The Tektronix TBS1152B Digital Storage Oscilloscope Series provides you with affordable performance in a compact design. Packed with standard features - including USB connectivity, 34 automated measurements, limit testing, data logging, frequency counter, trend plot and a context-sensitive help menu - the Tektronix TBS1152B Oscilloscopes helps you get more done, in less time.

Seeing signal details

To properly analyze signals you need to make sure that you can see them in enough detail. The Tektronix TBS-1152B comes standard with a 7-inch high resolution TFT display for a clear view of all of your signals and critical on-screen information. The interface is easy to use, provides quick access to all of the oscilloscope functions and includes a high resolution "Pan & Zoom" feature enabling you to see even more signal details of up to 10 times normal resolution.

Digital precision for accurate measurements

With up to 150 MHz bandwidth, 2 GS/s maximum sample rate and 3% vertical measurement accuracy the Tektronix TBS1152B allows you to see the details of your signals. With the Tektronix proprietary sampling technology there are no compromises, you will get the stated real-time sampling rate on all channels, all the time with at least of 10X oversampling. The sampling performance is not reduced when changing horizontal settings or when using multiple channels, enabling you to see the true characteristics of your signals.

Critical tools for troubleshooting your device

The Tektronix TBS/1152-B oscilloscope comes standard with a variety of advanced triggers used to debug today's complex circuitry. Flexible options for utilizing rising or falling edges, pulse widths and video trigger set-ups enable users to quickly isolate their signals of interest.

Once signals are captured, the Tektronix TBS 1152/B offers advanced math and measurement capabilities making it easy to evaluate signal quality. Users can add, subtract and multiply waveforms or use any one of 34 automated measurements to quickly and reliably calculate important signal characteristics such as frequency, rise time or overshoot.

A dedicated front panel button provides quick access to the FFT function that is capable of showing both frequency and time domain waveforms simultaneously, which provides a convenient way to see the relationship between signals and the FFT results.

For accurate frequency measurements the Tektronix TBS1152B also comes with built-in dual channel frequency counters. Independent control of each counter's trigger level provides an easy way to monitor two different signal frequencies simultaneously.

Extensive monitoring and analysis tools

Intermittent faults can be hard to evaluate, simply because they do not repeat often making them difficult to capture. The TrendPlot function helps find those faults by plotting measurement values over long periods of time. Select the measurement to capture on either or both channels and then set-up the oscilloscope to continuously monitor those measurements, plot the data on the display and simultaneously save the information to a USB thumb drive. Depending on the oscilloscope setting, you'll be able to capture data for minutes, hours or even days; the only limitation is the size of the thumb drive.

Often, only Pass/Fail data is needed to determine if a signal is good. This can be accomplished easily with the Tektronix TBS/1152-B Limit Test feature. The oscilloscope can be set-up to automatically monitor a source signals and output Pass or Fail results by evaluating whether the acquired waveform falls within predefined boundaries. The Tektronix TBS1152B Limit Test feature allows users to create templates based on one or two independent reference waveforms, providing more flexibility when creating masks for complex signals. If a failure is detected, a series of specific actions can be triggered which include; stopping waveform acquisition, halting Limit Test functions,saving a screen image of the failed waveform, or any combination of the above.

Flexible data transfer

The USB host port on the front panel enables you to save your instrument settings, screenshots, and waveform data onto a USB memory device. This port also supports the built-in Data Logging feature which enables you to set up the oscilloscope to save user- specified triggered waveforms to a USB device for up to 24 hours. You can also select the "Infinite" option for continuous waveform monitoring. In the infinite mode you can save your triggered waveforms to an external USB memory device without a duration limitation until the memory device is full. The Tektronix TBS 1152B will then guide you to insert another USB memory device to continue saving waveforms.

Designed to make your work easy

The Tektronix TBS-1152-B oscilloscopes are designed with the ease of use andfamiliar operation you have come to expect from Tektronix.

Intuitive operation

The intuitive user interface with dedicated per-channel vertical controls,auto-setup, and auto-ranging makes the Tektronix TBS1152B easy to use,reducing learning time and increasing efficiency.

Help when you need it, where you need it

The built-in Help menu provides you with important information about youroscilloscope's features and functions. Help is provided in the same languages as the user interface. In addition to industry-leading service and support, every Tektronix TBS1152B oscilloscope comes backed with a 5-year warranty as standard.
