PicoScope 4823 8-Channel Professional Diagnostic Kit

California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning
Eligible for FREE Ground Shipping(Eligible for FREE Ground Shipping)

The PQ184 8-Channel Professional Diagnostic Kit includes the PicoScope 4823, a high-resolution, 8-channel automotive oscilloscope that features a common-ground configuration, a maximum input range of 50V (protected to 100V), and a maximum sample rate of 80MS/s (10MS/s if using all 8 channels).

The PicoScope 4823 is a low-cost, portable solution for multi-input applications. With 8 high-resolution, high-speed analog channels you have a perfect solution for a range of diagnostic needs such as:

  • V6/V8 Cam timing (4/6 cams plus crank, and sometimes a WPS), and VVT timing systems.
  • Trucks, construction and agriculture equipment that typically requires a mix of electrical and hydraulic measurements on multiple valves simultaneously to diagnose problems with system interaction.
  • Full system diagnosis on components (including power, ground, signals, current)
  • Diagnosing faults on multiple serial busses (CAN, CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay)

The 256 MS deep memory allows several seconds of capture at the full sampling rate (ideal for long captures of serial data or looking for glitches). Managing all this data calls for some powerful tools which are built into PicoScope software: zoom factors of several million are possible, waveform buffer, mask limit test, serial decode, hardware acceleration, deep memory making the PicoScope 4823 one of the most powerful diagnostic oscilloscopes on the market.
