Jaltest Soft 13.1 Preview


Jaltest Soft 13.1 heralds another huge batch of improvements and additions. Here at Eclipse we’ve been taking a detailed look at it before the planned public release on 25th February 2013.

Troubleshooting by Symptoms

For those occasions where a DTC has not been generated by the vehicle but there is clearly a fault to be fixed.

Troubleshooting for fault codes

Offers true multi-brand guided diagnosis – taking you from a description of a fault through a logical procedure of finding and testing components along with relevant wiring diagrams.

This type of hand holding has previously only been available on dealer level tools like the Mercedes Star, DAF Davie, Iveco EASY and Scania SD3 etc.

Shortcuts to special functions

You no longer need to know which ECU is responsible for controlling the function you need to perform. E.g. Ad Blue dosing check.

Customised group of measures

Preselect the live data you require in logical groups for testing – work how you want to. E.g. Fuel pressure, Target Fuel Pressure, Common Rail and Individual Injectors selected as a group to help diagnose high pressure fuel circuit.

System technical data: text filter and direct access to print

Quickly search for your required component and instantly print the results.

Screenshots – option to print directly into the diagnostic report

Provide rich information in your client reports (or prove a point to your boss!)

Additional fault code information included in diagnosis report

Help for wiring diagrams, comments and notes

The best commercial vehicle wiring diagrams just got better with the addition of interactive legends.

Unlike other truck data providers Jaltest covers Body systems, Frame modules, Gearbox, Lighting Control Modules (LCM) etc.

Jaltest iParts

TecDoc is replaced by Jaltest iParts where you can find alternative part numbers for components.

Firmware information shown only when inconsistent

If you’ve forgotten to update your Jaltest Link firmware following a software update you’ll get a helpful reminder about this crucial process.

New cables

JDC 304M2 for ATC Wabco systems

JDC 305M2 for ABS6 Knorr

JDC 503M2 for Eberspacher systems

JDC 504M2 for Deutz engines

General Diagnostic improvements

Speed Limiting coverage extended

Jaltest Soft 12.3 introduced speed limit adjustment for Scania 4 Series Hpi. With 13.1 this feature is extended to Mercedes Actros, Atego, Atron , Axor and Econic models and Volvo/Renault Dxi vehicles.
Of course, you don’t get to set the speed limit to whatever you want – if the vehicle limit is currently set at 90km/h (56mph) or above you can lower it.  If the limit is set below 90km/h it can be increased but not beyond 90km/h.
Many hauliers enjoy considerable savings in fuel costs across their fleet by reducing their speed limit from 56mph to 52mph – now they can use their Jaltest to improve fuel economy.
