Diagnostic Innovations to offer Eaton MD

Diagnostic Innovations LLC has added Eaton Corp's new MD Mobile Diagnostics systems to its truck diagnostic product offering. The MD Mobile Diagnostics product line includes the MD-100, MD-200, and the MD-300, a PC-based diagnostic software application.

The Eaton MD-100 series tool is a vehicle link interface box/adapter for PC to vehicle communications. It works as the primary link between heavy-duty vehicles and Windows-based OEM software applications. The MD-100 is compatible with the latest vehicle standards including SAE J1578, J1708, and J1939. The MD is RP1210A-compatible and supports Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT, ME, and XP operating systems.

Eaton's MD-200 is a hand-held scan tool that can simultaneously monitor various powertrain components, including engine components, for all makes and models of trucks in North America with SAE J1587 and J1939 data links. It can read and clear fault codes and can record 30 seconds of snapshot data for analysis. The software resides in the tool so there are no cartridges to install or swap, and the device can be updated over the Internet. The MD-200 acts as four tools in one: a scan tool, communication box, link tester, and data logger.

The MD-300 is a PC-based diagnostic software that diagnoses heavy-duty commercial vehicle electronic systems. It uses the SAE J1587 diagnostic link and works with RP1210A communication adapters. MD-300 software can monitor data, view and clear fault codes, and graphically display up to four components individually or up to 15 components collectively.
