PicoBNC+ Optical Balancing Kit, Accessory for NVH Kits

Pico NVH kits reveal vibrations related to engine (RPM), propshaft and road speed that can be caused by imbalance of rotating components, or other factors. The PicoBNC+ optical kit can be partnered with an NVH kit and a PicoBNC+ Automotive PicoScope to help users remove propshaft (drive shaft) vibrations; in these cases, it can be much faster and less expensive to rebalance the propshaft than to remove and replace it. The PicoBNC+ optical sensor kit can also support speed measurement of other rotating items.

Propshaft balancing is achieved in conjunction with our PicoDiagnostics software, which takes users through a guided process to help them quickly identify and correct imbalance. The software supports balancing using the pinion flange method (adding weights to existing holes in the flange), and the hose clamp method (clamping weights to the shaft using jubilee clips). In either case, the software provides the user with the weight and location necessary to balance the shaft, removing the need for guesswork.

The PQ316 kit includes the high-quality TA497 PicoBNC+ optical sensor that connects directly to your PicoScope, and a robust magnetic mount to ensure it is held in the correct position. When compared to its BNC equipped counterpart (using the TA186 optical sensor), the TA497 optical sensor has several ease-of-use benefits: It does not need to be set up in the software, as it is automatically configured. It does not have any batteries that need changing, as it is powered by the scope. Furthermore, an interface box is not required as the sensor connects directly to the oscilloscope so it is, therefore, always ready for use.

The PQ316 kit will not replace the PP991 kit (without BNC+ connection), so that users with standard BNC equipped oscilloscopes will still have an optical sensor option.

Together with an NVH kit, this system brings the technician a level of capability previously only available in the vehicle manufacturer's factory or via expensive and dedicated repair facilities. All of this is supported by our ongoing software updates, which will continue to improve the system long after an initial purchase.
