The TCP0150 is a high performance and easy-to-use 150 A AC/DC current probe designed for use and direct connection to the TekVPI™ probe interface.

Key performance specifications
  • DC to 20 MHz bandwidth
  • 150 ARMS maximum current capability
  • 500 a peak pulse current capability
  • High accuracy with typically less than 1% DC gain error
  • Accurately measures current levels as low as 5 mA
Key features
  • Easy-to-Use and accurate AC/DC current measurements
  • Connects directly to oscilloscopes with the TekVPI™ probe interface
  • Low noise and DC drift
  • Provides automatic units scaling and readout on the oscilloscope's display
  • Remote GPIB/USB probe control through the oscilloscope
  • Split-core probe head construction allows easy connection to conductors
  • Easy to degauss and autozero
  • Setup controls and probe status and diagnostic indicators are provided on both the probe hardware and through an Easy-to-Access scope UI display menu
Applications
  • Power supplies
  • Semiconductor devices
