house electricity waveform

Postby FredJe » Sun Mar 30, 2014 8:52 pm


Using 4423 with firmware,
What is the way to connect the scope to see the house a/c waveform?
I am thinking to plug the attenuator to one of the channels, and use the positive terminal of the lead to one prong and the negative terminal of the same lead to the other prong. Would that be it?

Thank you

You should not be connecting directly to mains, even with attenuators, please contact support@picotech.com for full advice on what is safe and not safe to do.
