PicoScope 7 Automotive
Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, the next evolution of our diagnostic scope software is now available.
Pico’s universal 6-way breakout leads eliminate the need to own many specific breakout leads for engine diagnostics. The breakout leads are available with four different sizes of connectors, allowing you to connect to virtually any sensor in the engine compartment of many vehicles.
This product is a set of 6 small breakout leads as specified below
The breakout lead is simply connected into the existing cable loom, enabling voltage readings to be taken from the numerous sensors in the engine compartment.
The output signal can then be taken from the 4 mm banana plugs to the input of the automotive oscilloscope using one of our premium test leads.
Please read these instructions before using the breakout lead. Pico Technology takes no responsibility for any damage caused through incorrect use. These leads are designed to be used by experienced/professional automotive vehicle technicians who understand the implications of incorrect use.
The signal pins must be identified using wiring diagrams or other means.
It may be possible to cause a short circuit to the oscilloscope unit if incorrect connections are made! A short circuit could seriously damage the unit, and would require it to be repaired at the customer’s own cost.
Any measurement taken is only as good as the connection you make to the device under test. The 6-way universal breakout leads will connect to a multitude of vehicle components regardless of connector arrangement. This will ensure you have a 100% successful connection, removing any doubt from your test results. A broadband oxygen sensor test is a typical example where multiple measurements are required for both voltage and current. The 4 mm banana terminals introduce a simple and secure voltage measurement point for your test lead, whilst a current clamp can be applied to any breakout lead to monitor current. The breakout leads can also confirm the integrity of the harness/component "terminal tension" by inspecting for "grip" of the breakout lead terminal inside the vehicle connector.

6-way universal breakout lead, small (1.5 mm)
Wow a breath of fresh air! Superb service! I purchased a couple of small breakout clamps, they came the following day. What a great company…well done.
