SHORT DESCRIPTION

In May 2020, the American company Tektronix released the TBS2000B series of oscilloscopes, thereby updating its previous line of basic oscilloscopes (the TBS2000). In the new series Tektronix TBS2000B two models with 200 MHz bandwidth were added, the maximum sampling rate of all models was increased to 2 GS/s, and the input path design was improved, which increased the accuracy of measurements.

TBS2000B series oscilloscopes can perform 32 types of automatic measurements, including measurements using automated cursors. For beginners, the help system built into the oscilloscope is very useful, and professionals will definitely appreciate the TekVPI probe connection interface, which is compatible with both conventional BNC probes and active probes voltage and current. You can download a full description of all the characteristics of Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes below on this page in the section Documentation.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Both the two-channel (TBS2072B, TBS2102B and TBS2202B) and four-channel (TBS2074B, TBS2104B and TBS2204B) models of the Tektronix TBS2000B series oscilloscopes are very easy to use and help you quickly and efficiently perform practical measurements. The time of analysis of electrical signals is significantly reduced due to the special buttons and control knobs that provide quick access to the main settings of the oscilloscope.

Most other oscilloscopes have 8 vertical divisions and 10 horizontal divisions, while the TBS2000B series oscilloscopes have 10 vertical divisions and 15 horizontal divisions, allowing you to see more details in the measured signals. The following is a detailed description of the main features of the oscilloscopes of this series. You can download a full description of all the characteristics below on this page in the section Documentation.

This photo shows a two-channel model (top) and a four-channel model (bottom) of the Tektronix TBS2000B series. As you can see, the body of the 4-channel model is slightly larger, while the screen sizes are the same.

Long recording length with pan and zoom

The Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes are selectable from 2K to 5M samples in length to capture waveforms over long periods of time. When setting a long record length facilitates the search for various signal anomalies and verification of digital signal sequences. To view long records, a separate "Zoom" knob is used, which allows you to quickly scroll through the recorded signal and scale selected fragments for detailed examination.

In zoom mode, the Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes display up to 5M waveforms at the top of the display. The selected section of the signal is shown in detail below.

Using cursors to take measurements

Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscope cursors are vertical or horizontal lines on the screen that perform measurements of various signal parameters, for example, the time and amplitude of any point in the signal. Cursors also show the absolute difference in value between the two cursor positions (delta). Cursor readings are displayed next to the cursors themselves. This is a very handy feature for accurately measuring any waveform, especially complex waveforms.

Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscope cursors measure the time and amplitude of any signal point. Cursor data is displayed directly on the waveform.

Automatic measurements have never been so easy

With Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes, selecting from 32 automatic measurements is done using just one page, without navigating through complex menus. Most Used measurements are located at the top of the screen. Below, all measurements are grouped into four groups by type: frequency, time, amplitude, and area. When you hover over any measurement, a visual graphical hint is shown at the very bottom of the screen, showing exactly what will be measured. Such a complete set of automatic measurements allows you to speed up and simplify the analysis of a variety of signals.

With Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes, 32 measurements can be selected from one intuitive screen. At the very bottom of the screen, a visual graphic hint is shown.

Measurements are indicated by the color of the input signal and are shown on a transparent background without covering the waveforms. If necessary, the built-in help system can provide detailed hints that simplify measurements and allow them to correctly interpret their results.

Built-in prompt system simplifies instrument operation

Interactive built-in hint system HelpEverywhere is a unique feature of Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes. As you move through the menu items, it instantly displays the relevant help information. Tips include: measurement information, application information and general instructions in text and graphic form. The HelpEverywhere menu allows you to selectively turn tips on and off. Such a system greatly simplifies the development of all functions of the oscilloscope and increases the efficiency of work.

All Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes are equipped with the FFT function

There are many signals that have some kind of distortion or unwanted parameters. Sometimes such distortions do not affect the signal flow through the circuit. But often the pulses of the system clock generator, noise from the power supply or other source can affect the useful signal and disrupt its proper passage. The FFT function is a powerful tool to help you find the frequencies of unwanted signals that interfere with the main signal.

Press the dedicated FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) button on the front panel of the Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscope and the screen the frequency spectrum of the input signal will be displayed. You can display only the FFT result on the screen, or you can display the FFT along with the display of the original signal to see both the frequency and time domain. The main settings of this function are displayed on a transparent background, without interfering with the reading of information from the FFT screen.

In this screenshot of a Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscope, the original time domain signal (at the top of the screen) is displayed simultaneously with its spectrum (at the bottom of the screen)

Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscopes support both conventional and active probes.

All instruments of the Tektronix TBS2000B series (models TBS2072B, TBS2074B, TBS2102B, TBS2104B, TBS2202B and TBS2204B), although they belong to the entry-level oscilloscopes, are equipped with universal TekVPI probe connection interface, which is compatible with both conventional BNC probes and active voltage and current probes, which are used in various complex applications.

Power is applied to the probe through the TekVPI interface and a bi-directional communication channel is established between the probe and the TBS2000B oscilloscope. Scale factors and status information such as error correction are automatically transferred from the probe to the oscilloscope for processing and display. You don't have to spend time manually setting scaling factors, calculating offsets, or making sure the clamps are closed and the current probe core is demagnetized.

When an active probe is connected, the TekVPI interface automatically transfers information about scale factors, selected ranges, and settings between the probe and the Tektronix TBS2000B oscilloscope
