I MEANT SHORTEST PATH THROUGH AIR! 😂 Also "electricity takes the path of least resistance" is wrong! It goes more into the path of least resistance, but it still goes through the higher resistance too. But in the air it breaks though shortest path, then I guess it curls as the air heats up... hmmm, something to check there

@Secret I made no comment on whether they should or shouldn’t. I merely said it’s best to be clear about it: this will avoid negative reactions from individuals who thought they could participate (though, admittedly, that’s not an issue for me — I still hold Keysight in high esteem); it will also avoid a lot of unnecessary traffic through their website and, I suspect, their support etc. Even now, it is not clear as the comment from them above suggested I simply write “Self” in the company field though the rest of the form options are still not suited to individuals. It would be unfortunate if either (a) people who were eligible and willing failed to participate due to this ambiguity or (b) people who weren’t eligible entered and were selected and Keysight would have to redraw or similar. It’s perfectly fine that they only give away to organisations and influential people but that should be clear from the outset to the benefit of everybody.

3:50 Mehdi didn't really explain the specifics here, so for anyone interested: What this is depicting is step voltage - basically because the ground is relatively high resistance the point where the high voltage source contacts winds up at or near that voltage, and the voltage reduces the further away from the source, similar to a resistive voltage divider. The danger is if you take a step towards or away from the voltage source then your feet will be at 2 different voltage potentials, and your body is far more conductive than the ground so this can result in enough of a voltage difference to kill you.

@Albtraum Same as hopping - single point contact with the ground. Time it wrong and have both feet touching though and you're likely in trouble because leaping implies a longer stride length than just walking, which would mean an even higher step voltage

Hey ElectroBOOM, have you ever seen those videos of people managing to display video signals on their oscilloscopes? It might be a good idea to experiment with, hoping you have old analog composite or component cables (the YWR, or RGB ones) and a video source. Or maybe doing it in reverse and seeing if you can just turn any old television you may have laying around into some sort of x-y oscilloscope?

Actually, power strips do you have an expiration date. Specifically, the power strips that are surge protectors. How long depends upon the strip and what quality of power you’re dealing with. Two years is a little short, but I’d replace them all after five years.

I don't know all the details, but I thought MOVs that they use in typical surge protectors wear out over time, and there isn't a way to test if they've failed without destroying them in the process. Hence you need to replace surge protectors with some regularity to be sure that it will function as desired. The flip side of this is if you buy good ones they have lifetime warranties and really a lightning strike isn't going to be completely stopped by almost anything so really what you're buying is the warranty, so it's not worth worrying about.

Disclaimer: This is from my experience with good and bad power strips, obviously I cannot confirm if a particular brand or model is well built or not, even the same make and model that I have may have undergone major design changes or be outsourced from a different factory. Always do your own research, check the reviews, google the model (use the barcode if available) to see if there was a recall, suspect if the price is too good to be true... It wears out very slowly unless the mains supply is really "dirt" but in a good power strip (or whatever application) design it's usually not the end of the world because each MOV will be in series with a ceramic/plastic housing thermal fuse which is mechanically clamped to the body of the MOV via heat shrink tubing or some similar method, in this way as soon as the varistor approaches the temperature at which the plastic of the strip could begin to soften, the fuse opens, interrupting the flow of current through the MOV and rendering the strip unusable. That is the case with any power strip manufactured or distributed by well-known manufacturers of electrical and computer equipment. Even if there is no thermal fuse, nothing serious should happen if the plastic casing and the other components of the power strip are made of fire retardant materials, in which case the MOV will disintegrate into dust or just explode depending on gravity of the glitch, but just making some crackling noise and releasing some magical smoke. If you have an unknown brand or you suspect that it may be an imitation, you may have to disassemble it to see how it is built, the good quality ones have screws, even if they have security heads and cannot be easily removed, if the case halves are welded/glued it can be assumed that it is so cheaply made that they couldn't even afford the screws and/or don't want you to see how poorly built it is. Some of these low quality ones can even degrade in a few months exposed to sunlight (even through a glass window) and although at first glance they appear to be in good condition and may have not discolored, when you go to pick them up in your hand the plastic will disintegrate leaving you holding the exposed live (deadly) conductors.
