Autel PS100 PowerScan Electrical System Diagnosis Tool
Performs every type of service including power injection, measurement, ground testing, polarity checks, continuity testing and components activation
Easy to read AVOmeter allows you to read voltage, current and resistance at the fingertip
With a flip of the power switch, you have an instant hot/ground lead for powering up electrical components like cooling fans, relays, etc.
Simultaneously uses the hot lead and the ground lead to activate components right in your hand
Instantly identifies positive, negative and open circuits
Tests for bad ground contacts instantly, allowing you to follow and locate shorts fast without wasting fuses
Instantly checks continuity of switches, relays and diodes
Circuit breaker protected
Built-in Flashlight enables you to work in the dark
Audio tone indicator allows for no-look menu scrolling once users are familiar with menu tone assignment

Autel PowerScan PS100 Description:
①Probe Tip–Contacts the circuit or component to be tested.
②Head Lights –Illuminates dark work areas or work areas at night. .
③Red/Green Polarity Indicator–Identifies positive, negative or open circuits.
The RED Indicator lights when the Probe Tip is contacting a positive circuit. The GREEN Indicator lights when the Probe Tip is contacting a negative circuit.
④LCD Display–Indicates test results.
⑤Circuit Breaker Reset –Resets the tool when the Circuit Breaker is tripped。
⑥Power Switch–Allows you to conduct a positive or negative battery current to the tip for activating and testing the function of electrical components.
⑦Mode Button–Selects the work mode:AC voltage,DC voltage, resistance, tone.
⑧Speaker–When the audio tone is turned on, a beep will be heard.
⑨Auxiliary Ground Lead–Assists test as a ground lead.
⑩Adaptor –Connects to the battery
There are four modes to diagnose the electrical systems, which can be accessed by depressing the Mode Button and cycling through each
While the tool in this mode, contact the probe tip to a circuit, then the LCD display will read the DC voltage with a resolution of 0.1 volt.
While the tool in this mode, contact the probe tip to a circuit, then the LCD display will read the Max. voltage, the Min. voltage, frequency and duty cycle.
While the tool in this mode, contact the probe tip to a circuit, then the LCD display will read the resistance between the tip and auxiliary ground lead.
While the tool in this mode, just do a quick press of the mode button to toggle the tone on or off. While quickly pressing (a quick press and release) the mode button, if a short high beep is heard, this means the audio tone is turned on. If a short low beep is heard, the audio tone is turned off.
This function is invaluable when working in bright areas where LED illumination alone is not sufficient. The audio feature may be disengaged when desired, such as for applications where the tool will be connected to circuits for long periods of time and the audio could become annoying.

1.Is the PowerScan Probe Tester computer and air bag safe?
The tool LED and LCD pull no more than 1 milliamp of current,therefore when using it as a test light or multimeter it is computer and airbag safe. However, pressing the power switch is a different story. When you press the switch forward, you are conducting full battery current to the tip of the probe. There is a nice safety feature built into the tool. Simply connect the extra ground lead to the tool and press the power switch forward until it trips the circuit breaker.This will prevent power from going to the tip but still allow you to use the tool as a multimeter. When you are away from computer components, simple press the reset button and you are ready to power up again.
2.Why do I have no power at the tip when I am pressing the power switch forward but the red LED is on?
The power switch goes through a lot. It is one of the few things that go wrong with the tool. The switch is a consumable that needs to be replaced on occasion. We have made it real simple to not only change it but also buy a new switch. The switch can be snapped out and replaced in seconds. You can buy switches from your Autel authorized tool supplier. The tool with the Rocker Switch slots makes it easy to replace a worn switch in the field without having to send it in for repair.

I have never been so impressed by such a reasonably priced tool. A friend of mine bought a similar "powered probe" device, and I was impressed. I bought this one because the point oscilloscope feature seemed useful. I made the right call.
This thing is unbelievably helpful for any sort of automotive electronic testing. Need to figure out why a light isn't on? Put 12v to the bulb holder and check it. Need to see if a switch is working? Point this at the back of it, and flip the switch. Need to figure out why a trailer light isn't working? This thing has a wicked long cable extension to reach way back to the trailer. Need to troubleshoot a wiring loom under the car? Not only will this do the job, but it has a decent LED light.
Seriously, buy this PowerScan PS100 tool. It comes in a nice case, with the pieces you need. It pays for itself before the mechanic has even diagnosed the problem, and will help you figure out if your weird jury-rigged solution will work before you put everything back together. I feel like I should write the engineers a check because I've gotten so much use out of it.

I am an automotive tech by trade and bought this to use in troubleshooting electrical shorts in automobiles. I have used the power probe in the past but the Autel has one particular feature I was interested in. This has a kinda scope feature that can really be useful when troubleshooting sensors on the fly along with a very bright and easy to read screen as well as a ohm meter it had me curious as to how good it is. So far it has been very useful and works well, I don't need a separate meter for certain testing and it has been accurate in testing. I did find a strange operation about it though. When probing a circuit that lets say has ground to it then when activated goes hot , the PS100 shows the circuit go to hot (12volt) but also shows ground as well. Pretty strange but idk if it made to do so. The tool itself seems well built but the cable to me seems a little thin and not as thick if a gauge as the power probe. All in all I think it's a great tool for the features and price point, I only hope it lasts just as long as I expect or will it fail too soon. I will update in the future as to its durability and operation.
