Engineers, scientists, and other technical professionals around the world depend on oscilloscopes as one of the primary voltage measuring instruments. This is an unusual situation because the oscilloscope is not the most accurate voltage measuring instrument usually available in the lab. It is the graphical nature of the oscilloscope that makes it so valued as a measurement instrument—not its measurement accuracy.
