Automotive oscilloscopes

A PicoScope (sometimes known as a labscope) turns your laptop or desktop PC into a powerful diagnostic tool. Think of it as the X-ray machine of diagnostics, letting you see the changing signals inside wires. You can purchase a PicoScope 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.

PicoScope Automotive software

Our software helps you:

  • Set up your scope quickly
  • Capture waveforms you can trust
  • See your waveforms in high definition and with minimal delay
  • Evaluate your waveforms with powerful tools
  • Grow as a diagnostician; save and share your waveforms
  • Maximize your return on investment 

With any automotive PicoScope, you have exclusive access to unique features and a comprehensive set of resources, including our guided tests, the Waveform Library and PicoDiagnostics.

PicoScope Automotive software is free with no subscriptions or in-app purchases.

You can explore the latest version now by downloading and running it with a demo device - you don’t even need a scope!

ConnectDetect®

Available on PicoScope 4x25 and 4x25A Automotive oscilloscopes, the ConnectDetect feature indicates whether you have good connections between your test leads and circuits.

Memory Buffer

Memory buffer

The best way to diagnose an intermittent fault is often to set up the scope to measure from several components and wait for the fault to occur. For an intermittent misfire, you might want to capture several minutes of cam, crank, ignition and injector waveforms. These types of tests require an oscilloscope with a "deep" memory buffer so that you can capture for long periods of time and then zoom in without any gaps or loss of detail.

With PicoScope, you can collect 250 MILLION samples, more than any other automotive oscilloscope. Our advanced "always-on" memory technology uses hardware acceleration to make sure that the processing of large amounts of data does not slow the oscilloscope down even when you are using a slower or older PC.

Fast sampling

Fast sampling

The latest PicoScopes can capture signals faster than ever. With sampling rates of up to 400 million samples per second, there is nothing that can escape the scrutiny of PicoScope.

CAN and FlexRay are now common on vehicles, and new protocols such as SENT for digital sensors and CAN FD (up to 5x faster than the current CAN standard) are appearing in new vehicles. The fast sampling rate ensures that the PicoScope 4000 Series scopes have the speed to handle future needs as vehicle technology changes.

Guided tests, Waveform Library and PicoDiagnostics

PicoScope guided tests

We understand it can be hard to know what to do when you are new to oscilloscope diagnostics. That is why we have created over 150 guided tests, free with every installation of PicoScope Automotive oscilloscope.

Each test:

  • Sets up the scope for you
  • Shows you how to connect to the vehicle
  • Describes how to perform the test
  • Details typical waveform characteristics and what they mean
  • Gives you example waveforms
  • Explains how the system and component work
  • Outlines related failure modes and the associated symptoms they might cause
  • Lists related DTCs

The tests cover all the important systems and components you are likely to see, including many sensors, actuators, and network systems, such as CAN bus, FlexRay and LIN.

And we’ll continue to add more tests through the free software updates and as vehicle technology changes demand.

PicoScope software - keeps improving

We have been upgrading and improving PicoScope software for over 20 years. This allows us to make the maximum use of the latest technology both in the oscilloscope hardware and the PC itself.  

The modern user interface is uncluttered and easy to use. There are no old-fashioned knobs and dials. We leave most of the space free for what matters: your waveforms.

Features include:

  • 720 degree rotation rulers: ideal for looking at engine timing (see waveform showing crankshaft, camshaft and in cylinder pressure).
  • Channel labels: it's important when saving a file to identify what each channel is measuring but it can be time-consuming.  With channel labels you just type in a few letters and a time-saving list of names is presented.
  • Vehicle database: a list of makes and models is included with the ability to store customer details too. The last few vehicles worked on are stored in a list for quick recall.

Software upgrades are free for the life of the product and download in the background while you are working.

Search in waveform library

Home page in Waveform Library

Waveform Library

Sometimes you may come across an unexpected vehicle or waveform. How would you know how to set up your scope correctly or whether your captured waveforms are typical? Maybe you need a safe place to store your waveforms, or perhaps you have a captured waveform that you know will help others like you?

Our Waveform Library is here to help. It contains thousands of waveforms uploaded by PicoScope users from around the world. You can search and download these waveforms to use as a reference against which to compare your captures or to automatically set up your scope for your specific vehicle and component. Likewise, you can save and upload your waveforms to keep them safe and help benefit the entire Pico community.

