A line of low-cost oscilloscopes is ideal for maintenance applications through 300 MHz.
A line of digital storage oscilloscopes (DSOs) from B& K Precision was recently expanded with the addition of the 2550 series of two- and four-channel instruments. The oscilloscopes offer sampling rates to 2 GSamples/s and display bandwidths of 70 to 300 MHz, with 24 kpoints/channel capture memory. The oscilloscopes are ideal for repair, service, and maintenance applications. As an example of the new 2550 series DSOs, a four-channel, 300-MHz model shows results on a widescreen, 7-in. thin-film-transistor (TFT) display screen with excellent visibility even in daylight. The scopes—which have built-in waveform mathematics and Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) functions—include powerful debugging tools such as digital filtering with adjustable limits, waveform recorder mode, pass/fail testing, and advanced triggering capabilities. They bring 32 automatic measurements and feature adequate memory for recalling as many as 20 saved waveforms and 20 oscilloscope test setups. Each DSO is equipped with local-area-network (LAN) and Universal-Serial-Bus (USB) interface for control via a personal computer (PC); software is included with each instrument.
