Bosch’s Esitronic Truck is a truck scanning tool that covers heavy- and medium-duty truck, engine, transmission and brake system combinations.
It provides diagnostics and also includes testing and repair information such as wiring diagrams, component information, electrical specification and step-by-step troubleshooting. Esitronic Truck will run parameter resets, conduct bidirectional diagnostics and engine adjustments.
Heavy-duty trucks covered by Esitronic are Freightliner, International Kenworth, Mack, Volvo, Peterbilt, Sterling and Western Star. For medium-duty trucks, it covers the Sprinter Van, Isuzu, GM and Ford. Engines covered include the brands Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel-MBE, Deutz, MTU, Navistar, Paccar, Perkins and Volvo. Esitronic includes both medium- and light-duty software.
The tool adheres to industry communication standard RP1210 and will read and clear codes, perform calibrations, track service schedules, read data streams and component technical data. It also includes basic OBD II scan for light-duty trucks 1996 and newer.
Esitronic Truck will be available in September through local Bosch distributors in North America.
“We were focused on bringing a complete tool to market, something every technician can use and that helps speed up their diagnostic and repair process,” said Matt Stein, Bosch Automotive Service Solutions senior product manager of electronics, heavy-duty diagnostics and direct-test electronics.
