4 channel Keysight 1000x series scope
« on: November 11, 2018, 12:23:32 pm »
I got a invite from the local keysight distributor for a Christmas sundowner  and product showcase. They mentioned a 4 channel 1000x series scope, but I can’t find any sign of such a thing on the web. Has anyone else come across anything?

I have a rigol 1054z at home which has been fine, then we got a few 2 channel 1000x series scopes at work and they are in a whole different league while not being “that” much more expensive.

At work we only need 2ch, but at home I sometimes need 3 or 4 so I’d told myself that’s why I’m keeping the rigol. If they do bring out a 4 channel and it’s not much more than the 2 channel, would that be a game changer for the low end scopes or would it still not affect the super low price point?

I have an uncle that works at Nintendo, and he told me...  ;)

(80's kid flashbacks, sorry)

But this distributor, do they also sell a certain other brand, starting with an S, that sells a 1000X series?

On your question regarding price, just looking very briefly at a local distribitur gives me a 25% price bump estimate.

Not the S brand, definitely keysight.

New Keysight 4-channel 1000X-series oscilloscopes - product launch!

That’s the line from the email.

I know it says product launch, but most of the time there’s info out on the web before any actual launch.

Yes, they should drop the 2000X line in that case, it's really struggling to hold any mainstream market share at all. But it could still be doing fine in the education sector?

Perhaps, or they are prepping for a refesh of the X-line? Say, pushing a new 10bit arch based on the S-series downstream to meet R&S new offerings?

But first things first.

It would make sense. IIRC the 2000X was the first MZ4 scope to be launched, so the first MZ5 product is likely to be at that level, too.

Have you heard anything about the 4 channel scope Dave?

The event is in a few weeks. I’ll try to get along and post info on here unless someone finds more info first.

Please do! I'm about to pull trigger on a 1000x scope but if they're releasing new models in a couple of weeks then I'll wait to see what they have to offer.

Nope, but I've asked.
Keysight are usually keen to let me see stuff first, so it's probably unlikely they wouldn't tell me about a new low cost scope.

While there have been examples of black devices before, Keysight made it their new standard look a while back. Since that moment all the Chinese are tripping over themselves to update the product line. You can't be any good if you don't copy the market leader, now can you?  ;D

I’ll be curious to see if they have a unit to show at this evening in a few weeks if there have been delays.

Is it strange they haven’t notified you Dave, or is it because of the delays? Any chance of a tear down unit being sent your way?

So, uh, @PTR_1275 can you forward me that invite? I'd love to see it  >:D [e-mail removed]

I can also neither confirm nor deny any rumors at this point, but I can assure you our favorite YouTubers will get an early look at anything coming out in that space.

I can also say that Christmas will not come early, and - love it or hate it - this video may be appropriate:

By the way, if a Keysight representive may be reading along. This is the perfect class of instrument for a nice worldwide give-away, to have various people from various corners of the world with different interests show the world why this might be a very nice device for the serious hobbyist and professional alike.

That's a given, but why stop there? This is a release for the masses, as far as that applies to Keysight kit. That should be celebrated with the masses! R&S gave away their new oscilloscopes before and Keysight did the same with their power supplies and both times it's been received rather well I'd say.

I was told prices are already in the pricelists that the distributors have.

4channel 70MHz AU$1348 plus tax
70MHz with generator output AU$1626 plus tax.

Software license upgradable to 200MHz and the usual extra money for decoders.

Doesn’t look like it has individual vertical adjustment for each channel, but the photo I was sent looks like a blown up thumbnail.

Had a quick play with one at Electronica and a chat with one of their US guys.
I didn't find anything obvuously wrong, knobs maybe a little small, and might have been better in a colour that gave some contrast with the black.
Uart decode goes to 20Mbaud.
Screen feels a bit small once you have the MSO on
Mso probe has an acvtive head and 0.1" pin header, and they supply single wire probe leads, not paired with gnd so could have inductance issues.
Us guy also thought it nuts thay they did a 2ch version.
Has HDMI out, which for some reason has option to diwnscale to VGA and 720xsomething-is there any hdmi device that would need that?

 
sorry, wrong thread - was talking about the Rigol!
