Inches of water
my question was what does a good reading of inches of water on the scope. I've seen some say the wps but I can't seem to figure that out. I assumed you can make a custom probe on the pico, but what's the conversion, volts=inches of water. Or just keep practicing trial and error.
Thanks had no idea my question never uploaded.
I’ll see if I can try it out tomorrow and compare to my manometer.
The WPS will read pressure of roughly 2:1 where -1psi=2 inches of mercury. The conversion for inches of mercury to inches of water is 13.6:1. So for quick conversations multiply scope pressure measurements by 2 to get inches of mercury and then multiply that measurement by 13.6 to convert to inches of water.
Yea that's what I figured, but I have seen screenshots of inches of water as the display.
I use a manometer that measures inches of water. Most crankcase systems on euro run 5-7 inches of water but some bmw are higher. If you approach a psi reading like on a vacuum gauge that reads mercury then you have diaphragm ruptured or such which will impact many systems,fuel trim,map readings etc. If you have alldata you can find several bulletins and charts on bmw that will help guide you. I…
Yea I'm not sure I would ever really run into an issue of, thisis the test I need. But if i would it would be nice to have
Sorry,did not read careful enough.You were asking about displaying on scope.
Sean, this post explains why you see screenshots with inches of water sometimes: diag.net/msg/m2r7j23n2e… However, as a math guy, I can’t recommend juggling multiple units of measurement for the same thing (pressure) inside scope software, so I’m uncomfortable with describing how to create such custom probes...
