Introduction
Introduction
The HVD3000 series high-voltage active differential probes are safe, easy-to-use, and ideally
suited for power electronics applications where the reference potential is elevated from
ground. The probes feature:
l
Differential voltage measurement capability in high common-mode environments
(up to 6kVrms)
l
Exceptional common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR) across a broad frequency range
l
Wide differential voltage range
l
High offset voltage capability
l
1% DC and low frequency gain accuracy
l
AC or DC coupling
l
ProBus interface with automatic scaling
l
Auto Zero capabilities
The CMRR for the probes is exceptional out to very high frequencies. This greatly assists in
measuring signals in the noisy, high common-mode environments of power electronics. High
CMRR combined with low probe noise and high offset capability makes the probes capable of
measuring very small control signals floating on high common-mode voltages.
Specifications are provided for using each probe within a wide differential voltage range, and
the probe can be safely operated even above this range. The probes will display signal up to the
measurable differential voltage before the saturation limit, although the specifications cannot
be guaranteed. Within the specified range, the probe is operating below the saturation point of
the amplifier, and very reasonable results can be expected.
The probes are calibrated for high-precision measurements to within 1% at DC to low
frequency (~10 kHz). This provides for high accuracy of top and base voltage levels of pulsewidth modulated signals. The AutoZero capability permits further measurement precision by
allowing small offset drifts to be calibrated out of the measurement.
All HVD3000 probes are compatible with any Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope equipped with the
ProBus interface. The ProBus interface makes the probe an integral part of the oscilloscope.
Power is provided to the probe through the interface, so there is no need for a separate power
supply or batteries. Attenuation is automatically selected based on the oscilloscope gain range
(V/div) setting, and the offset adjust is unified with that of the oscilloscope (maximum offset
depends on the V/div setting and the oscilloscope model). In general, Teledyne LeCroy 12-bit
High Resolution Oscilloscopes (HRO) and HD4096 High Definition Oscilloscopes (HDO) provide
the most offset capability over the widest range of V/div settings.
The HVD310x probes require XStream™ software version 7.4 or greater. The HVD3206 and
HVD3605 probes require XStream software version 7.8 or greater.

Functional Test Procedure
This procedure should be performed to confirm the basic operation of an HVD3000 series
probe, or to aid in determining the source of a problem rather than to verify the accuracy of the
probe. You can perform the Functional Test without removing the probe covers.
Other than a Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope, no special test equipment is required for the
functional test.
1. Connect the probe to any vertical channel on the oscilloscope.
2. Select the channel to which the probe is connected.
3. Touch AUTO ZERO on the probe dialog.
4. If necessary, adjust the OFFSET to 0.000 V.
5. Using accessory clips, attach the red clip to the + CAL out and the black clip to the ground
post of the CAL out signal. For oscilloscopes with the CAL signal on a BNC connector, a
BNC-to-Banana adapter (e.g., Pomona model 1296) may be used.
6. Press AUTOSETUP.
7. Set the sensitivity of the probe to 1 V/Div.
8. Set the CAL output to 1 Vp-p square wave.
9. Verify that the displayed square wave is 1 Vp-p centered at +0.5 V.
10. Reverse the accessory leads on CAL out and verify that the displayed square wave is still 1
V, but is now centered at –0.5 V.
11. Change the COUPLING on the channel setup dialog to Grounded to verify that the signal
disappears and that the trace is still centered on the screen.
12. Verify that the probe attenuation shows the following:
l
x100 for HVD3102
l
x50 for HVD3106 and HVD3206
l
x200 for HVD3605
13. Set the VOLTS/DIV to 100 V.
14. Verify that the probe attenuation now shows:
20
l
x1K for HVD3102
l
x500 for HVD3106 and HVD3206
l
x2K for HVD3605
Performance Verification Procedure
Performance Verification Procedure
This procedure can be used to verify the warranted characteristics of an HVD3000 series
probe. If the product does not meet specifications, it should be returned to a Teledyne LeCroy
service center. As there are no user accessible adjustments, there is no adjustment procedure.
Required Equipment
The following table lists the test equipment and accessories (or their equivalents) that are
required for performance verification of the probe. This procedure is designed to minimize the
number of calibrated test instruments required. Because the input and output connector
types may vary on different brands and models of test instruments, additional adapters or
cables may be required. Only the parameters listed in boldface in the "Minimum requirements"
column must be calibrated to the accuracy indicated.

