    The 1973 catalog mates the P6058 with the 7D13. The 1977 catalog also mates the P6058 with the DM501.
    CHARACTISTICS

    The P6058 Temperature Probe is used with the DM 501 or the 7D13 for sensing temperature from -55*#176;C to +150°C. The temperature sensing element consists of a transistor and is installed in nose tip that plugs into the end of the probe body. Temperature is measured by applying the flat surface of the probe's tip to the device being measured.

    Besides measuring temperature, the P6058 can function as an electrical probe for resistance, current, and voltage measurements to 500 V. Part number 010-0260-00 includes the accessories required for these measurements (Part 010-259-00 is for the Temperature only version). For voltage measurements, a twelve inch and a five inch "common" (low) strap is provided, and is attached by threading into a hole in the side of the probe body. There is no external ground on the P6058 body. "Ground" or the low potential point of the circuit under test is obtained via the common strap or connector, which is a floating common that has no tie to chassis ground. This lead may be floated at up to 1500 VDC away from chassis ground. The retractable hook-tip must be used on the probe when voltage measurements are made.
