On a terminal screen with alphanumeric character representation, analog pulses are represented by horizontal and vertical bars. For this purpose, the analog pulses are sensed at the clock of strobe pulses, and the respective value is stored in a storage position. The number of character positions on the screen is limited, so that at certain resolutions, some analog pulses are not fully represented in one screen line. By increasing the spacing of the strobe pulses, i.e., by performing sense operations less frequently, it is possible to represent an analog pulse in its full length, if required, but short drops occurring between two strobe pulses can no longer be sensed and represented.
