Small isolated oscilloscope probes enhance capabilities
Stephen LawElectronics Test & Measurement isolated oscilloscope probes
TEKTRONIX TIVP Series second-generation IsoVu Isolated oscilloscope probes advance the capabilities and extend the applications for isolated probe technology to the entire power system design market with a smaller size, improved ease of use, and enhanced electrical performance. Units are about one-fifth the size of the first generation, making it easier to access hard to reach measurement points. Also, the separate controller box has been condensed and is now self-contained inside the probe’s compensation box. Probes are more sensitive, with less noise at +/- 50V measurements for greater visibility and voltage sensitivity in wide bandgap measurements. Probe offers enhanced accuracy in a number of areas including improved DC accuracy, enhanced gain accuracy over the full input range and improved temperature drift correction.
