Value Instrument range from Rohde & Schwarz

August 08, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Rohde & Schwarz and its Hameg Instruments subsidiary have introduced a range of favourably-priced test and measurement equipment bearing the new joint "Value Instruments by Rohde & Schwarz" label, that deliver, the company says, high-quality test and measurement performance at low prices

This grouping of products from R&S' basic range of precise, reliable and cost-effective instruments under the Value Instruments label comprises, in addition to spectrum analysers and oscilloscopes, EMC precompliance products as well as power supplies from Rohde & Schwarz and its HAMEG Instruments subsidiary.

Value Instruments is the premium provider's way of addressing not only large corporations, but also specifically those users from medium-sized companies who in the past considered Rohde & Schwarz products too expensive. Roland Steffen, Head of the Test and Measurement Division and Executive Vice President at Rohde & Schwarz, explained, "In development departments of large electronics companies and also in small service labs, the task at hand does not always involve highly complex measurements, and users do not always need high-end T&M solutions. What they need is reliable, precise, general purpose measuring equipment. It is exactly here where Rohde & Schwarz comes in with its Value Instruments. The products offer practical features, good measurement characteristics and ease of use. And they are also ideal for limited budgets."

The instruments are available through the company's direct sales network, and authorised distributors as well as the R&S Surf-In webstore available in certain countries.
