The Pico PQ178 STANDARD Diagnostic Kit includes the 4425A Picoscope module, PicoBNC+™ test probes, and accessories in a sturdy carrying case. The 4425A uses PicoScope Automotive software which is updated continuously with no subscription costs or in-app purchases. It's easy for students and novices to use, and powerful enough for Master Technicians, trainers, and instructors. 

The 4425A 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. Image below shows probes with PicoBNC+™ and traditional BNC connected to the 4425A.

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.

PicoScope 4425A Hardware
The PicoScope 4425A scope module includes the features that make PicoScope hardware the most powerful and versatile automotive scope:
• ±200 V to ±50 mV input ranges with floating inputs
