Measure Line Voltage with Picoscope 5000 Series

Post by A.Mak » Mon Oct 08, 2018 12:37 pm

Hi,

is it possible to measure line voltage 230V AC 50Hz (Germany) with a Picoscope 5000 Series and the common probes which were delivered with the picoscope? We are using a isolating transformer.

Thank you.

The standard probes are x1/x10, and the maximum input voltage for the scope is +/-20V so you would still be over range even though you are taking the necessary safety measure of using an isolation transformer.
