Pico Technology, worldwide leaders in PC Oscilloscopes, have released a new range of oscilloscope accessories including three high-voltage differential probes, a passive 500 MHz scope probe, a set of 50-ohm coaxial attenuators and a 50-ohm coaxial terminator.

The new high-voltage differential probes give a choice of bandwidths from 70 to 100 MHz and have differential measuring ranges from 700 V to 7 kV. They are suitable for measurements on mains circuits, motors and switch mode power supplies, especially in applications where voltages are not referenced to ground.

The new 500 MHz passive oscilloscope probe is perfect for general-purpose use, with 10:1 attenuation and an input impedance of 1 megohm. It has adjustable low-frequency and high-frequency compensation, and is compatible with all major brands of oscilloscope. The cable length is 1.5 metres.

The new BNC attenuator set allows you to increase the input range of your oscilloscope, or reduce the output level of a fixed-amplitude signal source. The BNC feed-through terminator is useful for connecting signals from a low-impedance source to an instruments with a high-impedance input, such as an oscilloscope.

Alan Tong, Managing Director of Pico Technology, commented, “With our 16 years of experience in PC Oscilloscopes, we know how difficult it can be to find good-quality probes and accessories for your scope. Now we can save you time and money by supplying all the scope accessories that you need.”
