Newbie question on PicoScope 2104

Post by RE-Sandra » Sun Apr 24, 2011 4:34 pm

I just bought my PicoScope 2104, looking at the manual and specs I am worried I got the wrong product.
My main use for this product will be inspecting waveform on 120V 60Hz loads or source.
For example:
Diesel generator 120V 60Hz
Inverter, etc

Will the PicoScope 2104 work for this application?

Thank you for you help,

Hi the 2104 is not suited for this kind of application, none of our our products are suitable for measuring high voltages like this without any attenuation.

A better solution is to use the 2203 oscilloscope

To attenuate the signal safely you will need something like the TA041 differential oscilloscope probe. ... robes.html
