Re: Scope hiding voltage drop??

This does not come as a total surprise, I had heard something like this is possible but this is the first time I have heard of it actually having an effect. I did a lot of my training using Tiepie scopes and the class was set up with about a dozen students each with an individual scope/lappy that co...

Re: NMEA 2000 or J1939 example wanted

Thanks Kev.

I'll have a look there on the other side. I had by passed it as I doubted I'd get a file compatible for the auto scope.
Thought I may be pushing the NMEA2K on "Help me fix my car" as well, hence J1939 (although not car but at least involves wheels).

Cheers

NMEA 2000 or J1939 example wanted

Not a car needing fixed but............. As the title states, I'm after an example of preferably NMEA 2000 data transmission capture but J1939 will do. It's mainly for a project I want to start to give me a better grounding in CAN data manipulation and understanding of what the data frame is made up...

Re: Hi from Australia

G'day Paul and welcome to the forum. Just left Sydney myself last year (well lower Blue Mountains). There's plenty of good reading and plenty of tips on this site. Regarding the pre sets, try and move away from them when you can. It's all about sample rates (1Ms sec for ignition), time base and buff...

Re: Transporter T5 1.9 TDI AXC

Thanks for the clarification. I did read it right. I still have questions about it - more curiosity than anything but I'm not going to derail a thread over wiring design. It a European thing.

Thanks

Re: Transporter T5 1.9 TDI AXC

the injector / glow plug loom under the rocker cover and a round plug at the flywheel end of the engine Thanks. That somewhat explains it slightly better, although probably obvious to guys used to that engine. Originally read the insulation on the wiring at the plugs is very thick as "the insulatio...

Re: Transporter T5 1.9 TDI AXC

I tried to measure the current flow but the insulation on the wiring at the plugs is very thick and won't allow a clamp to record any data. Sorry, I don't understand this part. Is it because the insulation is so thick you can't physically put the clamp around it? If the clamp could fit round the ca...

Re: Golf 4 1999 - Mis- and Backfires

EDIT : Funny that you saw that "odd" Event, i noticed that as well, but i think it is a sort of "Fuel enrichment", because its on all tested injectors and with every snap. Here is a Picture of 3 Snaps with that "odd" Injector behaviour. Yep!. Very common on gasoline EFI on accel/high load like stal...

Re: VW Golf4 BCB not start

Absolutely no offence taken by me. It gives me food for thought, something I enjoy. But I haven't come across Brownian before so I will certainly have a read up. :D
