    as compatible with the P6101A

    CHARACTISTICS

    The P6101A is one of a new series of modular probes. The probe divides into three modules (probe head, cable, and connector/compensation box). The modules snap together making maintenance and repair less expensive, faster, and much easier. (The P6101A, since it is a 1X probe, does not have the compensation box).
    The P6101A is available in three color-coded lengths - blue for one meter, yellow for two meters, and red for three meters.
