You will be guided through steps on how to add measurements on a specified input channel and define a portion of the waveform for measurement. We’ll cover the most basic and common measurements such as amplitude, max, min, peak-to-peak period, frequency, and phase.

How to Use Auto Measurement Functions to Create Pulse and Digital Signals

Many oscilloscope measurements are used for characterizing pulse signals or digital data. While you can always use cursors or estimate the measurement off the disply, it's often easier and more precise to use the built-in measurements on the scope. In this video tutorial we'll show you how to make digital signal amplitude measurement like high, low and overshoot. You'll learn about pulse and edge counting, and we'll talk about time measurements like rise and fall times and delay measurements.
