It’s finally here! The first Solar Roadways installation happened in Sandpoint Idaho after $3.9M in funding and 6.5 years of development. Does it work? Is it practical?
Once again, Dave runs the numbers…
A viewer found an EMC issue with the Keysight U1272A multimeter
Dave confirms both conducted and coupled issues and finds some spooky action at a distance!
Comparisons with other meters confirm they don’t have the same issue.

How does a high voltage differential probe work? How is it safe? Is it isolated? A teardown and some reverse engineering of the Lecroy AP031 25MHz HV Differential probe. a.k.a Sapphire Instruments SI-9001 Forum HERE
Dave takes a look at how to optimise the low burden voltage multimeter design from PART 2 to eliminate some parts.
And explains the µCurrent shunt circuit design and how that applies to this new optimised design.
It’s basically a practical tu[...]

Dave looks at the current measurement front end of a typical multimeter and figures out how to redesign it for lower burden voltage.
It’s not quite as easy as you might think, there are comprimises and traps for your players.
And something you[...]
