Question :

How can I try out optional features for my 6 Series MSO before I buy them?

Answer :

Most field upgrades for the optional features for the 6 Series MSO are also available for a one-time, 30-day free trial. These are available simply by requesting a trial software license and installing the node-locked license in the instrument.

There are free trials available for these general-purpose instrument feature upgrades:

The simplest way to find these available trial licenses is to select the Upgrades tab on the product web page https://www.tek.com/oscilloscope/6-series-mso-mixed-signal-oscilloscope and click on the Request trial license link for the free license you would like to try.

You will be presented with a web page where you need to enter the instrument Model Name, Serial Number, and Host ID. The instrument Model, Serial Number, and Host ID appear at the top of the instrument’s Help-> About menu. Click on the Generate License button.

You will then be presented with a web page with instructions for installing the license. If you want the license immediately, click on the DOWNLOAD YOUR TRIAL LICENSE button, save the file to a USB drive, and insert the drive into one of the USB host ports on the oscilloscope. Otherwise, you will receive an email with the trial license file attached. Save the file to a USB drive, and insert the drive into one of the USB host ports on the oscilloscope.

Select Help-> About on your oscilloscope, tap the “Install License” button, navigate to the license file, and tap the Open button. After rebooting the instrument, return to Help-> About and verify that the newly-installed license appears in the table.

Finally, you can get a free Digital Voltmeter and Trigger Frequency Counter upgrade (SUP6-DVM) just for registering your product. Log onto https://www.tek.com/register6mso, click the “REGISTER YOUR PRODUCT” button, log into your MyTek account, enter the oscilloscope’s Model Name and Serial Number and click the “ADD PRODUCT” button. You will receive an email with the SUP6-DVM license file attached.
