Re: Paccar Injector analysis with Michael Eilbracht

Hi Paul, I would always go high, that way you can always come back down the range but you'll always see something. If you have the 2204a on it's way and looking to scope injectors please make sure you use an attenuator and connect to one side of the injector and the reference to chassis. Attenuators...

Re: DEF level sensor

Hi all, Thank you for the feedback and the kind words. We've always said that if something we put out there helps at least one person then it's worth while. The J1939 decoder in PS7 has been a great asset to working with J1939 networks. By being able to see the source address and even creating a lin...

Insulation testing

For those that are actively working with EV's, insulation testing becomes part of the normal routine. Within the Pico EV kit we include an insulation tester which allows users to perform the measurement. So what is insulation testing? Insulation testing is designed to measure how much ‘leakage’ of v...

Re: The bad guys

Interestingly I had the same thing again when putting that reply up so don't think it has anything to do with content of the post.

What I did find though was hitting submit again saw the post uploaded.

All very strange.

Re: The bad guys

Hi all,

I had the same issue yesterday when uploading an article. Not really sure what's going on unless it's to do with images and length of post.

I thought it might have been a one off liviu but clearly not. I'll see what I can find out.

Kind regards

Ben

DEF level sensor

Hi all, Hope all are keeping well. This is a mini case study of sorts but I also wanted to bring another example of where serial decoding can be used to help qualify data between the scan tool and what is available on the CAN network. Customer support called for issue with a Manitou reporting that t...

Re: Paccar Injector analysis with Michael Eilbracht

Hi Paul, Injector voltage levels between engines can vary. From the injectors I've seen it sits somewhere between the 50V and 150V. This can either be the driving voltage or the fly-back voltage once the injector is switched off. The new 4425A is more that capable of handling these voltages but for ...

Re: Howdy

Hi Paul, Welcome to the forum and great to have you on board. Any scope is better than no scope and when you're ready a 4 channel Pico will open you're eyes further to what is possible. There is a lot of information on this site and a good place to start is the useful links page - https://www.picoau...

Paccar Injector analysis with Michael Eilbracht

Hi all,

Nice video here from Michael over at MJE Diagnostics showing how the scope can help diagnosis injector issues when there are no codes.

Enjoy!
