High Voltage measurement

Recommended Posts

Hi all! In Vectrex service manual you can find info about troubleshooting, one of paragraphs contains instructions to measure 5.8 KV voltage. My oscilloscope can't handle it even with 1000:1 probe which I have, my digital multimeter don't have a such large limit also. What equipment do you use for these measurements?

Neither the oscilloscope nor the multimeter can handle more than 10V? Because the 1000:1 probe is supposed to pull the 5.8kV down to 5.8V. Surely a meter should handle that.

Indeed, I have only 100:1 oscilloscope probe, it was a typo. I checked prices of 1000:1 probes before and found only very expensive. Now with your help I checked again, both for multimeters and oscilloscopes and there are good variants. Thanks for help!
