Re: MSO58:Have loading sign while saving the screen image

What is the current firmware version on your MSO58? If is not V1.16.6, I would first recommend updating the V1.16.6. See https://www.tek.com/oscilloscope/mso56- ... ware-v1166

Re: AFG1062 configure DC Output via remote

You can use the [SOURce[1|2]]:VOLTage[:LEVel][:IMMediate][:AMPLitude] command. This command sets or queries the output amplitude for the specified channel. You can download the programmers manual from tek.com by going to the "Downloads" icon on the right side of the web page. Select the download typ...

Re: MSO2024B Losing USB connectivity

The issue is related to internal USB driver for this instrument. Ethernet is the preferred connection issue in this type of application.

Re: MSO5204B EXT REF IN and AUX OUT

The external reference input is conditioned multiple times by the instrument. The single ended input signal is converted to a differential signal and then fed through a PLL-based jitter reducing circuit. After that, the signal is buffered by multiplexer circuit that switches between the external clo...

Re: TCPA300 Amplifier Performance check and calibration

The 174-4765-00 has been replaced by p/n 174-4965-00. It is called out for use in the amplifier and respective current probe performance and calibration procedures manuals. (Which are available for download from Tek.com.) You can order it through your local Tektronix sales office.

Re: DATA Logging - TBS1202B

When using the data logger feature and you want to have the time/div slower than 25ms/div, set the trigger mode to "Normal".

Re: DATA Logging - TBS1202B

If you need to record data up to 1 hour, the TBS1202B is not the instrument to use. At the slowest time recording of 50 sec/div (slowest setting) and with 10 divisions, you can capture 500 seconds of data (50 x 10 =500) which is about 8 minutes of data. That is the maximum data length the TBS1202B w...

Re: USB Not Recognised

You do not need the THS3000 drivers for the MDO3104. The MDO3104 will load the USB drivers to your pc when it is connect via USB. Are you using the USB connector on the back as that is the USB port for communication? Also is the USB port, under the Utility menu for I/O set for computer or is it set ...

Re: MSO58 Setting the Time (Clock Display)

Try the following:

Connect to live LAN connection
In the Utility menu, under I/O, make sure you have a valid LAN connection.
Then under the LAN I/O, select “LAN Reset”
Then wait for instrument to re-establish date and time (this could take up to 1 hour or so to re-synchronize.)

Re: AFG3022C-AFG3011C error codes

Does the AFG exhibit the errors when no load is attached, and you run the Diagnostics self-test under the Utility menu? If the errors are shown in the diagnostics, they would need repair. Are you changing the load impedance on the AFG output? The AFG output impedance is 50 ohms. If you connect a loa...
