Hobbyist and a retired engineer and possibly a test equipment addict, though, searching for the equipment to test for that.

With my limited electronics knowledge I'm sure I could blow one of those scopes in short order.

Could have used some better equipment to try and decode the signal in order to hack my Greenworks 60V mower.

Can't wait for the "I'm in" thread:  I'm shifting careers from engineering to education, and I'm gonna need more lab equipment!

EDU34450A 5.5 digit multimeter:
http://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/EDU34450-90002.pdf

Shame it's not a 6.5 digit (and then of course people will want longer and longer), but with the graphing features in modern bench multimeters, should be great. I've been thinking the Keithley's seem a little nicer, but I love the big screens, really helps when you don't have the instrument right there with you.

EDU33212A Function Generator:
https://docs.rs-online.com/d5bd/A700000007406012.pdf
This looks pretty good, for my own personal use 30MHz of square would come in handy, but I have generators that do that fine (and a few arb's, this is one I'd skip).

EDU36311A Power Supply
https://docs.rs-online.com/3089/A700000007406024.pdf

If this has basic graphing of voltage & current it'd be great, and I'm currently lacking a keysight bench supply, all my HP/Agilent linear ones are now gone, and whilst I have two mainframes for the 6700 series, they're not the greatest to use as bench supplies.

Well RIP, couldn't verify my profile on Odysee, since it looks like it is required, to have viewable profile.
- Phone number verification not available in the region.
- Credit card verifcation "IP mismatch".
Now waiting for the manual form verification thing to be done lol.

Interesting gear indeed! I have seen oscilloscopes and function gens in that formfactor but it is the first time I see a multimeter and power supply looking like that.

The Dave’s dumpster has a worm hole connection with Keysight HQ!

And yes I'm in, probably with my mass the worm hole will collapse to a black hole and suck all test equipment.

OK. People from Spain and Italy, FORGET IT!.,... We do not belong to the club.

first I am not using this as an entry as this is my first post here somehow
but have to say that I agree stackability would be very nice feature to add EX to the edu line and the lower trim ones often used in home labs where space is a premium
as for the teardown I would like the powersupply to be first as I personally feel they are the hardest to "cut corners" on and are often very pricey for good "lab quality" units ++ they are more interesting in design - not saying I dont want a look under the "hood" of the other pieces

All my scopes are Tek. It's about time for Keysight to donate me one of theirs ;)

Better to have small shelves to fit the instruments reasonably tight, just enough for good airflow. Much more stable than stackable light weight tall and short instruments... I have a recessed shelf right over my desk for the small, modern instruments, like my humble scope and a few others mostly home built, and a deeper one on top of that for the more vintage larger ones... Like an analog PS and a matching signal gen.

If I don't know how it works, I prefer not to turn it on.

Hi Dave! does the youtube comment for participation have to say "I'm in" and nothing else? or comments with something after the "I'm in" will also be counted?

Thank you!

Count me in as liking the cosmetic design and uniform form factor.
Really a handsome quartet of test gear.
I almost feel like a traitor living here virtually in the shadow of the Tektronix campus.

What a magical dumpster you have there!   :clap:

Mee too :)
As an advanced hobbyist and low lever professional, one never has enough good instruments, especially a multi-channel lab PSU would be sweet.

Hey Dave, Thanks for doing the giveaway, I know tons of people that really need TE and while you might not be able to help them all even helping some of these up and coming engineers will make a difference. Of course I'm in like flynn too. I am a 16-year-old student from Greece wanting to get an EE degree,
I have been developing recently laser drivers of all topologies and sizes(constant current SMPSs) An open-source 1-30v 0-5A CC CV PSU specifically designed with safety features to keep the sensitive laser diodes safe and it also connects to a second board (stacked below the output module) With some 16 bit ADCs not only to read voltage and current but to also make some basic graphs over time with their 100ks/s rate. Any microcontroller can be used with them that supports SPI.
