The ideal power supplies for your lab

  • Doug Wong, Engineer
    "For me, this instrument represents a paradigm shift in how I troubleshoot. It combines so much powerful functionality into one instrument and streamlines the tasks so efficiently that it will get used far more than my previous instruments. Features like the deep storage memory, high resolution A/D, 4 channels plus logic probes and FFT capability allow me to troubleshoot problems I couldn’t tackle before."

  • "Both better and faster."
  • Shabaz, Engineer
    "The performance and feature mix is excellent because it provides all engineers with a large suite of capabilities. The FPC1500 is relevant for working with any modern circuitry including diverse topics like power supplies, wireless charging, electronic circuit tracing and troubleshooting, component characterization, wiring and network installations, and myriad other things you can think of – it’s all RF!"

    FPC1500 element14 RoadTest
  • James Lewis, Engineer
    "Plenty of features and functionality for its price class. The FPC1500 excels at both the low and high end. It is not often you get the advantages of both better and faster in the same instrument."
  • Dr. Cosmin Iorga
    "I like that it has a large screen, the screen’s sharpness and clarity, the multitude of built-in functions and measurements and the clear help documentation, displayed directly on the screen and easily accessible for each button and function of the oscilloscope. This help implementation is a great feature for students or anyone who is a beginner in using oscilloscopes. All these features make the R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscope 'a piece of jewelry' in my lab."
