Re: Custom Probe - combining 2 channels

you won't catch me sat for hours neither waiting for DMM to change, I would employ amps clamp first for an idea of time/consumption/location but I'm not here for you to tell me how to find a draw & vice versa, if I really wanted to I'd go spend on a Flir not a 4425.

Re: Custom Probe - combining 2 channels

............... I'll carry on with my DMM :roll: One thing for a fact is I won't be buying the new scope, if I'd have known about TiePie before buying my 4423 I would have bought one as it already had differential input channels & sure connect.............. if I bought the new scope how long before ...

Also I'm only looking at reading up to 400bar with this sensor so only over 2v needed on the scale. could anyone remind me how to set this up? I should know but its been a while since i messed...

Re: How to measure a Bosch LSU 4.9 wideband lambda sensor

.This adapter converts very small current into a milli volt output signal. The only drawback by using the method of measurement is, that you has to break into the circuit, but besides this are there no other drawbacks. This would depend on what type of coupling scope you're using because the device...

Re: 24 Volt battery testing.

However I have a question about terminology (sorry, now off topic from 24v to more general 6/12 or 24v batteries) ... while I'm very happy to use the term "Volt Drop" to describe the drop between two ends of a cable etc, I think using the same term to describe the "depression" in voltage of the bat...

Re: Passat 1,9 PD TDI bad noise

Re: Looking for Insights in diagnosis of a Large POP On acce

Set up Pico to record Ignition while at speed. Revving up engine in stall didn't seem to show a problem before and still not now Brake torque ? Adjustable spark tester ? Have a look in the Autonerdz shop for ignition secondary leads (look at a sync probe whilst you're there) I'm sure they did a set...
