This device comes in a wide range of models namely, 2540B, 2542B, 2540B-GEN, and 2542B-GEN which comes with diverse bandwidths ranging from 60 MHz, 100 MHz, 60 MHz and 100 MHz respectively. Another area where these models may vastly differ from each other is the fact that the 540B-GEN and the 2542B-GEN models have a built-in function waveform generator. All the same, they do have a convergence of various key features which include, 1 GSa/s sample rate, a deep waveform memory up to 2.4 Mpts, and an ability to measure up to 28 automatic wave measurements.
In addition, all models are infinitely customizable on various fronts, including the ability to set up the menu in 11 different languages and the ability to configure pass and fail settings through an array of digital filters. More notably is the fact that all models have the ability to seamlessly integrate other hardware and software that can be programmed with using SCPI commands. As a matter of fact, they are not only LAN and USB enabled, but they also have a USB host port for convenient storing and recalling of waveform data, setups, and screenshots on a USB flash drive.
Review of Key specifications
All models have a wide array of trigger types like, Pulse width, video, slope and alternate triggering. They also have the ability to quickly perform four different math functions namely; add, subtract, multiply, and FFT. They can also easily capture, save, and analyse measurement results with their very agile analytic and reporting tools found in the Comsoft PC software.
In fact, despite the versatility of the detailed dashboard, the plug and play ability of this software means that the devices can be seamlessly controlled via a PC without the need for programming. In fact, all you need to do is to link up with the device via the built-in LAN interface using a web browser.
