YORBA LINDA, CA, October 8, 2008 -- B&K Precision Corporation continues to grow its line of affordable dual channel Digital Storage Oscilloscopes (DSO) with the introduction of two new models: the 2540 (60 MHz) and 2542 (100 MHz). These are versatile and compact oscilloscopes delivering an unmatched combination of features, performance and value. Auto measurement functions and analog-style knobs make these oscilloscopes easy to use. Advanced triggering, digital filtering, waveform recorder, delayed sweep/zoom, mask testing, automatic measurements, and FFT functions provide the user with many options for troubleshooting and debugging.

The oscilloscopes come with PC software to easily capture, save, and analyze waveforms and measurement results and to remotely control the instruments via a virtual panel. At $940 for model 2540 and $1,155 for model 2542, these models are among the most aggressively-priced oscilloscopes on the market today. Both models are ideal oscilloscopes for use in education, design, training, field service, maintenance, manufacturing and quality control.

The many outstanding features of the 2540 and 2542 include:

  • Up to 100 MHz bandwidth, 1 GSa/s sample rate
  • 4000 point record length for each channel
  • One touch automatic setup for ease of use (Auto button)
