New 100kV portable HV probe from North Star


North Star have added a 100kV model to their PVM series of high voltage probes. The new model offers 0.1% DC accuracy at 100kV, a fast rise time and bandwidth of up to 80MHz.

PVM100 specification

Max DC / Pulsed (kV) Max Freq (MHz) Cable Imp. (Ω) DC – 2Hz 2 Hz – 200 Hz 200 Hz – 5 MHz > 5 MHz Input R/C (MΩ/pf) Divider Ratio Length (inches/cm)
100/150 80 50 <0.15%  <1.5%  <2%  <6% 600/15 2000:1 23/57

Portable HV probe

In contrast to the physically more stable VD series, the PVM series are portable probes, designed for general use where portability and ease of use are essential. They deliver an exceptionally high frequency response in applications such as:

  • Automotive ignition
  • Excimer laser system measurement
  • EMI measurement.

Factory calibrated

PVM probes are intended for use with 1MΩ oscilloscopes, but they are also available with an optional switch that can compensate for various measurement instruments, such as 10MΩ meters. The units are factory-calibrated and do not require adjustment.
