What is a Locating Sleeve on an Oscilloscope
I just got an oscilloscope and the manual mentioned “Locating Sleeve: Using locating sleeve could ensure the stability and reliability of the tip exposed to the test point.” Say what?
Here is what a locating sleeve is for. If you need to carefully touch just one point on a PCB, you can take off the tip of your probe off, that is the tip with the spring loaded hook, and then attach the locating sleeve. Now it will be easier to touch just what you are intending to.
I just bought a Hantek portable scope and that was the mystifying instruction with the probe. I am mystified no more?
Glad it was a help!
Same thing here :-) also just bought a Hantek and there was that probe thingy. Solved now. Thank you for sharing!
