Learning objectives

  • State what values are represented on the x and y axes of the display
  • Name the general components of an oscilloscope needed to display a waveform
  • Recall the differences between analog and digital oscilloscopes
  • Identify waveform types and examples of equipment that produce those waveforms
  • Describe how to use the basic controls of an oscilloscope
  • Express how to take simple measurements for voltage, period, amplitude, frequency, and phase shift

Course overview

Oscilloscopes create a graphic illustration of an electrical signal. The signal is received from electrical, or physical, energy converted to electrical form. By graphing the signal, information can be removed and analyzed. Oscilloscopes are an excellent tool for manufacturing and repairing electrical equipment.

The Oscilloscopes training course explains how to use an oscilloscope's controls to measure electric signals. It also demonstrates how to measure parameters such as voltage, period, amplitude, frequency, and phase shift. This online training course describes an oscilloscope's components and controls. It also covers wave forms and taking measurements.

The Oscilloscopes course is part of the Test Equipment series.
