OSCILLOSCOPE 3404A FOR MECHANIC

Post by proauto » Thu Nov 17, 2016 10:52 pm

Hi
My name is Claudio Carvalho, I am a mechanic and I live in Brazil.
For twelve years I have been following the products of Pico Technology, I am a great admirer of the Pico Scope Automotive.
In Brazil they are not marketed. I was able to buy a PicoScope 3404A now but it does not run on automotive software.
Can anyone tell me if there is a way I can use this 3404A oscilloscope with automotive software?

The 3404A will only run with the Test and Measurement software, trying to use it in a automotive environment is not advised, it doesn't have the same level of protection.

It is only an 8 bit scope, so would not give the same level of detail as the Automotive models.

Sorry, but you would be better off returning the 3404A and trying to find a way to buy an Automotive Model, either new or second hand.
