Saelig Introduces Pico Technology Engine and Hydraulics Kit
|PQ117 Engine & Hydraulics Kit|
Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the Pico Technology Engine and Hydraulics Kit - designed for diagnosing problems on machinery and vehicles from an electrical and pressure-sensing viewpoint. Making real-time measurements of pressures up to 600 bar (8700 psi) enables a technician to view hydraulic performance not previously visible with conventional gauges. Combining a PicoScope 4425 4-channel PC-based automotive oscilloscope kit with PicoScope software and two WPS600C hydraulic pressure transducers, the Engine and Hydraulics Kit provides an unparalleled window into hydraulic system performance in real-time.
This kit combines Pico Technology’s Diesel diagnostics kit with two WPS600C Hydraulic pressure transducers for accurately and quickly diagnosing faults on many types of mobile machinery. PicoScope software has already been chosen by dozens of vehicle and equipment manufacturers because of its unique combination of value, reliability, performance and diagnostic ability. Now, being able to see hydraulic pressure waveforms in the same time frame as engine control signals gives complete visibility of how a system is operating. For example, see the exact moment valves open and move in a hydraulic system, or thoroughly investigate stalling and 'no start' conditions, etc.
PicoScope software provides more than 150 built-in guided tests covering engine and electrical sensors, actuators and systems. These include both voltage and current measurements and cover camshaft, crankshaft, oxygen sensors, injectors and many more. The tests assist in diagnosing engine faults correctly the first time; when combined with sensing hydraulic system activity, they allow diagnosis of the complex interactions of hydraulic and engine systems.
Mobile construction and agricultural machinery is getting ever more complex and more and more machines are moving from mechanical diesel engines to modern high tech common-rail diesels that use electronically controlled direct fuel injection. Hence the complexity of engine control systems has grown exponentially. The challenges that field support technicians face have changed, requiring new skills and tools. With the Pico Technology Engine and Hydraulics Kit, it is now possible to monitor engine speed at the same time as hydraulic system pressures in real-time. This enables technicians to see how engine anti-stall systems operate as hydraulic loads increase. The kit’s WPS600C Pressure Sensors are powered by rechargeable Li-Po batteries and are enclosed in durable housings. They provide high resolution pressure measurements in two temperature-compensated pressure ranges with an ultra-fast, 100 microsecond response - a cost-effective answer to pressure analysis.
Made by Pico Technology, Europe’s award-winning test and measurement manufacturer, the Pico Technology Engine and Hydraulics Kit is available now from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.
