02 March 2015 -- Rohde & Schwarz enhances its oscilloscope accessories portfolio with the new R&S RT-ZC20B current probe. At 100 MHz bandwidth, the can measure AC and DC of a maximum 30 A (RMS)/50 A (peak) current with a resolution of 10 mA and low noise. R&S RTO, R&S RTE and R&S RTM oscilloscopes can automatically detect up to four current probes connected in parallel and will also automatically adjust the vertical scaling and zeroing settings. The degaussing function is activated directly on the instrument.
The current probe receives power over the Rohde & Schwarz probe interface, eliminating the need for an external power supply. Combined with the R&S RTO/R&S RTE 16 bit high definition option, currents less than 1 mA can also be measured. This makes the current probe ideal for numerous power electronics applications, especially for evaluating switched-mode power supplies that require measurement of high frequency current components.
The new R&S RT ZC20B current probe is now available.
