  • The Tektronix catalog specifies the P6105A for use with the 7A15A, 7A18 and 7A18A modules.
    Other oscilloscopes that can use this probe are the 475 and 485.

    The P6105A is a miniature, 10X passive probe for use with dc to 100 MHz oscilloscopes with an input capacitance range of 15 to 35 pF and an input resistance of 1 MΩ.

    A coding pin on the BNC output connector activates the volts/division readout encoding circuit of the oscilloscope to include the 10X attenuation of the probe. The compensaiton box houses a network that provides optimum transient response. The probe can be low-frequency compensated by adjusting the variable capacitor through the opening in the compensaiton box housing. A ground reference push button on the probe head permits the user to obtain a ground reference or to identify the trace of a multitrace display.

    The P6105A is available in three lengths: 1 meter, 2 meters, and 3 meters.
