The debut took place at the American Trucking Associations Technology & Maintenance Council's annual meeting.
The Pro-Link iQ represents the next generation in handheld diagnostic tools for heavy-duty truck maintenance. It's designed for easy and reliable scanning of vehicle functions and performance.
In association with Menlo Innovations, a Michigan-based software design and development firm, the Nexiq
The iQ was developed to diagnose engine faults, create data lists, provide trip information and perform special functions tests and reports. While it is a highly sophisticated and innovative tool, using it is intuitive and requires a minimal training period. Technicians can pick it up and begin working with it immediately through a series of simple touch screens sorted by a set of clearly marked navigation tabs.
At 2.5 pounds, the Pro-Link iQ is lightweight, portable and powerful. Its advanced-technology features enable easier data downloads while the large color screen allows for the display of much more information than conventional hand-held scanners.
The iQ is available immediately with a number of applications. These include a generic Heavy Duty Standard (HDS) application broadcast of public data for medium- and heavy-duty trucks and OBD II for light- and medium-duty vehicles. Also available are proprietary OEM applications for the Caterpillar ACERT, Detroit Diesel DDEC III, IV and V and International mid-range engines. Coming soon are Allison transmission applications, and CEC1 transmissions and WABCO air and hydraulic applications. More applications will be added soon.
