In addition to our 2-pin automotive breakout lead, we now have a new range of 6-way automotive breakout leads. These allow you to connect your PicoScope Automotive Oscilloscope to various components in the engine bay without having to strip or pierce any insulation, and with no risk of damage to connectors. Each lead has six blades wired to six blade sockets, allowing you to insert it between a plug and socket pair, and a further six 'banana' (4 mm) sockets that connect to the TA000 test leads included in all our Automotive Diagnostic Kits.
The leads are available with three different blade sizes to fit different sensors and actuators. With all three leads you can test a huge range of automotive components, including:
This month’s new automotive reference waveform is from an accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor. You can view this waveform, along with dozens of others, on our website and even download it free of charge for use with your PicoScope Automotive software. If you have the latest version of the software (upgrades are free), you can read more detail about all these waveforms by looking under the Automotive menu.
When you are working with low input voltages, you may find that your converter has a small offset on its ADC input. PicoScope has an Offset Null function that can remove this offset, if you use the following procedure.
