Learning Event 2:
BASIC OSCILLOSCOPE BY THE USE OF SCREEN GRIDS
SIMPLIFIED OPERATING PROCEDURES
The following methods are provided to aid in quickly setting the
oscilloscope controls to present a display. Before attempting
these procedures, the operator should become thoroughly familiar
with the functions of all controls, indicators, and connectors, as

Step 1. Preset all the controls as described in Learning Event 1,
pages 13 and 14.
Step 2. Pull the POWER switch knob out to apply power and allow
Step 3. Turn the INTENSITY knob clockwise until a display is

Step 4. Press and hold the BEAM FINDER switch.
Step 5. Set the VOLTS/DIV switch on the lefthand vertical
