New RT-Z2T TekProbe adapter from R&S

RT-Z2T TekProbe adapter for Rohde and Schwarz oscilloscopes

New adapter from R&S makes it possible to use Tektronix probes on R&S 'scopes

The RT-Z2T probe interface adapter allows selected Tektronix TekProbe Interface Level II probes to be used with some R&S oscilloscopes.  Preliminary information suggests that the adapter will already work with the RTM3000 Series oscilloscopes from firmware version V1.30 and with the RTA4000 Series with firmware V1.10 (both already released).  The RTE1000 and RTO2000 series are planned to support the new adapter with firmware version V4.15 planned for August 2018.

The following probes are supported:
  • Single-ended active probes (without offset control)
    • P6205: 750 MHz, 10:1
    • P6243: 1 GHz, 10:1
    • P6245: 1.5 GHz, 10:1
    • P6241: 4 GHz, 10:1
    • P6249: 4 GHz, 5:1
  • Current Probes
    • TCP202: 50 MHz AC/DC Current probe
  • Differential Active Probes (without offset control)
    • P6246: 400 MHz, 10:1 / 1:1
    • P6247: 1 GHz, 10:1 / 1:1
    • P6248: 1.5 GHz, 10:1 / 1:1
    • P6250: 500 MHz, 50:1 / 5:1
    • P6251: 1 GHz, 50:1 / 5:1
  • High-voltage Differential Probes
    • P5205: 100 MHz, 50:1 / 500:1
    • P5210: 50 MHz, 100:1 / 1000:1
  • Electro-optical probes
    • P6701B: 1 GHz
    • P6703B: 1.2 GHz
    • P6711: 250 MHz
    • P6713: 300 MHz
On the oscilloscope, with the appropriate firmware loaded, the user can select the attached probe type in order to get the right attenuation factor.  Offset control is not supported:

The adapter is expected to be available from August 2018.  We'll put more information here when we have it.
