Why do the SP3050A passive probes that come with the SDS6000A have a 2 GHz only label?

November 1, 2021

The SP3050A 500 MHz probes for the SDS6A are adjusted to best match the front end of the SDS6A series of scopes. They have a different response from the same models that are included with other SIGLENT scopes, including the SDS5X. The label is used to distinguish between the two types of SP3050A probes.

The probes can be manually adjusted to work with other scopes, but the label should be removed and they should be verified before use.SP3050A 2 GHz label
