    WARNING STATEMENT: SPECIAL CARE TO BE TAKEN WHILE WORKING AROUND MOTOR VEHICLES:

     

    ANSED strongly recommends that special care be taken when working around motor vehicles and/or internal combustion engines.  Motor Vehicles and internal combustion engines are a source of dangerous exhaust gases, components that may cause burns or other injuries, moving parts that may cause serious injury, and the operation of which entails certain risks of accidents due to inattention of the operator or another party. 

     

    ANSED recommends that all possible care be taken when taking exhaust samples – including but not limited to:  Never operate an internal combustion without proper ventilation systems in place, never attempt to touch the sample probe without protective gloves to prevent possible burns, never attempt to operate a motor vehicle and operate the test equipment at the same time (always have a dedicated driver of the vehicle and a second technician to operate the test equipment when attempting to take samples from a vehicle under load – whether on a street or traffic way, or while operating the vehicle in a stall with a dynamometer or similar equipment).

     

    You can identify problems in a system BEFORE OBDII can set a code. You will know something is starting to fail, or getting weaker, before you have a light on the dash (and the resulting diagnostics which MAY be more pinpoint.  MAY, because a trouble code typically takes you down a diagnostic trouble tree to check out all of a system…. the same trouble tree you would use if you did not have the code. Most codes do not say “Replace xxxxx”…they say you have a misfire on a particular cylinder (or group of cylinders) – and then leads you differently by each manufacturer to determine whether it is coil / plug / wire / injector / compression, intake leak or whatever – in the order of most likely).  The fact is, without a code – OBDII is helpless.  If you already have a code – that’s where you start.  If you do NOT have a check engine light / code set – then Exhaust Diagnostics is the only way to identify a potential fault.


    Because you can identify problems before a code is set – you are in better position to offer services before additional damage is done.  Waiting for a code to set, and the resulting drive time before getting it serviced can cause damage to things like the catalytic converter, O2 sensors and so forth.  Not to mention poorer fuel economy and performance.   The fact is, using Exhaust Diagnostics on every car is the best way to sell preventative maintenance services.  OBDII readers are the quick way to deal with cars that ALREADY HAVE A KNOWN PROBLEM.

    How long do you have to warm up the vehicle before putting in the probe?

    • Engine should be at normal operating temp and in closed loop verified by scan tool.  If computer doesn't go into closed loop proper exhaust measurements can't be taken.

    How long do you wait before after you insert the probe?

    • It typically takes 1-2 minutes after probe insert.  The numbers will ALWAYS change, but when they appear to STABILIZE (typically moving in small increments)

    Is it normal that the HC level will fluctuate dramatically between cooled down engine and warmed up engine? 

    • HC will always be dramatically higher during start-up (cool engine), both due to efficiency and due to the converter kicks in and burns the rest of the fuel (HC is unburnt fuel).

    If during the measurement, the tube falls loose, what are the procedures to again obtain accurate numbers? plug and remeasure?  Manually zero again? shut down and start over?   

    • Just put the tube back and wait for the readings to stabilize again

    Does the tube need to be blown out with air compressor after every test? 

    • It is good practice to blow out the hose / tube to eliminate moisture which is harmful to the accuracy.  

    What is Car Exhaust Diagnostics?

    • The gas concentrations that are measured in a car exhaust can be used to diagnose problems or faults within the engine or its management system. The difference in exhaust readings between cars with and without catalytic converters is huge.
    • Note that NOx is only created when an engine is under load. To test for NOx the car must either be driven on the road or use be made of a dynamometer. When using a dynamometer for NOx testing the exhaust gases are extremely hot (the engine is under heavy load and there is no slipstream ventilation) so a high temperature exhaust probe must be used. NOx levels of 3000 to 4000 ppm are common even for new well-tuned engines when under load.
    Why is monitoring exhaust emissions important?

    • Gas analysis provides an instant assessment of the engine, the condition of the exhaust and catalytic converter – It’s the easiest diagnostic test to perform.  To reduce fuel consumption, improve vehicle drivability and protect the environment.

    What can AUTOplus5 be used for?

    • Measuring exhaust emission on petrol/gasoline, LPG & CNG vehicles, making it ideal for: Pre-compliance testing, vehicle servicing & diagnostic work.

    What is included in the AUTOplus5 kit?


