Diagnostic tools and diagnostic software nowadays are essential to any vehicle workshop. With the growing number of cars, diagnostic testing of electronic systems has become one of the most crucial parts of most repair operations. Truckdiag offers a wide range of diagnostic equipment for diagnosis and maintenance of heavy vehicles like trucks, buses, agricultural and construction machinery also heavy-duty engines. Our diagnostic tools designed for vehicles or machinery and internal combustion engines made by DAF, MAN, FORD, Iveco, Scania, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Still, Linde, Cummins, New Holland, Fiat-Kobelco, Orenstein & Koppel, Case, Steyr, Kobelco, and other manufacturers.
Diagnostic tools for trucks
It doesn’t matter how big or small your workshop is. Any truck workshop needs proper tools to make the job done. So, we offer the most popular and reliable diagnostic solutions for trucks. Experimenting with “no-name” devices and software is just a waste of time and resources. Continue reading Diagnostic tools for trucks, truck diagnostic software
SCR emulator is a device designed to override the onboard SCR system ECU and assure that engine ECU and other related electronic modules get the accurate data necessary for standard functionality. Emulator replaces SCR system ECU and makes it discreetly, without any negative impact on other vehicle systems. But let’s look up closer how it works and why this device might be interesting to you.
How does the SCR catalyst work?
SCR or Selective Catalytic Reduction system widely used on modern diesel trucks and other heavy vehicles to reduce NOx (nitrogen oxides) emissions. NOx emissions rise when diesel fuel burns at a higher temperature with a more significant amount of air necessary for the normal combustion process. It makes the diesel engine more efficient — moreover, additional NOx emissions generated on DPF (diesel particulate filter) regeneration process. Exhaust gas temperature is raised artificially by engine ECU to burn out the diesel particulate matter from DPF filter Continue reading SCR emulator, why you might need one and how it works
AdBlue Emulator V4 modules allow setting several parameters. Those parameters depend on the truck type. Only DAF LF software has no additional settings, and it’s ready to run right out of the box. For other trucks, it is possible to change such parameters like VIN code and AdBlue tank level for better compatibility.
If you’re ordering one or several AdBlue Emulator modules (not the bulk kit of modules), please write us a note what custom settings we should program.
It’s highly recommended to set the VIN code if you want a DAF version (except DAF LF). It’s necessary for compatibility and to avoid possible DTC errors. Please use the Additional information > Order notes (bottom of the checkout page) text field to write us a message and specify how we should prepare your AdBlue Emulator modules.
If you need a programmer for V4 emulators, you can purchase it separately as it is available in our shop. Free programmers provided only with bulk kit orders (at least ten unit kit). Programmer supports just V4 type emulators, and it’s impossible to use it with other emulator types.
For those who have ordered a bulk kit of ten, twenty, fifty or even one hundred emulators we recommend to connect each emulator to the PC and check out the settings and if necessary to alter them. We offer at least one free USB programmer adapter required to connect your emulator module to the PC with every bulk order. Don’t forget to do it before installing the emulator on any truck since we do not program modules for bulk orders. Continue reading AdBlue Emulator V4 programmable parameters
Due to a large quantity of burned AdBlue Emulator modules, we are forced to change our warranty terms for this product line. We noticed that some of our customers ignore recommendations for installation sequence of AdBlue Emulator products.
These modules are sensitive, and they made so to protect the electronics of the truck. Every AdBlue Emulator has an installation manual, and we provide these manuals for every client right after purchase. The most problematic V4 and V5 series comes with the label that has emulator model, active program state (if programmed to any of supported truck brands), wiring information and finally yet most important warning text that says “Attention! Connect ground cable (brown) first!”. Yes, this is a critical part of the label. This simple sentence is here to protect the emulator module from damage.
We can identify emulators that burned due to improper installation because it burns out a particular part of microchip that is responsible for CAN connection. Why does it happen? We can write a lot of text to explain it, but the reason is simple – ignoring the rules of installation. So the primary and most critical rule is to connect ground wire first before connecting other wires of the emulator to the truck and disconnect the ground wire last when all other wires disconnected when you’re uninstalling the emulator. That’s it, simple and clear. The Same rule applies for connecting V4 emulator to V4 emulator programmer.
We decided to tighten warranty terms. From now every emulator will be inspected individually by our warranty service specialists. If we determine that the emulator burned out due to improper installation, this emulator will lose its warranty. Same applies to flooded devices. Also, we will not cover back shipping costs if emulator will not meet our warranty conditions.
From now all V4 and V5 emulators will be shipped with an additional red label just to remind that it’s critical to connect ground wire first.
All emulators with different issues will be repaired or changed to new items normally as it was to this day. We want to remind you that all emulators in our shop have a limited 12-month warranty.
If you are in doubt about the installation process and you think that you might need help, please contact us for more information.
