Voltage Test [resolved]
« on: April 09, 2022, 11:09:02 AM »
Hi,

I am just starting with my Kaiju (Limited Edition, Walnut). I did a voltage test at the beginning and tested:

1/ 119.3 volts when plugged in and Switch is On.
2/ 1.7 volts when plugged in and Switch is Off
3/ 0.02 volts when plugged off and Switch off.

The measuring device is a Fluke.

Is this normal? Shouldn't I get 0 volts in both 2 and 3 above?

Thanks.

Your DVM has a very high input impedance and is happy to measure induced 60Hz noise, so what you're seeing isn't abnormal.
