DPScope - Low-Cost USB Oscilloscopes
(*) Disclaimer: The DPScope II is not intended for high voltage applications. Use proper precautions when
working with high voltages (anything exceeding 24V peak). Yo
u do so at your own risk and we cannot be held
responsible for damage to life or property resulting from such work. Attempt such work ONLY if you have the
necessary knowledge and training. Make sure the probe is set up to the required division ratio before probing.
Never apply any voltage exceeding 24V to the oscilloscope inputs. Note that the peak value of an sinusoidal AC
signal is approx. 40% higher than its rated effective value.
