Pico Automotive launches eight-channel oscilloscope

New diagnostic oscilloscope aimed at "expert" user while four-channel scope remains best option for general use

Pico's tests give detailed instructions on how to perform each one.

Pico Automotive has announced the launch of its first eight-channel automotive oscilloscope.

A Pico Automotive spokesperson said: “The PicoScope 4823 oscilloscope is ideal for those involved in advanced diagnostics, training or vehicle design.

“The eight channels allow multiple sensors, actuators and CAN/CAN FD signals to be monitored at the same time at up to 80MS/s.”

The latest PicoScope is ready-configured for automotive probes and includes more than 150 guided tests, plus access to thousands of comparisons in the Pico waveform library, which now supports eight channels.

The oscilloscope inputs have common grounds protected by self-resetting fuses, offering less input protection than the floating input design of the two and four channel PicoScopes, but by sharing grounds it makes connecting up its eight channels quicker.

Other specifications are what you would expect from a deep-memory PicoScope, with 12-bit resolution, 20 MHz bandwidth, a 256 MS buffer memory, and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface.

The spokesperson added: “The PicoScope 4823 is an oscilloscope for the expert user with complex problems to diagnose, while the 4425 remains the scope of choice for general workshop use.”

Pico Automotive says its PicoScope is used and trusted by more authorised and independent repairers than any other measurement system because it gives them the capability, confidence and support to quickly find and prove the fix for most vehicle faults.
