The Coil-On-Plug (COP) ignition probe is the fastest way you can check Coil–On–Plug ignition coils and spark plugs.

  • Find misfires fast
  • Gives scope patterns of the secondary, faster than scoping the primary
  • Works on all labscopes capable of displaying ignition patterns
  • Suitable for use on most COP and conventional ignition systems
  • Long probe (36 cm / 14 inches including handle)
  • No batteries required


Like distributors, spark plug wires are starting to disappear from cars. With the new Coil–On–Plug (COP) ignition systems the ignition coils are connected directly to the spark plugs — eliminating the need for the spark plug wires. With no high–voltage spark wires, and associated wiring looms, COP ignition systems reduce manufacturing and repair costs, and improving ignition performance and reliability.

How does it work?

The Coil–On–Plug probe works with most COP systems; it requires no special adaptors, no foil strips, and no batteries. The Pico COP probe eliminates the need for back–probing: to use the probe simply press the probe against the coil.

COP waveform

Secondary ignition waveform captured using the Coil–On–Plug probe.

A TA033 BNC to BNC cable is the ideal way to connect the COP probe to your automotive oscilloscope. Alternatively, the probe can be connected to your oscilloscope by using two of the TA000 automotive test leads that are supplied in the automotive diagnostics kit: simply connect the 4 mm connectors together and use this connection point as the ground connection to the vehicle.

Along with testing COP systems, the Coil–On–Plug probe can also be used to obtain a secondary ignition waveform on conventional ignition systems.

Designed to save you time, effort and money, the Coil–On–Plug ignition probe is the fastest way to test both conventional Coil–On–Plug secondary ignition systems.
