    Includes Universal Diesel Diagnostic software

    Our customers have been asking for a simple diagnostics application that will work with their DPA "right-out-of-the-box" to display faults, component information and basic vehicle parameters from the J1708/J1587 and CAN/J1939 data buses. DG Technologies has answered the call and is providing these features in an application called "DG Diagnostics".

    DG Diagnostics is a great screening/triage tool and is provided free-of-charge with the purchase of any DPA product. DG Diagnostics works with all DPA adapters past and present, and may reduce your need to purchase full-featured OEM software.

    Take your DPA straight from the box and start generating ROI with some of these features:

    • Read and display J1587 and J1939 faults in "text" form. Request clear of inactive J1587 and J1939 faults.
    • Display "total-vehicle" and "trip data" such as odometer, engine hours, and fuel economy from the J1587 and J1939 data buses.
    • Create a viewable/printable/saveable vehicle report in HTML format showing all information that has been captured.
    • Display common "dashboard" parameters such as RPM, temperatures and pressures from the J1587 and J1939 data buses.
    • Request reset of J1939 trip information (trip odometer, trip miles, trip fuel, etc).
    • Display J1587 and J1939 ECM component information such as VIN, Make, Model, Serial, and Unit Numbers.
    • Record data bus data for engineering analysis as well as play that data back internally through the program or externally to the data bus.
    • Configure and launch OEM applications directly without having to navigate through the Windows Start Menu.
