Product Details

Tektronix FCA3000 & FCA3100 Timer/Counter/Analyzers

Tektronix timer/counter/analyzers offer 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 the added benefit of multi-parameter measurements from one test connection, e.g., voltage measurements included with frequency. The instruments offer 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.

Graphical, multi-parameter timer/counter display
High resolution down to 50 ps single shot (time)
Measurements to 12 digits/sec (frequency)
Fast USB/GPIB bus transfer speeds
Super fast measurements (250k/s) to internal memory
Zero-dead time frequency/period measurements
Built-in statistics & math functions including on screen histogram, trend plot or Allan Deviation
GPIB operates in either SCPI/GPIB or 53131A emulation mode, for plug-n-play replacement in existing ATE systems
Seamless PC connectivity through USB with NI SignalExpress™ Software

Note

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.
