TDS5104B Datasheet

The Tektronix TDS5104B Digital Oscilloscope offers the industries first easily customizable oscilloscope user interface. MyScope control windows is a revolutionary new feature that allows you to build your own control windows with only the controls, features, and capabilities that you care about and are important in your job. For the first time, you can pull all the functionality you need from all the various parts of the oscilloscope into one control window, effectively creating your own personalized toolbox of oscilloscope features.

No longer do you need to search through menus for features or re-learn how to drive the oscilloscope after a break from the lab. MyScope control windows enable you to spend your valuable time focused on the task at hand rather than navigating menus on your oscilloscope. And creating these custom control windows isn't a long drawn-out or complex process. They are easily created in a matter of minutes using a simple, visual, drag and drop process. Once created, these custom control windows are easily accessed through a dedicated MyScope button and menu selection on the oscilloscope button/menu bar, just like any other control window.

You can make an unlimited number of custom control windows, enabling each person who uses the oscilloscope, in a shared environment, to have their own unique control window. Since the control windows are stored as files on the hard drive, they can easily be transferred to other TDS5104B Series oscilloscopes, or they can even be e-mailed to a co-worker around the world when the need arises. MyScope control windows will benefit all oscilloscope users, from eliminating the ramp-up time that many face when returning to the lab after not using an oscilloscope for a while, to the power user who can now operate far more efficiently. Everything you need is found in one control window rather than having to constantly navigate through menu after menu to repeat similar tasks.
