  • The P6021 current probe converts an alternating current waveform to a voltage that can be displayed and measured on an oscilloscope display. The probe provides accurate current measurements over a wide range of frequencies, and allows you to measure current without breaking the circuit.

    The P6021 probe is compatible with general purpose oscilloscopes having a 1 MΩ input impedance. The P6021 probe comes with a passive termination that matches oscilloscope and probe impedance, optimizes the probe performance, and provides two sensitivity settings.

    In the standard configuration, the P6021 probe comes with a 5-foot cable and termination. The following option is also available.

    Option 03 - 9-foot cable with termination

    The P6021 current probe consists of a curent transformer mounted in the nose of the probe head case, an impedance-matching network, and an internal switch to disconnect the transformer shield from ground.

    As indicated on the probe body, the turns ratio of the P6021 is 125:1. This refers to the number of windings in the secondary of the probe transformer.

    The P6021 termination consists of a 62.5Ω impedance-matching network to terminate the coaxial cable and a voltage divider that is switched in by a sensitivity control to change the sensitivity by a factor of five.l When the control is n the 2 mA/mV position, a 10 mA current signal in the conductor under test induces a 5 mV signal at the output of the termination. (This assumes that the termination is connected to a 1 MΩ input oscilloscope.)

    When the sensitivity control is in the 10 mA/mV position, a 10 mA current signal is attenuated to induce a 1 mV signal at the output of the termination.
