Limited period offer to RS customers to replace any working oscilloscope or function generator with a new model from Tektronix at 15% discount

CORBY, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 21, 2012) - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products including batteries and safety boots, has launched an exclusive promotion on its range of oscilloscopes from Tektronix, a leading supplier of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation. The special offer enables RS customers to trade-in a working oscilloscope, signal generator or frequency/counter timer from any manufacturer and receive a 15% discount on a new model from the Tektronix range.

Available for a limited period until 31 May 2012, the trade-in scheme provides embedded system designers with a cost-efficient means of upgrading their test equipment with the latest generation of high-performance products from an industry-leading manufacturer.

Tektronix offers a comprehensive range of test and measurement instruments and application software to quickly find and diagnose problems in complex designs.
