Lab section: ______

Part 1: Pre-lab (this part must be done prior to the lab session)

Table 1 Power supply parameters

Number of channels / Output voltages, V / Max output currents for each channel, A / Constant voltage load regulation (IL=2.15A),
% and mV / CH3 min and max output voltages, V / Accuracy of display V (out ON), % / Operating temperature range, oC

Table 2: DMM parameters

• Can this equipment measure frequency?
• How do we factor in the effect of temperature on the measurements accuracy?

Table 3: Function generator parameters

• Can you generate Sin(x)/x waveform using this function generator?

Table 4 Oscilloscope parameters

Figure 5: DMM measurement Figure 6Oscilloscope measurement

Explain:

-Why there is a difference between DMM and oscilloscope connections.

-How you are going to measure the VR2 using the oscilloscope.

Table 5: Basic oscilloscope settings

Parameters of signal
Dial value / 1Hz, 3V amplitude / 10Hz, 0.5V amplitude / 1kHz, 5V amplitude; 1V positive offset
Calc.value / “Autoset” / Calc.value / “Autoset” / Calc.value / “Autoset”
“Horizontal Scale”
“Vertical Scale”

The steps I need to take to set the oscilloscope to measure:

-Peak-to-peak voltage on Channel 1

-RMS voltage on Channel 2

-Mean of the signal on Channel 1(Coupling must be set to DC)

-Frequency of the signal on Channel 1

Why arethe directly measured values of current different from the indirect ones?

Why is R1’s power rating different from R2’s?
