  • Manufacturer: Tektronix
  • Condition: Used
  • Discontinued: Yes

  • Description

    Discontinued. Replaced with the P6243 Active Voltage Probe.

    The P6205 Probe is part of the Tektronix line of Low Circuit Loading Signal Acquisition probes for CSA (Communications Signal Analyzers), DSA (Digitizing Signal Analyzers), 11000 Series and the TDS Family of Oscilloscopes.

    The P6205 is designed with FET devices for its inputs, which allows very high input resistance values and low input capacitances.

    Active FET probes provide a wide linear dynamic input range for accessing most digital device families using today's logic voltage levels.

    Power for the P6205 is supplied by the CSA, DSA, TDS and 11000 Series mainframes through the TEKPROBE BNC Interface, eliminating the need for extra cabling and/or external power supplies.

    Probe information such as type, serial number, attenuation factor, offset scale factor, input resistance and termination resistance required is communicated through the TEKPROBE Interface between the Active Probe and the CSA, DSA and 11000 Series mainframes. This information is used by these oscilloscope mainframes during the scope initialization sequence and measurement analysis.

    *1 Interface/Readout/Identify Code: (TPB = TEKPROBE™ BNC)/(TPS = TEKPROBE SMA)/(BNC = CONVENTIONAL BNC)/(Y = Yes)/(N = No).

    *2 11000 SERIES = 11A32/11A34/11A52/11A71/11A72/11A81.

    • Low Input C, High Input R – Minimizes circuit under test loading
    • Probe Power Directly from CSA, DSA, TDS or 11000 Series TEKPROBE BNC Interfaces - Means no additional cables or power supplies required*1
    • Readout Coding for 10X Attenuation – Reduces confusion and errors in measurement readings
    • Gold-plated Replaceable Probe Tips – Improved electrical connections and lower maintenance costs
    • Miniature Size Accessories – Provides wide range of circuit attachments
