DC signal using AC coupling

Postby adriwii » Sun Sep 10, 2017 1:05 pm

Hi, i have that problem. When i want to read a AC signal in an audio amplifier with the channel setting AC coupling, the software shows me a DC signal of 20V. In that test point i have much more DC signal than that but it has to be 0Vac, because im not putting a signal in there. Anyone can help me, why the PicoScope or the software are reading like 20Vdc? Thank you very much.
Adrian.

Please can you email in to support@picotech.com we need to discuss what you are doing in more detail, and the automotive forum is not the correct place for this.
