Vector updates automotive diagnostic tester

Version 9 of the automotive diagnostic tester Indigo offers users more convenience in diagnostics over IP (DoIP) as well as more functionality in on-board diagnostics (OBD), said Vector. 

The Indigo vehicle diagnostic tester can be customised and extended to suit specific user needs and for customer-specific use cases. Version 9 offers DoIP and OBD enhancements, including automatic selection of matching diagnostic descriptions for DoIP ECUs and CAN ECUs. This almost completely eliminates initial setup time, said Vector. 

Another enhancement is that MAC addresses of Vector Ethernet interfaces can now be changed easily, and trusted MAC addresses can be set manually for security applications.

In addition to OBD II and WWH-OBD, Version 9 of Indigo supports the new OBD diagnostic standards OBDonUDS and ZEVonOBD (OBD for zero emission vehicles). Indigo offers independent use case-focused windows for OBD functions, which can be freely combined with each other. A special use case window displays monitor and fault memory data in combination. In addition to reading out and testing the OBD functionality, this also facilitates vehicle repair and supports diagnostics specialists in troubleshooting. The remote option means that OBD diagnostics can now also be used remotely.

An Indigio OBD variant focuses specifically on the oOn-board diagnostic test and on the homologation of EURO-5 and EURO-6 vehicles. Users receive a comprehensive OBD scan tool that covers all traditional and new diagnostic standards.
