Product Tours HelpThese Product Tours are just a structured sequence of web pages. Click the ► button to step through them.
- The navigation buttons have the following functions:
- |◄ takes you back to the beginning of the current tour
- ◄ is the same as your browser back button
- ▲ takes you up a level in the hierarchy
- ► steps forward to the next page
- The drop-lists give another way of accessing the same pages
- shows and hides a map of the structure of the tour with links to each page.
- expands the tour into its own window (only visible when embedded in another page.)
I-prober Tour Map
I-prober 520 Positional Current ProbeStep through the pages using the controls above, or select using the adjacent select list
Observe and measure current in a PCB track
- Make measurements via non-contact probing
- Suitable for observation and measurement of current in component leads & ground planes as well as PCB tracks
- Wide dynamic range of 10mA to 20A pk to pk
- Wide bandwidth of DC to 5MHz
- Low noise equivalent to <6mA rms at full bandwidth
- Minimal disturbance to circuit conditions through very low insertion impedance and stray capacitance
- Safety rated to 300V Cat II (600V Cat I)
- Suitable for connection to any oscilloscope
- High accuracy general purpose H-field probe
- Convertible into "closed magnetic circuit" current probe
The Aim I-prober 520The Aim I-prober 520 positional current probe is unlike any other current measurement device available.
Calibrated measurement of current normally requires the current to be passed through a closed magnetic loop. Typically this is done using some form of split clamp device. Whereas this is suitable for individual wires, it is of no use for measuring current in PCB tracks.
The I-prober 520 is a compact hand-held probe which is used with an oscilloscope. By placing the insulated tip of the probe onto a PCB track, the current flowing in the track can be observed and measured.
