Pico 3403D

Post by efisolutions » Mon Sep 03, 2018 1:23 am


We have a chance to purchase a decent PICO 3403D scope but would it work with the auto software and hardware?
If not what would we miss out on?

No, it will not work with PicoScope 6 Automotive, PicoDiagnostics, or provide access to the waveform library.

The maximum input voltage range is only +/-20V , the Automotive Scopes are +/-200V and have better input protection, and the vertical resolution is only 8 bit compared to the 12 bit on the automotive scope so you will see less detail.

It may not be the best purchase even if competitively priced.

I have to agree with Martyn here. :(

You'll also miss out on the Guided Tests and various Automotive specific probe settings.
