Leverage the power of pressure transducers to take your lab scope "inside" the engine.
This manual includes 357 color pages of class slides and notes from Brandon Steckler's popular transducer class: Pressure Waveform Acquisition and Analysis from the Inside Out. He has presented this 8-hour class throughout the USA and UK.
Grab this book and get "inside" the engine with Brandon as you watch a condensed version of his class that was recorded for CTI (Carquest Technical Institute) with Brin Kline and Adam Robertson. A link to this hour long video will be emailed after the purchase of the manual.
List of topics touched on in the manual and covered in the 8-hour class:
• Why is it a vital to learn to use a pressure transducer?
• What can pressure transducers do for us?
• What is a pressure transducer?
• What is the difference between absolute and delta transducers?
• What is In-cylinder compression waveform analysis?
• How do I use a Piston Chart?
• What is tailpipe waveform pulse analysis?
• What is Crankcase/cooling system pulse analysis?
• Why is Data Storage important?
• What is the importance of networking?
…and also includes 14 real world case studies with specifics of root cause analysis demonstrate Brandon's logic and strategy.
