How do I know if an AC signal applied to the MDO3000/4000/B RF 50 Ω input is going to exceed the maximum input power rating, and cause clipping, or damage?
MDO3000, MDO4000/B Advanced Math equation will calculate the AC signal's equivalent RF power in dBm, and the automatic High measurement will determine the maximum average power level of the AC signal applied to the 50 Ω analog input channel. Caution...
