OD1402 - Lesson 1/Learning Event 1
o Whenever the operation permits, keep one hand in your pocket,
or away from the equipment. This will reduce the chance of current
flowing through your body.
This subcourse has provided you with the basic information
necessary for the operation of the AN/USM 281C oscilloscope. These
same guidelines can be used to operate almost any oscilloscope,
with only minor changes to the procedures.
We have discussed the controls on the oscilloscope and their
various functions. We have also learned how to properly preset
these controls prior to turning on the scope. You have learned how
to turn on and adjust the scope for either single trace or dual
trace operation. You should be familiar with the formulas for
voltage amplitude measurements and frequency.
You should now be ready to take the practice exercise on the next
page. If you have problems with any of the answers, review the
text and repeat the exercise.
