Re: relative compression help

the injection process was happening after T.D.C., I thought how could that be, And a very good friend explained to me that it injects in to the inlet manifold on the exhaust stroke ready for when the inlet valve opens. When does sequential injection happen? https://www.autonerdz.com/cgi/yabb2/YaBB....

Re: Laptop specs

Our group is composed of power users. While minimal specs can certainly run PicoScope software, when you push the scope performance, it is PC resource intensive and some PCs will fall down. We recommend a minimum of a 2 GHz duo core processor with 4 gigs of RAM and preferably USB 3.0. More RAM is pr...

Re: PicoScope Automotive and PicoScope 2000 Series?

the 3000 series is still used throughout the world and is actually a better scope now due to the improvements made to the software. Hi Ben, New features, yes indeed, but the newer PicoScope builds have dummied down the block mode performance of the 3000 series. Would be nice if that performance cou...

Re: freezing waveform

Yup. 6.13.6.3775 is a broken build. I suggest you update.

Not aware of any such issues with the current build but it does have a bug with the RPM/Frequency measurement box.

Re: forward and reverse image options

I understand friend, but in this function that you mentioned moves the whole screen, in this option I had before it was possible to advance or delay only one signal example if I caught a wave of vacuum I could advance or delay it in relation to another signal as a signal. rotation What you want to ...

Re: Help for the newbie

I'm abit confused why I need to set to DC as these are Inductive crank sensor 2 wires in a shielded sheath, so I thought these produced AC output. It is a common misconception that AC signals need AC coupling. This comes from a misunderstanding of what AC/DC coupling does. Many of the automotive me...

Re: Advice needed on charging current waveform

We see it with some inductive crank sensors which can cause problems when looking at additional signals. This occurs when improperly hooked up to a floating ground VR sensor. Easy to create a no start condition with your scope. No active differential probe needed. Just hook up properly. What you do...

Re: 2 x 4 Software.

If that was technically possible, it would be ideal for everyone. Everyone that has a four channel would likely buy another as two could be used separately on different vehicles or combined in the less common circumstance when you really need 8 channels. So much more versatile. Pico would sell a LOT...
