Low amp clamp help

Postby blake » Sat Dec 28, 2013 2:11 am

Just wondering if there is a button on the scope that I can click to invert waveform when using the low amp clamp. Sometimes it is such a fight to get the amp clamp around a wire only to find out the waveform is going off the screen and I would rather not have to go back and flip the clamp around. The Snap On Vantage scope (which is collecting dust inside my toolbox since I bought my PicoScope), has this feature, and I really hope Pico does also.

Thanks,

Blake

As you know, that's the easy bit. It's weather it will do greater than -ve 5 Amps.

better off using V scale & converting if he doesn't want to flip the clamp over 8)
