The Tektronix TDS3052B Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope 500 MHz, 5Gs/s packs the power of digital phosphor oscilloscope technology, WaveAlert automatic anomaly detection, OpenChoice documentation and analysis solutions with e*Scope® web-based remote control, and five application-specific modules into a lightweight, battery-capable design.
DPO technology delivers superior insight into complex signals with the ability to display, store and analyze three dimensions of signal information in real-time: amplitude, time, and distribution of amplitude over time. Fast waveform capture rates make it easier to capture and display infrequent waveforms or waveform variations, while the intensity graded display helps you locate and characterize wave-form anomalies that can be elusive on traditional digital storage oscilloscopes.
WaveAlert waveform anomaly detection speeds your troubleshooting tasks by helping you find those elusive problems faster. WaveAlert detection monitors the incoming signals on all channels and will detect and highlight any waveform that deviates from the normal waveform being acquired. Because the TDS3052B oscilloscope can stop acquisition, sound a beep, make a hard copy or save the waveform when it detects an anomaly, you can run tests over long time periods even unattended to find those challenging, very infrequent failures.
