P3010 P6101B passive voltage probes

Passive voltage probes are the most commonly used oscilloscope probe. Other specialty probes expand the range and functionality of an oscilloscope as a measurement system; but a general-purpose, passive voltage probe, is the working end of the oscilloscope, a tool used every day by engineers and technicians.

Two years of customer research, design innovation, and an exhaustive test program resulted in a most remarkable family of oscilloscope probes. This family of passive voltage probes is specifically designed for Tektronix analog and digital portable oscilloscopes. The 1X and 10X switchable probes combine the same high-quality electrical performance that customers expect from Tektronix with a new rugged mechanical design.

These probes are encased in a resilient, molded rubber body that is virtually indestructible. They are lighter in weight, more comfortable to hold, and more reliable than modular probe styles. The probes' replaceable tips are designed to withstand up to 20 pounds of force. Patented integral strain relief allows complete freedom of movement while providing superior cable flex. Each probe has received UL safety certification and meets MIL-T-28800, Class 3, environment specifications - something portable oscilloscope users will appreciate.

The P3010, and P6101B probes are designed to complement the Tektronix family of portable DSO and ART instruments. The core of each probe's performance is supplied by a Tektronix HYBRID/SMT device.

The instrumentation experience possessed by Tektronix provides an extra margin of quality and reliability to the molded probes that is not commonly available to probe manufacturers. These molded probes have been designed and tested to support the overall system performance and measurement quality that Tektronix oscilloscopes guarantee.

Through the introduction of the molded probes, Tektronix has set a new standard for passive voltage probe styling, performance, and durability.
