Software tools simplify ABS diagnostics
Aug 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC has two software applications to help fleets and technicians train, diagnose, repair, troubleshoot, and recalibrate components comprising its antilock braking, traction, and stability systems.
The Bendix ACom Diagnostics 5.3 software is a Microsoft Windows-based program. It interfaces with the vehicle, reduces troubleshooting steps, and directs the technician straight to the diagnostic trouble code. It covers current and most earlier generations of both tractor and trailer ABS applications from Bendix, including the ABS-6 Advanced with ESP electronic stability program.
A separate tool, the Bendix ABS Repair and Diagnostic CD, serves as a reference for training technicians about Bendix ABS and how to use various tools, including ACom Diagnostics, to troubleshoot the system. The CD includes information and tips on all current as well as most earlier generations of Bendix tractor ABS applications.
Both tools are offered in CD-ROM format and can be ordered at www.bendix.com or by phoning 800-247-2725. Refer to BW2538 for the diagnostics and troubleshooting CD and BW2329 for the Bendix ACom 5.3 CD.
