Picoscope Automotive Training

Why do I need Picoscope Automotive Training?

Picoscope Automotive Training is essential to get the most out of your ‘scope’. Without training your oscilloscope will not feature heavily in your diagnostic process, and may end up left in the box holding the office door open. That’s one expensive door stop.

Our Basic Pico Oscilloscope Training course is designed to get you scoping with increased confidence. It is ideal for technicians who are new to ‘scopes’ as well as more experienced users.

When Do I need to use an Oscilloscope?

Automotive Oscilloscopes are not new, but they have evolved just like the technology they are used to measure.

The early ‘scopes were used to analyse ignition systems, and have never stopped being used for this purpose, but using a digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) has become necessary due to the speed of modern electrical signals and control methods.

Digital Multi Meters simply do not have the sample rate to display many common electrical signals, so to measure and evaluate these signals you require an oscilloscope.

We offer two levels of picoscope Automotive Training; Basic and Advanced.

Both courses are a mixture of theory and practical sessions and delegates are encouraged to participate as much as possible.

The Basic Course Covers;

  • Basic Scope Set up
  • Triggers
  • Sample Rate
  • Filters
  • Basic Component Testing

The Advanced Course Covers;
