    CHARACTISTICS

    The P6051 is an active (FET) probe providing DC to 1 GHz bandwidth. The low input-capacitance of the probe permits coupling of high-frequency signals to an oscilloscope input with minimum loading on the circuit under test.

    The P6051 is designed primarily for use with 50-Ω sampling instruments. An external 50-Ω termination may be used to adapt the probe output to 1-MΩ inputs. The probe also features a DC-offset control for measuring small AC signals with DC potentials up to 5 volts (200V with the 40X attenuator).

    The P6051 can be powered from the probe power output of the 475, 485, 7500, 7700 and 7900-Series mainframes, also by the 015-0073-00 power supply or by the 1101 Accessory Power Supply.

    SPECIFICATIONS
    Electrical
    Attenuation :5X within 4%
    4X, 20X and 40X Attenuator heads are accurate within 1%
    Risetime :0.35 ns or less
    Bandwidth (-3 dB) :DC to 1 GHz
    Low frequency 3-dB point with AC-coupling capacitor is approximately 175 Hz.
    Input Resistance :1 MΩ with or without attenuators.
    Input Capacitance :Approximately 2.8 pF.
