How do you use a Tektronix oscilloscope?

Oscilloscope Instructions

  1. Set the oscilloscope to display channel 1.
  2. Set the vertical volts/division scale and position controls to mid–range positions.
  3. Turn off the variable volts/division.
  4. Turn off all magnification settings.
  5. Set the channel 1 input coupling to DC.
  6. Set the trigger mode to auto.

How do you measure gain on an oscilloscope?

You may measure the gain or amplification of a circuit using both channel one and channel two of the oscilloscope. You will monitor the input signal with one channel and the output signal with the other. The difference between the amplitudes of these two signals indicates the gain.

How do you set gain by ear?

The quick and easy way to set the gain is by ear while playing music. Most manufacturers recommend playing familiar music with the amp gain low, raising the receiver’s volume until the music distorts, then backing it off until the music sounds clean again.

What is the main part of the oscilloscope?

An analog oscilloscope is typically divided into four sections: the display, vertical controls, horizontal controls and trigger controls. The display is usually a CRT with horizontal and vertical reference lines called the graticule.

What can we measure with oscilloscope?

An oscilloscope is an instrument that graphically displays electrical signals and shows how those signals change over time. Engineers use oscilloscopes to measure electrical phenomena and quickly test, verify, and debug their circuit designs. The primary function of an oscilloscope is to measure voltage waves.

Where is the duty cycle on an oscilloscope?

The Oscilloscope mode Duty cycle is defined as the ratio of positive pulse width to the period. This is the percentage of the period that the positive pulse width occupies, or (+ Pulse Width/Period) x (100). Therefore, duty cycle is displayed as a percentage (%).

What should my LPF be set at?

As a general rule, the Low-Pass Filter should be set at a value approximately equal to (or below) 70% of your main speaker’s lowest frequency response. For example, your speaker’s frequency response goes down to 43Hz. 70% of 43Hz equals 30.1, so you should set the subwoofer’s low pass filter to 30Hz.

What should I know about setting up an oscilloscope?

Setting oscilloscope controls, calibrating the oscilloscope, connecting oscilloscope probes, and compensating the probes are also described, along with basic oscilloscope measurement techniques. Proper grounding is an important step when you set up to take measurements or work on a circuit:

What are the controls on a mixed signal oscilloscope?

The front panel of a Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) will also have digital inputs. Some oscilloscopes have AUTOSET and/or DEFAULT buttons that can set up the controls in one step to accommodate a signal.

What should be the channel division of an oscilloscope?

Adjust channel 1 volts/division such that the signal occupies as much of the 10 vertical divisions as possible without clipping or signal distortion. In addition to proper oscilloscope setup, periodic instrument self-calibration is recommended for accurate measurements.
