Mitchell 1 has expanded integration of its RepairConnect software with Nexiq Technologies eTechnician HD diagnostic application, giving truck technicians access to diagnostic fault-related service information on PC.
The integration extends access to diagnostic information from the Nexiq Technologies scan tool to a desktop computer. The two systems have been compatible for Nexiq users since 2013.
A technician using eTechnician HD can access RepairConnect and retrieve DTC-related service information, including: descriptions of trouble codes, related wiring diagrams, component connector views, electrical component locations, testing procedures, removal and installation procedures and DTC-related specifications.
RepairConnect anticipates what information is required to fix the vehicle based on the DTC and retrieves it. Service times can be shortened because no additional lookup of repair information is required to complete the service correctly.
“We’re pleased to take the integration of RepairConnect with Nexiq to the next level with the introduction into the eTechnician HD PC-based platform," said Scott DeGiorgio, general manager of the commercial vehicle group for Mitchell 1. "Having this additional resource at their fingertips will give technicians another way to access the information they need to repair trucks more efficiently and with more confidence, which is always our goal."
