Product Details

Tektronix Frequency Counter

The Tektronix frequency counter is a 2 channel new generation, 300MHz totalize measurement device. This counter offers performance and an abundance of features at an affordable price. With a graphical display and single-button analyse key, users can instantly view their measurements with histograms, trend plots or a wide choice of statistics displayed simultaneously on the display, including Allan Deviation. There is an added benefit of multi-parameter measurements from one test connection like voltage measurements, included with frequency. This counter has a frequency resolution of 12digit/s and a time resolution of 50ps. This instrument offers very high measurement speed and connectivity for an automated test system, including a convenient USB port. Measurements can be captured into internal memory at the rate of 250k/sec or streaming block transfers through USB/GPIB up to 15k/sec. It has various advanced features for measuring frequency, period, ratio, time interval, time interval error, pulse width, rise/fall time, phase angle, duty cycle, maximum voltage, minimum voltage and peak-to-peak voltage.

Suitable for use with TVA3000 - TimeView™ Modulation Domain Analyser 712-1151 and with HCTEK4321 hard carrying case 613-1510

Supplied with
Quick Start User Manual (English, Chinese, Japanese), multiple language documentation CD, NI LabVIEW Signal Express+I168™ TE (Basic) Edition software, the trial version of TimeView™ Time Domain Analysis software, power cords, calibration certificate, UK & Euro plugs ( 712-1154 & 712-1157 )
