Hi,

I have an old P6021 tektronix current probe, but I don’t have the passive termination to go with it. Will it work to a limited degree without the termination?

Thanks!

Thanks, just saw In the pdf the warning about using the probe without termination as the coil can develop high voltages and damage the probe.

Not advisable as the windings need be properly terminated into the passive termination or the type 134 current probe amp.
There is some info in this old Tek Probe circuits book in the Current probe section however I think for earlier current probes not the P6021.

Great probes, I have a couple of them and a P6022.
A real tidy hardly used P6021 and termination went for $200 on eBay recently which shows you can find them still fairly priced if you're patient.
OTOH 011-0105-00 terminations on their own and fairly are priced are much rarer.