    • The standard AUTOplus5 Kit Includes 5 Gas Analyzer, EPAUTO7 Hi-Temp Probe, AC Charger, 12V DC Charger, 5 Replacement Filters, User Manual & Quick Start Guide, CL5 USB Cable, KANE Live Graphing Software, the ANSED Exhaust Diagnostics Software, all in a Soft Shoulder Bag. There are other kits, please enquire.

    Is the AUTOplus5 portable?

    • AUTOplus5 handheld analyzer can be powered by AC, DC 12v power supply or its own internal rechargeable battery which can give up to 120 minutes use on a full charge.  This means you can go anywhere and use anywhere – even road testing.
    • Compact design means a small pump which reduces the moisture content in the sample – Larger more expensive gas analyzers use larger pumps which improves response time but can cause issues with water ingress. This isn't a problem with AUTOplus5.

    Is the AUTOplus5 easy to use?

    • The AUTOplus5 is controlled using a simple keyboard. The large easy to read graphic display shows all gas readings and can be customized if required to suit a particular requirement. A fast warm up of less than 2 minutes ensures you are ready to use quickly

    What does the AUTOplus5 measure?

    • AUTOplus5 measures vehicle exhaust systems for 5 gases; Carbon Monoxide % (CO), Hydrocarbons PPM (HC), Carbon Dioxide % (CO2), Oxygen % (O2), Oxides of Nitrogen PPM (NOx) & Air Fuel Ratio (AFR) or Lambda.

    Does the AUTOplus5 have an internal memory?

    • The AUTOplus5 will log up to 100 tests these can be stored manually or automatically. These can then be transferred to a PC if required.

    Can I print the readings?

    • You are able to print both live and stored readings using the optional InfraRed printer, p/n# KMIRP2-BLU.

    Does the AUTOplus5 have Bluetooth?

    • Yes, the AUTOplus5 has Class1 Bluetooth and the KANE LIVE software can be downloaded free.

    What should the readings be?

    • For a gasoline engine at normal operating temperature, depending on the vehicle and the efficiency of the catalytic convertor the following are expected results:
    • CO = 0.05% or less
    • HC = 100ppm or less
    • CO2 = 14-15%
    • O2 = 0.1- 1%
    • NOx = 100-200ppm or less
    • AFR 14.7:1 /Lambda = 1

    What is the Hydrocarbon Measurement?

    • Hydrocarbons are a family of compounds with a combination of hydrogen and carbon molecules HxCy.  When using infra-red absorption as the measurement technique the particular calibration gas needs to be specified because different types of hydrocarbons are absorbed at different levels. The hydrocarbon sensor used in the KANE Automotive analyzers is specifically set for the hydrocarbon compound known as hexane.

    What does NOx mean?

    • NOx is a general term pertaining to oxides of nitrogen, the most common being nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2).  Nitrogen oxides are typically created in the combustion process when burning fuels at high temperatures.

    Does cold weather affect my analyzer?

    • Yes, it is vital that analyzers are kept in a warm, dry place overnight.  If an analyzer is left in a vehicle on a cold night the next morning it may display "-----"O2 and not the expected 20.9% O2, (other readings taken by the analyzer can also be affected).  This happens because condensation can form on the oxygen sensor's inlet or even on the circuit board. This prevents correct operation and may cause damage to the analyzer.  If you experience this condition, it may be possible to rectify the problem yourself. Leave the instrument in a warm place for a few hours with the pump running. This may dry out the oxygen sensor enough to get a reading.

    When do I know that the readings, I am seeing are the ones I should record or print?

    • As a general rule of thumb, you should wait until all the readings are stable - approximately 1 minute after inserting the sampling probe into a vehicle that has reached full operating temperature.

    What readings can I expect from a diesel exhaust?

