About Automotive Scope
A breakout box, exhaust analyzer, scan tool, digital multimeter, and engine analyzer all line the shelves of your personal mechanic shop, but you have yet to add an automotive scope to the lineup. This tool, also known as a digital storage oscilloscope, allows you to view changes in voltage over time for different pieces of equipment throughout your vehicle, helping you determine where problems are located in the car's systems even if an error code is not present. The results of the scope are displayed as wavelengths on the tool's screen, so once you understand what to look for, you can easily diagnose where the issue is located in the system. Model capabilities vary, so when choosing the right scope for your shop, you want to find a model that is compatible with your existing equipment. For example, most scopes contain software that communicates with your computer, and some models are only compatible with Windows-based operating systems. It is important to ensure the software will work with your computer. An automotive scope can change the way you find and solve your vehicle's issues, and when you are ready to buy, the large selection available from sellers on eBay makes it easy to find the right one for your needs.
