Meritor Wabco has enhanced its Toolbox PC-based diagnostics software, which is available for its pneumatic and hydraulic anti-lock braking systems, electronic leveling modules, and electronically-controlled air suspensions.

The new ToolBox 9.0 supports RSSPlus, the company's trailer-based stability system; the "E" version of Hydraulic ABS; and the tractor ABS "E" version 4.3 and Hydraulic Power Brake releases 1 and 2. In addition, the new version is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.

"As our vehicle systems become more sophisticated, it's imperative that diagnostic tools are more intuitive and easier to use," said Alan Korn, director of vehicle dynamics and controls, Meritor Wabco. "It's designed to help them be more efficient and productive and minimize vehicle downtime."

Meritor Wabco's Toolbox system, which is distributed by SPX Service Solutions, displays both active and stored system faults as well as the corresponding repair instructions. It can display both constant and dynamic information from the braking system under test, and activate components to verify system integrity, correct component operation, and installation wiring.
