Product Details

Tektronix Current Probe & Clamp

The Tektronix current probe amplifier is a state of the art device used with the Tektronix TCP404XL probe. It also seamlessly integrates with the Tektronix TDS series oscilloscopes. When used with this probe, the current probe amplifier provides a wide range of current measurement capabilities. Also, it spans the gap between low-level milliamp measurements to very high current levels for simple and easy current measurements and calculations.

Features and Benefits

AC/DC measurement capabilities
DC– 100MHz
Automatic scaling and units 2– oscilloscope on-screen readout of magnitude and amps reduces measurement errors with no more hand calculations
AC/DC input coupling
Low insertion impedance reduces device under test loading
Split-core construction allows easy circuit connection
Status indicators provide visual operating status and notification of potential error conditions– degauss, probe open, overload, not terminated into 50Ohm, noncompatible probe type
Lower DC drift and noise allows improved low-level current measurements
