When you are shopping for Caterpillar CAT ET SIS diagnostic system you will need 3 things:
1) A laptop, we prefer the PANASONIC TOUGHBOOK CF-29 because its the TOUGHEST LAPTOP on this planet ! Go on YOUTUBE and search TOUGHBOOK CF-29 and you will see why ! Can drive your car over them, they have touchscreen, waterproof and greaseproof keyboard which makes it perfect perfect for a shop.
2) CAT ET SIS software installed
3) CAT 3 iii bluetooth wireless diagnostics adapter # 317-7485 replaces the CAT II # 317-7484 AT II adapter
CATERPILLAR CAT ET SIS FEATURES :
Allows communication between service tools and engine controls using various data links such as J1939/11, DeviceNet (future release), Caterpillar DataLink, and J1708 (ATA) vehicle networks;
Flash program allows adapter firmware upgrades as additional features become available;
Uses J1939/11, high-speed data link (part of ADEM III controls), substantially reducing flash times;
Automatically selects J1939/11 when flashing the engine (reduces the flash time approximately 80%, from 14 minutes to 3 minutes).
The PC-based service tools from ca ter provide the capability to access Electronic Control Modules (ECMs) from a personal computer. Many job-critical tasks can be performed with an electronic service tool. The user can display the status of a group of parameters (temperatures, pressures, etc.) simultaneously, view active and clear logged diagnostics, display the current configuration of an ECM and much more. The OBD2 Scanner works with a communication adapter to allow connection to an ECM. A graphical interface makes this software quick to learn and easy to use. A separate pull-down menu for each function enhances the a??ease of use.a?? The version and identification of the ECM is automatically retrieved and is displayed on a summary screen when the program is started. Diagnostic tests and calibrations can also be performed.
PC-based tools enable service technicians to reprogram ECMs, reconfigure control system parameters, fine tune performance or diagnose the root cause of a failure the first time. These powerful Heavy Duty Scanner allow service personnel to display and analyze vital performance and health information from any system quickly and accurately. The service tool communicates with any system using ATA (J1708), J1939 or the Caterpillar proprietary data link networks. The service tools provide information and features needed to help a technician diagnose problems and perform repairs and to customize and personalize the operation of a product. By allowing customers to design flexibility and configurability into a product, ca ter service tools stretch beyond the capabilities of preprogrammed ECMs or onboard display systems.
Display graph and log status parameters.
Retrieve prognostic data including histograms, engine totals for fuel used and miles traveled.
View active diagnostics and clear logged diagnostics. View events where irregularities have occurred and have been logged by the ECM.
Perform calibrations to enhance performance of the ECM.
Customize the ECM with application-specific settings.
Over 100 custom Diagnostic, Information and Service features including:
2D and 3D Histogram plotting capability (engine software support required).
Custom Status screen groups
Snapshots (Download and display snapshot data recorded by the ECM)
Configuration Aid that allows upload/download of same configuration to multiple control modules
Customised Service Tool Options
Customized service tool name
Customized graphics for the splash screen and icons
Aftermarket differentiation, the tool for one customer does not work on the product of another customer.
Licensing options for customer management
Flash programming of the ECM(s)
Training demonstration allows familiarity with the toola s primary functions without connecting to ECM(s)
Major operating systems support (Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0, 2000, ME, & XP)
Perform customized diagnostic tests to identify harness problems, cylinder or component failures (Automatic Cylinder Cutout with cylinder to cylinder fueling comparison)
