screen shot of lambda probing
peugeot 206 1.4 lambda back probed at connector and earthed at the battery but the amount of noise is ridiculous tried a couple of different earths and different croc clips??

Use a filter to get a cleaner signal. Lambda signals can be very noisy.

Click on the channel number above the waveform. There you can activate the filter.

If all you're scoping is the O2 sensor then you can use it's own ground for a cleaner signal, I don't worry about much noise on an O2 & just add a filter.
