Probe accessories

Post by TomnJezzer » Sun Oct 25, 2009 5:09 pm

I am a complete novice and have just unpacked my new 3224 scope and probes. Amongst the probe accessories are a couple of yellow plastic shrouds and two small yellow plastic half tube sections, rather like a 10mm length of drinking straw has been cut along its axis! Could anyone tell me what they are for?
Many thanks,

The yellow plastic shrouds go onto the probe tips and act as insulators. These insulators allow more precise placement on small pins where unintentional pin contact may occur.

The two small half tube sections slip around the test leads. These serve as quick channel identifiers (for example the lead with the clips on is channel A and without is channel B).

If you have any other questions including how to use the scope feel free to ask us.
