Will an Active Differential probe support single ended measurements?
Active Differential Oscilloscope probes can be used to make single ended earth ground referenced measurements by connecting the (-) input to earth ground, and (+) input to signal.
While suitable in many applications, single-ended measurements can present problems in the following situations, and should be avoided:
- When the signal is not referenced to earth ground
- When connecting or disconnecting the probe ground distorts the signal
- When connecting the signal reference to ground damages or upsets the circuit
