B&K Precision’s 2540 and 2542 DSOs Win EN-Genius Network’s 2009 Product of the Year Award


YORBA LINDA, CA, April 26, 2010 -- B&K Precision is pleased to announce that its Models 2540 and 2542 Digital Storage Oscilloscopes have been awarded EN-Genius' 2009 Product of the year.  EN-Genius recognized these models in the category of Best Value DSOs for exceptional product merit and performance.

Models 2540 (60 MHz) and 2542 (100 MHz) 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.  Both models are ideal oscilloscopes for use in education, design, training, field service, maintenance, manufacturing and quality control.

In their review, EN-Genius opined, "With their 8-bit vertical-resolution input amplifiers, 1/4-VGA color LCDs, USB (Universal Serial Bus) connectivity to PC-hosted analysis and display software, auto-calibration, and automatic set-up and measurement hooks, B&K's latest storage scopes compete head on with pricier instruments from the likes of Tektronix, Yokogawa, Agilent...In fact, these B&K scopes may very well establish a benchmark for just how far along entry-level oscilloscope technology has advanced."

EN-Genius's final analysis: "...Judging by past experience with low cost B&K instrumentation, I would argue that you would get your money's worth, and then some."
