Diagnostic Tools

New PicoScope 4425A for active diagnostics

Our exciting new PicoBNC+® probe connectivity, unique to PicoScope 4225A and 4425A oscilloscopes, provides you with:

  • Channel status lights to show you which probes and channels to connect and their status when you load a data file or guided test
  • Smart probe interfacing so that all your probe configuration takes place in the software - no more incorrect probe switch positions!
  • Powered probes that are always on and ready to go - no more flat batteries, current clamp zeroing, or auto-off!
  • Future-proofing of your diagnostic capabilities as we develop new probe technologies.
  • Full backwards-compatibility with BNC for all your existing PicoScope or third-party probes

scan tool or oscilloscope

Why do you need a PicoScope?

Could you use a scan tool instead of a labscope? No, you need both.

A scan tool only points you in the right direction, perhaps indicating a misfire on a specific cylinder, but rarely does it pinpoint a fault. For example, is the misfire caused by an ignition, injector, or a compression-related issue?

Reliance on a scan tool alone can lead you to "parts darts" where you might find yourself replacing more and more parts until the fault goes away.

Instead, a PicoScope helps you:

  • Eliminate guesswork and test individual components before replacing them.
  • Find troublesome intermittent faults.
  • Investigate vehicle problems when there are no, multiple, or misleading fault codes.
  • Diagnose charging and starting faults.
  • Trace problems with actuators that are not monitored by the ECU, such as motors and injectors.
  • Identify mechanical problems such as compression and slipped / incorrectly fitted timing belts.
  • Prove the source of an NVH problem
  • Report your objective findings back to your managers and customers

As a technician, a PicoScope brings you faster, more efficient diagnostics and a clear understanding of the vehicle’s workings.

As workshop owner, a PicoScope gives you a "fix it right" culture, with fewer parts changed on guesswork, and increased customer satisfaction, repeat business and profits.

Practice makes perfect. Improve your skills easily.
