The Diagnostic Journey

To see how you can get the best out of oscilloscope diagnostics with PicoScope, it helps to understand where PicoScope fits into the diagnostic process. Our aim is for PicoScope to help your workshop give your customers the very best diagnostic service. This is the beginning of your Diagnostic Journey.

Let us look at an example:

The animation presents a simplified picture of the power and essence of PicoScope. As we know, fault codes can be easy to come by. However, do not underestimate the importance of testing a component or system before making a final diagnosis.

A PicoScope technician will always try to understand a problem, regularly check technical data and service updates, and test the related components before deciding on a diagnosis.

The real value of applying PicoScope to your diagnostic process lies in having happy customers
who will return again and again. Let your Diagnostic Journey begin!

Tests and more

The next page is a short introduction to Oscilloscope Diagnostics followed by ten example test pages.

If you are new to PicoScope, you may be wondering exactly how you can use it and what benefits it will have for your workshop. With this question in mind we, having consulted with our users, have created what we believe are the top-ten uses for PicoScope.

We have included a brief overview of each test, the benefits the test offers you and most importantly, how to connect to the vehicle, capture the waveform and analyse the captured waveform.

Remember: these tests are supported with test steps, waveform notes, further guidance and a settings file built into the PicoScope Automotive software. Today we have more than 150 guided tests but they, by no means indicate any limit of the capabilities of PicoScope. The only limit is your imagination!
