New scope released for expert users while four-channel option remains best choice for general workshop use

Video: New eight-channel PicoScope launched for automotive diagnostics
The PicoScope 4823 is Pico Automotive's first eight-channel oscilloscope.

Pico Automotive has announced the launch of its new PicoScope 4823, an eight-channel oscilloscope for the automotive market.

The new PicoScope oscilloscope is ideal for those involved in advanced diagnostics, training or vehicle design.

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

It 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 PicoScope 4823 inputs have common grounds protected by self-resetting fuses; this offers less input protection than the floating input design of the two and four channel 4225/4425 PicoScopes, but by sharing grounds it makes connecting up its 8 channels quicker.

A Pico Automotive spokesperson said: “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.”

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: “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.

“When you buy a PicoScope, you benefit from more than 25 years investment in the world’s best diagnostic oscilloscopes.

“The PicoScope 4823 is simply the best eight-channel diagnostic oscilloscope for vehicle and equipment technicians, offering unrivalled performance for the same amount as equipment that leaves you stuck or frustrated by the limitations.

“The Pico community and resources are there for you every step of the way with a PicoScope diagnostic oscilloscope.”

The PicoScope 4823 is available for £1735 + VAT via Pico Automotive’s distributors and directly from its website – click ‘more details’ below.
