I think there is lot of training mentioning that the oscilloscope must be used to solve some problems.

However there not one course or webinar that mention how to use it, for ref/sync, or ignition dwell calibration, injectors, or even analyzing signals.

Since pretty much everything can be analyzed on an oscilloscope, I believe a training is a must.

PS: The certificates should be available on the dashboard, where you can download or view them all at once.

PS2: It would also be awesome, to have some log files to analyse together with the webinar/course.

I agree, this could be very handy for some users. I have several scopes and they can be tricky to use even for someone experienced in using them. Things like DSO triggering, triggering on runt pulses, setting up one shot captures to try and find a strange event or glitch can be very daunting.

One other question I raised in a webinar a while ago, is "What bandwidth is suitable for tuning/automotive use?" The different types of crank and cam sensors will all have different pulse shapes, pulse rates and amplitudes, and all of these factors will influence the amount of bandwidth required to see all the details there..

Having said that though, I believe that a 100MHz scope should be enough for nearly all use cases, but I'd love to hear from HPA as they have masses of real world experience to draw upon..

Cheers,

That's a great idea. I'll add a webinar covering some of the basics of oscilloscope operation. I had the opportunity to learn how to use a scope through school and then uni, however I know that many people who have never dealt with one before can struggle initially.

@Fel1979 - I'll take on board your ideas for the certificates although this requires some work from our developer who is currently working on some more critical projects for us first. The idea of a log file you can download for a webinar is great and I'll see what I can do here.

@Matt - The Picoscope we use is one of their base models and is a dual channel 10 MHz scope. The correct bandwidth will depend on the maximum frequency you wish to be able to measure and the general rule of thumb is to have a bandwidth that's 5 times higher than the maximum frequency you wish to be able to accurately measure. In this case a 10 MHz scope is effective at signal frequencies up to approximately 2 MHz. This should be suitable for most of the diagnostic work we're likely to do and you'll pay more for a scope with a higher bandwidth so there's little point having something that totally exceeds your needs.

Hi Andre,

Thanks, it would be very useful information.

Have you thought about leaving the log files for case studies. It always great to have a hands on the training and looking at the file.

Cheers

I'll see if I can include some sample files/logs with some of our upcoming webinars
