But the last time I did it looked like sine wave!!But I guess it's time!!!
OK, I just powered up the scope in the shop(at the FM radio station where I work) and put the scope probe into the AC line socket. What did I see??? I saw a nice CLEAN 60hz sine wave, just as nice and clean as it can be. I'm in a downtown Chicago office building, electronic equipment all around me, above and below, it's everywhere, it's everywhere!!!! But when I scope the raw AC line voltage all I see is nice clean sine wave!!!
Just for fun I plugged a Black and Decker saber saw into the SAME outlet!!! Then I turn the saw on and scoped the AC line voltage!!! Oh woe is me, what have I done to my clean sine wave????? Well nothing it looked the same just as nice and clean as could be.
This power conditioning is becoming just so much FUD!!!!!!