    • The exhaust gas readings from diesel exhausts very widely depending on the type of engine management system.  A five-gas analyzer will accurately measure the following gases: Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx). It will also measure Hydrocarbons (HC) but because the analyzer’s response is optimized for hexane, the HC readings from a diesel's exhaust will be inaccurate (very low maybe only 5% or so of true HC reading) and should be discounted.   Note: To create representative levels of NOx, the engine must be under load.
    • Catalytic Converter and Exhaust System Codes P420-P439
    •  The exhaust system plays a significant role in the performance of the engine.  Damage to the system (crushing), leakage or any problem that causes a catalytic converter failure requires extra attention. 
    • A good rule of thumb:  The catalytic converter should last the life of any car – meaning anytime you set these series of codes and have a catalytic converter failure, something has likely happened to damage or contaminate the catalytic converter.  
    • Please read the following section carefully for a series of quick and simple tests to insure you correct the underlying problem.
    • Although many technicians automatically replace a catalytic converter when they see these codes, they often correct only a symptom – not the underlying cause.  In some situations, the catalytic converter may be perfectly good, but may not operate efficiently due to an imbalanced fuel mixture, or an exhaust leak or other problems as outlined below.
    • Before automatically replacing the converter, you can easily verify the performance of the converter with the following manual tests with your 4 or 5-gas analyzer:
    • First, verify that you have a LAMBDA reading between .995 and 1.005 after any repairs.   This step is critical, as consistent readings outside this range will reduce the catalytic converter's efficiency:
    • Look closely for any indicators of a lean condition. This could be a LAMBDA reading higher than 1.005 – or situations where the O2 value exceeds the CO value, or when fuel trim numbers from your scanner indicates a correction for lean condition.  If any of these conditions are present, you likely have a small vacuum leak, weak fuel pressure, restricted fuel filter or something similar.  Note: The on-board computer may be making corrections to offset a lean condition, if undiagnosed and repairs are not made, the result could be reduced converter performance and durability.
    • High hydrocarbons are often an indicator of other potential problems.  If Lambda is good, and hydrocarbons exceed 65 ppm, you may still have an issue with spark or compression.  If left unchecked this can result in reduced converter performance and durability, and eventually carbon contamination of the converter and O2 sensors.
    • Second, verify that the converter is functional with this simple test:
    • Make sure there are no exhaust leaks and that the engine is in good fuel control.
    • Allow the engine and exhaust system to cool off.
    • Start the engine, and note the CO2 reading once it stabilizes after approximately one minute of idling.
    • Once you have recorded the CO2 reading, raise the engine rpm to a fast idle (between 1500 and 2000 rpm) for 1 minute – and then return to idle and observe the CO2 reading again once stabilized. If your CO2 reading is at least .5% point higher after the fast-idle period – your converter is functional and has "lit off". Please note that a catalytic converter can't "light off" unless Lambda is between .98 and 1.02.
    • If the readings are virtually the same, you likely have a contaminated or damaged catalytic converter.
    • If the test indicates a contaminated or damaged catalytic converter, a more in-depth assessment of the engine and all related systems is required, as replacing a catalytic converter that failed due to contamination without finding the underlying cause will lead to a second failure.  Common causes of failure due to contamination are:
    • Cooling system (head gasket, intake gasket) leakage
    • Use of non-catalytic converter safe gasket sealants
    • Excess oil consumption 
    • Use of improper fuels.
    • Often, common causes of converter failure such as problems with the ignition system, sensors, EGR system or fuel system components will often have other trouble codes (multiple codes are possible) set at the same time as the P420 – 439 series of codes, making diagnostics much easier.
    • A third test is designed to determine if the catalytic converter is capable of performing its job by checking the inlet and outlet temperatures with an infrared thermometer:
    • Make sure there are no exhaust leaks and that the engine is in good fuel control.
    • Measure the temperature of a fully warmed up converter (engine at normal operating temperature, and after a 1 minute at fast idle), by pointing your infrared thermometer at the Front Weld Ring (not the shielded area of the converter) and at the Rear Weld Ring.   There should be a difference of at least 150 degrees F (65 degrees C), with the Rear Weld Ring being at the higher temperature, indicating that the converter has “lit off” and is capable of doing its job.
    • It is important to note that normal converter temperatures rarely exceed 1200 degrees F (650 degrees C) on a properly running car.  If you see temperatures higher than that, there is very likely a problem in the ignition, fuel or engine systems.
    • Periodic or repeated temperatures exceeding 1600 to 1700 degrees F (870 to 925 degrees C) will likely damage a catalytic converter’s precious metals and substrate leading to a total failure.
    • The last step is to verify the repairs by test-driving the vehicle:
    • Use a scan tool to verify that the converter has passed the PCM monitors.   If it does not, revisit the steps listed above.
    • During the test drive, monitor the misfire counter during various speed and load conditions.   Misfires introduce both excessive oxygen and fuel into the exhaust.   This combination will quickly cause the catalytic converter temperature to rise excessively, which can cause rapid damage (melting) of the substrate.

    1. What is ANSED Exhaust Gas Diagnostics?

      1. ANSED Exhaust Gas Diagnostics is a unique software package. Upon input of the measured and calculated values from a Gas Analyzer, it will produce a diagnosis to help the technician identify and solve problems fast and effectively. 

