Contribute to our Automotive Waveform Library

If you use our Automotive Diagnostic Kits or Automotive Oscilloscopes, you probably know that we have a collection of waveforms on our website, available free of charge to all visitors.

We are constantly updating this collection to make it more valuable to you, but we need your help to cover the huge range of vehicles and engine management systems in use around the world. If you have captured any interesting waveforms, particularly if they show real-world faults, please share them with us by emailing your .PSD files, with a short explanation, to: tech@picotech.com

How Good is our Foreign-language Documentation?

Do you use the foreign-language versions of our software and manuals? If so, we would be very interested to hear from you. We have thousands of pages of documentation translated from English, and minor errors sometimes occur, especially in technical terminology. We know that even small mistakes can be confusing or frustrating, so please tell us if you find any.

WEEE and RoHS Statement

Our products (oscilloscopes and data loggers) fall into category 9 of the European “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment” (WEEE) directive. We plan to label them to comply with the WEEE directive in time for the August 2005 deadline.

Our products, like those of all test equipment manufacturers, are exempt from "The Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2004" (RoHS) directive, but this exemption may be revoked in the future. We will continue to work towards the RoHS directive by removing lead from our products wherever possible.
