QUICK SPECS / PHOTOS
  • Bandwidth : DC to 35 MHz
  • Attenuation : 10X
  • Input Resistance : 10 MΩ
  • Input Capacitance : approx. 6.0pF (3.5 ft. cable)
  • Scope Input Resis : 1 MΩ
  • Compensation Range : 15pF to 55pF
  • Readout Pin : Yes (5000 series only)
  • Ground Ref : No

  • Max Rated Voltage : 1.5 KV RMS
  • COMPATIBILITY

    Catalogs reference the 5000 series modules, especially in reference to the special grounding clip
    P6060 readout is NOT compatible with CRT readout.
    The 1989 Tektronix catalog also recommends this probe for use with the 2300 series.
    The 1982 Catalog associated th3 P6060 with the AM502, SC501, SC502 and SC503.

    CHARACTISTICS

    The P6060 is a precision passive probe with 10X attenuation, for use with TEKTRONIX low and mid-frequency oscilloscopes used in differential applications. The precise attenuation also provides greater accuracy for single-ended input applications, such as amplitude measurements with a differential comparator. The probe can be compensated for use with any amplifier input having a nominal input capacitance of 15 to 55 pF and input resistance of 1 MΩ.

    The BNC-type connector utilizes a special grounding clip to shift the deflection factor indicator to 10X normal reading in 5000-Series oscilloscopes.
