Thank you for your post regarding measurements. You can get the low pulse width measurement to work but I find you have to measure between the rulers and make sure one of them is against the induced voltage spike of the injector and then the other can be before the spike to provide you with the pulse width.
There is an easier option and that comes with the introduction of Deep Measure. You can find more about this feature in the following link - https://www.picoauto.com/support/topic17711.html
This allows you to perform multiple measurements on a large amount of data and if you wanted too export this data to Excel for further analysis.
To get started with Deep Measure you have to connect an automotive PicoScope to the PC before starting DeepMeasure. Then select Measurements > DeepMeasure
You will be presented with a dialog box similar to that for serial decoding where you will need to 'create' to add.
In the setup screen you will have to be quite specific about where you would like DeepMeasure to perform measurements.
Here I have asked the measurements to take place on Channel B, looking for a cycle threshold (crossing point) of 5V and a hysteresis (how much I'll allow either side of the threshold) of 2V. Keep the rest of the settings as they are and click ok.
You should now have a table populated with a lot of data which can be amended to only show what you would like to see, in this case Low Pulse Width.
Clicking in any of these fields will take you to the relevant cycle and therefore the injection event you may be interested in seeing. As I mentioned before, all this data can be exported to CSV and manipulated in Excel should you wish to convert this data into graph format.
I've attached the PSDATA as an example if you need it but I think this way should get you results much quicker than using the measurement tool.
Hope this helps and let us know how you get on.
