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.
|Audience||Technicians looking to get more from the use of an oscilloscope in day to day fault diagnostics.|
|Skill Level||Service, Repair or Diagnostic Technician.|
|Guidance||A 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.|
- 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.
