    NOTE: This item has been discontinued by DG Tech. It may be available as a special order. Please contact us at 888-983-1975 x1 for questions. Alternatively, you can purchase the DPA5 which does everything the DPA4 does, plus more. Any orders placed for this item will be shipped the DPA5.

    The DPA 4 Plus is the fastest, most rugged, most reliable, and the most versatile RP1210 compliant Vehicle Datalink Adapter (VDA) on the market.

    The DPA 4 Plus is a One-Tool-Solution, supporting all of your favorite OEM and component diagnostic applications. So why purchase multiple adapters, when the DPA 4 Plus is all you need?

    From inception to deployment, the DPA 4 Plus was built for speed-critical applications such as End-Of-Line (EOL) programming stations and the re-flashing of Electronic Control Units/Modules (ECUs/ECMs). In fact, the DPA family of products is consistently faster than the other leading adapters in an "apples-to-apples" benchmarking comparison. This means significantly reduced reprogramming and diagnostic sessions, leading to a fast return on investment (ROI)...

    Not only is the DPA 4 Plus a great product, but our warranty, support, and service are second-to-none.

    • The DPA 4 Plus comes with a two-year limited warranty.
    • The DPA is manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified facility.
    • Our technical support team has years of industry experience to help you get the most from your investment.
    • Should a tool need to be returned to the factory, the RMA repair process is simple, and turnaround is generally same-day.
    • This combination of speed and reliability is why the U.S. Military has chosen it to be the protocol adapter for all wheeled vehicles in their fleet.

    You Asked for "Out-of-the-Box" Functionality and we Delivered - DG Diagnostics!

    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.
