Need new probes?

Post by PaulTarka » Mon May 23, 2011 8:32 pm

Can we use our existing high voltage probes with a PicoScope 5203? Or do we need to use probes supplied on this site?

As long as your high voltage probe is rated to measure these voltages safely it should be no problem. What specifically is the probe model?

Kind regards

Thanks for the reply. We are using some Agilent 100:1 Probes.

Hi our scopes don't have a safety ground like a mains powered scope, it so I would not recommend this for use on high voltages.
