Bosch Unveils Heavy-Duty Scan Tool
Robert Bosch LLC’s new HDS 200 heavy-duty scan tool offers coverage for heavy-duty and medium-duty trucks.
The company says the new scan tool, which is available in North America, is an easy-to-use, cost-effective solution for technicians working on class 4 - 8 trucks.
HDS 200 is a solution for aftermarket repair shops that sometimes service heavy- and medium-duty trucks, according to Bosch. The tool is also ideal for heavy-duty shops that need a second triage tool or to equip their mobile repair trucks.
The HDS 200 is a ruggedized and durable tool with a color display to read and clear diagnostic trouble codes.
To better assist technicians in diagnosis and repair, the tool displays and graphs live data from SAE standard MIDS/PIDS along with on-screen definitions of diagnostic trouble codes and is HD-OBD compatible.
Users have the option of recording data to playback information.
The tool offers Global OBD II Quick Test for gasoline and diesel engines. For seamless integration into the shop, a demo mode allows the opportunity for technician training.
The Bosch HDS 200 Heavy Duty Scan Tool kit includes a 9 pin Deutsch cable, 6 pin Deutsch cable, 16 pin HD/OBD II cable, USB cable, quick start guide and carrying case.
Display language can be selected from English, Spanish and French, with data readouts in English or metric. The HDS 200 meets SAE J1587/J1708 & J1939 standards and specifications.
