I want to purchase an oscilloscope to measure charging voltage spikes while driving a car. I need to log large quantities of data during this test. I also need to capture these spikes in small time frames (ms). Is this the correct tool for the job? And will it have detailed instructions for installation? Thanks, Larry

Hello Larry

Thank you for your post.

As you are interested in data capture over time, your application calls for a data logger rather than an oscilloscope which is included in the kit you mrntioned.
Please take a look at our data logger range here

Also have a look at the PicoLog software - you can download and use in demo mode to get an idea of the capability on offer.
Regards,
David

Hi Larry,

Let me offer an opposing point of view :roll:

The new capabilities of PicoScope 6 and the 3000 series automotive scopes allow for unprecedented high speed data capture over long periods of time. Here is an example:
