High Voltage Dividers & Probes
Ross Engineering Corporation's lightweight, base-mounted high voltage dividers or hand-held probes are designed for use from 1 KV to 1000KV with accuracies of 0.01 % to 3% DC, 0.2% to 10% AC with band widths to over 20MHz, or pulse to 10 nanosecond rise times. They can be used at any attitude and many are self-supporting up to 10G's shock. They are available in compensated resistance-capacitance types or uncompensated resistive or capacitive types.
Applications include use with panel meters, recorders, digital voltmeters, VTVMs, oscilloscopes, or computers for viewing and recording DC, CW (Continuous Wave), AC, pulse, or modulated frequencies. They can also be used as simple, high-accuracy meter multipliers.
High voltage resistances are usually 2 megohms or 4 megohms per KV to minimize heating and voltage coefficients consistent with compact sizes. High Voltage resistances of 50 ohms or less and as high as 1000 megohms or more per KV are available. High voltage capacitance is maintained at low picofarad values to minimize circuit effects. Standard ratios are 1,000/1 or 10,000/1. Almost any other ratio is available.
