monitoring the EUT current during a test, an additional IEC adaptor with the
safety banana connectors can be connected to the generator EUT output for
observation of one lead at a time.
The nominal ratio is:
500:1 (into 1 MΩ system)
or
1000:1 (into 50 Ω system) this is equal 1 V / 1000 A on scope.
3.2 MD 310
The MD 310 probe is specially adapted to verify Slow Damped Oscillatory Wave
current pulses as specified in IEC / EN 61000-4-18 or ANSI / IEEE C37.90.1 and
their derivates.
The main advantage of the MD 310 current probe is, that the measuring system
is physically isolated from the circuit under test.
The MD 310 current probe is ready to use. It comes with a pre-mounted coaxial
cable as well as the conductor carrying the SOW current to be measured. The
BNC-end plug needs to be connected to the high-impedance input or 50 Ω
input of an ordinary memory oscilloscope. Then the conductor carrying the
SOW current to be measured needs to be connected between the EUT Power
Output. The resulting voltage wave shape on the oscilloscope will then be an
authentically reproduction of the actual current wave shape within the given
accuracy.

Optional FISCHER connectors are available for matching the safety banana connectors of the shorting cable to the Surge Output of the generator.
The nominal ratio is:
10:1 (into 1 MΩ system)
or
20:1 (into 50 Ω system) ; this is equal 1 V/20 A on a scope.

5OPERATION
Never attempt to connect or disconnect the probe while
the generator is running.
Operation of a surge generator without a protective
earth connection is forbidden!
The surge current conductor must be insulated adequately for its voltage level.
The conductive part of the current probe is insulated.
Connect the BNC end of the probe’s coax cable to your oscilloscope.
To prevent measurement errors, care has to be taken
to the direction of the current flow which has to be in
line with the arrow sign on the probe.

5.1 Short-circuit current pulse verification
High peak current flows trough the probe! To protect
against electrical shock, use only proper adapters,
cables and accessories.
Depending on the surge generator model, either the LEMO type or the FISCHERconnectors have got to be connected to the surge high and surge low output
of the generator. Some generator might have safety banana plug connectors;
therefore the short cable can be used.
Use the short cable and put one end trough the hole of the probe and connect
one end to the surge high and the other end to the surge low connector.

5.2 Current pulse measurement during test
High peak current flows trough the probe! To protect
against electrical shock, use only proper adapters,
cables and accessories.
During a surge test procedure, one lead at a time can be observed by usingthe
optional EUT connector with the safety banana connectors. On the other end
the EUT under test has to be connected. The two 6 mm adaptors can be used
e.g. for EUT with screwed terminals

7TERMES
Sensitivity
The considerations here involve the peak current to be measured, the oscilloscope sensitivity, and trade-offs imposed by other specifications.
Maximum peak current
This value is based primarily on the voltage-breakdown rating of the connector
used. For instance, a 500 V rating on the connector gives a 5000 Amp peak
current rating for a 0.1 volt-per-ampere current monitor.
Maximum RMS current
This value is based on heating considerations involving the long term stability
of the internal resistance element in the current monitor.
Approximate low and high frequency 3 dB points
Due to the ac nature of current probes, the flat midband response will roll off
at low frequency. The «corner» or «cut-off» frequency, at which the response is
3 dB down, is specified. Internal resonances determine the useful high frequency cut off point. Response is within ±3 dB at the specified high frequency
limit.

8CLEANING
Use a soft cloth, lightly fluid or lightly detergent to clean off any dirt. Take care
not to damage the probe
Do not immerse the probe in water
Avoid using abrasive cleaners
Avoid using chemicals containing benzene or similar solvents
