TM 9-254 Section II.  OSCILLOSCOPE CHARACTERISTICS 8-5. Oscilloscope Familiarization. a. General.  The oscilloscope is used to visually display electrical impulses.  Some oscilloscopes are designed specifically  for  displaying  only  one  trace.    These  oscilloscopes  are  classified  as  single  trace  oscilloscopes  and  consist primarily of one vertical amplifier and one horizontal sweep generator connected to the deflection plates of the cathode-ray tube (CRT).  The versatility of an oscilloscope can be increased by providing for more than one vertical amplifier and one horizontal sweep generator.  A dual-trace oscilloscope contains this versatility by incorporating two plug in vertical amplifier units and a dual time base plug-in unit that contains main triggering controls.  These provide dual trace operation for the comparison of two independent electrical impulses at the same  time.    When  the  recurring  rate  of  a  signal  is  so  slow  (a pulse   recurring   once   every   30   seconds)   that   it   becomes   impossible   to   adequately   observe   it   on   a   conventional oscilloscope,  the  storage  oscilloscope  should  be  used.    The  storage  oscilloscope  is  designed  to  store  the  signal  in  its memory and then display the signal on the CRT for viewings or photographing.  In addition, the storage oscilloscope can be operated as a conventional oscilloscope. NOTE For   the   purpose   of   the   discussion   in   this   section,   reference   is   made   to   an   AN/USM   281C oscilloscope. b. Oscilloscope  Controls  (fig.  8-7).    The  controls  for  the  oscilloscope  are  located  in  the  front  and  rear  panels. The most commonly used controls will be discussed in this section.  The more complex controls will not be covered, these controls are for special applications.  Refer to the operators manual of the particular oscilloscope you are using for their uses. NOTE Perform the initial control settings before turning the oscilloscope on for the first time.  Once the oscilloscope  has  been  in  use,  it  should  not  be  necessary  to  repeat  the  initial  control  settings unless the front controls have been completely maladjusted. c. Initial Control Settings (fig. 8-8).  Preposition the oscilloscope controls as follows: (1) Set INTENSITY knob (1) fully counterclockwise. (2) Turn FOCUS knob (2) to midrange. (3) Turn GRAT ILLUM knob (3) to midrange. NOTE Be sure only one VERT MODE switch remains pressed in at a time. 8-11
