ZF's Commercial Vehicle Control Systems new Wabco Toolbox Plus, a PC-based advanced diagnostics software, accelerates vehicle and trailer diagnosis with a new “roll call” feature that automatically detects Wabco systems included on the vehicle.
Users can then quickly diagnose fault codes, view repair and installation instructions, and access maintenance manuals for the detected systems. The software also features expanded diagnostic capabilities and support for current Wabco products, including the Intelligent Anti-lock Braking System for trailers, Modular Braking System Platform for trucks, and TailGuard reversing collision avoidance system for trucks and trailers.
“Toolbox Plus is designed to enable users to quickly and easily run accurate diagnostics to get vehicles back on the road as quickly as possible and increase uptime for ZF customers,” said Abe Aon, business leader, North America aftersales, service and support for the Commercial Vehicle Control Systems Division.
When further technical support is required, the software pre-populates the Wabco product warranty form with information such as the vehicle identification number and fault codes. The form can then be emailed to the Wabco Customer Care Center.
Toolbox Plus also includes aftermarket programming functionality which enables on-demand programming of replacement electronic control units for Wabco truck ABS, as well as the Wabco OnLaneAlert Lane Departure Warning camera.
