Oscilloscope Operating Precautions

Oscilloscope Operating Precautions: In addition to the general safety precautions, the following specific precautions should be observed when operating any type of oscilloscope. Most of the Oscilloscope Operating Precautions also apply to recorders. Always study the instruction manual of any oscilloscope with which you are not familiar even if you have had considerable experience with […]

Fibre Optic CRT Recording Oscilloscope

Fibre Optic CRT Recording Oscilloscope: Fibre Optic CRT Recording Oscilloscope – The familiar CRT oscilloscope has an extremely HF response, but permanent records, normally photography of the screen, cannot be taken, since they are time limited to one sweep. By combining a special fibre optic CRT with an oscillograph type paper drive (which passes the […]

Digital Storage Oscilliscope

Digital Storage Oscilliscope(DSO): Digital Storage Oscilliscope are available in processing and non-processing types. Processing types include built in computing power, which takes advantage of the fact that all data is already in digital form. The inclusion of interfacing and a microprocessor provides a complete system for information acquisition, analysis and output. Processing capability ranges from […]

Applications of Oscilloscope

Applications of Oscilloscope: Applications of Oscilloscope – The range of applications of an oscilloscope varies from basic voltage measurements and waveform observation to highly specialised applications in all areas of science, engineering and technology. Voltage Measurements The most direct voltage measurement made with the help of an oscilloscope is the peak to peak (p—p) value. […]

Attenuators

Attenuators: Attenuators are designed to change the magnitude of the input signal seen at the input stage, while presenting a constant impedance on all ranges at the attenuator input. A compensated RC attenuator is required to attenuate all frequencies equally. Without this compensation, HF signal measurements would always have to take the input circuit RC […]

Probes for CRO

Probes for CRO-Direct Probes (1 : 1): Probes for CRO – The simplest types of probe (one can hardly call it a probe) is the test lead. Test leads are simply convenient lengths of wire for connecting the CRO input to the point of observation. At the CRO end, they usually terminate with lugs, banana tips […]
