Teledyne LeCroy has introduced two new adapters to support third-party probes and current measurement devices. The TPA10 TekProbe Probe Adapter adapts a wide variety of Tektronix voltage and current probes. The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter adapts a wide variety of third-party current measurement devices. Both connect to the Teledyne LeCroy ProBus probe interface that’s on most Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes.
The TPA10 TekProbe Probe Adapter enables you to connect select Tektronix TekProbe interface level II probes to any ProBus-equipped Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope. It automatically detects the Tektronix probe, supplies power and offset control to the probe, and then communicates the probe signal to the oscilloscope. Supported probes include many popular Tektronix probes, preamplifiers, current probes, single-ended active probes, and differential active probes.
With the CA10 Current Sensor Adapter, a third-party current measurement device can operate like a Teledyne LeCroy probe. It is programmable and customizable to work with third-party current measurement devices that output voltage or current signals proportional to measured current. The CA10 also provides the ability to easily install physical hardware components (e.g., shunt resistors and bandwidth filter components).
The TPA10 costs $950. The CA10 is $295. A QuadPak (four of each device) costs $3800 and $1180, respectively. The QuadPak includes a soft-carrying case to store the adapters. Delivery time for each item is four to six weeks.
