The AM5030 Current Probe Amplifier with General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB) adds programmability to the versatile AM503B. The AM5030 enables you to use automated techniques to make wide bandwidth AC/DC current measurements. The AM5030 is a TM5000 single-wide module that plugs into a 3-slot TM5003 power module mainframe. While the non-programmable AM503B will operate in either a TM500 or TM5000 power module mainframe, the AM5030 works only in a TM5000 mainframe. The AM5030 uses A6312, A6302, A6303 and the XL Series of current probes and connects to any scope or analyzer via a BNC cable. Like the AM503B, the AM5030 does not have to be calibrated with specific current probes. This is a tremendous operational improvement over the older AM503 Systems. The AM5030 and AM503B also provide several improvements over the AM503A, including a faster Degauss/self-calibration cycle and more responsive, reliable front-panel controls. The AM5030 uses the IEEE-488.1 bus standard. Using a simple command set, you can configure and confirm the settings of the amplifier or read the instrument's serial number. You can determine whether the current probe is open or closed, use bus commands to initiate a self-test or force a probe Degauss and DC balance operation. The AM5030 bus address is set through the front panel and the address is retained when power is removed. The AM5030 does not require an external controller to operate. It can be completely controlled using the front panel; however, when used with a controller, the front panel can be disabled to prevent manual operator adjustments.
