Rohde & Schwarz has unleashed a couple of probe models. The R&S RT-ZS60 active voltage probe is geared for any task requiring ground-referenced measurements of signal integrity while the R&S RT-ZD01 active differential high-voltage probe offers customers the benefits of a selectable measurement range for automotive, power or medical technology applications. According to the company, the broadband, ground-referenced models boast ranges up to 6GHz.

R&S probes

R&S probes. Geared for any task requiring ground-referenced measurements of signal integrity and selectable measurement range.

The R&S RT-ZS60 is capable of conducting tests on fast interfaces such as DDR memory modules or general analyses for A&D, research and consumer electronics: The R&S RT-ZS60 claims to be the first compact, ground-referenced 6GHz probe on the market. The probe scores top marks with its extremely low loading of the test point (1M?, 0.3pF) for both DC as well as high frequencies in addition to its minimal noise (2mV RMS) and high linearity (70dB THD). The frequency-independent and high dynamic range of 8 V also makes it possible to perform measurements on very fast signals with large amplitudes. In addition, the probe can be used with the optional R&S RT-ZA9 adapter on Rohde & Schwarz signal and spectrum analysers, detailed the company.

The R&S RT-ZD01 provides the ideal dynamic range with its maximum measurement voltage of 1kV (RMS), indicated Rohde & Schwarz. The certification for the CAT III safety rating allows measurements all the way to the building installation. For measurements on differential signals, the R&S RT-ZD01 offers extremely high precision thanks to its outstanding common mode rejection ratio of -80dB. Just like all Rohde & Schwarz probes, this model also ensures very low loading of the test point.

The R&S RT-ZS60 active ground-referenced voltage probe as well as the R&S RT-ZD01 active differential high-voltage probe are available.
