Scope Requirements

Post by Andy_r » Tue Jun 06, 2017 10:42 am

Please could you clarify what scope is required for use of the NVH kits?
The web pages say a 4000 series scope is required, but Steve Smith has indicated in a much earlier thread that this isn't required. Having bought my pico back in ~2003, I'm not up to date with the 4000 series!

Assuming Steve is correct, and the older 4 channel scopes are compatible, are there any limitations in use if they are used?

Many thanks

Hi Andy, thank you for the post

The 3000 series automotive scope will function correctly with NVH and there will be no limitations.

The input voltage of your scope is fine and the sample rate is more than adequate to manage any combination of Mic's or accelerometers

I hope this helps, take care......Steve
