Global manufacturer of oscilloscopes, Tektronix, has announced three new additions to their line of benchtop instruments; the FCA3000 and FCA3100 series frequency counters, timers and analysers and the MCA3000 series of microwave frequency counters and analysers.
These frequency counters, timers and analysers, available in Australia from TekMark , smoothly integrate with other Tektronix bench instruments, such as oscilloscopes and arbitrary / function generators to deliver industry leading frequency and time resolution coupled with a lower cost of ownership.
The FCA3000, FCA 31000, and MCA3000 pack the functionality of a frequency counter, frequency meter and timer into one feature-rich benchtop instrument. With optimal resolution, users can capture very small frequency and time changes.
Additionally, with highly comprehensive analysis modes, including measurement statistics, histograms, and trend plots, users have the tools they need to quickly and accurately analyse a signal.
Instruments such as the FCA and MCA series frequency counters, timers and analysers are used for the measurement and analysis of frequency, time or phase signal parameters in design, production, and calibration labs or in field applications such as radar equipment monitoring and test. Critical factors in this industry segment include high-performance for better accuracy, analysis tools to quickly find answers to design problems, and support for fast data transfer rates.
