Push the horizontal position knob to set the trigger offset (or zoomed time base offset) to the horizontal zero point.

This menu lets you turn the zoomed time base on or off, select the Y-T, X-Y, or Roll time base.

Turn this knob to select the horizontal time/div (scale factor) for the main or the zoomed time base.

zoom de la escala horizontal

Creo que a la altura de este partido, el anglicismo Zoom ya está firmemente incorporado en el léxico técnico. Todo el mundo sabe su significado sin ambiguedades. Ciertamente no es castizo pero está en boca de todos.
La escala horizontal es la escala del tiempo y es la que se puede acortar o alargar. Para altas frecuencias es necesario acortar el tiempo para poder ver la onda. Para bajas frecuencias es necesario alargar el tiempo.
