Cummins releases new telematics app, Inline 7 service tool

Cummins recently introduced two new tech tools, one for subscribers of its telematics service and another for technicians.

The engine maker’s new Connected Diagnostics (CD) app is available on both Apple iOS and Android devices for free to registered users of the telematics service. Cummins says the app is designed to complement its fault monitoring app.

A status page lists all of a customer’s connected equipment organized by the engine system’s current fault code status. Each status tab has a count reference giving a quick glance at overall fleet health.

The app also displays a complete fault notification report including a derate notification banner, prioritized fault codes and the suggested root cause of the fault. It also provides links to information on the nearest Cummins service location and Cummins Care contact information.

You can download the app on your iPhone here and on your Android device here.

Cummins also released INLINE 7, a wired and wireless datalink adapter for technicians.

Cummins says the Inline 7 is the only adapter that offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a wired connection via USB. Heavy Duty Scanner Inline 7 features a faster processor, improved algorithms, larger memory buffers and better filtering than previous models while simultaneously accessing multiple vehicle data channels.

The OBD2 Scanner is designed to work with a wide array of OEM and third-party service and innovation tools and supports three simultaneous CAN connections and 250K, 500K and 1M baud rates. It also supports several other protocols such as J1708, J1587, ISO 15765 and ISO 9141 (K and L lines).

2/use an iso mounter software to mount the SA4.0 image to a virtual drive.
3/browse to the setup file in your virtual drive and run it as administrator
follow the steps (it will prompt for a username and password use those of your windows user account if you’re under 7-8 or 10 windows version)
it will take a while! don’t turn off the computer and don’t worry about the incompatibility messages that windows will show you during the installation process specially for the SQL 2005 server installation.
4/after completing the installation of the SA4.0 reboot the computer and set back the system time to mars 2016.
5/mount the first iso image of the data discs to a virtual drive, browse the sauce folder and run setup file as administrator; wait for it to complete the installation it will launch the SA 4.2.005 at this step you may have a message that the SA 4.2.005 is not capable of launching the search engine don’t worry close it and go to task manager (ctr+alt+sup)
click on services and look for the LightweightIDOL service if it’s stopped than run it.

7/now go to the task manager again and look for the SAupdater service and disable it.
8/re-open the Service Advisor, click the accept button for the license agreement, and configure the path for the data access you can use the mapping for a virtual drive choice to map each data disc image to a virtual drive it will take more than an hour to load all the data disk.
it will ask you for scheduling the update choose the end of the week and create the task.
9/Now close the SA, use the activator again but this time just use the prolongation tool choose 9000 days or whatever you want.
10/Look for the task scheduler and run it, choose the SAupdate task and modify the time for the task to begin to 2030 or whatever you want.

How to choose cloned Nexiq usb link 2 for the best price & high quality

Here, we’re talking about NEXIQ USB Link 2 China clone for good price and quality.

How to choose a good cloned Nexiq usb link 1 or 2 and cables:


All Nexiq have the same functions, but they are produced in different factories. (quality differs)

What’s the difference between Nexiq 1 and 2?

Nexiq 1 is the past, Nexiq 2 is the future.

NEXIQ USB Link 1 is discontinued. no more updates but for most people it will still work just fine.

Nexiq 2 is the current model and has more future potential than what the Nexiq 1 could do.

Cables for each are different so they are not interchangeable. When ordering, you should make sure you get 3 different cables. The standard 6/9 pin y-cable with the green connector on the 9 pin plug so you can communicate to the newer 500k baud network. A standard OBD II cable and an OBD II Cat cable to talk to Caterpillar engines in GM trucks. If you need to communicate to trailer ABS, you will also need a PLC adapter.

Do you recommend wifi or bluetooth?

Both will work off bluetooth but I find bluetooth very slow. It’s faster and easier just to use a cable to connect to the laptop. The cable is a standard USB “printer” cable. I like using a 5 meter cable so I can move the laptop out of the truck is I have to. There are times I’ve used the laptop on the other side of the truck and even under the truck. The long cable makes it easier. Occasionally, I’ll use bluetooth Heavy Duty Truck diagnostic Scanner.

What’s New in Cummins INSITE 8 Fault Codes

What is Cummins INSITE Fault Codes:

Fault codes are Cummins way of letting you know that your engine has a problem. Every sensor and circuit on your engine has a certain expected reading and voltage signal. These signals are monitored constantly by the Cummins ECM. If values rise above or below expected, the ECM will log a code.

If the error has occurred but is not happening at the time of diagnostics, it is known as an Inactive Fault. If the error is happening while you diagnose, it is known as an Active Fault.

All codes can be classified as either Active or Inactive, and their status can be determined by flash codes or through the Insite Electronic Service Tool.