Operation
Operation
Connecting to the Test Instrument
The HVD3000 Series probes have been designed for use with Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes
equipped with the ProBus interface. When you attach the probe output connector to the
oscilloscope’s input connector, the instrument will:
l
Recognize the probe
l
Set the oscilloscope input termination to 1 MΩ
l
Activate the probe control functions in the oscilloscope user interface.
NOTE: For accurate measurements, connect the probe to the oscilloscope and allow to warm
up for at least 20 minutes. Perform Auto Zero prior to connecting the probe to the DUT.
Connecting to the Test Circuit
Two inputs are available at the probe tip to connect the probe to a circuit under test. For
accurate measurements, both the + and – inputs must be connected to the test circuit.
Positive voltages applied to the + input (red) relative to the – input (black) will deflect the
oscilloscope trace toward the top of the screen.
To maintain the probe's high performance capability, exercise care when connecting the probe.
Increasing the parasitic capacitance or inductance in the input paths may introduce a “ring” or
slow the rise time of fast signals. Input leads that form a large loop area will pick up any
radiated electromagnetic field that passes through the loop and may induce noise into the
probe inputs. Because this signal will appear as a differential mode signal, the probe’s common
mode rejection will not remove it. This effect can be reduced by twisting the input leads
together to minimize the loop area.
WARNING. To avoid electric shock or fire, maintain the input leads in good condition.
The leads have a jacket wear indicator that shows through when the jacket is
excessively worn. If the white "WEAR" indicator on the input leads is visible, cease use
and contact Teledyne LeCroy service for repair or replacement.
High common mode rejection requires precise matching of the relative gain or attenuation in
the + and – input signal paths. Mismatches in additional parasitic capacitance, inductance,
delay, and a source impedance difference between the + and – signals will lower the CMRR.
Therefore, it is desirable to use the same length and type of wire and connectors for both input
connections. When possible, try to connect the inputs to points in the circuit with
approximately the same source impedance.
The probes may be stacked on one top of another during usage to conserve space. Since the
probe body generates heat, and the stacking reduces cooling, it is recommended that ambient
temperatures not exceed 30 degrees C while stacked probes are in operation. The exceptional
CMRR performance should prevent interference between probes when they are stacked, but
25
HVD3000 Series High-Voltage Differential Probes Operator's Manual
take care to separate the probe leads during operation.
WARNING. To avoid electric shock or fire, keep the probe body and output cable away
from the circuits being measured, as they cannot provide adequate protection if they
come in contact with electrical sources.
Operating with an Oscilloscope
When the probe is connected to a Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope, the displayed scale factor and
measurement values will be adjusted to account for the effective gain of the probe. The
probe’s internal attenuation is shown on the Probe dialog, which is added to the oscilloscope's
input channel dialogs when a probe is detected.
Channel setup dialog with Probe dialog behind it.
Probe dialog.
Probe Volts/Div and Attenuation
The front panel Volts/Div knob controls the oscilloscope’s scale factor and the probe’s internal
attenuation to give full available dynamic range. Some transition of the scale factor will result in
a change of attenuation.
Offset
Offset allows you to remove a DC bias voltage from the differential input signal while
maintaining DC coupling. This ensures that the probe will never be overdriven while a signal is
displayed on screen and prevents inaccurate measurements.
The total usable offset of the oscilloscope and probe system is a function of the oscilloscope
V/div setting, oscilloscope offset at that V/div setting, probe attenuation, and probe offset at
that attenuation setting, and this total maximum offset may be calculated.
First, it is necessary to know the oscilloscope front end V/div setting with the probe
26
Operation
connected. This may be calculated as follows:
Oscilloscope Front End V/Div = (Probe and Oscilloscope) V/Div ÷ Probe_Attenuation
Once the oscilloscope front end V/div value is known, then it is possible to know the maximum
offset available in the oscilloscope at this V/div setting either by referencing the oscilloscope
specifications or setting the maximum offset value on the oscilloscope for that V/div setting.
Then, the maximum offset available with the probe and oscilloscope combination can be
calculated as:
Max Positive Offset Available
Max Positive Offset (Probe and Oscilloscope together) =
Oscilloscope Positive Offset (at Oscilloscope Front End V/div) * Probe Attenuation – 10V
Max Negative Offset Available
Max Negative Offset (Probe and Oscilloscope together) =
Oscilloscope Negative Offset (at Oscilloscope Front End V/div) * Probe Attenuation + 10V
In both cases, the maximum offset available cannot exceed the following:

NOTE: The offset values reported in the oscilloscope's channel descriptor box may deviate
slightly from expected values, based on calculations per the formulas above. The reported
probe attenuation is a "nominal" value and can deviate slightly from the actual value measured
during calibration and stored with the probe. The actual offset value reported uses the actual
"as measured" probe attenuation value. This provides for higher DC and low frequency gain
accuracy than would otherwise be possible.
AC Coupling
In general, using offset to adjust a differential DC voltage on the screen is the preferred
method to measure transient signals in the presence of a larger DC voltage. The offset has
limits that will cause a signal that is beyond the linear operating range of the probe to go off
the screen, preventing measurement errors.
There are times, however, when it is convenient to use AC coupling to remove the DC
component of the measured signal from the measurement. Selecting AC10MΩ uses the scope
AC coupling at the probe output to remove any steady state value from the displayed voltage.
The maximum linear input voltage is as follows:

