(a square wave used to adjust compensated passive probes), the trigger out
signal, or a demo signal.
10 MHz In, 10 MHz Out
The 10 MHz In BNC connector is used to synchronize the oscilloscope's horizontal
timebase system to a reference clock that you provide. The clock that you provide
must meet the following specifications:
•
Amplitude: 800 mV peak to 1.26 V peak
•
Frequency: 10 MHz ±5 ppm high-quality sine wave or square wave
To use an external reference clock, connect the external clock to the 10 MHz In
BNC connector; then, in the Infiniium oscilloscope application's Horizontal dialog
box (Setup > Horizontal...), enable the External 10 MHz Reference Clock.
You can use the 10 MHz Out BNC connector to send the oscilloscope’s 10 MHz
reference clock output signal to another instrument’s reference clock input.

Front Panel Controls (Keys and Knobs) Overview
The Infiniium S-Series oscilloscope front panel gives you direct access to the
functions needed to perform the most common measurements, using a traditional
oscilloscope interface. Knobs and keys let you directly set vertical and horizontal
parameters. The front panel also has a set of LED indicators; by using these and
the display, you see the oscilloscope’s configuration at a glance.
The oscilloscope uses color consistently throughout the front panel and user
interface. For example, the color of the knob for channel 1 is the same color as the
waveform for channel 1. All the configuration items and values related to channel
1 are displayed in the same color.

Using the Oscilloscope
User Interface Overview
With the user interface for the Infiniium oscilloscope, you can access all the
configuration and measurement features of the oscilloscope through an
easy-to-use system of windows, menus, toolbars, dialog boxes, icons, wizards,
and buttons.
The user interface is arranged so the most common functions affecting the
waveform display are located around the edge of the waveform display area.
Context-sensitive menus are available when you right-click something in the
waveform display area, such as the grid, a signal, a bookmark, or a measurement.
You can mouse over or touch other areas, such as the drag & drop measurements
area and horizontal and acquisition control regions, to find more information about
those areas or to enter data.
The following figures call out the areas and controls of the user interface.

Avoid Overdriving Vertical Input Amplifiers
When zooming on a waveform with the oscilloscope running, be careful to keep the signal
within the screen vertically to avoid overdriving the vertical input amplifiers. Overdriving
causes waveform distortion and erroneous measurement results.
Ground reference indicators appear for each displayed channel, waveform
memory, or math function. The symbol represents the ground reference point for

Using the Oscilloscope
Making a measurement on a waveform
Click and drag a measurement icon to the waveform event you want to measure,
or click a measurement icon and specify which source you want to measure in the
dialog box that appears.
For measurements on waveform features, such as those that involve waveform
edges, if you click the measurement icon and specify a source, the measurement
defaults to using the feature closest to the horizontal reference point. When you
make the measurement using drag-and-drop, the measurement uses the
waveform feature closest to the point where you drop the icon.
The most commonly used measurements are available in the drag and drop area.
Others are available from the Add Measurement dialog box.
When you drag and drop a measurement icon on a waveform, the icon outline
changes color to match the color of each waveform it touches so you can easily
see which waveform will be measured.
For edge-sensitive measurements, when you drop the measurement icon on a
waveform, a circled number appears in the waveform marker color. This number
shows exactly where the measurement is being made. It is displayed next to the
measurement readout in the Results area.
This feature helps you distinguish measurement results from each other when you
make multiple measurements on the same waveform, but at different waveform
features.

•
To turn off the quick measurement display, press and release the [Mul ti Purpose]
key until the measurements are turned off.
See the Infiniium oscilloscope application’s online help for information on how to
configure the quick measurement capability.
Using markers
Markers make it easier to make precise measurements because the marker
measurement readouts show exact voltage and time positions for the markers. The
measurements are based on actual waveform data from the acquisition system,
not on approximations based on the display position, so you can be sure the values
are highly accurate.
Using the marker and measurement controls, you control two sets of markers
within the oscilloscope grid.
Both time and voltage differences between the markers are updated continuously
on the screen. By default, the markers track the source waveform. Voltage
measurements from the markers are the value of the waveform at the time set with
the marker arrow keys.
•
To select the type of marker mode you want to use, press the [Markers] key.
•
To turn on Marker 1 (X1), push the Position knob. Turn the knob to move the
marker. Push the knob again to select Marker 1 (Y1).
Marker 1 (X1 and Y1) has a solid line pattern on the waveform display. It is
associated with the first available source on the display.
•

