PDF Document Icon Data Sheet (865 KB)


Product Features:

  • DC - 50 MHz
  • Automatic scaling and units - Oscilloscope on-screen readout of magnitude and amps reduces measurement errors with no more hand calculations (Requires a TDS TEKSCOPE oscilloscope or a TekConect oscilloscope with TCA-BNC adapter)
  • 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
  • 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 Tektronix TCPA300 amplifier, when used with Tektronix TCP305A, provides a wide range of current measurement capability and spans the gap between low-level milliamp measurements to very high current levels. The Tektronix TCP305A provides current measurement capabilities of 50 A DC continuous.

With this new series of current measurement tools, automatic control and on-screen scaling and units is provided for users of Tektronix TDS3000, TDS500, TDS600, TDS700, TDS5000, TDS6000, and TDS7000B series oscilloscope systems (the DPO3000, MDO/MSO/DPO4000, MSO/DPO5000, and DPO7000 series oscilloscopes, the TPA-BNC adapter is required).

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.