    2. What do I get for my license subscription?

      1. Every ANSED software license sold includes a lifetime license for use, access to all updates, instructional training of the program and the ability to store all test reports. 

    3. What are system requirements to run ANSED Exhaust Gas Diagnostics?

      1. To use ANSED software you will need the following:

        1. An internet connection, at least 512k, although we recommend a minimum of 1 MB

        2. A web browser. The following browsers* are supported (or newer versions):

          1. Chrome© version 30.0

          2. Firefox© version 25.0

          3. Internet© Explorer version 9

          4. Safari© version 6

    4. What types of vehicles can be tested with ANSED?

      1. ANSED software is designed to test virtually any gasoline or flex fuel-powered vehicle with a spark generated ignition system, from automobiles to motorcycles, either on or off road.

    5. Why can’t I test Diesel fueled vehicles?

      1. The primary reason that diagnostics for diesel-fueled vehicles were not included in the software is the high particulate levels in the tailpipe samples.  The “soot” will clog the analyzers filter systems very quickly.  Diesel fueled vehicles are commonly tested with an “opacity meter”, as well as a NOx analyzer – or a multi-gas analyzer with a special filtration system. 

    6. Can I use ANSED for LPG and CNG powered vehicles?

      1. Yes.  The emissions of these vehicles are quite similar to the various gasoline blends, and the ANSED software was designed to include diagnostics for these vehicles.

    7. How do different gas types affect the outcome (i.e. Super vs. Regular)?

      1. Whether the vehicle is running on Super, Regular, Plus, Gasohol, or E-85 brands of gasoline, you will find there is absolutely no impact on the diagnostic results.   Correct AFR ratios vary widely with these different fuels, making AFR a potentially unreliable method to use for diagnostics.  ANSED software is designed to utilize Lambda (which is unaffected by different fuel types) readings instead of AFR, allowing you to test virtually any gasoline blend and get accurate results.   

    8. Why isn’t NOx being used in the diagnostics?

      1. NOx can be an important variable for vehicles that fail in LOADED testing.  Although NOx testing was considered during the development of the software, it was determined that the proper course was to design the software specifically for static testing.  In static testing, it is virtually impossible to create NOx.  

      2. If NOx is present during LOADED testing, there WILL typically be a failure in the other 4 gas readings.  The diagnostics in the ANSED software will still point to the same answer. The presence of NOx at unacceptable levels is merely another proof of a problem that is diagnosed with the other 4 gases or a trouble code. 

      3. Testing for NOx requires a dynamometer, which adds significant costs for the repair shop. 

      4. There are liability issues in many states regarding test drives and insurance costs for the workshop of requiring test drives for the software to work properly. 

      5. The state of internal diagnostics (onboard computer systems) for NOx related problems are actually quite good.  Since NOx is an indicator of a significant problem with cylinder temperature that can lead to catastrophic engine failure and huge warranty expenses, the manufacturers have paid close attention to making sure trouble codes are set once NOx is being created in the engine.

    9. Why do I have to clear the MIL / Check Engine Light before testing?

      1. When a vehicle with an on-board computer detects a fault, the on-board computer goes into a “default” mode of operation.  In that mode, the onboard computer is using a set of values for fuel delivery and timing to make up for a known problem.  The best thing for a technician to do is correct the known problems before attempting the advanced diagnostics with the ANSED software.  Having a known trouble code is similar to opening the hood and seeing a wire unplugged or seeing or hearing a major vacuum leak.   The technician needs to correct the obvious problems before looking deeper.

    10. What does an efficient catalytic converter (CAT) do to our readings?

      1. Analyzing the CAT was very important in the software design process.  An efficient CAT cleans up a bit of the excess HC, CO, O2 (but not enough to impact the diagnosis at the levels of each gas we are using) but has zero impact on Lambda. ANSED Diagnostic Software utilizes all four gases, the Lambda reading and certain information about the vehicle, in combination, for diagnostics that are superior to diagnostics made on the four gases alone.  In addition, the ANSED software incorporates tests that look for an inefficient CAT operation, so that ANSED can be utilized by the CAT manufacturers for warranty purposes.

      2. NOTE:  every car after 1981 is equipped with computerized engine controls.  ANSED is primarily designed for these vehicles.

    What is the software?