PicoDiagnostics

PicoDiagnostics identifies faults that are not easy to find with a scan tool or require additional tooling or equipment. PicoDiagnostics turns your PicoScope Automotive oscilloscope into a powerful diagnostic multi-tool.

With PicoDiagnostics, you can test:

  • Cylinder compression
  • Battery, alternator and starter motor condition
  • Cylinder misfires / balance

PicoDiagnostics saves you time and money - and promotes trust in your customer relationships - with:

  • Quick non-invasive connections
  • Simple setup and test procedures
  • Clear diagnostic outcomes
  • Easy to share, customisable, reports

Cylinder compression

The cylinder compression test helps you to uncover engine mechanical issues in seconds:

  • Clip a test lead to the battery terminals
  • Crank the engine
  • Check the easy to understand bar graph for the relative cylinder compressions (all green bars indicates everything is okay, a red bar indicates a possible issue)
  • Discuss and discuss the findings with your customer

You can calculate absolute compressions by adding an optional pressure transducer to one cylinder, to indicate cylinder pressures in bar or PSI.

Battery, starter and alternator tests

Using PicoDiagnostics, you can check the battery, starter, alternator, and wiring, by just:

  • Connecting a test lead to the battery
  • Connecting test lead between the battery and starter motor (optional)
  • Cranking and starting the engine

The test evaluates the following battery, alternator and starter motor properties:

  • Battery states of charge and health (SOC & SOH)
  • Battery voltage drop during cranking
  • Battery Cold Cranking Amps (CCA)
  • Alternator current output (for under or overcharging)
  • Alternator voltage and ripple (for blown diodes)
  • Starter motor coil resistance (for coil faults)
  • Battery-to-starter motor cable volt drop (and resistance)

Values have red, amber or green highlighting to indicate the test outcome and can be printed for customers. Your customer can see that the electrical system is in good condition or why a component needs replacing.

Cylinder balance

You can check for possible misfires or uneven power contributions across the cylinders with the cylinder balance test:

  • Clip a test lead to the battery terminals
  • Start the engine
  • Check the easy to understand bar graph for the relative power output from each cylinder (all green bars indicates everything is okay, a red bar indicates a possible issue)
  • Print and discuss the findings with your customer

Please note: this test does not support vehicles having engines with cylinder deactivation or low-compression engines with eight or more cylinders

PicoDiagnostics NVH kit

NVH

The PicoDiagnostics NVH software can analyze vibrations and help to diagnose NVH problems. All you need is a PicoScope Automotive oscilloscope, the PicoDiagnostics NVH kit and a software license key (available from Pico Technology support).

The PicoDiagnostics NVH system is in use in thousands of workshops worldwide, due to the speed and simplicity of operation in capturing and analyzing both vibration and noise problems across the whole vehicle.

The system can obtain RPM, speed and other PID data via a J2534 interface (not supplied), and includes the ability to view Parameter ID (PID) values in the time domain.

The PicoDiagnostics NVH system includes special time-domain functions optimized for measuring creaks, squeaks and harshness, such as knocks.

There is also an inbuilt Function Generator that can generate sounds using your laptop. These sounds can stimulate resonance, making an object vibrate with a greater amplitude at its natural frequency. This is a very useful feature when customers complain about interior rattles, as they often have difficulty describing the sound or pinpointing the origin.

To learn more about our NVH system, please visit our product pages.

8-Channel Professional Kit

The 4823 allows you to simultaneously monitor more channels for those applications with more complex signal interactions but has a common ground reference rather than floating inputs and does not feature PicoBNC+ connections. This kit adds a range of BNC accessories to the 4823 providing a level of capability similar to the Advanced kit but with additional leads, adaptors and a third current clamp so you can make full use of all 8 channels. The kit is supplied in a carry case with foam cutouts.

8-Channel Scope only

For experienced oscilloscope users, the 4823 may be a suitable choice for training, vehicle design or complex diagnostics. This oscilloscope (like our earlier generation 4423 and 3423) has a common ground reference rather than floating inputs but does have additional protection against inadvertent connection of ground to power. The input voltage range is only 50V so attenuators are required when measuring signals from inductive components such as injectors The 4823 allows you to simultaneously monitor more channels for those applications with more complex signal interactions and also includes the same low-voltage signal generator as the PicoScope 4824.
