Key facts

  • Up to 4 high-sensitivity voltage and current channels
  • 18-bit ADC at 5 Msample/s (for each channel)
  • 1 MHz bandwidth with flexible filtering options
  • Several current ranges from 4.5 uA to 10 A with internal shunt
  • Flexible connectivity options for every application

Brief description

The R&S®RT-ZVC multi-channel power probe offers up to four voltage and four current channels with 18-bit resolution for high dynamic range current and voltage measurements. With up to two R&S®RT-ZVC probes supported on an R&S®RTE or R&S®RTO oscilloscope, it is possible to analyze eight high dynamic range voltage and eight high dynamic range current signals in parallel with signals captured by the oscilloscope.

Features & benefits

High-sensitivity power consumption analysis

The R&S®RT-ZVC probe provides an extraordinarily high dynamic range for measuring both active and sleep currents, in this example 12 mA and 30 μA. Automated measurements make it possible to calculate the total energy consumption of specific activity phases of the device under test.

High-sensitivity current measurement

Measure active and sleep currents at the same time to optimize power consumption of battery operated devices.

High bandwidth with flexible filtering for noise reduction

A bandwidth of 1 MHz and a sampling rate of 5 Msample/s allows you to capture fast current pulses. To analyze the overall power consumption of battery powered devices, the very low sleep-mode currents have to be captured at the same time. For very high dynamic range measurements, the integrated lowpass filter reduces the bandwidth down to 5 kHz and minimizes overall system noise.

Flexible digital acquisition system

The R&S®RT-ZVC probe's digital acquisition system provides 18-bit resolution, a 5 Msample/s sampling rate and 1 MHz bandwidth with configurable lowpass filter.

Flexible connectivity options for every application

The R&S®RT-ZVC multi-channel power probe comes with a set of high-quality pin connector cables and solder-in leads to connect the probe in typical embedded electronics measurement scenarios. 4 mm connector cables with different lengths are optionally available as are BNC type connector cables for connecting standard oscilloscope voltage and current probes to extend the voltage and current measurement range.
