High Resolution and Accuracy
The 2-channel PicoScope 4224 is a high-resolution oscilloscope that is suitable for general, scientific and field-service use. With 12-bit resolution (adjustable up to 16 bits in enhanced resolution mode) and 1% accuracy they also make an excellent choice for noise, vibration and mechanical analysis.
Now you can measure everything
from small signals to large voltages
The PicoScope 4000 Series IEPE scope has an input range of ±50 mV to ±20V so you can measure small signals from sensors as well as higher voltages from power supply circuits and motor drives (using an attenuator).
The convenience and speed you need
Your PicoScope 4000 Series scope is powered from the USB 2.0 interface, so there’s no need for you to carry an external power supply or batteries with you. The USB port also delivers high-speed data to your PC to give you a responsive, high-resolution display. With 80 MS/s real-time sampling, the 4000 Series are one of the fastest USB-powered 12-bit scopes available.
Deep memory without compromising performance
Thanks to the advanced 32 megasample buffer which is ‘always on’, there is never a compromise between buffer size and performance. The PicoScope 4000 Series always maximises both the buffer size and display update rate at the same time. Now you can easily capture every detail of every waveform without compromising the performance of your scope.
An IEPE oscilloscope that you can afford
Normally if you want to use sensors you either need to buy an expensive oscilloscope with an IEPE interface, or an equally expensive add-on module. Not anymore. As it features an integrated IEPE interface making it compatible with industry-standard IEPE accelerometers and microphones.
Your powerful high-resolution oscilloscope
With both 2 channels, 20 MHz analogue bandwidth, 80 MS/s real-time sampling, 12-16 bits resolution, 1% accuracy and a wide input range, a PicoScope 4000 Series USB scope is the powerful high-resolution oscilloscope that will fulfill your needs.

You can’t usually upgrade traditional test equipment. If the device is upgradable it will often need a time-consuming and expensive trip back to the manufacturer. PicoScope software is regularly updated with feature extensions and improvements. These can be downloaded for free from our website and ensure that your oscilloscope will always have the latest features and enhancements. What other test equipment gets more powerful with age?
Easy to use
PicoScope 6 is powerful yet easy to operate. You benefit from the power of
the PC, and the familiar Windows
interface and controls, making the software easy to use. It has tooltips and help pages to explain all the features.
PicoScope uses the latest Windows technologies to give you the performance you need. Fast capture rates make it easier for you to see fast-moving signals, while fast data processing ensures your
PC is able to process even the most complex of waveforms.
Start PicoScope, click Auto setup and your PC is transformed into a powerful oscilloscope with the timebase and triggering already set up.
Click Persistence mode and you can emulate the phosphor display of a conventional analog scope – useful for displaying complex analog signals and spotting glitches. Click Spectrum mode and your PC becomes an spectrum analyzer. And there’s more…
Using the automated measurements feature in PicoScope you can automatically measure everything from peak-to-peak voltage, to rise time and signal-to-noise ratio – turning your PicoScope 4000 Series into a multimeter.
“But my multimeter can measure resistance!” So can your PicoScope! Measure the voltage using one channel of your scope, the current using another channel then use the built-in math functions to automatically display the resistance.

PicoScope Future Proof!
The recently introduced two-channel PicoScope 4225 and four-channel PicoScope 4425 are our 5th generation of automotive PC oscilloscopes. They are 5x faster and have 8x more memory than the previous generation, ensuring they are powerful enough for the next generation of vehicles with new technologies such as CAN FD.
Other innovations include new floating inputs for non-grounded measurements, higher input ranges and ConnectDetect to ensure you have a good connection. The new PicoScopes are also now USB 3.0 connected and powered.
When you purchase any diagnostic tool you not only spend money but you also spend time learning how best to use it. We protect that investment in two ways. First, we develop hardware and software that is easy to use for those starting out with oscilloscopes yet has the power and features demanded by experienced users. Second, we do not compromise on quality or specifications - expect the PicoScope you buy today to still be an essential part of your diagnostic tool box 10 years from now.
