Channel Settings (Oscilloscope)

Last Modified: May 17, 2019

You can configure channels by using the channel settings.

The layout of the settings may vary depending on the device from which you launch the SFP. Some settings are hidden by default. Click the expand arrow to access hidden settings.

Setting Description Operational Limits
Status Enables or disables data acquisition on the channel. -
Volts/div The vertical scale of the display.
spd-note-note
Note  

The Oscilloscope uses hysteresis to reduce false triggering due to noise or jitter in the signal. The hysteresis is 25% of Volts/div. By increasing Volts/div, you increase the value of hysteresis, which in turn stabilizes the signal in the display window. However, when hysteresis is too high, the Oscilloscope may never be triggered. Adjust Volts/div until you get a stable signal on the display.

Shrink Contracts the trace by increasing Volts/div.
Expand Expands the trace by decreasing Volts/div.
Vertical position Vertical positioning of the waveform on the graph. Use Vertical position or Vertical offset to move the waveform up and down the graph. The Oscilloscope does not apply Vertical position to the input signal. Range: -100 V to 100 V
Probe attenuation Amount of attenuation provided by the probe connected to the channel. Select 1X if the probe does not attenuate the input signal. Select 10X if the probe attenuates the input signal by a factor of ten. Probe attenuation must match the setting of the probe connected to the channel. -
Coupling Specifies whether to remove the DC component from the signal. Select DC if you want to measure the entire signal. Select AC if you want to remove the DC component from the signal. -
Vertical offset Voltage on which the vertical range is centered. You can use Vertical position or Vertical offset to move the waveform up and down the graph. The Oscilloscope applies Vertical offset to the input signal. Range: -25 V to 25 V when Probe attenuation is 1x and -250 V to 250 V when Probe attenuation is 10x
Vertical range Indicates the current input range. You can change Vertical range by adjusting Vertical offset.

Caution  

Protect yourself with safety equipment when measuring high voltages. You must use a 10x probe to protect the hardware.
