Test & Measurement

Test and measurement equipment underpins the product design process, enabling engineers to verify their design is working in the way they want. If not, these essential devices help them to find out where the problems lie.

In this section, New Electronics keeps design engineers up to date with the Test and Measurement market, bringing a range of information about the products and their application.

Medical power supplies meet curve B radiated and conducted EMI

TDK-Lambda has unveiled the CUS30M and CUS60M series of AC-DC power supplies. Rated at 30W and 60W, these compact products have been designed to meet curve B conducted and radiated EMI in either a Class I or Class II (double insulated) construction, without the need for external filtering.

RS adds Tek scope to portfolio

RS Components has added the Tektronix TBS2000 series of digital storage oscilloscopes to its portfolio. According to the distributor, the TBS2000 captures and displays more signal than competitive units by featuring 10 vertical and 15 horizontal divisions.

Power measurement software provides PC connectivity

The WTViewerE software from Yokogawa provides PC connectivity for the company’s power analysers – including the WT3000E, WT1800E, WT500 and WT300E models – via Ethernet, USB, GPIB or RS232 interfaces. This connectivity allows users to control, monitor, collect and analyse measurement data, and save measurements remotely.

Buffered 18bit octal A/D converter

The LTC2358-18, an 18bit, 8channel simultaneous sampling successive approximation register (SAR) A/D converter from Linear Technology – now part of Analog Devices – features integrated picoamp input buffers.

Advanced instrument enclosures

METCASE has launched a range of aluminium enclosures for medical instruments, test and measurement, industrial control, peripherals, interfaces, switchboxes, communications and laboratory equipment.

Oscilloscope range extended

Teledyne LeCroy has launched the HDO4000A, HDO6000A, HDO8000A, and MDA800A analogue and mixed-signal oscilloscopes, with bandwidths ranging from 200MHz to 1GHz.

Rohde & Schwarz introduces a probe with very large offset range

The RT-ZPR20 is an extremely low-noise power rail probe with a bandwidth of 2 GHz. Developed by Rohde & Schwarz its 1:1 attenuation ensures very good sensitivity and a large offset range of ± 60 V permits analysis of the smallest disturbance signals during power integrity measurements, even on DC power supplies with a high voltage level.

Yokogawa updates optical spectrum analysis portfolio

With a diffraction grating based monochromator delivering high-precision measurement performance and accuracy, an enhanced user interface and an air purging feature, the AQ6374 from Yokogawa is a wideband optical spectrum analyser said to be a powerful benchtop tool for general purpose measurements over wavelengths ranging from 350 to 1750 nm.

Anritsu launches BER test solution for 100G-EPON

Anritsu has launched a plug-in modular bit error rate (BER) tester for measuring a range of interfaces up to multichannel 64Gbit/s. Called the MP1800A, the device supports BER measurements of Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and Optical Network Unit (ONU) for the latest 100G-EPON standard.
