    CHARACTISTICS

    The P6052 is a passive dual-attenuation probe designed for 30-MHz Tektronix oscilloscopes that feature scale factor readout and trace-identification functions. A sliding collar on the barrel of the probe selects 1X or 10X attenuation; a pushbutton actuates the trace-identify function. A coding ring on the probe BNC output connector couples the control signals to the main frame. The P6052 can be compensated for use with instruments having an input capacitance of 15 to 55 pF.
