Scope for 'Scopes'
from 109 to more than 22,000 pounds
For electronics engineers and technicians, the benchtop oscilloscope is an indispensable tool. If you don’t already have a ‘scope’, or if you’re looking to acquire a new scope in the near future, our survey will help you select the proper one. At first glance, the number of different makes and models of oscilloscopes currently available appears to be too large for a comprehensive survey. Even making a responsible choice when purchasing an oscilloscope appears to be practically impossible. However, the product range of most manufacturers actually consists of only a few basic types, which are available in models having different specifications. If we assume that the members of such a product family are more or less the same with regard to design, construction and basic functionality, the problem is considerably simplified.
