    ==========================================
    Tektronix P6138A Oscilloscope Probe. Small Geometry Tips - Easier Circuit Access Readout for 10X Attenuation Factor - Reduces Confusion and Errors in Measurement Readings Flexible Lightweight Cable - Easier to Use and Reduces Mechanical Stress to Device Under Test HYBRID/SMT Circuitry - Provides Improved Performance and Reliability Modularity - Provides Lower Cost of Ownership Compact Size Accessories - Provides Compatibility with Existing Adapters UL3111-1, CSA1010.1, ENG61010-2-031 (UL1244 - P6134C and P6137 only) Applications High and Low Frequency Relative Measurements for: Design Service Manufacturing The P613X family of oscilloscope probes sets the standard for high performance passive voltage probes. Continued growth of the family paces Tektronix' new series of high performance bench top oscilloscopes, the TDS500/600/700/3000/7000 Series and high performance portable oscilloscopes and the TDS400 Series. These probes feature modular construction, HYBRID/SMT circuitry, a smaller probe head/cable assembly than traditional passive probes, 10X attenuation readout encoding and a full complement of attachment accessories. Smaller probe tips and lightweight cable assemblies allow easy negotiation of dense circuitry or tight spaces. The compact probe head/tip assembly is compatible with the full line of compact accessories. When the Subminiature/Compact-to-Miniature probe tip adapter (013-0202-03) is installed over the probe head/tip, the P6138A and P6139A probes are fully compatible with all miniature tip accessories. The P6139A probe has been specifically designed for the TDS500/600/700/3000/7000 Series of oscilloscopes to provide 500 MHz bandwidth at the probe tip, while presenting an 8 pF/10 megaohm input impedance to the circuit under test. Similarly, the P6138A's design meets the TDS400 Series signal path requirements, helping to ensure the highest accuracy ever in a general purpose oscilloscope.
