Vehicle diagnostics expert Softing Automotive Electronics GmbH is bundling its expertise with the CAN vehicle interface technology company Kvaser AB. The cooperation has yielded a sturdy plug & play solution for diagnostic tasks in after-sales.

The combination of intuitive diagnostic software from Softing and the high-performance vehicle interface (VCI) from Kvaser is an ideal solution for error localization, repair and commissioning of individual components as well as entire vehicle systems, including electric vehicles and mobile working machinery. The individual after-sales tester Softing TDX.workshop, developed by OEMs and suppliers, supports service technicians in the efficient repair and maintenance of vehicles and their components. The Kvaser U100 fits in perfectly with this, flexibly and intuitively enabling high-performance vehicle communication using CAN and CAN-FD.

The Softing TDX.workshop repair shop tester is addressing the needs of service technicians in repair shops and in the field as well as during commissioning and vehicle testing. It offers a range of diagnostic functions for this purpose, such as:

– Creating vehicle reports

– Reading out and clearing the error memory

– Parameterizing, programming and exchanging ECUs – Displaying measurement values

– Testing actuators

– Running test sequences

– Guided troubleshooting

Additional information, such as repair instructions, exploded drawings, videos and web content, support the user in maintenance and repair of the vehicle or component.

The current version 2.5 of the repair shop tester Softing TDX.workshop already supports Kvaser’s U100 CAN interface. With its reinforced galvanic isolation and a vibration, shock and drop-proof housing compliant with IP67, users now have a combined software and hardware package at their disposal. The solution is ready for immediate use and has no trouble coping with the harshest environmental conditions.
