Call 1-800-892-9650

The second generation diagnosis tester has now reached our workshops.

  • Triggered by the new diagnosis standard ASAM (Association for Standardisation of Automation- and Measuring Systems).
  • Prepared for future diagnosis software and hardware (remote head VAS5054A) thanks to employment of the latest technical options.
  • Enhanced by amendments over previous model from customer requests.

Workshop compatibility, ease of use and mobility go without saying. With the vehicle diagnosis and service information system VAS 5052A, the successful care concept for modern vehicle systems is continued in a consistent manner. The functions/operating modes "Vehicle self-diagnosis", "OBD", "Guided fault finding", "Guided functions", etc. are comparable with those from VAS 5052. Interrogation of fault memory in all control units, update programming of control units or resetting service interval display have no differences in use with today''''s functions.

A scantool mode allows data transfer, as prescribed within the scope of onboard diagnosis (OBD), with the emissions influencing control units of all manufacturers. Service information such as service tables, current flow diagrams, etc. (ELSA WEB) can be displayed on the screen of the equipment and reduces the amount of paper required in the workshop quite considerably. The required information is made available directly at the site of repair and with very up-to-date data. The necessary interfaces are installed for access to service information on local servers or internet data. The equipment is prepared for use with future diagnosis software application ODIS (Offboard Diagnosis Strategy).
