TEXA launch the New OBD Log
The New OBD Log is an innovative little device that plugs directly into the vehicle’s own diagnostic socket and monitors, records parameters and errors provided by the EOBD protocol.
We all know that some faults only occur under specific conditions, problems like power loss only in a certain rev range, or warning lights and sensors flagging faults under particular conditions. And we know these problems are almost impossible to solve in the garage.
The OBD Log records all such errors in an internal memory, and can be viewed quickly and easily on your PC. You can simply install the OBD Log in your car and the OBD Log will then continue to record all relevant data while your customer drives around normally.
The OBD Log is a sophisticated diagnostic device that plugs directly into a vehicle’s OBD socket unobstrusively without interferring with the normal vehicle.
Its compact size and the fact that it is totally automatic means that you can install it on any type of 12V vehicle (Euro2 or later for petrol engines and Euro4 or later for diesels), and simply leave it recording engine parameters for days or even a weeks.
As the OBD Log features a cyclical memory that writes the latest data over the oldest if there are no errors detected, even if the vehicle is delayed in returning to the workshop, no critical information will be lost.
At the end of the monitoring period, you can download the recorded data for viewing on your PC using the IDC3 PC Suite or the OBD log software, a development of TEXA’s acclaimed IDC3 operating system which features a simple graphic interface.
This software has been specially developed to present reports for each individual trip, with time and data recorded so that you can identify exactly where and when an error occurred.
For each trip, a green light indicates that no errors were detected, while a red light shows that an error code was recorded and that fault details are available for viewing.
