CATHODE RAY OSCILLOSCOPE

These are familiar piece of measuring equipment, as no Tv programme with a science content is complete without the display of instantaneous voltage values on an oscilloscope. It is an indispensable instrument in any laboratory where voltage form a simple basic instrument to the sophisticated/complex programmable instrument with digital readout, are written on the oscilloscope, only the principles and main features of these instruments are introduced here.

  1. Cathode Ray Tube[CRT]: It displays the quantity being measured.
  2. Vertical Amplifier: It amplifies the signal waveform to be viewed.
  3. Horizontal Amplifier: It is fed with a saw tooth voltage which is then applied to the x-plates.
  4. Sweep Generators: This produces saw tooth voltage waveform used for horizontal deflection of the electron beam.
  5. Trigger Circuit: This produces trigger pulses to start horizontal sweep.
  6. High and low power supply.
