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: 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...

Re: Advice needed on charging current waveform

Hello Willyl, Thank you for your post. Motorbike alternators are something we have been asked about before in the past and how we test them PicoScope. I'll be completely honest here and whilst I have spent sometime with these machines they were never something I ever had to deal with on a daily basi...

Re: NVH on a motorcycle?

Hello Andy, It's not something we have tried but it should be perfectly possible. I guess the only issue is where you put all the kit whilst on a road test?!
