The Tektronix P6106 is a passive 250 MHz ×10 probe for 1 MΩ inputs. It was available with 1, 2 or 3 meters of probe cable. The 6106 has a coding pin for scope readout ×10. Color coding on probe head and the BNC end sockets indicates how long the cable is. Blue means 1 meter, Orange means 2 meters, and Red means 3 meters. The P6106 is standard with the 475 and 475A.


Attenuation 10 × ±3% with scope input at 1 MΩ ±2%
Compensation range 15 pF to 24 pF
Bandwidth >250 MHz (>150 MHz for 3 meter cable). Using the 1 meter probe with a scope having at least 325 MHz bandwidth results in a system bandwidth of 300 MHz typ.
Input capacitance 10.5 pF (1 m), 13.0 pF (2 m), 15.5 pF (3 m)
