Capture Voltage Signals from Outside the Wire Cover

The SP3000 is a non-contact AC voltage waveform probe ideal for maintenance applications involving device control signals and sensor signals. Simply apply the probe to a cable outside its insulation cover to capture the signal without exposing the technician to electrocution.
Key Features

• Observe waveforms with an oscilloscope or a Hioki Memory HiCorder by visualizing signals from electric equipment simply by applying the probe to the wire’s insulation
• Capture LIN and other communications signals
• Measure signals from electric equipment on vehicles

Ideal for applications where:

• Miniaturization of devices and use of waterproof connectors make it impossible to establish contact with metal terminals
• Connectors can’t be removed due to reduced ability to reproduce phenomena
• There is need to avoid tearing the wire insulation so as to prevent risk of damage to the sensor due to static electricity

A comment from the Good Design Award 2017

“First, this award recognizes Hioki’s proprietary no-metal-contact measurement technology, which allows measurement of voltage waveforms from outside a wire’s insulation, without any need to make contact with a metal terminal. Further, it recognizes the product’s technology and design, for example in terms of the implementation of that technology in an instrument that can be applied to wires single-handedly in confined locations and designers’ success in creating a small, hands-free probe that need not be supported by the end-user.”
