More channels.

Post by saabin » Sat Feb 13, 2016 7:03 pm

I was curious if the Pico automotive software can be used with a non automotive PicoScope. Specifically the 4824 (or other Pico 8 channel scope). I realize you would have to be super careful with attenuator use being that it's only a 50 volt scope but the extra four channels would be nice every now and then.

Hi There,

The PicoScope Automotive software is locked to certain models of scope (those with higher input levels) and the 4824 is not one of them unfortunately.

I have progressed with Pico from 2 channels to 4 channels and would like to progress to 6 Channels, 8 if that's all Pico offer.

Rarely need more than two, but when we do - WE DO !!

The latest 4xxx Automotive is on at £799 but there is no real incentive to replace my 3000 4 Channel. My money is better spent on more accessories, more learning.

Should the 4824 become an automotive scope with a price tag higher than that of £1399 it retails at, I am in. Even if it came with 8 20-1 Attenuators Superglued to it.

I'm new here so will leave it at that.

Perhaps Pico would create a Poll just to estimate the economic viability of this Idea
