Re: 2013 2.5 Hilux injector comparison on frp

Hello Burt, I think there are a number of questions that need some answering but there is of course a relationship between the rail pressure sensor and an injection event. Below is a capture I took from a machine that had a performance issue. Hitachi Zaxis 470 Capture with math rail pressure.png As ...

Re: protocol SENT

Hello all, Thank you ashtray for uploading this file as I must admit I've yet to see a SENT signal let alone decode it! Mercedes Sent with decode.png I've done the decode based on a SENT FAST and SENT SLOW and you can do the same using the serial decode tool. In SENT FAST you will be asked to select...

Re: Volvo FMX V4 Euro6

Excellent job Sharpy. We've all been there where the mind is ticking away long after we've left the job but this will no doubt help others out in the future.

Great stuff, keep up the good work and I'm sure we all look forward to the next one! :D

Re: TA375

FlexRay with 4823 and TA375 As Steve has already outlined above, the 4225 and 4425 are more than capable of capture FlexRay and successfully decoding the data. With the addition of the 4823 to our scope line up and following a recent customer enquiry, we decided we should see how far you could push ...

Re: 2010 fiesta MAF sensor wiring

Hello Gudgeon, I'm so sorry for the late reply and thank you for your post. We have a case study on a similar 4 wire MAF sensor which you can find here. https://www.picoauto.com/library/case-studies/ford-ecoboost-maf-sensor Hopefully this will help explain some of the signal are at least show you wh...

Re: forward and reverse image options

Hello Marcio, Sorry for the delay. The only way you can manipulate the waveform in this way is by creating a reference waveform. This allows you to overlay multiple captures but add time the all together if the all the captures were taken in the same timebase. Quickest way to create a reference wave...

Re: Advice needed on charging current waveform

Hi Willyl, Thank you for the update and the extra information, interesting to read about the AC clipping on an overloaded alternator. Just to make you aware Willyl be careful with AC voltage on PicoScope. We see it with some inductive crank sensors which can cause problems when looking at additional...

Re: protocol SENT

Hello Marcio, Thank you for your post. SENT isn't uncommon these days and can be found a variety of sensors like the throttle body that you have seen on GM. I expect you will also see it on the MAF sensor as well. To answer your question you should see that SENT is already added on the list of seria...
