BK-PR-55 High Voltage Probe:
Used when measuring voltages above the specs of the general purpose probe
  • X1000 Attenuation
  • 100MΩs / 1pF
  • 0 Mhz Bandwidth
  • 80" (2m) Cable Length
2 lbs (0.9 kg)
  • User-defined pass/fail limits for testing speeds up high-production testing and other less detailed maintenance operations.
  • Switchable manual or automatic setup, easy to read results, and simple, analog-style controls make this an excellent unit for educational use.
  • The risk of theft can be reduced by attaching the unit to your location using the integrated rear security loops and a cable lock.
  • Built-in help function provides a more “hands-on” approach to learning the instrument than a print manual alone, accommodating users of all skill levels and learning types.
  • Long 32,000 point waveform memory storage (single channel operation) provides a superior view of voltage changes over time for improved data usability.
