Teledyne LeCroy debuts WaveSurfer 3000 oscilloscopes
Teledyne LeCroy introduces the WaveSurfer 3000 series of oscilloscopes featuring the MAUI advanced user interface. This advanced user interface, previously available only on higher-end oscilloscopes, seamlessly integrates a deep measurement toolset and multi-instrument capabilities into a cutting edge user experience centered on a large 10.1” touch screen, the largest display and only touch screen in this class of oscilloscope. WaveSurfer 3000 oscilloscopes are available in bandwidths from 200 to 500 MHz, with 10 Mpts/ch memory and up to 4 GS/s sample rate. Beyond traditional oscilloscope functionality, the WaveSurfer 3000 has a variety of multi-instrument capabilities including waveform generation with a built in function generator, protocol analysis with serial data trigger and decode, and logic analysis with an available 16 channel mixed signal option.
Combining a fast waveform update rate of 130,000 waveforms/second with History mode waveform playback and WaveScan search and find, the WaveSurfer 3000 is an outstanding tool for waveform anomaly detection. The advanced active probe interface gives tremendous flexibility for measuring high voltages, high frequencies, currents or differential signals. The superior toolset with powerful math and measurement capabilities, sequence mode segmented memory, and LabNotebook ensure that problems can be debugged, analyzed and documented for a faster solution.
MAUI Advanced User Interface
MAUI is an advanced user interface that was developed to put all the power and capabilities of the oscilloscope right at the user’s fingertips. It was designed for touch; all important oscilloscope controls, as well as positioning and zooming waveforms, moving cursors, configuring measurements and interacting with results are done with intuitive touch screen controls. MAUI is made for simplicity; basic features and advanced tools are seamlessly integrated to simplify operation. Time saving shortcuts and intuitive dialogs simplify setup, and the intelligent display resizes waveforms and measurements to simplify debug. MAUI is built to solve; all aspects of waveforms can be measured to quickly identify problems, the causes of these problems can be determined using the deepest set of debug tools and solutions can be found fast with the powerful analysis tools.
The WaveSurfer 3000 is available in four different models ranging from 200 MHz, 2 channel to 500 MHz, 4 channel with U.S. list prices ranging from $3,200 to $6,950.
