Frequency Measurement
« on: September 22, 2018, 04:21:55 PM »
I am finding doing frequency measurements with SignalScope to be difficult.  It has to be done visually  and by hand, and there are no physical knobs to tweak the time axis like in a hardware scope.

Ideally the fundamental frequency would be available somewhere.  Am I missing something?

It's true that there are no physical knobs for adjusting the Oscilloscope display.

Perhaps, you have already found that if you look in the Display tab of the drawer on the bottom side of the Oscilloscope window, you'll see the software controls for adjusting the amplitude (Vert) and time (Horz) scale of the scope.

Frequency measurements can be made with the Oscilloscope, using the dual data cursors, but it would be easier to measure frequencies with the FFT Analyzer. However, if you need very fine precision, it may be better to use the Oscilloscope.
