Saelig Company, Inc. announces the new PicoScope 4425A EV Oscilloscope Kit, designed to provide a comprehensive diagnostics capability for all types of vehicles with electric and internal combustion powertrains. It provides service shops with a future-proof system for analyzing vehicles with high-voltage batteries and electric motor systems. In combination with the extensive range of Pico accessories, the PC-connected 4425A kit is an easy-to-use system that includes extensive technician guidance to investigate engines, motors, sensors, actuators, communications buses, and noise/vibration/harshness on the latest vehicle designs.
The importance of electric traction is evident in the effort to move to clean and renewable energy, with the consequent reduction of harmful emissions and particulates. Pico Technology has produced an analysis kit that allows technicians to be just as safe, efficient and effective working with electric powertrains as they are with internal combustion engines. The PicoScope 4425A EV Kit contains all of the test equipment required to work safely on electric vehicles to investigate faults likely to cause safety issues. The wide range of EV systems covered includes, DC HV energy system or the AC motor/generator drive system, charging behavior and 12V/HV battery current split issues, ‘CP/PP’ communications between the charging system and vehicle, 3-phase current measurements to check winding balance under load, all 12V and 48V systems
In addition to the new EV capability, the 4425A offers ConnectDetect smart sensor detection , ±200 V voltage input range, floating input system, high sample rate (up to 400MSa/s), high vertical resolution (12-bit to 16-bit enhanced), a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface and 20MHz signal bandwidth. To assist with diagnostics, it has advanced triggering and filtering, a large buffer memory (250MSa), math channels, measurement and phase rulers, a Pico reference waveform library, more than 150 guided tests and free Pico software upgrades. Additionally, the free PicoScope 7 software delivers ease of use even for less experienced technicians. The PC-connected 4425A allows for the use of large-screen displays in workshops, making measurements clearly visible at all times. PicoScope test results can be printed and data can even be shared across a network.
The PicoScope 4425A EV Oscilloscope Kit offers comprehensive coverage on all types of vehicles (automobiles, trucks, buses, motorcycles, agricultural and construction equipment, off-highway, and industrial systems.) Made by Pico Technology, the PicoScope 4425A is available now from Saelig Company, Inc., their USA technical distributor.
