Made in Holland:
The HS6 DIFF 4 channel oscilloscope, by far the most advanced scope on the market with user friendly set up.
When a scan tool has indicated an area of trouble or when the scan tool does not give you any answers a Scope needs to be used to measure the signals produced by the sensors/ actuators. and allows you to look into the system at a completely different level,
Electronic management systems in cars get more and more sophisticated. When these sophisticated systems malfunction, sophisticated measuring equipment is required to locate the cause of the problem.
This unit comes with Atis pro software, Which has a database with more than 260 automotive components with more than 900 diagnostic measurements, more generic guided tests and preset screens than any other scope on the market,
And also has detailed vehicle specific info, allowing you to search by specific vehicle giving you all of the below information on a huge range of vehicles for engine management systems and in some cases ABS and Air con
- Wiring diagrams
- Specific sensor and actuator tests
- Procedures and sample wave forms
- Live connection diagrams
- Component location information with live pictures
- Technical information about the specific item you are testing
- This level of information on a scope has never been available before.
The Atis pro software included in this set also has updates for one year but does not shut down after the 1st year if you do not renew the subscription
Heart of this Kit is the Automotive scope HS6 DIFF automotive oscilloscope. This PC oscilloscope turns your computer into a sophisticated automotive diagnostic system. Equipped with four differential inputs, the Automotive scope HS6 DIFF guarantees measuring multiple signals without the risk of creating short circuits through the oscilloscope. The compact Automotive scope HS6 DIFF is USB powered, which makes it easy to connect it to a laptop computer and perform measurements while driving the vehicle. The large input range, the long memory buffers and high maximum sampling rate make it the possible to capture almost any automotive signal. The built in connection test feature on each channel informs whether the test points have electrical connection to test subject, leaving no doubt whether there is no connection or no signal.
- Up to 1 GS/s sampling speed

- The Handyscope HS6 DIFF can be synchronized with other oscilloscopes using the CMI interface to form a multi channel combined instrument with synchronized time base. The CMI interface is available by default on the Handyscope HS6 DIFF. so with a second HS6 DIFF you can have a 8 channel combined scope
Spectrum analyser and serial/CAN bus pro-tocol analyser
- 1 year warranty as standard on main scope unit and option to buy 5 year warranty for €65.00
The units we stock are the 1G/S and 500MS/S sample rate and come standard with SureConnect and Extended Memory as we believe when you are making a investment like this is better to go the extra cost and get the best spec
But we can supply these units with lower sampling speed starting from €1695 + vat
See pricing above based on sampling speed
What is sampling speed all about
The rate at which samples are taken by the oscilloscope is called the sample frequency, the number of samples per second. A higher sample frequency corresponds to a shorter interval between the samples. As is visible in the picture below, with a higher sample frequency, the original signal can be reconstructed much better from the measured samples
The sample frequency must be higher than 2 times the highest frequency in the input signal. This is called the Nyquist frequency. Theoretically it is possible to reconstruct the input signal with more than 2 samples per period. In practice, at least 10 to 20 samples per period are recommended to be able to examine the signal thoroughly in an oscilloscope. When the sample frequency is not high enough, aliasing will occur.
Automotive Test and Information System
The ATIS-Pro Automotive Test and Information System is a large knowledge base with information on a huge range of electrical and electronic components that are used in the motor management system and ABS system of a car. In an intuitive graphical environment background information on sensors and actuators can be found, as well as detailed schematics, diagnosis instructions, component locations with photographs of most available cars and example signals for proper functioning components. The unique point of ATIS is the direct coupling between the diagnosis instructions with the example signals to the measuring instrument. One click of the mouse in ATIS will launch the automotive measurement software and load the specific settings to measure on the particular component. The mechanic can focus on finding the problem, he does not need to find out how to setup the instrument.
The Automotive Diagnostics Kit is delivered with ATIS-Lite. As an extension to ATIS-Lite, ATIS-Pro can be ordered. ATIS-Pro contains an extensive database with more schematics, connection diagrams and oscilloscope settings with reference signals.
To connect the Automotive scope HS6 DIFF to the automotive circuits, the this Kit contains a set of four special measuring leads. The Measuring Leads are 2 meter long low noise BNC to 4 mm banana measuring leads, specifically designed to be used on differential oscilloscope inputs. The two ends of the Measuring leads with the banana jacks can be placed 1.2 meters apart, without picking up external disturbances. The length of 2 meter allows to connect the instrument to components under the hood while the instrument is located on the passenger seat, making it possible to perform measurement while driving. The measuring lead is made of silicone, making it heat resistant and oil resistant, perfectly suitable for automotive applications. The 4 mm banana jacks make it possible to connect a variety of test points or clamps.
This Kit contains a set of back probes. These thin and flexible measuring probes fit on any test lead with 4 mm banana jacks and make it possible to connect to hard to reach places. They allow to back probe wires in connectors, without breaking the circuit, without the need of break out boxes and without damaging the wire isolation. The set contains 8 probes, four black ones, a red, a yellow, a green and a blue one, matching the input channel colour coding of the Automotive scope.
Ignition pickups (Not included in this set but can be added at any time)
To measure secondary ignition signals, the Ignition Pickup Set is added to the Kit. Simply clamp the Ignition Pickup Set around a spark plug cable and measure the secondary ignition signals, both from normal ignition systems and DIS ignition systems. The Automotive Diagnostics Kit contains two pickups. (see optional COP testing adaptor)
To measure large currents, like e.g. starting currents, a current clamp CC-600 is included in this Kit. The Current clamp CC-600 makes it possible to measure current with your automotive oscilloscope, without the need of breaking the circuit. Simply clamp the Current clamp CC-600 around the wire and measure the current, up to 600 A. Current measurements can reveal problems that with a voltage pattern remain hidden, like e.g. compression problems that are visible in the starting current.
Many components draw far less than 600 A, making the 80 A current clamp CC-80 a more suitable current clamp which is included in this kit. It will measure up to 80 A, giving a much higher accuracy at low currents than the Current clamp CC-600. Use it to reveal problems in driving injectors, measuring leakage currents etc.
Accelerometer and manual trigger button (Not included in this set but can be added at any time)
The dual accelerometer measures accelerations up to 2 g in two planes. It can be used to measure vibrations in mechanical systems, but is can also be used to determine the maximum power of an engine, without the need of expensive equipment. Attach the acceleration sensor to the floor of the car and accelerate at full power. Using the weight of the car and the measured signal, the power can then be calculated by the software.
The manual trigger button can be used to trigger the automotive oscilloscope when the input signals are unknown. Connect the automotive oscilloscope to the sensors you want to check and start driving the car. As soon as the problem occurs, e.g. the engine holding back, press the manual trigger button. The automotive oscilloscope will now measure the signals and store them. Since the oscilloscope can store the signals before pressing the trigger button, later examination of the signals will show how the problem developed.
The manual trigger button can be used independently from the accelerometer.
The 80 Volt full scale input range of the Automotive scope HS6 DIFF makes it possible to measure almost any automotive signal. In case the voltage exceeds 80 Volt, the Differential attenuator can be used. This special differential attenuator attenuates the input signal by a factor 10 and allows inputs up to 300 volts, It can be used when measuring e.g. primary ignition signals or fuel injector signals. This Kit contains a Differential attenuator for each channel.
