The P2056 (dual pack) contains two state-of-the-art 10:1 miniature probes for oscilloscopes with up to 500 MHz bandwidth. The entire probe core is made of a high-quality CeramCore™ ceramic hybrid. Pure coaxial design and laser-trimmed resistors ensure highest signal fidelity along the signal path, offering high bandwidth and fast rise-times for accurate impulse measurements. With a maximum input voltage of 300 V CAT II, these probes are equally suitable in service and development environments. The read-out BNC connector is automatically recognized as a 10:1 attenuator by scopes such as the PicoScope 6000E Series that feature a sense ring.
The compact design with its 2.5 mm housing diameter at the tip provides better visibility on the DUT (device under test) in dense SMT circuits than conventional 5 mm housings.
The remarkably low input capacitance of only 9.5 pF applies a minimal load to the signal source, which is particularly important when measuring signals with fast edges. Only active or low-impedance probes can achieve lower loading than this.
The long ground leads found on most conventional probes bring additional inductance and resonances into the setup, which will result in false or inaccurate readings. The P2056 is supplied with an IC contact system consisting of five different IC adaptors ranging from 1.27 to 0.5 mm pitch and a PCB adaptor kit, offering an ideal solution for short-circuit-proof, reproducible measurements. The probe is shipped with our signature spring-loaded tips. There are up to 16 different accessories available for the probe in optional accessory kits, offering adaptive solutions for almost every probing demand.
The P2056 probe dual pack is a cost-saving option with fewer accessories than the P2056 single pack. It contains these items:
Also check out the Pico probe positioning system compatible with these probes, as the ideal way to firmly hold your PCB under test and accurately position the probes.
