Use the AES Trigger Pickup to sync your MODIS, VERUS, or Vantage Pro scope display to an ignition event. When attached to a plug wire, the AES Trigger Pickup will shape the signal into a clean pulse that your scope can use as a trigger.
Displaying a trigger signal on the screen is a very powerful aid for signal analysis, whether you need to judge the relationship of a signal to a position of the crank shaft or to an ignition event, or simply, just to hold/stabliize a repetitive signal. The pulse produced by the trigger pickup makes this possible.
