Tektronix FCA3000, FCA3100, and MCA3000 Counters and Analyzers

Tektronix introduced the FCA3000 and FCA3100 Series of timer/counter/analyzers and the MCA3000 Series of microwave counter/analyzers. Instruments such as the FCA and MCA Series are used for measurement and analysis of frequency, time or phase signal parameters in design, production, calibration labs or in field applications such as radar equipment monitoring and test. The FCA3000/3100 and MCA3000 Series are available now. Prices start at $2,450 U.S. MSRP and includes the Limited Tektronix Edition of LabVIEW SignalExpress from National Instruments and a trial version of TimeView modulation domain analysis software. All models are backed by a 3-year warranty.
