Easily scope COP and DIS ignition systems using the AES COP Secondary Paddle Lead (Capacitive).

This rugged 10-foot long, capacitive secondary lead includes a flexible yet sensitive 'paddle' that picks up the secondary signal from any COP system on the road today.  The thin 'paddle' gets into tight spots that no bulky probe can.

DIS is even easier, touch the 'paddle' to any exposed plug wire to pickup the secondary signal. 

To protect from possible high-voltage arcs the lead includes a ground connection that includes a high-quality, gator clip with a large jaw.

The AES COP Secondary Paddle Lead (Capacitive) is attenuated 1,000:1, this means that each 1V displayed on your scope represents 1000V in the secondary. - Jorge from AESwave.com adds, “This is approximate. There are so many different ignition systems and test points that it is impossible to have a specific calibration. In this case, the 1000:1 is more reflective of the circuit that is used inside the probe to attenuate the signal.”

Use the The AES COP Secondary Paddle Lead (Capacitive) with both analog and digital scopes to view waveforms one cylinder at a time on these systems:
- COP
- DIS (EI)

Scope Setup
General instructions for setting your scope to display a COP and DIS signal are included with the test lead.
 
Test Lead Configuration
Standard lengths are 6-ft and 10-ft long.  
 
Connection to scope: The test lead is configured with either BNC or banana plugs for connecting to your scope (tell us which connector you need when placing your order).  For scopes with banana plug inputs, the lead's ground banana plug is stackable to allowing other channels to access the scope's ground when using multiple channels.  
 
Connection to vehicle: The test lead has two connections to make on the vehicle: Large gator to vehicle ground and paddle for signal.

 

Characteristics of the AES COP Secondary Paddle (Capacitive) Test Lead
(AES# 01-16):
Attentuation*:   1000:1 
Connector at Scope**:    Available with Banana Plugs, BNC, BNC Fluke-style, BNC insulated
Cable:   ST3, shielded 
Color:   Black 
Length:     6-ft and 10-ft (ask about custom lengths)
Connector(s) at vehicle:   Signal: Sensitive, flexible sensor paddle
  Ground: Stainless steel Gator with large Jaw

* Most scopes offer the option to set the attenuation. If so, select 1000:1 as a rule of thumb. 1V displayed on your scope represents 1000V in the secondary. If your scope does not offer a 1000:1 option, that is okay. Just leave it at 1:1.

The uScope and the the Paddle Probe

ScannerDanner uses AES' Universal Secondary Test Lead Kit (the Paddle Probe) to compare an open plug wire to a known-good on a Dodge Caravan 3.8. NOTE: The Paddle Probe used in the video has a BNC connector and Paul uses an adapter to connect it to the uScope. The Paddle Probe included with the uScope kit does not require an adapter.

Snap-on VantagePro with the AES Coil-over-Plug Paddle Probe

The  captures below were captured a Snap-on VantagePro while using the AES COP Paddle. They show a good and a bad coil from a Honda Fit.

 

Each signal was captured at two different scales: 3kV/div and 1 V/div.

 

A setting of 3kV/div let’s you see the entire spike and the events occurring before and after the spike.

 

To see details such as spark line, firing time, and oscillations, you can change to 1 V/div.
