Power up the "TIMS" unit by using the switch at the back.
Connect the Pico Virtual Instrument (PicoScope) to the PC as per Appendix 1
On the "TIMS" unit, connect the 2 kHz (sin wt) message found on the "Master Signals" module, to input A-CH1 of the "Scope Selector" module. Making sure the toggle switch is set to A, connect CH1 of the scope selector to CHA of the PicoScope Virtual Instrument via the coaxial cable provided (See Figure 1.1). Observe and record the time domain signal, noting characteristics such as frequency and amplitude. (Note: make sure that the probe setting on the CRO is 1X). If you use the PicoScope set the trigger to Auto or Ch A.
The Frequency domain information can be obtained by using the Pico Virtual Instrument, as per section 1.4.1.
Launch PicoScope on the PC (double click the icon). Connect the BNC CH1 output of the "Scope Selector" module to the A input of the PicoScope. To display the spectrum click on the spectrum analyser icon in the PicoScope menu bar. Set the Max Frequency (menu bar) to12.21kHz. To set the Y scale to volts, choose Settings Spectrum options icon, spectrum window will open, change the Y scale to volts.
