In our Microcontroller based embedded module, we have motor controller that drives DC motors which in-turn move load. Our load is Third row SUV seat.
I used Fluke Multimeter to measure motor voltage that is applied to the motor. I measured voltage between Motor Positive and Motor Negative Pins on our module.
Initially seat was stowed. When I press the unstow button, seat started to unstow, and voltage was -13V. The seat was suppose to stop at folded position but after reaching folded or close to folded position, it lifted up about 45 degrees. While lifting up, voltage was +13V.
I believe dc motor draws very high current for very short duration when it changes direction. My question is will my oscilloscope get damaged when motor changes direction. I'm wondering if high current will be drawn by the oscilloscope and damage it.
