Capacitive coupling clamp not working as expected

  1. May 19, 2017 #1
    I just made a capacitive coupling clamp with aluminium. When I fed a burst signal of 500V, I could only see 6V across the plates. I have used 1.5mm thickness aluminium sheet. Why its not working as expected?

    Nice, an EN 61000-4-4 Burst clamp for IO lines. What is the source impedance of your source? Can you post a schematic?
