Using an Oscilloscope to diagnose ?
« on: June 27, 2019, 10:48:24 PM »
Hi All,

I recently acquired a Tektronix 222 Oscilloscope and I would like to know how to test the output of the handhelds, I still have no real way of testing these.. or do I now with this Scope ??

I own and Run a General Repair Shop in Norwich. In the Summer Months I repair Garden Equipment & Winter Time is Vacuum Cleaners.

Better off with a multimeter Nik.
The scope is overkill and only usefull for seeing ripple or digital pulses.

It can measure voltage but much easier with a meter
The only way to fail is not to try.
