Six is Better as One

Home > Blog > Digital Multimeters > Six is Better as One

There is a saying. “To have a cluttered desk is to have a cluttered mind.” More often than not, we find ourselves overwhelmed with the amount of work we have. It is for these cases that having a tool which saves space and solves multiple problems is the best solution. People waste a lot of time looking for the appropriate tool leading to wasted time for many of us that have too little. Many have heard the saying “kill two birds with one stone”. Not as common is the saying “kill six birds with one stone”. This now applies to test and measurement.

Tektronix has just announced the release of the MDO3000. Going back to the stone analogy, this oscilloscope is unique in the fact that it combines six usually separate machines into just one. The MDO3000 features Tektronix’s already famous oscilloscope as the base with a built in spectrum analyzer. The MD3000 then features an arbitrary function generator, logic analyzer, serial protocol analyzer, and digital voltmeter as optional built-in modules as well. Having so many different functions in one go-to piece of machinery eliminates the hassle of running around looking for the right tool for the job.

The MDO3000 gives you all the testing power and punch you could hope for.
