Tektronix THS720A Scope/True RMS DMM

Tektronix, THS 720A - Oscilloscope

The TekScope THS720A Scope/DMM combines a full-featured real-time oscilloscope with a True RMS digital multimeter in rugged, battery-operated instruments. Scope and meter modes can operate simultaneously and independently on the same or separate signals.

The high-resolution, backlit display and pop-up menus make it easy for users to take full advantage of the instrument’s many features. These include cursors, video trigger, voltage and resistance measurements and storage of waveforms, data and instrument setups.

In addition, they offer the most comprehensive triggering capabilities – external trigger and extensive triggering including delay, pulse width and video. The THS700A Series is ideal for electronic applications – at the bench or at the site. This unit shares measurement features with the THS720P Scope/DMM which includes features to address the needs of electric/power electronics measurements.
