P2036 passive oscilloscope probe: 300 MHz 2.5 mm 10:1, BNC, single pack

The P2036 (single pack) is a state-of-the-art 10:1 miniature probes for oscilloscopes with up to 300 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 risetimes 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 divider 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 risetimes. 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 P2036 and P2056 are available 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 included with the probe, offering adaptive solutions for almost every probing demand.

The P2036 probe is available as a single-pack with a full set of accessories, and also as a cost saving dual-pack with a reduced set of accessories. This P2036 single-pack probe is supplied with the following accessories and spares:

  • 1 x Coding rings (set) 3x4 colors 
  • 1 x Ground blade 2.5 mm
  • 1 x Ground lead 15 cm 
  • 1 x Ground spring 2.5 mm
  • 1 x Insulating cap 2.5 mm
  • 1 x Sprung hook 2.5 mm
  • 1 x Trim tool

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.
