Current Probe for PCB Track Measurements
Aim I-prober 520Making PCB track current measurement a reality
The I-prober 520 positional current probe is unlike any other current probe or current measurement device available.
Calibrated measurement of current normally requires the current to be passed through a closed magnetic loop. Typically this is done using some form of split clamp device. Whereas this is suitable for individual wires, it is of no use for measuring current in PCB tracks.
The I-prober 520 is a compact hand-held probe which is used with an oscilloscope. By placing the insulated tip of the probe onto a PCB track, the current flowing in the track can be observed and measured.
You can even measure the current in a ground plane. The Aim I-prober makes instant PCB track current measurements a reality.
