    The P6054A Probe is a miniature, passive, fast-rise, 10X attenuation probe designed primarily for use with Tektronix oscilloscopes, such as 453, 453A, 454, 454A, and the 10A2A Plug-In Unit. The probe can be compensated for use with other oscilloscopes or plug-in units that have an input capacitance of 15 to 24 pF (paralleled by 1 MΩ).

    The probe consists of a small-diameter probe body assembly (especially useful in compact circuitry), a 3.5-foot, 6-foot, or 9-foot cable, and a compensating box with a BNC connector.

    A ground reference pushbutton on the body of the probe permits the user to obtain a ground reference or to determine which trace of a multitrace display includes the signal from the P6054A Probe.

    The compensating box houses a compensation network that provides optimum transient response when the probe is used with wideband oxcilloscopes. The probe can be low-frequency compensated to match the input of the associated instrument by adjusting the variable capacitor through the hole in the compensating box housing. Internal calibration adjustments provide high-frequency compensation. A snap-on cover gives access to the internal adjustments.