    • The new KANE LIVE software is a great way to connect to a PC via Bluetooth, allowing the user to view readings in “real time” on their PC.
    • All data is viewed either digitally or in graph form so you can easily track parameters over time as they change. If required, the live data can be saved and stored on your PC as a .CSV file which is the standard file for importing/exporting data.
    • Other features could include:
      • Printing
      • Update user details
      • Toggle pump on/off
      • Save and download data
      • Customized graphing

    What kind of maintenance should I expect to perform in normal day-to-day operation of the KANE Gas Analyzer?

    • The two most important maintenance items for the user to perform:
      • Check filters are clean and the water trop is empty before use.
      • Ensure the analyzer is purged with fresh air after every use.
      • Check that the batteries have enough charge to complete the test.
      • Replace the filters when they are restricted – or on a monthly basis.

    Can water damage my analyzer?

    • Yes, if water is sucked into the analyzer the inlet to the oxygen sensor can become blocked and it stops working. It will then display "-----" O2. Water can also damage the CO sensor.  If you experience this condition, it may be possible to rectify the problem yourself. Leave the instrument in a warm place for a few hours with the pump running. This may dry out the oxygen sensor enough to get a reading.

    I've had my analyzer for a couple of years - I have hardly used it and now it doesn't work - why?

    • The reason the Gas Analyzer has failed may be because the sensors have become exhausted; the electro-chemical sensors have an operational life.  The batteries may also be at a low voltage even if the unit has not been turned on, this is due to the internal memory and clock being powered all the time and most common batteries self-discharge over time, lead acid batteries in particular.

    How long should the sensors and other parts last in normal use?

    • Items like the pump and water trap could easily last up to 4+ years, as long as the daily maintenance procedures of removing water from the water trap and changing the filters as needed.  
    • The Battery, Oxygen Sensor and NOX Sensor each have a more limited lifespan that is dependent upon usage.  Most users can expect about 18 months use before a replacement is required.  The typical life of a NOX Sensor is often about 2 years.

    What can I do to extend the useful life of the Oxygen and NOX Sensors?

    • There are several things you can do that make a big difference in the life of the sensors:
      • Keep the water trap drained and never leave the probe on the garage floor where it may pick up water/antifreeze/oil/dirt or other debris.  
      • Shut the pump off when not in use.
      • Use your analyzer frequently!  The more you use the analyzer, the longer the life of the Oxygen sensor as it degrades over time in the presence of oxygen – and there should be little to no oxygen in the tailpipe sample of a running vehicle

    Why shouldn't I replace my own sensors?

    • As with all safety related products, there is a need to demonstrate the traceability of a product's calibration to National Standards and where appropriate to comply with IS09000 protocols. This can only be accomplished using 'live' traceable calibration gasses in accordance with manufacturing specifications and often requiring the use of bespoke test and calibration equipment.

    Why do I need to send the unit in for Calibration and Service?

    • The unit is designed to perform a calibration check and automatic zero procedure at pre-determined times to ensure accuracy. During the Calibration and Service performed at an approved service center, all components are tested and adjusted to ensure that flow rates and sensors have the proper settings to allow this procedure to take place. As certain sensors age, the service center can make adjustments to bring those sensors back into the center of the calibration range, often extending their useful life and accuracy.

    What is the Calibration and Service for the Gas Analyzer?

    • The unit is designed to perform a calibration check and automatic zero procedure at pre-determined times to ensure accuracy.  During the annual calibration performed at an approved service center, all components are tested and adjusted to ensure that flow rates and sensors have the proper settings to allow this procedure to take place.  As certain sensors age, the service center can make adjustments to bring those sensors back into the center of the calibration range, often extending their useful life and accuracy.

    A flexible Video Scope or Video Borescope is an advanced type of borescope that houses a very small image sensor embedded into the tip of the scope. The video image is relayed from the distal tip and focusable lens assembly back to the display via internal wiring. This is unlike a traditional rigid borescope and flexible fiberscope. Rigid borescopes use hard optical relay components to transfer the image from the tip to an eyepiece and flexible fiberscopes use coherent image fiber optics to relay the image to one's eye through an eyepiece. The image quality of a videoscope is superior to that of a fiberscope and can be compared to that of an intermediate camcorder.

    They work complementary. 

    The scan tool will use the vehicle’s sensor to let you know the pressures but these sensors, the wiring harness or the actuator can be faulty! 

    The HU35025 uses its proprietary, so that you know for sure that the particular test you’re doing on the vehicle is accurate. 

    With the HU35025, not only can you measure the real and accurate pressure in the system, but you can even compare the results with the diagnostic tool to know if the vehicle’s sensor has a problem. 