NOTE: Since this AC coupling is on the probe output, DC voltages beyond the linear range of
the probe will cause the amplifier to saturate and make the displayed waveform inaccurate. It is
important not to exceed the maximum linear input values when using AC coupling.
Bandwidth Limiting
To comply with various test standards used for quantifying output noise of power supplies,
the probe is capable of switching the bandwidth limit from Off (maximum bandwidth) to 20
MHz in the channel Vertical Adjust dialog.
Auto Zero
Auto Zero corrects for DC offset drifts that naturally occur from thermal effects in the
amplifier. The probe incorporates Auto Zero capability to remove the DC offset from the
probe's differential amplifier output to improve the measurement accuracy. Auto Zero is
invoked manually from the Probe dialog that appears behind the Channel setup dialog when
the probe is connected to the oscilloscope.
NOTE: Remove the probe from the test circuit before performing Auto Zero.
Always perform Auto Zero after probe warm-up (recommended warm-up time is 20 minutes).
Depending on the measurement accuracy desired and/or the change in the ambient
temperature where the probe is located, it may be necessary to perform Auto Zero more often.
If the probe is disconnected from the oscilloscope and re-connected, repeat Auto Zero after a
suitable warm-up time.
For example, the DC offset drift of the HVD310x probes is 70 μV/°C (worst-case) referred to the
output. If the probe is set to 50x attenuation and the ambient temperature changes by 10°C,
then the DC offset drive could be as high as (70 μV/°C)(50)(10°C) = 35mV (referenced to the
probe tip). If the probe is being used to measure a 3Vp-p signal, then the DC offset drift in this
case could be a little more than 1%. If the signal measured was 1400Vp-p in 500x attenuation
mode, then the DC offset (in the same ambient temperature condition) could be as high as (70
μV/°C)(500)(10°C) = 350 mV due to the probe tip, but any offset accuracy error from the
oscilloscope itself would likely dominate the measurement.
Auto Zero is disabled when AC coupling is selected.

Maintenance
Maintenance
Cleaning
Clean only the exterior surfaces of the device using a soft cloth or swab dampened with water
or 75% isopropyl alcohol solution. Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleansers. Dry the
probe and accessories thoroughly before making any voltage measurements.
CAUTION. The HVD3000 probes are not waterproof. Under no circumstances
submerge the probe in liquid or allow moisture to penetrate it.
Calibration Interval
This probe has no adjustments. The recommended calibration interval is one year. A
Performance Verification Procedure is included in this manual.
Service Strategy
The HVD3000 series probes utilize fine-pitch surface mount devices. It is, therefore,
impractical to attempt repair in the field. Defective probes must be returned to a Teledyne
LeCroy service facility for diagnosis and exchange.
CAUTION. Do not remove the covers. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel.
A defective probe under warranty will be replaced with a factory refurbished probe.
Replacement probes are factory repaired, inspected, and calibrated to the same standards as a
new product.
A probe that is not under warranty can be exchanged for a factory refurbished probe for a
modest fee. You must return the defective probe in order to receive credit for the probe core.

HVD3000 Series High-Voltage Differential Probes Operator's Manual
Reference
Common Mode Rejection Ratio
The ideal differential probe/amplifier would sense and amplify only the differential mode
voltage component and reject the entire common mode voltage component. Real differential
amplifiers are not perfect, and a small portion of the common mode voltage component
appears at the output.
Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR) is the measure of how much the amplifier rejects the
common mode voltage component. CMRR is equal to the differential mode gain (or normal
gain) divided by the common mode gain. Common mode gain is equal to the output voltage
divided by the input voltage when both inputs are driven by only the common mode signal.
CMRR can be expressed as a ratio (e.g., 10,000:1) or implicitly in dB (e.g., 80 dB). Higher
numbers indicate greater rejection (better performance).
The first order term determining the CMRR is the relative gain matching between the + and –
input paths. Obtain high CMRR values by precisely matching the input attenuators in a
differential amplifier. The matching includes the DC attenuation and the capacitance which
determines the AC attenuation. As the frequency of the common mode component increases,
the effects of stray parasitic capacitance and inductance in determining the AC component
become more pronounced. The CMRR becomes smaller as the frequency increases. Therefore,
the CMRR is usually specified in a graph of CMRR versus common mode frequency.
The common mode frequency in these graphs is assumed to be sinusoidal. In real life
applications, the common mode signal is seldom a pure sine wave. Signals with pulse wave
shapes contain frequency components much higher than the repetition rate may suggest.
This makes it very difficult to predict actual performance in the application for CMRR-versusfrequency graphs. The practical application of these graphs is to compare the relative common
mode rejection performance between different probes and amplifiers.
Differential Mode and Common Mode
Differential probes sense the voltage difference that appears between the + and – inputs. This
is referred to as the Differential or Normal Mode voltage. The voltage component that is
referenced to earth and is identical on both inputs is rejected by the amplifier. This is referred
to as the Common Mode voltage and can be expressed as:
32
Reference
Differential Mode Range and Common Mode Range
Differential Mode range is the maximum signal that can be applied between the + and - inputs
without overloading the amplifier, which otherwise would result in clipping or distorting of the
waveform measured by the oscilloscope.
The Common Mode Range is the maximum voltage with respect to earth ground that can be
applied to either input. Exceeding the common mode range can result in unpredictable
measurements. Because the Common Mode signal is normally rejected, and not displayed on
the oscilloscope, be careful to avoid accidentally exceeding the common mode range.
