#9: Basic 1X And 10X Oscilloscope Probe Tutorial

What do you think about this video?

Bushougoma: I was surprised when my HP 54645D I purchased had the 1x/10x auto sensing rings on the BNC connectors. It seems all of the HP 54600 series scopes have them.

I always thought Tektronix had a patent on it or something that prevented other manufacturers from using it.

Philippe Lemay: So a good quick rule would be...

1x, great bandwidth, susceptible to noise
10x, smaller bandwidth, great noise isolation

Surging Circuits: Do you publish your notes? I would pay for them.

bertoid: Great video, a short extract of the lecture without the background noise.
After decades of (occasional) scope use, I've only recently learned that 10x is typical or normal probe usage. I always thought it was an exceptional usage for high voltage inputs, and was not really conscious of the loading aspects. I always had my probes set to 1x, but then I was mostly dealing with digital circuits, so less effect.
I also only learned recently that the sharp internal tip was intended as an actual probe, I always thought the springy hook was they only way it should connect to the circuit.
Anyway, I had a question, just saw it was answered further down. (If the 9M resistor must be at the probe end, before the coax, and the compensation trimcap is in parallel with it, how can it work when the trimcap is at the scope end of the coax?)

Skeptical Open-mind: amazing video and explanation

Another Skater: cool ! thank youI bought a used scope with 10x probe - had the instructions and calibrated it.Now I know WHY I had to do it - thanks again

Kennynva T.: sounded like a ice maker or refrigerator started up at the end of your video

smashdesystem: I thought the Eevblog was the only channel with extensive videos about electronics, and I´m glad I was wrong, your videos are a great source of information, instant subscribe :)

Dathan Walters: Using a 1X probe has less "loading capacitance" on a circuit? when troubleshooting digital logic TTL/CMOS using a 10X probe can cause loading capacitance, which will add to the rise time/fall time, add to propagation delay time and clock skew time. Does a logic probe cause loading capacitance?

Ray Cooper: Excellent tutorial. Thank you very much!

tenissabbalas: Thank you very much for those amazing Videos..
Guys like you make the youtube very useful.

Birdman: When are you supposed to use the 50 ohm and 1M ohm settings?

B Thayer: i have a Tek P5100 100x 2500v pk probe, with a agilent infiniium 54831B o-scope. I need to verify voltage output of a power supply with outputs in the 800-1400v range. will this probe scale the voltage to the 8-14v range on my oscope? I do have other probes available to me.

Vasudev Mr: the term 10x means if I give 10v at the Intput ,I will get 1 volt at the entrance of the probe . am I right about this ??

Vasudev Mr: how to design 100x attenuator circuit just to measure dc pulse of very low frequency , can we do it using voltage divider ??

Vinay Khurana: Ohh, I finally got to know what that 1x and 10x switch is for. :)
Nicely explained. Thanks.

Kennynva T.: What probe would you suggest for a Hitachi V-302 30mhz scope??

Anjan Kumar: Thank you for the video.

rob b: thanks , i callibrated probe

richard goebel: Excellent video. Short and sweet and to the point.
