  • Tektronix part 010-6430-00

    This Tektronix P6430 temperature probe is used with the DM502 and DM44 multimeters found on some Tektronix 400-series oscilloscopes.
    ===========================
    This NEW Tektronix P6430 Temperature Probe works with the DM43 and DM44 400 Series "Piggy-Back" Scope Multimeters as well as the Tektronix DM502 and 851. Complete with Instruction Manual.
    ======================================================
    Temperature (Equilibrium): -55°C to +150°C. Accuracy determined by Digital Multimeter and conditions described under Measuring Temperature.

    Maximum Safe Voltage on Measurement Surface: 100 V (dc + peak ac) above chassis ground.

    Typical RF Frequency and Voltage Limits on Measurement Surface - See Fig. 1 in manual

    Using a Transistor as a Temperature-Sensing Device

    Certain NPN transistors such as a 2N2484 can be used as separate sensors in place of the P6430 probe with little or no selection of the transistor. Connect the temperature-sensing transistor to the DM 502 through the TEMP PROBE connector as follows:
    Emittor - connects to pin 2
    Collector - connects to pin 1
    Base - connects to cable shield and then to the connector shell
