Showcase selection of practical laboratory & workshop oscilloscopes.

This is to show the huge selection of working oscilloscopes that we maintain in stock. Please don't try to order this as a complete item as oscilloscopes tend to be priced individually dependent on sophistication, visual appeal etc. You will need to specify which of the group you require. You should find that most oscilloscopes are listed separately on our database with better individual photos. Note that although each screen may be showing different wobbling waveforms, what actually appears on the screen is entirely dependent on what external signal source is connected to the socket(s) on the front panel.

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.
