The Fluke 80K-6 High Voltage Probe Helps Extend the Measuring Capabilities of an Ordinary Voltmeter

  • Uncategorized

A high voltage probe is a simple tool to extend the voltage measuring capabilities of an ordinary voltmeter. This lets you measure thousands of volts without damaging your voltmeter. This is ideal for measuring low current sources like CRTs and photocopiers.


A popular high voltage probe is the 80K-6 from 
Fluke power measuring instruments. It can convert voltages from 0-6kiloVolts AC/DC into a safe voltage that your multimeter can use. The voltage divider has a ratio of 1000:1 so you can use the 10 Volt range for measuring voltages of up to 6 kiloVolts. It has a very high input impedance of 75 megaOhms to prevent the test instrument from loading down the test sample and affect the reading. It is also manufactured to conform with international safety standards like CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 1010.2.031-94 and IEC 1010-2-031:1993. This helps protect the user from harm and the attached multimeter from damage.
