Test probes recommendation
« on: October 21, 2018, 09:23:26 am »
Hi guys
I have a frequency counter (HP5315a) but no probes.
Im going to use this for calibration purposes of audio gear only (synthesizers, drum machines, etc etc)
I’m a bit confused as to which probes to use.
Would anyone recommend something ?

Can I use this one maybe ?

You should be fine with bnc to alligator-clips for audio range, no need for an oscilloscope probe for high bandwidth.

I agree with alligator clips for audio use.  You can also have an unterminated BNC connector/cable and solder when necessary.  Probes are usually not used for frequency counters.

This is basically the same as what I use most of the time. I got all mine separately though, and from different sources, so I can't vouch for the quality of these.