About Repetitive Strain Injury 54
Mice and Other Input Devices 55
To optimize your comfort and productivity, it is important that you set up your
work area correctly and use your Infiniium oscilloscope properly. With that in mind,
we have developed some setup and use recommendations for you to follow based
on established ergonomic principles.
Improper and prolonged use of keyboards and input devices are among those
tasks that have been associated with repetitive strain injury (RSI) to soft tissues in
the hands and arms. If you experience discomfort or pain while using the
oscilloscope, discontinue use immediately and consult your physician as soon as
possible. For more information on RSI, read the “About Repetitive Strain Injury”
section, next.
Please study the recommendations offered here in this chapter. Included are
references to relevant parts of international standards, regulations, and guidelines,
such as ISO 9241 and the European Community Display Screen Equipment
directive. You may also consult your employer’s human resources department or
other relevant departments for guidance specific to your company.

Working in Comfort
About Repetitive Strain Injury
Because your comfort and safety are our primary concern, we strongly recommend
that you use the Infiniium oscilloscope in accordance with established ergonomic
principles and recommendations. Scientific literature suggests that there may be a
relationship between injury to soft tissues—especially in the hands and arms—and
prolonged improper use of keyboards or other equipment requiring repeated
motions of the hands and forearms. This literature also suggests that many other
risk factors may increase the chance of such injury, commonly called Repetitive
Strain Injury.
What is RSI?
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI—also known as cumulative trauma disorder or
repetitive motion injury) is a type of injury where soft tissues in the body, such as
muscles, nerves, or tendons, become irritated or inflamed. RSI has been a reported
problem for those who perform repetitive tasks such as assembly line work,
meatpacking, sewing, playing musical instruments, and computer work. RSI also
has been observed in those who frequently engage in activities such as carpentry,
knitting, housework, gardening, tennis, windsurfing, and lifting children.
What causes RSI?
The specific causes of RSI have not been established. Nevertheless, the incidence
of RSI has been associated with a variety of risk factors, including:
•
Too many uninterrupted repetitions of an activity or motion
•
Performing an activity in an awkward or unnatural posture
•
Maintaining static posture for prolonged periods
•
Failing to take frequent short breaks
•
Other environmental and psychosocial factors
In addition, there have been reports associating the occurrence of RSI with the use
of keyboards, mice, and other input devices. Also, certain medical conditions, such
as rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, and diabetes, may predispose some people to this
type of injury.
What if I experience discomfort?
If you are experiencing any discomfort, seek professional medical advice
immediately. Typically, the earlier a problem is diagnosed and treated, the easier it
is to resolve.

Mice and Other Input Devices
Various aspects of using mice and other input devices may increase your risk of
discomfort or injury. Observing the following recommendations may reduce that
risk.
•
Try to keep your hand, wrist, and forearm in a neutral position while using your
mouse or other input device.
•
If you use your thumb to rotate the ball on a trackball or spaceball, keep it in a
relaxed, natural shape, and maintain a neutral posture in your hand, wrist, and
forearm.
•
Hold the mouse gently by draping your fingers over it. Keep your hand relaxed
and fingers loose. Do not grip the mouse tightly.
•
It takes very little pressure or force from your fingers to activate the buttons or
scroll wheel on your mouse, scrolling mouse, trackball, or other input device.
Using too much force can place unnecessary stress on the tendons and
muscles in your hands, wrists, and forearms.
•
If you are using a scrolling mouse, be sure to keep your fingers and hand in a
relaxed, neutral position when activating the scroll wheel. Also, this type of
mouse features software that can minimize the number of mouse movements or
button clicks.
•
When using a mouse, trackball, or other input device, position it as close to the
keyboard as possible, and keep it at the same level so you do not have to
stretch while using it.
•
Be sure to keep your mouse and trackball clean. Regular removal of
accumulated dust and dirt helps ensure proper tracking and reduces
unnecessary hand and wrist motions.
