The Pico PQ175 STARTER Diagnostic Kit includes the 4225A Picoscope module, two PicoBNC+™ test leads and a few accessories. The 4225A uses PicoScope Automotive software which is updated continuously with no subscription costs or in-app purchases. This kit offers a cost-friendly beginning for technicians beginning their PicoScope journey and for those who want to upgrade to the 4425A.

The 4225A generation of Picoscope utilizes PicoBNC+™ that provides smart probe interfacing, powered probes, and status lights on each channel, as well as full compatibility with your existing PicoScope or third-party BNC probes.

The unique capabilities and characteristics of the PicoBNC+™ include:
• Push to connect, does not require a twist like old-fashioned BNC connectors. 
• Identifies the probe to PicoScope software which will auto-configure for that specific probe.
• Provides power from the scope module to the probe, great for overnight battery drain tests! 
• Will Auto-zero current clamps and other probes.
• Includes bright status lights for each channel.
