Textronix 2200 Series Oscilloscopes

There are several different oscilloscopes in the Tektronix 2200 series family. Some we can recommend and some we cannot. These all have Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) screens, so make absolutely certain you see a picture of the screen that has a bright and focused CRT. Otherwise let it go! You don't need that headache.

Tektronix 2235 - Recommended

  • Expect to Pay $700 Refurbished
  • 2 Channels
  • DC to 100 MHz Bandwidth
  • Integrated Counter / Timer
  • 2 mV Sensitivity
  • Advanced Trigger System
  • 5 ns/div Max. Sweep Rate

  • Large, Bright CRT
  • Light Weight
  • Easy to Use

The 2235 scope replaced the 265A model. It's a little newer and the most reliable model in the 2200 series. They are also not nearly as heavy as Tek switched to a switching power supply. Tektronix made some significant advancements in the electronics of 2200 series scopes resulting in improved accuracy and making it simple to use.



Tektronix 2236 - Recommended

Tektronix 2236 UsedOscilloscope.org Highlights

  • Expect to Pay $250 - $400 Used
  • Expect to Pay $900 Refurbished
  • Same highlights as the 2235 + DMM

The 2236 improved upon the 2235 but added some microprocessor driven waveform analysis. The big added feature on the 2236 is the Digital MultiMeter (DMM). It also made the counter and timer functions much easier to use by utilizing the B trigger to automatically calculate the different measurements desired.



Tektronix 2205

This o-scope, along with several other 2200 series scopes, were all made in the orient. Today that's not a bad thing, but back in the day they had some serious quality issues, so we don't recommended purchasing the 2205.



Tektronix 2225

The 2225, like the 2205 o-scope, were all made in the orient. They also suffer from the same quality issues that plagued other scopes made in this area of the world back in the 1980's, so we don't recommended purchasing the 2225 IF there are working 2235 or 2236 scopes available.
