Figure 7.16 shows various controls and Typical CRT Connections. The following controls are available on CRO panel.

Typical CRT Connections

  1. Intensity It controls the magnitude of emission of the electron, beam, i.e. the electron beam is adjusted by varying the cathode-to-grid bias volt­age. This adjustment is (folk by the 500 KΩ potentiometer
  2. Focus The focusing anode potential is adjusted with respect to the first and final accelerating anodes. This is done by the 2 MΩ It adjusts the negative voltage on the focus ring between —500 V and —900 V.
  3. Astigmatism It adjusts the voltage on the acceleration anode with respect to the VDP of the CRT. This arrangement forms a cylindrical lens that corrects any defocusing that might be present. This adjustment is made to obtain the roundest spot on the screen.
  4. X-shift or Horizontal Position Control The X-position of the spot is adjusted by varying the voltage between the horizontal plates. When the spot i$ in the centre position, the two horizontal plates have the same
  5. Y-shift or Vertical Position Control The X-position of the spot is adjusted by varying the voltage between the vertical plates. When the spot is in the centre position, the two vertical plates have the same potential.
  6. Time Base Control This is obtained by varying the CT and RT of the time base generator.
  7. Sync Selector It can synchronise the sweep to signals coming internally from the vertical amplifier or an external signal or the line supply Int­Ext-Line switch.
