When diagnosing electrical and mechanical faults on any vehicle the use of an oscilloscope can give the technician a much better understanding of what is actually happening in a system. On completion of the course you will be con dent in using an oscilloscope when fault finding and be able to use captured waveforms to prove where a fault lies.
AudienceTechnicians looking to get more from the use of an oscilloscope in day to day fault diagnostics.
Skill levelService, Repair or Diagnostic Technician.
PrerequisitesA good understanding of and some experience with fault nding on modern vehicle electrical and electronic systems. It is recommended to have completed OS1 or both VE1 and VE2.
This course includes:
- An overview of the oscilloscopes functions and uses.
- Analysing a wide range of waveforms to confirm faults or correct operation.
- Utilising measurement functions (maths channels) to manipulate waveforms and perform a quicker diagnosis.
- Learning new ways to approach a fault to increase first time fix rate.
