19 December 2014 - Rohde & Schwarz is expanding its R&S RTM bench oscilloscope family by a new model that is ideal for the education sector. The instrument features a 200 MHz bandwidth and an education mode that deactivates special measurement tools to help students quickly learn how to work with an oscilloscope. Also a new digital voltmeter and frequency counter option is offered.
Rohde & Schwarz designed the new 200 MHz models of the R&S RTM oscilloscope especially for universities and educational institutions. The education mode was developed for test and measurement practica and makes it possible to disable all analysis tools (e.g. Autoset and QuickMeas) and automatic measurements. This improves the learning effect as students and learners have to calculate measurement results on their own. The mode is password protected and available for the other bandwidth models of the R&S RTM family as well.
The R&S RTM is also ideal for general T&M applications in development, manufacturing and service. Using the R&S RTM B200, B201 and B202 bandwidth upgrade options, the 200 MHz models can grow with future requirements and be expanded to 500 MHz. The new R&S RTM-K32 digital voltmeter option enables the R&S RTM to measure various values such as AC, DC, peak and crest factor with three digit accuracy regardless of the oscilloscope's triggering. A seven digit frequency counter has also been integrated into the scope.
The R&S RTM features a sampling rate of 5 Gsample/s and a memory depth of 20 Msample, and its functional range can be further expanded with additional options. There is, for example, a large selection of options available for triggering and decoding serial buses (R&S RTM K1 to K7). With 460 Msample memory depth, the R&S RTM-K15 history and segmented memory option is especially beneficial for seamless analysis of data sequences with long rest periods such as pulsed signals and serial bus data packets. The R&S RTM-K31 power analysis option provides users with specialized measurement functions to automatically verify the quality of all components of switching power supplies.
The new R&S RTM models with 200 MHz bandwidth and two or four channels as well as the optional R&S RTM-K32 digital voltmeter are available now.
