Pico’s universal 6-way breakout leads are designed to work with any vehicle — eliminating the need to own many specific breakout leads for engine diagnostics.
Designed to save you time and money
Pico’s universal 6-way breakout leads eliminate the need to own many specific breakout leads for engine diagnostics. The breakout leads are available with 3 different sizes of connectors allowing you to connect to virtually any sensor in the engine compartment — of any vehicle — using just 3 leads. Never again will you need to search your workshop for that expensive vehicle/sensor specific lead.
Easy to use
The breakout lead is simply connected into the existing cable loom and enables voltage readings to be taken from the numerous sensors in the engine compartment. The output signal can then be taken from the 4 mm banana plugs into the input of the automotive oscilloscope using the TA000 test lead.
Note: a TA000 will be required to convert the 4 mm banana plug connection on the Pico 6-way breakout lead into a BNC connector suitable for plugging into the PicoScope.
Please read these instructions before using the breakout lead. Pico Technology takes no responsibility for any damage caused through incorrect use. These leads are designed to be used by experienced/professional automotive vehicle technicians who understand the implications of incorrect use.
It may be possible to cause a short circuit to the oscilloscope unit if incorrect connections are made! A short circuit could seriously damage the unit and will require it to be repaired at the customer’s own cost.
It is recommended that the oscilloscope always has an earth (ground) connection to the unit on one of the channels. The remaining BNC connection(s) can then be used to probe the breakout lead, using a TA000 automotive test lead.
