 It is possible to proportionally change the attenuated signal to reflect the actual signal voltage by clicking on the gear box associated with the oscilloscope channel measuring the attenuated signal and changing the "​Attenuation"​ dropdown box to match the attenuation level. This helps reveal some information about a large signal that is outside the recommended voltage range for an oscilloscope. It is possible to proportionally change the attenuated signal to reflect the actual signal voltage by clicking on the gear box associated with the oscilloscope channel measuring the attenuated signal and changing the "​Attenuation"​ dropdown box to match the attenuation level.

 The BNC adapter also supports a AC coupled setting to create a high pass filter and remove any DC offset from the sinusoidal signal. ​ The BNC adapter also supports a AC coupled setting to create a high pass filter and remove any DC offset from the sinusoidal signal. ​
