TCPA300 Tektronix Probe Amplifier

Used

The TCPA300 is a Probe Amplifier from Tektronix. Amplify RF and Microwave signals to measure, test, and design circuits. Applications include radio communications, cellphones, EMI testing, and much more.

Additional Features:

  • 100 MHz, AC/DC Current Probe Amplifier
  • Automatic scaling and units-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

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)

The TCPA300 amplifier, when used with TCP312A, TCP305A, or TCP303 probes, provides 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 30 A, 50 A, and 150 A DC continuous.
