DG Diagnostics...Now a single application for managing vehicle diagnostic repairs on Class 1 through Class 8 Vehicles

 

 

Our customers have been asking for a simple diagnostics application that will work with their DPA "right-out-of-the-box" to display faults, component information and basic vehicle parameters from the J1708/J1587 and CAN/J1939 data buses. DG Technologies has answered the call and is providing these features in an application called "DG Diagnostics".

 

DG Diagnostics is a great screening/triage tool and is provided free-of-charge with the purchase of any DPA product. DG Diagnostics works with all DPA adapters past and present, and may reduce your need to purchase full-featured OEM software.

DG Diagnostics software provides vehicle support for OEM manufacturers. DG's software can access vehicle networks to read basic diagnostic trouble codes and monitor live traffic on many OEM agricultural vehicles such as IVECO*, Hino*, Izuzu*, Kabota*, John Deere* and CNH*.

*DG Technologies' DPA hardware does not necessarily support all OEM software programs

Take your DPA straight from the box and start generating ROI with some of these features:

  • Read and display J1587 and J1939 faults in "text" form. Request clear of inactive J1587 and J1939 faults.
  • Display "total-vehicle" and "trip data" such as odometer, engine hours, and fuel economy from the J1587 and J1939 data buses.
  • Create a viewable/printable/saveable vehicle report in HTML format showing all information that has been captured.
  • Display common "dashboard" parameters such as RPM, temperatures and pressures from the J1587 and J1939 data buses.
  • Request reset of J1939 trip information (trip odometer, trip miles, trip fuel, etc).
  • Display J1587 and J1939 ECM component information such as VIN, Make, Model, Serial, and Unit Numbers.
  • Record data bus data for engineering analysis as well as play that data back internally through the program or externally to the data bus.
  • Configure and launch OEM applications directly without having to navigate through the Windows Start Menu.

NEW OBDII DG Diagnostics

DG Diagnostics unleashes OBDII diagnostic functionality for light and medium-duty vehicles.
The new light duty functionality allows technicians to quickly access all emissions-related vehicle information on all light and medium-duty vehicles with an OBDII connector without the need for additional and expensive software. It provides all emissions-related DTC information, parameters, and monitors based on the SAE J1979 and SAE J2012 standards.

The OBDII functionality allows service bay technicians to quickly diagnose vehicle health issues and provides reporting capability for communicating with the customer in a timely fashion.

 

Generic Diagnostic Applications Provide:
