NEXIQ debuts new software

NEXIQ Technologies has released its new PC-based, heavy-duty diagnostic software application—eTechnician HD.

According to the company, the application provides the basic functions to diagnose most electronically controlled vehicle systems, including module support for engines, transmissions, brakes, trailers, body controllers, instrument clusters, and emissions. This comprehensive support enables technicians to easily switch between each of the elements of the vehicle system. In addition, eTechnician HD supports a wide-array of heavy-duty vehicles, the company says.

The product includes a “quick launch” utility that launches OEM software applications seamlessly, for quick access to additional support and functionality. To provide an even broader range of diagnostic support, eTechnician HD also can be integrated with NEXIQ’s SmartTech subscription service, which grants technicians instant access to diagnostic fault-related service information. SmartTech anticipates the detailed information required to fix the vehicle and retrieves it in seconds. SmartTech sold separately.

NEXIQ says eTechnician HD supports RP1210 compliant interface adapters, including the industry’s preferred vehicle interface adapter—the NEXIQ USB-Link 2 — available in both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi editions.
