TPS2000B Series Oscilloscopes for Powerful Productivity from Bench to Field
The TPS2000B Series offers a distinctive range of capabilities in an oscilloscope with controls and menus you will find familiar and easy to use. Available in 2- or 4-channel versions, the TPS2000B Series with IsolatedChannel™ technology provides isolation from ground and isolation between channels allowing you to take measurements with less worry about damaging circuitry. Battery power comes standard, making it a natural choice for field applications. For work on power electronics, optional software integrates commonly needed power system measurements into the instrument, speeding up power analysis and troubleshooting.
Unintentionally grounding a circuit under test is a common cause of poor measurement results and circuit damage. Connecting two or more grounded probes can cause ground loops, and if the current is high enough can result in ruined components and equipment. Most importantly, taking floating measurements without the proper instruments and probes can pose a safety hazard.
Tektronix IsolatedChannel technology simplifies floating measurements. Unlike ground-referenced oscilloscopes, the TPS2000B input connector shells are isolated from each other and from earth ground. Within the specified 600 VRMS maximum float voltage, IsolatedChannel technology keeps current from flowing between the TPS2000B input BNC shells or from any BNC shell to earth.

From mobile phones to industrial motor drives, power conversion technology has enabled significant advances in size, performance, and energy efficiency. But even the most basic task of viewing a converter's input and output is complicated by multiple voltage references. Multiple references also make it challenging to view signals from control circuits and power circuits at the same time. Using ground-referenced oscilloscopes in these applications, without appropriate differential probes, can damage circuits and produce bad measurements. For debugging power conversion electronics, IsolatedChannel technology reduces the risk of damage and unintended circuit interactions.
For performing power system measurements, TPS2PWR1 power application software is available as an option for the TPS2000B. It provides advanced power measurements right on the oscilloscope, at an entry-level price.
For dialing in the performance of switching components, the power application software adds important measurements to the TPS2000B, including automatic switching loss, dv/dt, and di/dt cursor measurements.
Quickly Debug and Characterize Signals with DRT Sampling Technology
Characterize a wide range of signal types on up to four channels simultaneously with the TPS2000B Series Digital Real-Time (DRT) sampling technology. This acquisition technology makes it possible to capture high-frequency events, such as glitches and edge anomalies, that eludes other oscilloscopes in its class, so that you can be sure to get an accurate view of your signal.
Quickly reveal signal interference, crosstalk, and the effects of vibration with frequency domain analysis using the TPS2000B Series Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) feature. Then, easily document your measurement results with the integrated CompactFlash® mass storage.
To capture, save, and analyze your measurement results on your PC, the included OpenChoice® PC software can be used. Every TPS2000B Series also ships with a free copy of the special Tektronix Edition of National Instrument's LabVIEW SignalExpress™ software for basic instrument control, data logging, and analysis.
Correlate Your Measurements from Bench to Lab to Field
Use the TPS2000B Series on your bench, in the lab, or in the field, with the industry's longest continuous battery life — 8 hours and beyond — in a highly mobile package. Enjoy virtually unlimited freedom from an AC power source with hot-swappable batteries.
Optimize Your Productivity
The oscilloscope has a front-panel layout that most users will find familiar. Each channel has a dedicated set of scale and position controls. Reduce your measurement time with features like autoset, autorange, automatic measurements, probe check wizard, and context-sensitive help. Backlit menu buttons help you work in a variety of challenging environments — from bright daylight to dimly lit areas.
