You will require a PicoScope to perform this test. A list of suitable accessories can be found at the bottom of this page.
Note: This helpfile refers to a 10:1 attenuator. If you are using a 20:1 attenuator please adjust the Probe settings for the relevant channel. These settings can be found under the Channel Options button, then: Probe > 20:1 Attenuator.
If the live waveform is not shown or is upside-down, a positively-fired plug has been selected by mistake. Either choose a different plug lead to test or load the example secondary positive waveform from the drop-down menu.
