A PicoScope (sometimes known as a labscope) turns your laptop or desktop PC into a powerful diagnostic tool. Think of it as the X-ray machine of diagnostics, letting you see the changing signals inside wires. You can purchase a PicoScope on its own, but most people purchase one of our award-winning Automotive Diagnostics Kits. These money-saving kits contain everything you need – just add a PC.
This New PicoScope 4225A for autmotive diagnostic oscilloscope with design accessory interface, called PicoBNC+™, combines a standard BNC receptacle with active digital and power connections. The 4225A will still work with existing BNC probes and accessories, preserving previous accessory (4225 scope) investments.
The new 4225A model makes it even easier and more intuitive for inexperienced users and experts alike, with new test capabilities as part of the design. The new PicoBNC+ connection is a 'push to connect' plug-and-play design. Interactive LEDs on the scope match the color-coding on the probes when they are connected. These probes are automatically recognized by the PicoScope Automotive 7 software and settings are adjusted accordingly, making diagnostics even faster and easier with the PicoScope 4225A automotive oscilloscopes.
PicoBNC+ probe recognition saves time, reduces errors, and allows new users to become confident and comfortable faster than with other scopes. PicoBNC+ powered probes mean that current clamps are always ready for action, with no batteries or limit on long-term measurements. PicoBNC+ software control provides Auto-zero for probes, it avoids manual switch settings, and simplifies probe setup for users.
Channel status LEDs provide a clear indication of how probes can connect to the appropriate channel, and which channels are in use. The probe mismatch test in PicoScope 7 software eliminates the chance of accidental incorrect setup or erroneous measurements. In addition to many new features, the 4x25A scopes still offer the benefits seen in the previous 4x25 PicoScopes.
With PicoScope 7 software, any automotive PicoScope, you have exclusive access to unique features and a comprehensive set of resources, including our guided tests, the Waveform Library, phase rulers, more than 150 guided tests, free lifetime Pico software upgrades and PicoDiagnostics.
PicoScope Automotive software is free with no subscriptions or in-app purchases.
You can explore the latest version now by downloading and running it with a demo device - you don’t even need a scope!
PicoScope devices are used and trusted by more authorized and independent repairers than any other measurement system because they give the capability, confidence and support to find and prove the solution for most vehicle faults quickly. PicoScope software is invaluable for diagnosing electrical, pressure, hydraulic, and NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) faults, offering comprehensive coverage on vehicles of every type, trucks, buses, motorcycles, agricultural and construction equipment, off-highway and industrial systems.
The PicoScope 4225A automotive oscilloscopes set a new standard in diagnostic oscilloscopes for vehicle and equipment technicians, offering unrivaled performance and usability focused on making diagnostics faster and more accurate than ever before. PicoScopes benefit from more than 25 years of investment in the world's best diagnostic oscilloscopes.
