Display of traces - Orbit


1. Expand/Compress
Expands or compresses the trace in X and Y direction.

Polar grid

2. Polar grid
Switches on the polar grid in the background of the trace.

Moving width

3. Moving width
The increment, expressed in scale length, by which the measurement curve and thus the scale is pushed further during a moving operation. For example, 10% corresponds to a movement of measurement curves around 1/10th of the X or Y axis.

Fine grid

4. Fine grid
Draws gridlines at all scale lines of the y-axis.


5. Autoscale
Scales the Y axis at each update of the measured value graphic.

Maximize trace

6. Maximize trace
The left button maximizes the curve. The right button maximizes the curve on the same scaling.

Shift trace

7. Shift trace
The control pad shifts the measurement curve in the equivalent direction. By pressing the button in the center the curve is center-aligned horizontally and vertically.
