What are some of the benefits of the TekVPI probe interface?
The biggest benefits of the TekVPI™ probe interface are versatility and ease of use.
Oscilloscopes with TekVPI interface support a wide range of probes including TekVPI probes, BNC and TekProbe-BNC Level 1 probes, and TekProbe-BNC Level 2 probes (via a TPA-BNC adapter).
When TekVPI probes are used, the ease of use benefits are:
- Reliable and easy single-handed probe attachment and release of the probe from the oscilloscope.
- Intelligent bi-directional oscilloscope to probe communication. This allows for quick and easy access to the oscilloscope’s probe menu for probe setup, control and monitoring via a button on the probe. Ease of probe setup includes easy deskew, easy calibration, built-in degauss for current probes, and built-in autozero function for differential probes.
- The intelligent bi-directional communication also enables remote control commands of probe setup to simplify remote or automated testing applications.
- Direct connection of 30A and 150A current probes to oscilloscope channel inputs without the need for external power supplies or amplifiers*.
