Is the CRO Set Up Correctly?


Step One: Switching the CRO On


Step Two: Ensuring the CRO is Calibrated Correctly


Step Three: Are the Trace Position and Appearance Adjusted

  1. First we set the AC-GND-DC for both Channels A and B to GND. (this should allow us to see a horizontal line across the display)
  2. Finally to check that the traces for both channels are correctly positioned we can set the Mode Selection Switch to DUAL which will allow us to view both traces on the display
  • As we can see, both traces are in the exact same vertical and horizontal positions as the diagram on the left seems to have only one trace visible.

Step Four: Checking that the CRO is Triggered Correctly
