The TCP300 and TCP400 Series AC/DC current measurement instruments is part a family of agile tools that can be seamlessly interfaced with products from Tektronix like their oscilloscopes. Moreover, the TCP300/TCP400 current measurement systems seamlessly integrate with your TDS series oscilloscope. Surprising enough, even non-TEKPROBE systems can use the TCPA300/400 series to make proper current measurements by simply multiplying the measured output voltage on the oscilloscope by the TCPA300/400 series range setting.
With an accuracy reading set at DC: ±1% across all model range, common measurement errors and manual calculations have henceforth been greatly reduced. Indeed, this commitment to accuracy has been translated to constant availability of reporting and analytic tools via a series of status indicators that provide visual operating status and notification of potential error conditions. These statuses include, degauss, probe open, overload, not terminated into 50 Ω, and noncompatible probe type.
Finally, as a guarantee to conformity to the industry’s highest standards, all Tektronix products come with a series of international certifications like the US, NRTL listing, Canadian certification as well as the European Union compliance. Review of Key specifications
When interfaced with a TDS TEKSCOPE oscilloscope, or a TekConnect oscilloscope with TCA-BNC adapter, these probes are able to automatically scale units via an on-screen readout of magnitude and amps. Through this ability, you can thus reduce measurement errors with no more hand calculations.
Furthermore, 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. To achieve this, the lowest measurable current (at ±3% accuracy at DC), ranging from 1 mA, 5 mA and 1 A.
Another configuration that assures the lowest measurable current is low DC drift and noise which allows improved low-level current measurements. This is why even for even higher current levels, the TCPA400 amplifier with the TCP404XL current probe measures 500 A DC continuous and 750 A DC continuous, derated with duty cycle.
