Pico 4425A14 April 2020 - Pico Technology launched the new PicoScope 4425A and 4225A diagnostic oscilloscopes, available in 4-channel and 2-channel configurations. This latest diagnostic PicoScope combines all the strengths of the existing 4425/4225 labscopes but adds a smart interface for powered and intelligent accessories (PicoBNC+), which combines the standard BNC with an active digital connection and power. The 4425A and 4225A continue to work with all existing BNC probes and accessories, preserving investments.

The new models make it even easier (and intuitive) for inexperienced users and experts alike, with new test capabilities and future-proofing. Together with a range of accessories, there is a kit for vehicle assessors, and an EV kit coming soon.

The new PicoBNC+ connection is a plug-and-play design – push to connect, and that's it! Interactive LEDs on the scope match the color-coding on the probes when connected. Probes are automatically recognized in the software and set up accordingly, making diagnostics even faster and easier with the PicoScope 4425A:

  • PicoBNC+ probe recognition saves time, reduces errors, and allows new users to become confident and comfortable faster than with other scopes.
  • PicoBNC+ powered probes mean that current clamps are always ready for action, with no batteries or limit on long-term measurements.
  • PicoBNC+ software control provides Auto-zero on probes, avoids manual switch settings, and simplifies probe setup for users.
  • Channel status LEDs provide a clear indication of which probes to connect to which channel, and of active channels.
  • Probe mismatch [PicoScope 7] eliminates the chance of accidental incorrect setup or measurements.

In addition to the new features, the 4425A still offers the benefits seen in the previous 4425 PicoScope: ConnectDetect, ±200V voltage input range, floating input system, high sample rate (up to 400 MS/s), high vertical resolution (12-bit to 16-bit enhanced), SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, 20MHz bandwidth, advanced triggers, advanced filtering, large buffer memory (250 million samples), maths channels, measurement and phase rulers, Pico waveform library, more than 150 guided tests, and the fantastic free Pico software upgrades.

The PicoScope 4425A sets a new standard in diagnostic oscilloscopes for vehicle and equipment technicians, offering unrivalled performance and usability focused on making your diagnostics faster and more accurate than ever before.

The PicoScope 4425A/4225A oscilloscopes and kits are available now from distributors worldwide and directly from Pico Technology.
