Just wondering , i have a question can someone please tell me is it possible to use a Load Pro with a Power probe Maestro i have bought of them just wondering would they be able to work together connected and how exactly would i go about connecting them together so they my work with each other thanks in advance for any help .

The right answer is no. But, I will buy you lunch if you seek out Dan Sullivan on linkedin and ask him.

You may be misinterpreting the purpose of each of these tools. Until then, I don't recommend connecting them together. Maybe I'm misinterpreting what you are trying to accomplish. I'd say read-up on their intended uses and or watch the product videos. Be very careful with live / connected computer controlled components and circuit's.

I'm using load pro and I'm following the Dan recommendations for now all ok, nice tool. I think is not a good idea mix the tools as you want.

I like the load pro for what it is. Simple effective and decent price for a pretty good set of meter leads. There was a discussion somewhere at one point where the posters were able to make the load pro leads ineffective, but I have not experienced that. Check for available voltage and push a button to simulate load.

The reasoning behind the question , i would like to have one tool to do most electric electronic testing with these two tools in combination i can do most of the testing without anything else . Adding the Loadpro with a Powerprode gives me the capability of at least adding some load testing without having to grab another tool i would think that should be of some benefit . Just wanted to try…

If you can use the setup to read voltage through the meter leads it should work as its designed. If it pulls ground from the battery clamps instead of the black lead it may not work. I would probably use the scope or trace function monitor voltage and then push the button. If you want to test it use a resistor or a bulb connected to power and the red lead, then connect the black to ground, there…

Good question!I have a Powerprobe III and a Load Pro but never thought or had a need to combine the 2.I'm following to see if in can happen.

the loadpro test leads are to be used with a voltmeter and do a 0.500 amp voltage drop...the maestro is a voltmeter ...so just get an adapter to connect the loadpro test lead set to the maestro...i personally would not do it....because the power probe can but out some major amperage and the loadpro lead set would not survive... you should watch Dan Sullivan' s (inventor of the loadpro) youtube…

As Ken is saying I would not recommend using the load pro leads for power output or actively commanding. I would limit its usage to testing with the scope function.

Thanks again i would definitely only be applying the load test through the load pro's and not the power or ground actuation's from the power probe until i can get a better understand of getting them to work together safely .

Thank you for the advice , could you give me some options on those adapters to connect the load pro test lead set to the maestro possibly where i could find them and which ones would be best thanks again .

The biggest issue with the Loadpro is the relatively small load and limited use. If I were in the market for a tool such as this, Id buy the Droplink Probe: bluelinkdiag​.​com/droplink

It would be good to get Mister Sullivan's input because I think his tool is fantastic especially in combination with the power probe thank you .
