This is a means to improve your safety when conducting MEP/DE testing when using the Stetzer Ubiquitous (Hy Pass Filter) which blocks signals below 60 Hz from the input to the PICO scope input typically on port “B”.
What you may not realize is that the other leads (on the side with the power plug) of the Stetzer Ubiquitous (Hy Pass Filter) are at 120 volts RMS. These leads are fully exposed and have a risk of electrical shock when using the filter, you could accidently electrocute yourself.
In addition, if you directly feed this 120 RMS high voltage to your PICO scope it will damage the PICO scope because this scope type is limited to 30 Volts input max, 120 volts to the PICO scope is very dangerous. In the past people used a High Voltage differential probe to protect the scope. The PICO TA057 Differential Probe can run up to $379.00 Plus Shipping & Taxes to buy just by itself.
On this PICO interface I, you can eliminate the need for a high voltage probe because the output voltage of the high volts output has been modified and is limited to 10 – 11 volts max. This typically is connected to Port “A” of the PICO scope.
It comes with two 3 feet long RG-8X coax cables with BNC connectors installed. RG-8X coax cables have a heavy full copper braid shield with 95% coverage for excellent protection from other noise sources that may be present in the testing environment. You will not get any interference from cell phones, or other RF signals onto the signal wire that could distort your readings.
For those persons that already have a Stetzer Ubiquitous (Hy Pass Filter) you can ship us your Hy Pass filter and we will ship you the PICO Interface I completed with all you will need, fully tested, once we have received your Hy Pass filter at our lab. This will save you $150.00 for the completed PICO Interface I price.
