This is the "Instrument Sidebar" template.

If you have come here looking to edit the page for a particular instrument, you took a wrong turn – please do not edit this template.
Instead, please go back to the instrument's page and edit that.

This template is for generic instruments. We have specialized templates Template:Oscilloscope Sidebar and Template:Probe Sidebar based on this one for the respective product groups. Where applicable, please use these specialized templates instead.

This template should be invoked in the following format: Example:
{{Instrument Sidebar 
|manufacturer=
|model=
|class=
|series=
|summary=
|image=
|caption=
|introduced=
|discontinued=
|designers=
|manuals=
}}
{{Instrument Sidebar
|manufacturer=Tektronix
|model=XYZ
|class=Oscilloscope
|summary=700 MHZ Oscilloscope
|image=Picture of XYZ scope.jpg
|caption=Description of the above picture
|series=96000-series scopes
|introduced=1996
|discontinued=(?)
|designers=John Doe;Alice Bob
|manuals=
* [[070-1234-56.pdf|Tektronix XYZ Operator Manual]] (PDF)
}}

manufacturer= should be a page name, designers= a semicolon-delimited list of page names. For class= please align with existing values in the Products table where applicable.

This template adds [[Category:Introduced in (year)]] to the article. If the introduction or discontinuation year is unknown, please use (?) in its place, e.g. introduced=(?).

This template adds rows to the table "Products", which is declared by the template Product. View table.
