    The P6053B probe is designed primarily for use with Textronix 7A-series 1 MΩ vertical amplifier plug-in units.


    CHARACTISTICS
    The P6053B is a miniature, passive, fast-rise 10X attenuation probe designed for use with Tektronix 7A-series vertical amplifier plug-in units. The probe can be compensated for use with other oscilloscopes or plug-in units having an input capacitance of 15 to 24 pF (paralleled by 1 MΩ).

    A trace identification pushbutton on the body of the probe permits the user to determine which trace of a multi-trace display includes the signal from the P6053B Probe. A coding ring on the BNC output connector actuates the Volts/Div readout of the oscilloscope mainframe to include the 10X attenuation of the probe. The connector is compatible with all BNC input connectors.

    The probe consists of a small-diameter probe body assembly, 1 3.5-foot, or 6-foot cable, and a compensation box with a BNC connector.
