SPX Service Solutions announced the launch of Pegisys (Professional Enhanced Graphical Information System), a professional-grade hand-held diagnostic tool that offers "game-changing" wireless capabilities and diagnostic features for enhanced automotive testing.

Free from the conventional OBD connectors and cable tether, the technician can now access hard-to-reach computer-controlled components and move freely while scanning the vehicle from anywhere within a 30-foot radius.

Pegisys integrates 27 years of vehicle coverage (1980-2007) for 44 different vehicle makes from more than 25 different manufacturers. It comes preloaded with expanded Scan (Pathfinder) and Scope (Infotech); and Repair-Trac tech tips troubleshooters; Automated System Test; Quick DTC Scan, DataStream and Bidirectional Test capability, and enhanced USA Domestic, Asian and European vehicle coverage. Several diagnostic features are included, such as a large screen touch control, super-fast SpeedScroll thumb pads for scrolling through long data lists, high-speed two-channel scope, peripheral connectivity, audio and streaming video capability.

With AirBridge technology inside, Pegisys supports WiFi connectivity to the Internet, offering access to real time Web-enabled diagnostic assets right from the tool. Secure Digital Input / Output 802.11b/g mini cards supply high-speed WiFi communications between the Pegisys and the intuitive Vehicle Communications Interface. Frequent Internet direct-to-Pegisys subscription updates keep the vehicle coverage current and as technology changes, AirBridge connectivity means technicians can field update Pegisys to the latest and fastest wireless communications.

The Pegisys Scan Tool supports USB peripherals for keyboard, mouse, memory devices, headphone, microphone, printer, and the "plug-and-play" device features offer fully automated configuration and operation of VCI modules and application software. Repair information is embedded in the tool and when technicians can't find it there, technicians can reach global support through WiFi for software updates and diagnostic information access through Direct-Hit Technician from Identifix (subscription available Fall 2008). All available diagnostic information and code tips populate the navigation bar when DTC is selected.
