Re: Software not recognizing scope

As with all these sort of questions you will need to put some effort in at the front end .... So: Scope model? Software version (Pico)? OS? + Fully patched and up to date? What USB lead are you using? Does the scope work normally for measurements? Have you tried it on another computer? Post the answ...

Re: Ford FXJA/FXJB Cam & Crank WF Please

Vasek, You Sir are a gentleman and a scholar! :D :D Your WF gave me the evidence to present to the client to prove that the CMP/CKP alignment is wrong. :roll: I did suggest they return to whoever did the repairs originally but they want me to sort it out for them. I will post my findings and upload ...

Re: Amps maxed out.

Steve, In a word "YES" The longer version..... :roll: Currents clamps do not measure current and neither do Oscilloscopes. An oscilloscope at it's most basic level is the bastard child of a clock and a volt meter that later in life had simultaneous unnatural relations with a roll of graph paper and ...

Re: Amps maxed out.

Assuming the current in the circuit you are testing is likely to be more than 2000 Amps? (Circuit / System Knowledge! :idea: ) then probably the only way to get an accurate representation is to invest in a more suitable clamp for the expected peak current you intend to measure. If you are not too bo...

Re: BNC Extension lead

Re: BNC Extension lead

Hi Steve, Glad to be of assistance. :D You have got me wondering now, whether a couple of TA130's plus an amp clamp would have a noticeable effect on signal accuracy and or clarity. I have a collection of those adapters so I think I may experiment with joining 2 leads together to simulate your scope...

Re: BNC Extension lead

The TA130 from Pico HERE is 2 Metres longer at 5 Metres, and no hassle with import duties and VAT being added on at the port. :D All you will need is a gender changer for couple of quid from eBay. (Example...
