EVERETT, Wash. - Fluke Corporation, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, has posted a series of three free online webinars to introduce electrical professionals to the theory and use of digital storage oscilloscopes.

This complimentary webinar series, ABC’s of Portable Oscilloscopes, is designed to make it easy to understand how to capture and analyze waveforms using a portable storage oscilloscope, such as the Fluke ScopeMeter.

The programs are tailored for professionals who troubleshoot electronic, electro-mechanical and electrical systems and want to expand their skill set beyond static snapshots of volts, ohms and amps and learn more about complex waveforms and event timing. The “how-to” knowledge provided in this webinar series can be useful in diagnosing electrical problems that are occurring more frequently as electronics are embedded in commercial and industrial equipment.

Measuring these control signals requires a digital storage oscilloscope, a high-bandwidth tool capable of capturing very small, rapid events. By gaining an understanding of waveforms and how to use a portable storage oscilloscope, electrical professionals can increase their value on the job-even boost their job security.

Three segments cover all the basics of using a portable storage oscilloscope:

Part A: Oscilloscope theory of operation
Learn how digital storage oscilloscopes work. Understand key functions like sampling, memory depth, triggering and more.

Part B: Capturing and analyzing unknown waveforms
Learn how to capture and display a stable waveform in a few easy steps. Then use the fundamentals of waveform analysis to recognize if it’s good or bad.

Part C: Techniques for capturing waveform anomalies
What if a disturbance happens randomly? In this final segment, you’ll learn techniques for capturing waveform anomalies, disturbances and random events.

Fluke ScopeMeter Portable Oscilloscopes
Portable oscilloscopes are used in many field troubleshooting applications from electrical and electro-mechanical to electronic and industrial control systems. Fluke ScopeMeter, a combination digital multimeter and oscilloscope, is a rugged, reliable test instrument designed for plant maintenance and field service professionals.
