• RE: 2245AST Updates to manuals

    Hello ,
    The 2245 and 2246 went out of production in about 1987. The last manual I see for them was from 1987
    This web site is a good place to look for information on older products.

    The 2245A and 2246A went out of production in about 1994. The last manual I see for them was from 1989

  • RE: TMS260 Software Package Download

    Hello ,
    Unfortunately, all I could find for software for the TMS260 was that it came on a 3.5in Floppy disk, and it was discontinued in 1999.

  • RE: Replacement process and cost for TV220 to replace broken screen?

    The TV220 went out of production in 2000 and there was no replacement. We no longer provide any type of repair option on this instrument. The display itself is also supply depleted. Sorry I don't have better news for you. Have a good day.

  • RE: Power Factor Display

    The PA1000 does not have a way to differentiate between leading and lagging power factor. Though you could determine it using the waveform view.

  • RE: Disposing of my TFS3031

    Disposal Of Tektronix Products

    Thank you for your inquiry regarding the proper disposal of Tektronix products. Tektronix's manufactures a large number of products and is unable to provide specific disposal instruction for each product. Hopefully the following will satisfy your information needs.
    Generally, Tektronix products are similar in their makeup to other electronic equipment on the market. Our products may contain electron tubes or Cathode Ray Tubes (CRT). The CRTs consist primarily of glass, ceramic, stainless steel, and nickel. The fritted assemblies of the CRTs, and some of the glasses contain lead. Various phosphors are used, depending on the tube type. A minute quantity of barium is in the cathode. Circuit board assemblies in Tektronix products contain lead solder and copper. Other components within the products may contain small amounts of cadmium, tin or nickel as corrosion inhibitors. Some products may also contain nickel cadmium (NiCad) batteries. Mercury may be present in minute quantities in fluorescent light sources. Arsenic is a silicon dopant used in the manufacture of some integrated circuits and, therefore, may be present in trace amounts in some of our products. The presence of these materials does not present a hazard through normal handling and use.
    Although Tektronix products are not considered to be hazardous or toxic in normal use, casual disposal of these devices, the CRTs in particular, may be inadvisable. Specifically, higher than permitted levels of lead may be leached out of the CRT envelope materials when the CRT is subjected to the Toxicity Characteristic Leachate Procedure (TCLP) specified in 40 CFR § 261, Appendix II. There may also be local restrictions on the disposal of CRTs and electronic components in general or other applicable requirements that dictate how to manage these materials at the end of their life cycle. We recommend the following options that may apply to your situation:
    1. If the products are in working condition, and are not waste to be disposed of, they can possibly be returned to Tektronix as product. Check with your Product Support Representative on this option.
    2. If the products are waste to be disposed of, but are still intact (e.g., the CRT is not detached from the device), the entire device can be shipped to:

    Tektronix RAMS
    M/S 13-200
    13489 SW Karl Braun Dr.
    Beaverton Or. 97077

    Note: RAMS may not be able to accommodate large volumes or pieces of equipment. If the equipment is other than an a single oscilloscope, logic analyzer or other small test and measurement device, pre-arrangements for return should be made with the RAMS manager at (503) 627-4253

    3. If the product is waste, and the individual components no longer constitute an integral piece of equipment as described in item #2 above, the components of the product should be managed in accordance with your companies waste management practice and all applicable regulations. We recommend that CRTs be managed as a hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) or other applicable regulations.

    Please contact us if you have any further questions.

  • RE: Y400 IN1 option use


    Thank you for contacting Tektronix. The Y400 went out of long term product support in 2009. The Y400 was part of the Communication group here at Tektronix and that group went away in 2009. We no longer have anyone with experience on these items.

    Support and parts are no longer available from Tektronix. Some customers have had success using one or more of these contacts for manuals:
