AD2801, Active Differential Scope Probe, 800MHz, BNC

The AD2801 is a high-bandwidth differential probe. With a fast 800 MHz bandwidth it is ideal for measuring high-speed differential signals.

This differential probe extends the functionality of standard single-ended input oscilloscopes to allow a safe and accurate method of making differential voltage measurements. Applications include making safe measurements in power circuit applications and acquisition of high-speed balanced differential signals found in serial communications buses such as BroadR-Reach.

Redesigned, the AD2801 replaces the TA046 with the same performance specifications, but with improved powering options. This probe now includes an in-line battery module, with a 5V USB power lead integrated for use with standard off-the-shelf USB chargers.

The kit includes the following items:

  • AD2801 probe body, power unit and BNC assembly
  • 1 pair test wires, red and black, 0.8mm x 70mm
  • 1 pair test wires, red and black, 0.8mm x 130mm
  • 1 pair large grabbers, 5mm wide, red and black
  • 1 pair small grabbers, 2.5mm wide, red and black
  • Test tip, 0.8mm, 6 pcs
  • 2-pin prods, assorted lengths, 3 pcs
  • 9V battery
  • USB power cable
