Safe high voltage probe solutions for ground-referenced voltage testing. It is critical to safely and accurately capture real-time signal information from "elevated" or "floating" voltage systems. Our portfolio of high voltage probes provides the safety you need for single-ended, differential or isolated measurements.
The P5100A is a low input capacitance, high-voltage probe (2.5 kV) designed for higher-frequency applications. The probe can be compensated to match plug-ins and oscilloscopes with nominal input capacitances of 7-30 pF. A variety of screw-on accessories provide easy connection to the device-under-test.
The TPP0850 offers the industry's highest bandwidth probe (800 MHz) for high-voltage signals (up to 2500 Vp-p). This is ideal for testing power semiconductors and switch-mode power supplies, which continue to increase in switching speed to minimize power loss, creating a need for faster rise time, higher bandwidth, and higher voltage probes. The TPP0850 meets this need and can be used with switching transistor circuits operating at 1200 VRMS, above the voltage operating range of standard general-purpose probes. It will also be able to accommodate emerging power applications that will require even faster rise time capabilities.
In many applications, it is important to be able to isolate the measurement from earth ground and also to isolate the common voltage between channels. The P5150 or P5122, coupled with the TPS2000 and THS3000 Series digital storage oscilloscopes, deliver both the isolation for the measurement from earth ground and full isolation between the channels. The P5150 is the recommended probe for measuring ripple on high-voltage DC supplies. The P5122 probe should not be used on the TPS2000 Series oscilloscopes for AC-coupled measurements on signals with greater than 300 V DC offset.
For heavy-duty high-performance measurements of voltages over 2.5 kV, the P6015A is the industry standard. You can measure DC voltages up to 20 kVRMSand pulses up to 40 kV (peak, 100 ms duration). The 75 MHz bandwidth enables you to capture fast, high-voltage signals.
The P6015A uses an environmentally safe silicone compound for a dielectric and never needs refilling. Other features include: A 7-49 pF compensation range, small compensation box that fits on adjacent amplifier inputs, and a readout option for use with most Tektronix digital scopes. With the readout option, displayed voltage amplitude values will be the actual signal value rather than understated by a factor of 1,000.
Note: Using the readout version with other than Tektronix digital oscilloscopes may result in an erroneous readout display.
