Display Window (Oscilloscope)

Last Modified: December 14, 2018

The Oscilloscope displays both the time-domain data and the frequency-domain data on the left side of the panel. Use cursors to measure a given point on a trace, or compare the differences between two points. Use the Measurements pane to take measurements of a channel.

You can select one of the three modes for a cursor:

Cursor Mode Description
Off Turns off the cursors.
Manual Cursors positions are not restricted to the acquired data points on a trace.
Track Cursor positions are restricted to the acquired data points on a trace.

When Cursors is set to Manual or Track, a table appears above the display with the following data:

Column Description
C1 Displays the time and amplitude readings for Cursor 1.
C2 Displays the time and amplitude readings for Cursor 2.
| t2 - t1 | Displays the absolute value of the time and amplitude readings for C2 - C1.
1 / ( | t2 - t1 | ) Displays the value of 1/(|t2 - t1|).

The Measurements pane displays the measurements of channels, including the peak-to-peak voltage, RMS, frequency, and period. To turn on or turn off a measurement, click the configuration button on the top right of the pane, and then select/deselect the measurement you want to turn on/off.
