How do I use the DLM2000 Enhanced Parameter Measurement and Calculation Feature?

The DLM2000 Series Oscilloscope is capable of performing enhanced parameter measurements and calculations. This feature allows you to perform automated measurements of waveform parameters of two different areas. It will also allow you to perform automated calculations using the measured waveform parameters such as RMS, max, min, frequency, rise, fall, etc. To configure the DLM2000 for enhanced measurements and calculations, follow the procedures listed below:

  1. Press the Measure » Enhanced soft button
  2. Press the Item Setup (Area2) soft button
  3. Use the Jog Shuttle and SET knob to set the source waveform and measurement items
  4. Press ESC to return to Enhanced Setup menu
  5. Press the Time Range soft button and select the display window Main, Zoom1, or Zoom2
  6. Press ESC to return to Enhanced Setup menu
  7. Use the Jog Shuttle and SET knob to set the Time Range
  8. Press the Calc Setup soft button to modify and select the expression to use

Please see the attached PowerPoint file for more examples of enhanced calculation expressions. 


  • Make sure you are running Firmware version 1.81 or later. 
  • You cannot use the enhanced parameter measurement feature when the statistical processing mode is set to Cycle

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes

A mixed signal oscilloscope is an instrument enabling the simultaneous, time correlated observations and analysis of analog with digital (logic) signals, to establish causal relationships between the various areas of a device's electronics. They are purpose-built tools for troubleshooting electrical anomalies, measuring parametric values, and monitoring cause and effect relationships between signals.


Oscilloscopes are a common type of test instrument used to capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time.
