Re: What are the advantages of a 4 channel kit over the 2 ch

Hi Jarrod You have mentioned on this thread that you work on upto 8 cylinders. It might be worth depending on what type of Scope you decide to go for i.e. 4 Channel or 2 Channel to take a look at the Mixmaster. This will allow you to look at the 'Secondary Signals' on upto 12 Cylinders at once. If y...

Re: 4423 no comms with laptop

Hi Damian If you have tried different cables USB then im assuming for now this isnt the problem. Im guessing you have maybe just carried out a Software upgrade.

Dear Sir/Madam Firstly thank you for your forum post. There is an issue though with obtaining the specific adaptor as unfortunately not any normal adaptor will work this. You would need a Pico Technology Parallel to USB adaptor but unfortunately you can no longer purchase these through us at Pico Te...
