Oscilloscopes

How can I get PicoScope 6 to display 0 to +5 volts instead of -5 to +5 volts?


Click on the small coloured button at the bottom of the voltage scale for the channel you want to change and, unless you have changed the scaling, this button will contain the text "x1.0".

In the control box that opens, click on the up-arrow next to the Scale control to change the scale from 1.00 to 2.00, and then, the signal trace will double in vertical size.

Next, click on the down-arrow next to the Offset control to change the offset from 0.00% to -25.00%. This will move the signal trace down the screen until 0 volts is at the bottom of the view and +5 volts is at the top.
