November 25, 2013 - Providing 2 Mpts of waveform memory, 2510 Series combines floating point measurement capabilities with built-in DMM and trend plot recorder functions. Models 2511 and 2512 are 60 and 100 MHz devices, respectively, that provide 2 non-isolated 300 V CAT II rated inputs suitable for general electronics. For industrial applications, 60 MHz Model 2515 and 100 MHz Model 2516 deliver 2 fully isolated 1,000 V CAT II/600 V CAT III rated inputs. All include 5.7 in. color display and USB connectivity.

B&K Precision Adds Its First Handheld DSO Offering for Industrial Applications

B&K Precision Corporation

Yorba Linda, CA, 92887

Press release date: November 20, 2013

Isolated Models with 1,000 V CAT II / 600 V CAT III Rated Inputs and Floating Measurement Capabilities, Built-in DMM, and Trend Plot Recorder Functions

YORBA LINDA, CA -- B&K Precision today announced its new 2510 Series handheld digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO). Four models make up this new line of dual-channel oscilloscopes that includes 60 MHz and 100 MHz bandwidth models in non-isolated and isolated designs. Suitable for general electronics, models 2511 and 2512 provide non-isolated 300 V CAT II rated inputs. For industrial applications, models 2515 and 2516 provide two fully isolated 1,000 V CAT II / 600 V CAT III rated inputs. With 1 GSa/s sampling rates and 2 Mpts of waveform memory, these portable scopes provide floating measurement capabilities combined with built-in digital multimeter (DMM) and recorder functions at an economical price point.

In applications such as power electronics, engineers and technicians often require measurements that are not referenced to ground. Floating traditional line-powered oscilloscopes poses a safety risk and may cause measurement errors due to signal common being connected to the scope chassis, thus making battery-powered scopes the instrument of choice for these applications. Models 2515 and 2516 feature fully isolated channels for safe and accurate floating measurements.

All models in the 2510 Series offer 5.7” color displays, a built-in 6000-count DMM with dedicated terminals for current measurement, and scope/meter trend plot functions for logging measurement values over time. Capture and record up to two voltage or time parameters from the scope, or graph any one of the DMM’s measurements, which include: DC/AC voltage and current, resistance, capacitance, diode, and continuity test.

Additional features include digital filtering with adjustable limits, 32 automatic measurements, FFT and math functions, multi-language interface, and USB connectivity for remote PC control. A side panel USB host port is available for saving setups, waveform data, screenshots, or CSV files to a USB flash drive.

Weighing approximately 3.4 lbs. with the included rechargeable Li-ion battery, each model can provide up to four hours of continuous battery operation and come with two high bandwidth safety-rated passive probes plus a pair of DMM test leads. Models 2515 and 2516 include a hard plastic carry case accessory for safe transport on the road.

Available immediately, B&K Precision's 2510 Series models can be ordered at the prices listed below and are all backed by a standard 3-year warranty.

2511 -- 60 MHz, 2 non-isolated Ch, 300 V CAT II, $935
2512 -- 100 MHz, 2 non-isolated Ch, 300 V CAT II, $1,125
2515 -- 60 MHz, 2 isolated Ch, 1000 V CAT II, 600 V CAT III, $2,165
2516 -- 100 MHz, 2 isolated Ch, 1000 V CAT II, 600 V CAT III, $2,395
