  • The Tektronix catalog specifies the P6106A for use with the 7A16A and 7A26 modules.
    Other modules that can use this probe are:
    DC503A, DC5009, DC5010 as well as the 475 and 485 oscilloscopes.

    The P6106A is a miniature, 10X-attenuating passive probe that is compatible with general purpose oscilloscopes having a 1 MΩ input impedance.

    The P6106A is compatible with Tektronix oscilloscopes that automatically detect and display the attenuation factor of the attached probe.

    The P6106A has a ground-reference push button that momentarily grounds the probe output. This feature allows you to quickly identify the oscilloscope display associated with one of several attached probes as well as making ground-reference measurements easier.

    The P6106A is available with the following cable lengths:
    Standard2 meters
    Option 011 meter

    Each probe option is fully compatible with Tektronix accessories for miniature probes.
