Network-based Lab Management Solution

The 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.



Increase Lab Efficiency, Connectivity, Workflow and Automation

The centralized control of instruments enabled by the TekSmartLab solution dramatically improves the classroom and lab experience for students, instructors and lab managers.

  • 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


This 3 minute video was originally published for the 2015 version of TekSmartLab. Since that time, there have been a few updates and changes but the concept, features and benefits remain the same.



In this 15 minute video from 2015, you wil learn about the TekSmartLab network-based Instrument Management Solution designed to aid professors in monitoring classroom oscilloscope lab activities. The video covers the following topics:

  • New requests from teaching labs
  • TekSmartLab introduction
  • TekSmarLab site introduction
  • FAQs
  • Summary

Since 2015, there have been a few updates and changes but again, the concept, features and benefits remain the same.


TLS3000 Lab Instrument Management Software

Key features

  • Wi-Fi networking
  • Single software controls up to 120 instruments
  • Intuitive laboratory layout emulation
  • Instant remote configuration of large fleets of instruments


  • Basic teaching laboratory
  • Electronic engineering laboratory

In traditional basic teaching labs, connecting instruments to a network is challenging. Building an internal network through cables is tedious, and most of the instruments do not have a LAN port. Tektronix TekSmartLabTM is different from other solutions because it connects instruments to a network by converting USB ports to Wi-Fi ports. An industry first wireless lab instrument management solution, TekSmartLab supports up to 120 instruments (30 benches) on a single platform.


Intuitive setup and operation

The TekSmartLab platform can be easily set up without any LAN cables or instrument configuration. The graphical interface of TekSmartLab is easy to learn. The  application lets you emulate the layout of benches in a laboratory, making it easy for professors to find and control the instruments associated with bench numbers.


Laboratory Layout Emulation.

Layout of benches in a laboratory can be emulated in an intuitive way, so professors can easily find and control the instruments with their bench numbers.
