TekSmartLab is the industry's first network-based lab instrument management solution for quickly setting up and efficiently managing basic electronics in engineering laboratories at colleges and universities.
- Supports up to 600 instruments (100 test benches) on a single platform
- Records and displays instrument asset information, providing better information for classroom scheduling and decisions on energy consumption or lab equipment investments
- Retrieve test results wirelessly with a smart device
The centralized control of instruments enabled by the TekSmartLab solution dramatically improves the classroom and lab experience for students, instructors and lab managers.
The TBX3000A connects and controls instruments through USB cables, and communicates with the TSL3000B software on the lab server via the wireless network.
On the lab server, the TSL3000B communicates with the TBX3000A on each bench. The TSL3000B gives instructors centralized control of large fleets of instruments and gives students the ability to retrieve and save the test results online.
|System can be setup via Wi-Fi and instruments are recognized automatically when connected to the system.||Easy to setup the system without laying LAN cables and configuring instruments.|
|Supports most of the Tektronix/Keithley teaching lab instruments, even those discontinued within 5 years.||Easy to upgrade existing labs to TekSmartLab without purchasing new instruments.|
|Instant remote configuration of large fleets of instruments, such as setting parameters, disabling autoset, updating courseware, etc.||Minimize the workloads for routing works.|
|Enables remote monitoring and control of all the instruments within the lab.||Centralized monitoring and providing remote assistance to students instantly.|
|Students can retrieve the test results wirelessly, edit and submit test reports online via their mobiles or laptops.||Keeps the test reports’ formats consistent, making it possible to review/export the test results in the future and providing a paperless process.|
|Instrument asset info including model number, serial number, location and utilization time is recorded automatically.||Dramatically increases the efficiency with high accuracy of instrument asset information.|

In traditional teaching labs, connecting instruments to a network can be challenging, building an internal network through cables is tedious, and many lab instruments do not have a LAN port. Tektronix TekSmartLab is different.
On each bench, the TBX3000A connects and controls instruments through USB cables, and communicates with the TSL3000B software on the lab server via the wireless network. The TBX3000A has a LAN port (standard), and can support a Wi-Fi connection when equipped with a compatible USB-Wi-Fi dongle. On the lab server, the TSL3000B communicates with the TBX3000A on each bench. The TSL3000B gives instructors centralized control of large fleets of instruments and gives students the ability to retrieve and save the test results online. The following shows a sample setup of a TekSmartLab system with 15 benches and 60 instruments connected through Wi-Fi.
