Issue Details

I am trying to measure a 50 Volt peak to peak square wave at 110 KHz. Can the PXI-5900 device handle this signal for a sustained period (multiple hours in a day)?

Solution

It is not recommended to measure a signal outside of the measurement input range of the device. The integrity of the signal will be affected, and the data read on the oscilloscope that is doing the data acquisition will not be accurate. It is suggested you attenuate your signal before inputting it to the PXI-5900.
