What is a scope

What is a scope?

  • Essential tool for automotive diagnostic and fault finding.

  • Ideal for viewing and testing most automotive sensors and circuits.

  • Captures and stores signals from sensors, components and actuators.

  • Displays and expands spikes and complex signals.


What can it do

Ignition (Primary & Secondary)

Injectors & fuel pumps

Starter & charging currents

ABS sensors. Crank & cam sensors

Relative compression tests

Glow plugs/timer relays

Lambda, airflow, knock & MAP sensors

What can it do?

The kit can be used to measure and test virtually all electrical and electronic components:


Why use a scope

Why use a scope?

  • 2 main diagnostic techniques - ECU Fault codes and scopes. Both have advantages, but used together are very powerful. Scopes enable the actual signals to be viewed

  • Scopes speed up diagnostics, especially where there’s no fault code, or it is wrong or misleading. A real Time-Saver !

  • A scope can confirm fault code diagnosis, before expensive parts are swapped out. They may just need cleaning!

  • Reduced Manufacturer Warranty Costs - due to elimination of unnecessary replacement of non-faulty parts. Connections and wiring faults can easily be pin pointed

  • Easy saving of data for analysis, and comparison with stored benchmark traces. Waveforms can be transmitted easily by email, for remote diagnosis.


Adc 212 3

ADC-212/3

  • Dual channel + trigger

  • Vertical resolution of 4000 ‘dots’

  • 12 bit resolution

  • 32k sample memory

  • 3MS/s sampling rate

  • +/-1% accuracy

  • +/-10mV to +/-20V inputs in 11 ranges

  • 1.5MHz analogue bandwidth

The Pico ADC-212/3 PC oscilloscope/meter is our recommended product for automotive diagnostic and fault finding.


How do i use it

How do I use it?

In the PicoScope software, the Automotive menu contains a list of the different sensors and circuits that can be tested with the Diagnostic kit. When the subject of interest has been selected, the software will automatically do a number of things:

  • Load a reference waveform into PicoScope

  • Load a web page. This shows how to connect the scope, gives advice on what the waveform should look like and gives general technical information

  • Load the required settings, removing the need to spend time on setting up the PicoScope
