Issue Details

Is the SP500C scope probe compatible with the PXIe-5114 scope?

Solution

All BNC oscilloscope probes are compatible with NI Scopes/Digitizers as long as the max input range of the probe divided by the probe attenuation does not violate the max input range specification of the scope. For the SP500C and PXIe-5114, the SP500C is ±300V with 100X attenuation, which results in a range of ±3V. The PXIe-5114 has an input range up to 40V, so there would be no problem with using this probe and scope together.
