Note:
1. Signals that have a DC component or offset can cause incorrect FFT waveform
component magnitude values. To minimize the DC component, choose AC Coupling
on the source signal.
2. To reduce random noise and aliases components in repetitive or single-shot events,
set the oscilloscope acquisition mode to average.
3. To display FFT waveforms with a large dynamic range, use the “dBVrms” scale. The
“dBVrms” scale displays component magnitudes using a log scale.
FFT Window
The scope meter provides four FFT windows. Each window is a trade-off between
frequency resolution and amplitude accuracy. It depends on the desired

Set Trigger System
The trigger determines when the scope meter starts to acquire data and display a
waveform. When a trigger is set up properly, it can convert unstable displays or blank
screens into meaningful waveforms.
When the scope meter starts to acquire a waveform, it collects enough data so that it can
draw the waveform to the left of the trigger point. The scope meter continues to acquire
data while waiting for the trigger condition to occur. After it detects a trigger, the scope
meter continues to acquire enough data so that it can draw the waveform to the right of
the trigger point.

Trigger Modes
The scope meter provides four trigger modes: Edge, Pulse , Alternative and Video.
Edge: An edge trigger occurs when the trigger input passes through a specified
voltage level in the specified slope direction.
Pulse: Use this trigger type to catch pulses with certain pulse width.
Alternative: Trigger on non-synchronized signals.
Video: Trigger on video-synchronized signals.
Edge Trigger Setting
An edge trigger determines whether the oscilloscope finds the trigger point on the rising
or the falling edge of a signal. Select Edge trigger mode to trigger on rising edge, falling
edge .

Term interpretation
■ Auto:
This sweep mode allows the scope meter to acquire waveforms even when it does
not detect a trigger condition. If no trigger condition occurs while the scope meter is
waiting for a specific period (as determined by the time-base setting), it will force itself
to trigger.
When forcing invalid triggers, the scope meter cannot synchronize the waveform,
and the waveform seems to roll across the display. If valid triggers occur, the display
becomes stable on the screen. Any factor results in the un-stability of waveforms can
be detected by Auto Trigger, such as the output of Power supply.
NOTE: When horizontal control is set more than 50 ms/div, Auto mode allows the
oscilloscope to capture without trigger signal.
■ Normal:
The Normal mode allows the scope meter to acquire a waveform only when it is
triggered. If no trigger occurs, the scope meter keeps waiting, and the previous
waveform, if any, will remain on the display.
■ Single:
In Single mode, after pressing the RUN/STOP key, the scope meter waits for trigger.
While the trigger occurs, the scope meter acquires one waveform then stop.

Example 4: The Pass/Fail Test
The Pass/Fail Test is one of the enhanced special functions of the Scope Meter. By this
function, the Scope Meter could compare the input signal with the established waveform
mask. If the waveform “touches” the mask, a “Fail” signal occurs. Otherwise the test
passes. When needed, a programmable output can be used for external automatic
control applications. The output is built in as a standard feature and is optically isolated.

If the test tool is to be stored for a long time, it is required to charge the lithium battery
before storage.
Charging the scope meter
The lithium battery is possibly not charged when delivery. To make the battery with
enough electric quantity, it must be charged for 4 hours (the test tool must be turned off
during charging). The battery can supply power for 6 hours after being charged completely.
To avoid superheat of battery during charging, the environment temperature is not allowed to exceed the permissible value given in technical specification.
Note:
No hazard will occur even connecting the charger for a long time, e.g. during a whole
weekend. The instrument can automatically switch to slowly charging status.
Replacing the Lithium Battery Unit
It is usually not required to replace the battery unit. But when it is required to replace it,
only qualified personnel can carry out this operation, and only use the same specification
lithium battery.
