Using Electronic Test Equipment, Part 2

5.0 1 Review SKU: ACCDA20CENDuration: 60 Minutes

This course is designed to familiarize participants with the basic operation and use of digital and analog oscilloscopes. After completing this course, participants should be able to explain what an oscilloscope does, explain how to set up an oscilloscope for use, identify the controls used to adjust an oscilloscope display, and explain how to use an oscilloscope to make voltage measurements and time measurements.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the operation of a typical cathode ray tube (CRT).
  • List and explain the function of each major display section control on a typical oscilloscope.
  • Determine the number of vertical or horizontal divisions that a displayed signal occupies on the graticule of an oscilloscope.
  • Describe the function of the following vertical section controls on a typical oscilloscope: vertical coupling, vertical mode, vertical positioning, and volts per division.
  • Using a preliminary adjustment procedure, preset the major display and vertical section controls.
  • Identify the following types of waveforms: straight line (DC voltage), sine wave, square wave, sawtooth, and pulse.
  • Describe the procedure for compensating an oscilloscope probe.
  • Measure the amplitude of the waveforms listed above.
  • Describe how the horizontal section controls regulate the time aspect of an oscilloscope's display.
  • Describe the function of the following typical horizontal section controls: source, horizontal coupling, slope, level (horizontal mode), and time per division.
  • Using a preliminary adjustment procedure, preset the major horizontal section controls.
  • Define the term "period time" as it relates to a signal and explain how period time is used to calculate frequency.
  • Given a waveform on an oscilloscope display, determine its frequency.
  • Given information about a signal's waveform, amplitude, and frequency, correctly preset the oscilloscope controls.
  • Properly secure an oscilloscope.
