Re: Relative compression strange issue

You are right the student had move the amp clamp around on that second capture. What was strange was the large hump which has higher current. I was not sure why this was happening. Thanks for your response. Joe If by the large hump you mean the first one on the left hand side I suspect this one was...

Re: Relative compression strange issue

Hi, These look normal to me - perhaps one thing is that with the 2nd waveform the current clamp is the other way around so the current is negative. The first waveform shows how less current is required to compress the cylinder where the plug is removed. The other, once the engine is rotating shows t...

Re: Discard Logged Buffers

Most people want as many buffers as possible, as Tom says you can choose to only save the one you want. If for some reason you want less then you can go to tools / preferences / general and reduce the no of waveform buffers.

Re: What scopes will work with pico automotive software

Hi, PicoScope automotive will work with ADC-212 (Old parallel port oscilloscope) PicoScope 3223 / 3423 (USB2.0) PicoScope 4223 / 4423 (USB2.0) PicoScope 4225 / 4425 (USB3.0) I would avoid the ADC-212 as its too old / uses the obsolete parallel port. The PicoScope 4x25 scopes are the best automotive ...

Re: howdy

Hi & Welcome!

The waveform library does require an automotive PicoScope to be connected to your PC to view. What model (if any) of scope do you have connected?

Re: Issue with Triggering from a filtered channel?

Hi, As Steve says the filter is applied in software so is done after the hardware trigger in the scope. If you have a PicoScope 4425 / 4225 then you also have an additional hardware filter that is before the trigger. Its in the channel options drop down menu. Its good for getting rid of noise like t...