What is new of Fault Codes in Cummins INSITE version 8:
– Fault Codes window displays an engine’s fault data
– Fault Codes include both engine faults and engine protection faults
– Each fault is represented by a Cummins fault code
Indicates a specific malfunction or abnormal condition within the controller, subsystem, or engine

– Ability to link to Fault Information System for Troubleshooting Information

40-1 40-2 40-3

What’s new in Fault Codes Sorting in Cummins INSITE 8:
1. Fault Codes can be sorted by either the column, or by right click for multiple column sorting
2. The Fault Code data can be sorted by clicking on the column header for a single column sort
3. The data will be sorted based on the selected column in ascending order. Click on the column header again to resort the data in descending order

Note: Sorting can only be used on the Fault Code, Status, Count, or Lamp columns

Tips & Guides Heavy duty truck diagnostic tool – Which BEST

Here are views of popular Heavy Duty Truck diagnostic Scanner or adapters, including pros & cons and tips & tricks.

DG Tech DPA4 or 4+ or DPA5: #2 Choice Metal case makes it durable (must use original USB cable to take advantage of USB port protection)

DPA5 is better than the DPA4+ in that it supports OBD2 Scanner protocols other than J1850VPW and CAN, it also has the long range bluetooth and comes with a bluetooth dongle for your PC.  It has a metal case, rubber shock caps, secure USB and long diagnostic cables unlike the 6″ Nexiq cables.  It is dual CAN, has a large buffer and works well with any application.

NEXIQ USB Link: #1 Choice can also be used with toyota techstream and isuzu IDSS (Must be very careful to not break the usb port on older style)

Having ever used the Nexiq USB Link or Nexiq USB Link 2, I can’t say I really prefer it so much as until fairly recently I didn’t even know there was so many other options as those two are almost the entirety of what I ever see.  Only after recently purchasing a Nexiq USB Link 2 did I begin to realize that so much else (aside from OEM ‘boxes’) was even available.

So far I’m still pleased with the Link 2, but had I done a bit more digging prior to buying it I certainly would have compared it to the DPA5 and might have gone that route just given what I’ve found out about them so far.

About the only complaints I have with the Link 2 so far are the increased price of the adapter cables vs the original (or even other current models) and that connecting via Bluetooth is quite the chore for some reason compared to other (in general) devices.  Given how long the USB cable is though, I’m not terribly concerned with the Bluetooth connectivity.

Nexiq Magikey: Was the best back in the day (Need a PC with printer port to connect)

Nexiq LiteLink: Works with Snapon Modis (older J1708 Data Bus only)

Cummins Inline: RP1210a compliant for apps other than Cummins Insite (Doesnt work well with all rp1210a applications)

Movimento/Navlink: Only way to connect to TCU via IDS on Ford/Int LCF/CF Trucks??? (Freezes using servicemax on some laptops)

Navistar IC4: Small durable adapter (Bad customer support, hard to find drivers, USB cable is part of adapter)

Older PF-Diagnose adapter (B&B Electronics): Small durable adapter (serial cable connection)

Eaton Wireless: Long wireless range (intermittent data loss even at close range)

Noregon DLA: #3 Choice alternative to Nexiq and Dearborn (Large size/odd shape)

Cat ET: Only way to connect to some offroad equipment with CDL data Bus (Need PC with printer port)

This is just my opinion on the adapters above based on personal use.  There are other adapters available and other peoples results/opinions may differ.

How to Install and Setup Nexiq USB Link 2

NEXIQ USB Link 2 Installation Process Outline:

Step 1: Install the USB-Link? 2 drivers and the Device Tester (pg. 9).

Step 2: Choose your connection (wired or wireless) (pg. 24).

If you chose a wired connection, move on to complete steps 4 and 6

Step 3: Install the drivers for the Bluetooth? adapter you are using.

Depending on the Bluetooth? adapter you have selected, you may also
need to configure the Bluetooth? environment (see Configure the Bluetooth
Environment on page 26 of this chapter).

Step 4: Connect the Heavy Duty Scanner USB-Link? 2 to the vehicle.

Steps 4 through 6 are described in Chapter 3 of this manual.

Step 5: Pair the Device:
Step 6: Use the NEXIQ USB Link? Device Tester to test the connection between the
USB-Link? 2 and the vehicle.

6. Advance Functions:Adjustment/Settings、Function Test、Special function, calibration etc. Specific functions will be different according to different models of the brand and the system, take Bosch engine in Foton engine system as an example:


Identification is the vehicle and system information in ECU. When the vehicle control unit need to be replaced, it is necessary to read the original control unit information and record it as a reference for purchasing a new control Heavy Duty Scanner. When the new control unit is encoded, the original control unit information is required.


4.Read Fault code
Read the fault code function can read ECU fault code to help maintenance personnel quickly found the cause of vehicle failure.


5.Erase Fault code
Clear the fault code stored in the ECU.


Note: General models, please follow the regular order, first read the fault code, and record (or print) and then clear the fault code, test, read the fault code again to verify, repair the vehicle, clear the fault code, test again to confirm the fault code The current hard fault code can not be cleared, if the oxygen sensor, knock sensor, mixed gas correction, cylinder fire and the like type of technical code can be removed immediately, but in a certain period will appear. Must be completely troubleshooting after the fault code will not appear again.

6. Actual Values
You can determine whether the various parts of the vehicle are faulty through actual values.
Method of operation:
1. After entering the diagnostic function, click “Actual values”, pop-up dialog box.
2. Click the “Select All” check box to select all actual values; you can also click the check box  before each actual value to select the data stream you want to read.
