Tektronix AM503S Current Probe System
The Tektronix AM 503S Current Probe System consists of an AM 503/A Current Probe Amplifier, an A6302 Current Probe, and a TM 502A Power Module.
The AM 503S lets you use one probe to simultaneously measure AC and DC current. The AM 503A amplifier converts the sensed current into a proportional voltage signal that you can measure directly with an oscilloscope or similar measuring device. You can select the probe that best matches your application. Each probe uses a moveable slide to clamp around the conductor under test. The AM 503S provides better linearity than other current measurement systems because of a current feedback process used with the probe. DC measurement capability and high bandwidth allow the AM 503S to accurately represent square waves and fast-rise signals. The high sensitivity of the AM 503A maximizes measurement precision. In addition to the AM 503S system, you need an oscilloscope to display the AM 503S measurements. The oscilloscope bandwidth should be approximately four times the bandwidth of your current probe and should be capable of displaying a vertical scale factor of 10 mV/div.
