CT-002-T Series Broadband Current Transformer / High Frequency AC Current Probe

CT-002-T series broadband current transformers (High Frequency AC Current Probe) are designed to monitor high frequency current pulse transients through an insulated wire. The frequency response of the current probe is flat from around 1 kHz to a few GHz.

It is outperforms both Tektronix CT-1, CT-2 and CT6 for frequency and saturation performance.

Features

  • Wideband flat transfer impedance (from kHz to few GHz )
  • High saturation (current time product) rating up to 75 Aµs
  • Compact and robust design
  • Measures high frequency directly on a wire
