Product Description

Turn your PC into a high resolution oscilloscope with the EASE PC Scope Software and the PicoScope automotive oscilloscope.    An automotive scope can be used to measure and test virtually all of the electrical and electronic components and circuits in any modern vehicle. 

Designed to save you time and money.  Automotive oscilloscopes make it easier and faster to diagnose faults on today’s modern vehicles. Fast sampling speeds, large memory and bandwidth means that not only is it suitable for use on all current vehicles, but it will continue to be of use in diagnosing faults with the complex electrical and electronic systems that will be found on new and future generations of vehicles.

Easily capture large and complex waveforms.   The large sample buffer of this automotive oscilloscope allows complex waveforms to be captured in great detail — even if they last for long periods of time; while the high resolution makes it possible to expand the captured waveform to allow you to examine every last detail of the waveform. The PicoScope is a dual-channel oscilloscope and is capable of capturing waveforms from up to 2 sensors at once.

Do I need a scope or a scan tool?   Scan tools and scopes do very different jobs, so an automotive repair shop needs both.  Our PC Scan Tool and PC Scope software were designed to work together for powerful diagnostic capabilities. This way a user can simultaneously use the Scan Tool and the Scope to effectively diagnose the problem, all on one PC!

In the workshop or on the road — the choice is yours.  This automotive oscilloscope is powered directly from the USB port of your computer — eliminating the need for power leads or battery packs, and making the PicoScope suitable for use both for workshop-based and mobile automotive diagnostics.

This custom EASE package includes PicoScope 4225 two channel automotive oscilloscope, USB cable,  PicoScope Automotive Software CD,  EASE Automotive PC Scope Software CD,  Black and Red Multimeter Probes,  Blue, Red and Black Gator Clips,  Secondary Ignition Pickup, Inductive Trigger Pickup, Blue and Red Test leads, Storage Case and one year of technical support .

This package requires a Windows desktop, laptop or tablet PC.   The scope unit gets its power through the USB cable, so there’s no extra power adapter needed.

What Does It Mean?

Vertical resolution:  The number of dots in the waveform from top to bottom. “12 bits” means 4,096 dots, which is more detail than you can see on the screen all at once. PicoScope stores the extra detail for when you zoom in.

Buffer memory:   The number of dots in the waveform from left to right. If you don’t have enough memory then the waveform won’t show all the detail in the signal. PicoScope has more than enough memory, so you can zoom in thousands of times and still see a clear display and spot intermittent glitches.

Waveform buffer:   A memory that collects your most recent waveforms. If a waveform disappears off the screen, you can look back through the waveform buffer to find it.

Trigger:   This ensures that the scope captures the waveform at the right time and keeps it in a stable position on the screen. PicoScope usually sets up the trigger automatically, but if you want you can select special trigger modes to catch unusual waveforms that you might otherwise miss.

Bandwidth:   Not something that you need to worry about most of the time, but for faster signals, more bandwidth gives a more faithful reproduction of the signal shape on the screen. PicoScope has enough bandwidth to display CAN bus and FlexRay signals accurately.

Sampling rate:   Like bandwidth, this is more important for fast signals. A high sampling rate gives more detail across the screen, so you can zoom in to see the high frequency details of the signal.
