4425A Attenuators

Post by Meffi1994 »

Hi Guys,

yesterday the new Picoscope 4425A is arrived at my workshop :shock: . I´m very happy now. :lol:
So i started to work with and I want to take a look at diesel with piezo injectors <, we all know these could be very high.
At my old scope I used the Attenuator to measure the Voltage but now? I know the bnc-cables form the older scope´s are connectable but the bnc attenuator between the BNC+ connector form scope and cable feel very unusual and wierd to me :oops:

Maybe I had overlooked something :oops: but better save than sorry :)

Kind regards

Hello and thank you for the post, great news your scope has arrived

Regarding attenuation you have several options

Depending on the kit you have purchased (assuming you have purchased a kit) for BNC+ attenuation you would use the 10:1 Scope probe here https://www.picoauto.com/products/test- ... cope-probe. This probe is included in all kits accept the starter kits

Alternatively you can continue to use a standard BNC x1 test lead with an additional attenuator https://www.picoauto.com/products/test- ... attenuator

Finally, you can also use our BNC high impedance probes https://www.picoauto.com/products/test- ... 00-mhz-bnc

One final note, with all the above attenuated probes/options, only the signal path is attenuated, not the ground

I hope this helps, take care.......Steve