    Language can be chosen between English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.

    Yes, it is, and was designed to be very user friendly.

    • Gasoline and Diesel compression
    • DEF (ADblue) pressure
    • Oil pressure
    • Turbo pressure
    • Cooling system pressure
    • Fuel low pressure
    • Vacuum pressure
    • Particle Filter pressure
    • Optional – Fuel high pressure

    This single innovative adaptor, will fit diesel common rail engines for European cars, as well as Chevy/GMC Duramax (2011 and up), Dodge Cummins (2014 and up), and Ford Powerstroke 6.7L (2011 and up).

    Those adaptors allow you to take the measurements using the OEM-style quick couplers. Disconnect the line on the vehicle, place the “T+ Adaptor in between, and take the measurement. It’s that simple, and no modification is needed to the car.

    They are very flexible, which makes them usable in any situation. 

    Yes, it is. The tool is continuously improved, and options are added. When that happens, when connecting the main screen system to your PC, the software will tell you there’s an update available and how to «inject it» in the tool. 

    One is a vacuum and low-pressure sensor, and the other one is a high-pressure sensor. The main screen system will advise you as to which sensor to use prior to making any test. 

    • es. Each mode has a «save» option.  Download the free PC software (link in the last page of the user’s manual). Make a test, save it, connect the tablet to your computer using the included cable and there you have the result that you can print or share or download as PDF. 

    A 2000 bars sensor with measuring block, 2 high-pressure hoses (M12x150), and a diesel retrieving reservoir. 

    As outline in the user manual, when only using one hose from the pump sensor, you are testing the full pressure of the pump. The engine will not run since there is no fuel to the engine. It will be a very high pressure. 


    Learn what you can measure with Hubitools


    You can also measure the engine running pressure, by connecting the 2nd hose from the sensor block to the common rail. Now the engine has fuel and will run. The pressure will be much lower.


    Hubitoools screen software




    You will be able to see if both pressures are good.  Please refer to the OEM’s data.

    To know if it is the sensor, or the wiring harness or the actuator is faulty

    • Any voltage, any frequency, any resistance desired 

    • Remove the original sensor on the vehicle, connect the sensor simulator, then chose the right mode. 
    • By generating a signal that is the same as what the sensor is supposed to emmit (both Voltage and frequency) the car will recognise the signal and translate it to be read on the diagnostic tool 
    • For example, when making an ABS test, the signal sent will be read as a MPH data on the diagnostic tool. Well… If you have that info on the OBD tool, that will mean the wiring harness and actuators are fine => The sensor of the car is faulty. If you don’t have that info, that means there is a signal loss somewhere. Now starts the search for this signal loss along the wiring harness using the Scope+. 

    Our tool has preset modes (in the menu «sensor simulator») to avoid any vehicle damage. In these modes, you cannot control the voltage, only the frequency. Thus, there is no risk to the vehicle’s expensive components. 

    Other tools on the market don’t have these preset modes. BE CAREFUL if you have one of those units!!! 

    If you don’t find the right mode for the test you want to do, there is a fully manual mode in which you’ll be able to set the signal as you wish (both voltage and frequency). When doing that, MAKE SURE you’re setting the right signal for your application. The tool will warn you about this when selecting the manual mode, which is called «oscilloscope» mode. 

    • Specially designed for vehicles, it will measure: 
    • Amps draw without removing the fuses (Mini, ATC or Maxi) from the Fuse Box
    • Voltage (max. 50VDC)
    • Cranking volts with auto HOLD function
    • Resistance [Ohms] (from 0.0 Ω up to 1.0 MΩ)
    • Frequency with peak to peak volts (up to 20 kHz)
    • Duty cycle (%)
    • Continuity test + Diode/ LED test

    No. It was designed to be as user’s friendly as possible and as accessible to non-electrical experts as possible. It even has color coded screens (red, orange, green) to let you know if for example, your battery is still good or not. 

    It’s in your hand!  You will have all the information you need and will be able to measure anything a regular oscilloscope will measure.

    YES! The Sensor Simulator will emit a signal. If the signal gets lost somewhere on the vehicle, the SCOPE+ is the perfect reader for wiring harness troubleshooting! 

    The SCOPE+ is designed to be used on vehicles. This means it has special mode solely for vehicles, such as cranking volt test or alternator test. 

    It is also able to read the frequency and the voltage at the same time, which is needed to work on vehicles and is not possible with a regular multimeter.
