With high bandwidth and fault-protection, the 10:1 attenuator has been designed to allow fuel injector and primary ignition waveforms to be measured using PicoScope oscilloscopes.

The TA197 is a passive 10:1 attenuator. This means that a 10 V signal at its input will appear as a 1 V signal on the output. The TA197 allows voltages of up to 400 V to be measured.

The TA197 attenuator also increases the input impedance of the oscilloscope from 1 MΩ to 8 MΩ and can also be used when measuring the output of high-impedance sensors such as piezo knock sensors where connecting an automotive scope can attenuate the signal or induce a fault code.

Note : When using a PicoScope 4225 or 4425 oscilloscope the attenuator is not normally needed for measuring injectors as the voltage spike is usually under 200 V.  It will be required however when using older generations of PicoScopes which only measure to 50 V or 100 V.  The 10:1 attenuator is an improved version of the 20:1 attenuator previously available from Pico.

Specifications

Attenuation 10:1
Input impedance 8 MΩ 
Input capacitance 27 pF
Bandwidth 20 MHz

(–3 dB)
Max. input 400 V

 

This high-quality general purpose oscilloscope probe has a 60 MHz bandwidth. A two-position slide switch allows attenuation of either x1 or x10 to be selected.

This probe is particularly useful if you want to probe CAN bus and FlexRay signals.

Our premium leads are color-coded so that the color of the lead in the engine bay matches the color of the on-screen waveform in PicoScope Automotive – never again will you waste your time wondering which lead is which.

Our premium leads are fully screened to minimize noise pickup so you can have complete confidence in the signal that you are measuring.

The 5 m leads come with fixed 2.5 m ground extensions and are designed for working on larger vehicles.

  • 3 m or 5 m long
  • Fully shielded
  • Insulated BNC at scope connection
  • Shrouded/stacking banana plugs
