Surrey-based Caltest Instruments has become the latest UK distributor to stock the test and measurement equipment manufactured by German company Rohde & Schwarz. With a focus on those products most closely allied to those it currently stocks, Caltest will concentrate on the supply of R&S spectrum analysers, signal generators and the latest range of powerful R&S digital oscilloscopes, the flagship R&S RTO and mid-range R&S RTM.
The RTO features the first real-time digital triggering system to increase sensitivity and functionality. Models are available at bandwidths of 600MHz up to 4GHz, with two or four channel operation and continuous acquisition up to a market leading 1,000,000 waveforms/second. Combining sophisticated analysis functions and an intuitive user-interface with touch-screen technology, the R&S RTO is a powerful tool for fault finding and error analysis.
The RTM shares the intuitive operation of its larger sibling and is available in two or four channel models at a bandwidth of 500MHz, offering Rohde & Schwarz quality in a compact package that is ideal for everyday test and measurement applications, or as a portable unit.
David Sheath, General Manager of Caltest Instruments, said: ‘The name of Rohde and Schwarz is synonymous with high quality manufacturing and precision instruments. When they moved into the scope market a couple of years ago people expected great things; the RTO and RTM models are awesome bits of kit that have more than justified those expectations and I’m pleased that Caltest has an opportunity to offer these impressive instruments to our growing customer base, in addition to a variety of other high quality T&M equipment from this highly respected manufacturer.’
