Primarily used for balancing of propshafts (drive shafts), this kit also supports frequency measurement of other rotating items.

For the 4225A and 4425A Automotive PicoScopes

SKU: pp991-1 Category:


Optical carry cases are backordered with no ETA. We can ship without the case and ship the case when available.

The PQ316 kit includes the high-quality TA497 PicoBNC+ optical sensor that connects directly to your PicoScope, and a robust magnetic mount to ensure it is held in the correct position. When compared to its BNC equipped counterpart (using the TA186 optical sensor), the TA497 optical sensor has several ease-of-use benefits: It does not need to be set up in the software, as it is automatically configured. It does not have any batteries that need changing, as it is powered by the scope. Furthermore, an interface box is not required as the sensor connects directly to the oscilloscope so it is, therefore, always ready for use.

Together with an NVH kit, this system brings the technician a level of capability previously only available in the vehicle manufacturer’s factory or via expensive and dedicated repair facilities. All of this is supported by our ongoing software updates, which will continue to improve the system long after an initial purchase.
