QUICK SPECS / PHOTOS
  • Bandwidth : 10 kHz to 1 GHz
  • Input Voltage Range : 0.5 V to 25 V RMS
  • Output : DC voltage proportional to RMS value of Input
  • Probe Input Capacitance : approx. 3.7pF
  • DMM Input Resistance : 10 MΩ
  • Max Rated Voltage : 42.4 (peak ac + dc)
  • COMPATIBILITY

    Designed to be used with a digital multimeter with a 10MΩ input resistance, the P6420 is compatible with the DM44, DM501 and DM502.

    CHARACTISTICS

    The P6420 rf probe measures high frequency ac voltage from 10 kHz to 1 GHz. It provides a dc output voltage proportional to the rms value of a sine-wave input.

    Designed to be used with a digital multimeter with a 10 MΩ input resistance, the P6420 can also be used with oscilloscopes which have a 1 MΩ input for relative flatness readings.
