By inserting a large resistor in series with the probe and providing good electrical insulation, it is possible to create a probe that allows an ordinary voltmeter (or for the sake of this product catagory; oscilloscopes) to measure very high voltages. The value of the resistor must be chosen to form an appropriate voltage divider with the input resistance of the voltmeter (oscilloscope).


The PPE series of probes are suitable for a wide range of applications where high-voltage measurements must be made safely and accurately. There are five fixed-attenuation probes covering a range from 2 kV to 20 kV, and one switchable probe providing /10 and /100 attenuation for voltage inputs up to 1.2 kV. New technology which utilizes hybrid circuitry (and switch reading for probes with switchable gain/attenuation) minimizes ringing and overshoot to provide a precise response.
