Use of differential probe TA041

Post by vinodhramjattan »

Hi..need some advice please..currently using TA041 differential probe with older parallel port ADC212 unit. Want to upgrade to new USB unit 2206B. Will the 25 mHz TA041 still be usable with the newer 2206B unit?

Hi vinodhramjattan,

I apologise for the long delay in answering, I have been tied up with other work, so I haven't been able to answer forum posts for quite a while.

The answer is yes, (I hope that while connecting to the parallel port ADC212, you are using fused test Prods with the TA041, such as these : https://cpc.farnell.com/silvertronic/13 ... MvEALw_wcB, as recommended in the user manual :) ).

Hi Saqib,

I haven't been able to get back to previous forum posts for a while, so if this is still something that you're looking into, then the answer is depends upon whether you mean 1200V Peak or Peak-to-peak and also what the maximum of any relevant DC offset may be. The Differential Range limit is ±700 V (DC + peak AC) so 0V to any peak cannot be more than +700V peak or less than -700V peak.
