November 21, 2008 - Compatible with all oscilloscopes, IsoprobeŽ III high-frequency (250-500 MHz) test probes have coaxial connecting cable with low capacitance. Flexible PVC insulated coaxial leads terminate in BNC plug with integrated compensation unit. Most models have 10:1 dividing ratios, and 100:1 probe is available for measurements on sensitive circuits. Along with input capacitance as low as 12 pF, these passive probes feature ergonomic design and are touch protected to 1,000 V, CATIII.

Press release date: November 10, 2008

Multi-Contact has launched the third generation of its renowned Isoprobe(R) high frequency test probes. The Isoprobe III probes have a coaxial connecting cable with particularly low capacitance, which combined with changes to the interior of the probe, produce an extremely low input capacitance and rapid rise times.

The highly flexible PVC insulated coaxial leads terminate in a BNC plug with integrated compensation unit. The ergonomic design of these passive probes makes them easy to use, particularly when working with small components.

Most models in the Isoprobe III range have 10:1 dividing ratios, while a 100:1 probe is available for measurements on sensitive circuits. Frequency ranges are up to 250 to 500 MHz. Input capacitance for the basic probes is as low as 12 pF, with a rise time of 0.9 ns.

A range of probe sets are available including push on accessories such as adapters, clips and converters for applications such as bridging long distances and testing busbars. The probes are compatible with all oscilloscopes.

The safety probes are touch protected to 1000 V, CATIII (600 V, CATIV) according to IEC / EN 61010-031:2002. A 2 mm diameter safety socket for connecting a reference lead is provided in the handling part of the probes.
