PicoBNC+ Starter 4000 series 4 channel automotive pc based oscilloscope Starter kit. 

Vehicle electronics continue to get more complex. Does this make it harder for you to find faults?

With a PicoScope it doesn’t have to…

A PicoScope is a PC based automotive oscilloscope (sometimes known as a labscope).  It turns your laptop or desktop into a powerful diagnostic tool, showing you what is really going on with a vehicle’s electronic circuits. Think of a PicoScope as the “X-ray machine of diagnostics”, giving you the ability to see the inner workings of your vehicle’s wiring.

You can purchase a PicoScope automotive oscilloscope on its own, but most people purchase one of our award winning Automotive Diagnostics Kits.  These money saving kits contain everything you need – just add a PC.

This brand new Pico Automotive scope model combines all the strengths of our existing Automotive scope, but adds a smart interface for powered and intelligent accessories. This has been achieved by creating a new interface PicoBNC+™ which combines the standard BNC with a smart digital connection.

PicoScope™ 4425A: Active Diagnostics

The new 4225A and 4425A models have been introduced to make it even easier (and intuitive) for new users to become productive with PicoScope. They also offer significant advantages to technicians of all experience such as probes powered via the scope rather than external batteries, and open the door to a whole new series of intelligent probes and new applications that make PicoScope the most intuitive, capable and future-proofed automotive oscilloscope on the market.


About PicoBNC+

The new PicoBNC+ connection has been developed to bring to the market a unique combination of support for legacy and 3rd party probes with a simple and powerful system to provide new intelligent probes for the future. The new PicoBNC+ connection is a plug-and-play design – push to connect and that’s it! The connectors use colour coding on the plastic shell that can be matched by interactive LED’s on the scope giving both an indication of what is expected and confirming what is connected. Powered probes are automatically recognized in the software and the scope set up accordingly making it even faster for a technician to use the PicoScope 4425A and allows them to concentrate on testing what is in front of them.

The PicoBNC+ interface retains the BNC connection for best high-frequency analog response, but adds digital and power interfaces. The new colour coded plastic shells on the probes give us enough room in the housing for electronics which opens up limitless possibilities for future probes. At the same time, all existing BNC probes can still be used.

A new feature with the PicoBNC+ probes is Probe Mismatch. The new PicoBNC+ probes are recognized in software, which saves this information with a PicoScope data file. When the file is subsequently opened, the software can tell which probes are connected and the user will be prompted if the connected probes are different to the probes saved in the original settings file. (PS7 only).


Keeping all the good stuff

There is no loss of existing features from the existing model PicoScope 4425:

  • ±200 V to ±50 mV input ranges with floating inputs
  • Up to 400 M samples/second (Fast enough for FlexRay, CAN FD etc.)
  • 512MB Deep Memory inside the scope (Capture intermittent faults that other scopes miss)
  • ConnectDetect® for confirmation of good contact
  • USB2 or USB3 connectivity to PC
  • Hardware frequency coupling
  • Hardware & software filters
  • Hardware & software triggers
  • Vehicle health check to build business with PicoDiagnostics
  • NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) diagnostics
  • Maths channels, Masks/Alarms, Serial Decoding, Rotation/Phase markers
