Why Is Picoscope Automotive Needed?

by Robert Keith AUTOMOTIVE DIAGNOSTIC & TRAINING SERVICE

A PicoScope Automotive is the ideal PC Oscilloscope to virtually measure and test all the electronic components and circuits in modern vehicles.

Your PC is transformed into a potent diagnostic tool by a PicoScope, allowing you to view the changing signals inside cables on the screen.

The NEW PicoScope 4425A scopes come with a variety of upgraded features, such as push-fit probes that are already set up and ready to use with PicoBNC+ Probe Recognition and PicoBNC+ probes that are powered by the scope.

The pre-sets will be configured for you so that the probe is ready to use by the new push-fit probes and PicoBNC+ probe identification capability. Even more, the PicoBNC+ line of current clamps is powered by the scope. This eliminates the need for batteries and the irksome disruptions caused by battery drain testing.

Active diagnostics have been added using the PicoBNC+ connections. This a development that solidifies the Picoscope's position as the most user-friendly, capable, and long-lasting automotive oscilloscope on the market by paving the way for an entirely new line of intelligent probes. It has never been quicker, simpler, or more dependable to use a PicoScope Automotive.

Reasons to Use a PicoScope Automotive

  • To avoid "parts darts," where more and more parts are replaced until the fault is resolved, evaluate individual components before they are replaced.
  • To identify the connection and intermittent wiring issues.
  • When a car has a fault but no codes have been assigned, or when there are several misleading codes.
  • It's the most effective technique to identify charging and starting issues.
  • To identify issues with actuators that the ECU does not monitor, such as motors and injectors.
  • To spot mechanical issues including slipping or improperly fitted timing belts and compression.

Useful With Any Contemporary Vehicle

Almost all of the electrical and electronic parts and circuits in a modern car may be measured and tested with the PicoScope Automotive Diagnostics Kits, such as:

  • Ignition (primary and secondary)
  • Glow plugs/timer relays
  • Lambda, Airflow, knock, and MAP sensors
  • Glow plugs/timer relays
  • Lambda, Airflow, knock, and MAP sensors
  • Starter and charging circuits 
  • Batteries, alternators, and starting motors
  • CAN bus, LIN bus, and FlexRay

Then and Now

A PicoScope may function on any make or model, whether it is a petrol, diesel, electric, or hybrid vehicle, in contrast to a serial diagnostic instrument. It works well with both passenger and commercial cars.

With more than 20 years of expertise designing PC-based oscilloscopes, Pico Technology is the market leader. The PicoScope automotive oscilloscopes were created from the ground up with an automotive application in mind, in contrast to many competing models. They provide an unmatched fusion of software features, resolution, memory depth, sampling rate, and bandwidth. Your PicoScope will work flawlessly for many years to come by handling fast and sophisticated signals like CAN bus and FlexRay.

Simple To Use, Preferred By Experts

This versatile and powerful vehicle diagnostic equipment was made to be simple to use, making it appropriate for both novice and seasoned oscilloscope users.

The package is perfect for a variety of users, including franchised and non-franchised mechanics, organisations that handle breakdowns and roadside repairs, mobile tuning and repair services, motorsport, and R&D for automobiles.

Because the PicoScope is powered by the USB connection of the PC and doesn't require batteries or power cables, it may be used for both stationary and mobile car diagnostics.

More significant automobile manufacturers already employ Pico Automotive Diagnostics Kits at the dealer level than any other oscilloscope. Get in touch with us if you represent a car maker that does not yet provide one of our PicoScope Automotive Kits to its dealers - see kits for car makers and OEMs.

A PC-based automotive oscilloscope is called a PicoScope (sometimes known as a labscope). It transforms your laptop or desktop into a potent diagnostic tool that reveals the true state of a car's electronic circuits. Consider a PicoScope as the "X-ray machine of diagnostics," enabling you to view the interior wiring of your car. Although a PicoScope automotive oscilloscope is available for individual purchase, the majority of customers opt to buy one of our acclaimed Automotive Diagnostics Kits. Just add a Computer to these cost-saving packages, which already include everything you need.
