Keysight adds 50/70/100 MHz oscilloscopes for educators, small labs

-March 05, 2017

Taking aim at rivals Rigol and Tektronix, Keysight Technologies has introduced a series of four oscilloscopes aimed at educators, small labs, and perhaps individuals. The InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series of two-channel oscilloscopes has bandwidths of 50 MHz, 70 MHz, and 100 MHz (upgradeable from 70 MHz with a software key) with prices starting at $449 (see table).

The 1000 X-Series have 7-in. screens and with Keysight's MegaZoom technology they can put 50,000 waveforms/s on the screen—that's the same as the 2000 X-Series. Waveform memory for the 50-MHz models is 100 ksamples and 1 Msamples for the two 70/100-MHz models. That's considerably more than the Tektronix 1000B's 2.5 ksamples, but not up to the Rigol 1000Z series, which starts at 12 Msamples.

Two of the four models have built-in 20-MHz function generators, something missing from the Tektronix 1000B series. All four models have a 5-digit frequency counter and a 3½-digit DVM, both of which you can activate with a code you get from registering your oscilloscope.

With the 1000 X-Series, Keysight adds a Bode Plot. That's one feature you won't find on competitive oscilloscopes nor on any other Keysight oscilloscope (at least for now, perhaps). That feature is especially helpful to educators who want to show students a circuit's frequency response with having to manually plot points or export them to a PC. Besides an FFT function, the 1000 X-Series have math functions such as peak-to-peak, max, min, average, Frequency, period pulse width, and duty cycle.

Model Bandwidth Sample rate FuncGen Price
EDUX1002A 50 MHz 1 Gsample/s no $448
EDUX1002G 50 MHz 1 Gsample/s yes $647
DSOX1102A 70/100 MHz 2 Gsamples/s no $647
DSOX1102G 70/100 MHz 2 Gsamples/s yes $847

All models come with two 1x/10x switchable probes (replacement probes cost $17). The 50 MHz models have 70 MHz probes while the 70/100 MHz models have 200 MHz probes. Other accessories include a rackmount kit and carrying case.
