Tektronix CT6 Probe Current Transformer
Model Number: CT6
The Tektronix CT6 Current Probe, High Freq/Small Geometry (w/ Certificate of Traceable Calibration) is designed for permanent or semi-permanent in-circuit installation. Each probe consists of a current transformer and an interconnecting cable. The current transformers have a small hole through which a current carrying conductor is passed during circuit assembly. The Tektronix CT6 Current Probe, High Freq/Small Geometry (w/ Certificate of Traceable Calibration) provides the connection between the Tektronix CT1 Current Transformer and a BNC oscilloscope input. A 50 ohm termination is required to terminate the cable when connected to a high-impedance (1 M ohm) oscilloscope input. One probe cable can be used to monitor several current transformers that have been wired into a circuit. Miniature Construction The Tektronix CT6 detachable cable design enables one or more probes to be located on circuit boards or in other limited space areas. Additionally, the Tektronix CT/1 features the ability to removable cables, which enable the user to adjust the length of the cable to what is most optimal to them at the time without purchasing a whole new probe. Specified rise time and bandwidth are obtained when using the probe cables provided; The Tektronix P6041 cable used with the Tektronix CT6 is 42 inches nominal. If additional length is required, the cables can be extended by using high-quality 50 ohm cable and suitable interface connectors. However, Long cables may degrade high-frequency response. The Tektronix CT6 provides an output of 5 mV for each milliamp of input current when terminated in 50 ohm.
