The TCPA300 amplifier, when used with TCP312, TCP305, or TCP303 probes, provide a wide range of current measurement capability and spans the gap between low level milliamp measurements to very high current levels.
These three probes provide current measurement capabilities of 30A, 50A, and 150A DC continuous.
For even higher current levels, the TCPA400 amplifier with the TCP404XL current probe measures 500A DC continuous and 750A DC continuous, derated with duty cycle.
Higher frequency performance is available with the TCP312 w/TCPA300 providing ≥100 MHz bandwidth and a maximum current of 30A DC.
