The TCPA400 current probe is a highly advanced current measurement system for today's current measurement needs. When connected to Tektronix oscilloscopes with TEKPROBE Level II, TekConnect (w/ TCA-BNC), or TekVPI (w/ TPA-BNC) interfaces, current measurements and calculations are simple and easy.

Tektronix TCPA400 Current Probe Product Description

The TCP300 and TCP400 Series AC/DC current measurement family is a highly advanced current measurement system for today's current measurement needs. When connected to Tektronix oscilloscopes with TEKPROBE Level II, TekConnect (w/ TCA-BNC), or TekVPI (w/ TPA-BNC) interfaces, current measurements and calculations are simple and easy.

Key performance specifications

AC/DC measurement capabilities

  • DC - 100 MHz, Current Probe Amplifier (TCPA300) uses:
    • DC - 100 MHz, 30 A DC (TCP312A)
    • DC - 50 MHz, 50 A DC (TCP305A)
    • DC - 15 MHz, 150 A DC (TCP303)
  • DC - 50 MHz, Current Probe Amplifier (TCPA400) Uses:
    • DC - 2 MHz, 750 A DC 1 (TCP404XL) (500 A DC Continuous)

1Derated with duty cycle

Key features

  • Automatic scaling and units 1 - Oscilloscope on-screen readout of magnitude and amps reduces measurement errors with no more hand calculations
  • AC/DC input coupling
  • Low insertion impedance reduces device under test loading
  • Split-core construction allows easy circuit connection
  • Status indicators provide visual operating status and notification of potential error conditions - degauss, probe open, overload, not terminated into 50 Ω, noncompatible probe type
  • Low DC drift and noise allows improved low-level current measurements
  • 3rd party safety certification

1Requires a TDS TEKSCOPE oscilloscope or a TekConnect oscilloscope with TCA-BNC adapter

Applications

  • Development and analysis solutions for designers, installers, and service personnel in telecom, data comm, computer, and semiconductor power electronics environments for:
    • Power supplies (switching and linear)
    • Semiconductor devices (SCRs, IGBTs, MOSFETs, CMOS, BJTs)
    • Power inverters/converters
    • Electronic ballasts
    • Industrial/consumer electronics
    • Mobile communications (phone, satellite, relay stations)
    • Motor drives
    • Transportation systems (electronic vehicles, electric trains, locomotives, avionics)
