Found in labs and workshops across a diverse range of engineering professions, modern oscilloscopes are faster, more precise and more affordable than ever. Many people new to oscilloscopes can be lulled into laxity by the ease of use of today’s instruments and default to a scope’s autoset factory settings. In reality, doing accurate work with an oscilloscope requires foundational knowledge, and starting with the basics is key. The initial step in any user’s journey should always be to learn the details of an oscilloscope’s manual controls, including:
- Horizontal and acquisition controls
- Vertical controls
- Trigger control
Join Tektronix Field Applications Engineer Alan Wolke to learn how to manually adjust these controls to ensure accurate readings from the start. Wolke will also walk attendees through a few common problems related to probing signals, the different ways to fix them and the steps you should take to avoid them in the future.
