The 1103 allows customers to use probes requiring TekProbe interface power with any oscilloscope or digitizer that does not provide TekProbe BNC power. The 1103 offers two independently controlled channels consisting of a TekProbe BNC interface input, a voltage offset control (providing variable offset or no offset) and BNC signal output. The offset control supplies a voltage, adjustable via the front panel control. This offset control is available for TekProbe BNC probes with this capability. These include: P6235, P6245, P6246, P6247, P6248, P6249, and P6330. *1 The characteristics for TekProbe BNC Interface probes are subject to change when used with the 1103 TekProbe Power Supply. Bandwidth, Rise-time, Propagation Delays will generally differ from the advertised probe only specification. These are dependent upon: 1) the cable length from the output BNC connector to the oscilloscope input, 2) the instrumentation input impedance the output BNC is being connected to, and 3) any additional adapters required to properly interface to the test instrumentation. To use TekProbe BNC Interface probes on the 11800, CSA800, TDS8000, CSA8000 or any non-TekProbe BNC interface test instrumentation requires an 1103 TekProbe Power Supply, an SMA Male to BNC Female adapter, a 50 Ω BNC cable and if required a 50 Ω feedthrough termination.

TekVPI™ Interface Adapter
TPA-BNC Adapter enables existing TekProbe® interface products (active, differential, high-voltage, current, and optical probes) to be used with the newest generation of Tektronix oscilloscopes which feature the TekVPI™ probe interface architecture. Existing TekProbe-BNC probe types simply plug into the TPA-BNC adapter which is then plugged directly into any channel of an oscilloscope equipped with the TekVPI probe interface. The TPA-BNC adapter recognizes and supplies the necessary power and serial communication and offset control as used by the connected TekProbe product accessory.
Note: Tektronix probe types using a BNC connection, or a BNC connection with a single analog encoding pin for attenuation factor detection connect directly to the oscilloscope’s TekVPI probe interface and do not require a TPA-BNC adapter.
TekProbe is a probe interface architecture introduced in 1986, and used on many earlier models of Tektronix oscilloscopes including the TDS300, TDS400, TDS500, TDS600, TDS700, TDS3000/B/C, TDS5000/B, and TDS7000 Series. In addition to coupling the signal from the probe to the oscilloscope, the TekProbe interface provides power and offset control to active probes. It also allows the oscilloscope to sense the probe’s attenuation scale factor and/or probe type.
