    Hello,

    At the bottom of the screen on my FLUKE PM3082 scope a have :
    Ch1 1.00 V= MTB 10us ch1f .

    Does the 1.00 V= means that every square along grid Y axis corresponds
    to 1 V?

    Thanks.

    Yes. But if you use a common 10:1 probe, and the scope doesn't know
    it, that will become 10 volts/cm.

    yes how ever, I don't think that scope has a 10:1 selection for the
    input if you're using a 10:1 mode probe.. in this case, each grid
    block vertically would mean 10 times actual reading in voltage..
    i could be wrong about the scope sensing the 10:1 probe being how ever.

    Some TI scopes I've used did that, but they had special connectors.

    Every other scope I've used apparently assumes that the operator knows
    what he/she is doing.

    Cheers!
