Re: Canbus issues

Hello Burt_100, Thank you for your post. Lets tackle one thing at a time and to start with that it seems to not decode. This was due to a slight oversight in the decoder settings where the threshold was set to 3.6V and so outside of where the packet actually is. The decoder will try to fit the signa...

Waveform library

Hello all, I'm after some help. We all know that PicoScope can be used for more than just automotive vehicles - hence this section of the forum. It would be great to see more and more non automotive waveforms in the waveform library. Could I ask that if anyone as any waveforms that might be suitable...

8 wire, brushless DC motor

Recently I found myself going back over some old captures to see which ones might be useful to upload to the waveform library and I stumbled upon some captures I made to follow up on the JCB JS220 EGR fault case study. You can see the full case study here - https://www.picoauto.com/library/case-stud...

Re: GUIDED TESTS

Hello Koolaid2600, Great to hear you've got your PicoScope and getting to grips with the software. Can I ask which version of software you are using? PS6, PS7 Stable or PS7 Early Access. To give a little insight I will refer to PS7 Stable. The guided tests in PS7 Stable are built in with the install...

Re: Cummins 6.7L Exhaust Brake Engaging When Accelerating

Hi Ryan, Sorry for the late reply on this. It sounds like this is going to be one of those jobs! I think we've got to try and get it back to stock software. There are too many variables going on that can be affecting the input. Would be interesting to know if these issues have been there since the d...

Re: 2001 ISC 8.3 CAPS Engine Speed Sensors - ScannerDanner

Thanks for sharing Paul. Great to see ScannerDanner getting involved with HD and I've no doubt it will help. For scope work in the states, worth checking out Diesel Laptops for scope work as they have a branded 4425A PicoScope as well as training. We are hoping to get more content for HD and OH avai...

Re: Connecting to a high voltage AC supply

Hi Tom, As already mentioned please don't use anything other than a differential probe if measuring anything on mains electricity. Attenuators only ever attenuate the signal side meaning the ground is unprotected. It's worth mentioning that depending on where you are measuring you should also be awa...
