Dedicated front-panel controls provide easy access to important settings, and large menus with clearly labeled on-screen information allow users to quickly find data of interest. The scope includes a courseware system that integrates lab exercises with step-by-step instructions for student use. Additionally, the color display’s graticule has 10 vertical divisions and 15 horizontal divisions to allow more signals to be viewed per screen. Features such as autoset, cursors, and automated measurements can be disabled if desired.
