An electronic Prop House

Practical HP 1715A laboratory oscilloscope with blue screen, coloured buttons

You can't normally just look at a malfuntioning piece of electronics & tell what is wrong with it. Oscilloscopes are widely used in electronics laboratories, repair workshops & factories to display on their screen rapidly varying waveforms of voltages & signals (oscillations) that are changing too fast inside a circuit for an ordinary multimeter to measure. Typically a technician will progress through a circuit connecting the 'scope onto different components along the way until the signal disappears or just looks wrong & the fault will likely be just before that point. This makes oscilloscopes almost indispensible for designing & fault finding complex electronic equipment - well worth remembering when you're dressing such a scene. It's very similar to doctors using X-ray machines or patient monitors to diagnose what's actually wrong inside their patients when there's nothing visible from the outside. They're also very visual props, adding interest to any set as the wobbling waveform displayed can be continuously varying. When hiring oscilloscopes please bear in mind that unless you connect a separate signal generator (wobble box) the screen will only show a dull flat line. We have many signal generators capable of different animated or static patterns, geometric or randomly spiky etc. Please specify what you require when enquiring.

This scope has a pleasing blue screen, columns of coloured buttons & a red LED numeric display above the screen.
