pp218 dc current probe

What is the frequency response of the pp218 dc current probe?
Will the pp218 show any current pulses that are in the negative direction?

Hi Richard,

I am not sure of the frequency response specs, but it is a fine amp probe and will readily show anything you need to see in automotive. Comparing it to a probe costing four times as much, I can see no difference in response or resolution. The ONLY difference is that it may not be quite as well shielded as the expensive one. Not a big issue.

Yes, it will show current in both directions as long as you range it correctly in PicoScope, so you have the scaling you need.
