Nicholson Pulse Sensor
Feb 6th, 2020 at 3:00pm
 
Autonerdz is now offering the Nicholson Pulse Sensor in our store!
https://www.autonerdz.com/nicholsonsensor.html

This is a Dual Pulse Sensor Kit. It comes with (2) Nicholson Pulse Sensors, (2) 5m BNC to BNC Cables, (6) barbed fittings (3 different sizes, one for each sensor), (2) Foster quick couplers so you can use your WPS accessories, and a carry case!

We also have a protective cloth boot with a grommet that will help cushion vibration and allows you to hang the sensor. You can see the boot at the bottom of the page I linked.


A BIG thank you to Michael Nicholson for working with us and allowing Autonerdz to supply these awesome sensors!

We no longer supply the FLS. We have been unable to obtain them from the manufacturer for approx. 6 months or so.

The Nicholson Sensor is every bit as capable as the FLS, and is manufactured about 30 minutes from the Autonerdz office.

First image, CH A is the FLS, CH C is the Nicholson Sensor.
2nd image, CH C is scaled to x3, and is identical to the FLS.

So I suppose FLS is failing. Am I correct?

Looks like a lot of techs on another forum have good things to say about the Nicholson sensors. Your kit is a heck of a good price compared to FirstLook, and there are two senosrs in the kit. This is on my tool wish list now (along with a lot of other tools)† Grin

Here is the story...

As with Pico automotive, we were also on the ground floor introducing the FLS from Senx.† In fact, I acted as a marketing consultant before it was released and even shared with them uses for the FLS that they were not aware of.

So, we had a long relationship with Fred and John at Senx for many years.

As you know we are very loyal to our customers and vendors alike.† We don't sell Chinese clones of PicoScope like some other vendors do, or any other scopes.

So what happened with Senx is that over six months ago, we became unable to communicate with anyone at Senx.

Open orders were unfulfilled.

A partial shipment we received was missing components.

Multiple emails were not responded to.

No one answered the phone.

Multiple messages were not returned.

To this day, not one phone call from them in over six months.

Google maps showed their location permanently closed.

Their web site was infected with malware and redirected to some shoe store.

In view of the above facts, we came to the logical conclusion that Senx was no longer in business and it was time to introduce a new and different product to fill that hole in our web store with the permanent out of stock message.

After working with the creator of the Nicholson Delta Pressure Sensor and putting it through the paces, we concluded that this was a great product and began offering them.

Very recently, we have found that Senx is actually still in business.

Not wanting to step on their toes, we stopped offering the Nicholson Sensor.

We still have no plans to offer the FLS again at this time.† We still cannot obtain them because no one at Senx responds to us.†

When you stop taking care of the customer, they stop bugging you.† We stopped bugging them.

You can probably still get the Nicholson Sensor, just not from us.

It is a shame to not have an option for absolute pressure testing available from your site anymore. Are ya'll planning on selling either of these options or some other variant in the near future?

It is a sad thing.  But no.  No plans currently to get into offering any of these.  Unfortunate that Senx dropped the ball or we would still be offering the FLS...

Hi....I made some home form ones genuine McGyver stuff I arrived at the resolution the actual development of the sensor immensely affects the sign, it is touchy to the degree I don't figure two indistinguishable sensors from a similar maker will give the precisely same waveform. In the end I purchased a Ditex sensor however haven't utilized it much.
