Nexiq Universal PLC Adapter for Trailers

SKU 604020

If you want to read ABS codes on a trailer without a laptop, you need this tool!

The new and improved Universal J560 PLC (Power Line Carrier) Adapter extends the capability of J1708/J1587 diagnostic tools to support J2497 Power Line Carrier (PLC) communication. Basically, it extracts data from the power line and converts it to J1708. You can use the Universal J560 PLC Adapter along with a generic ABS diagnostic software application to do the following:

  • Detect ABS warning lamp messages coming from the trailer ECU.
  • Test the in-cab trailer ABS warning lamp.
  • Test SAE J1708 MID 10 and 11 messages and J1587 MIDs 136 through 139.

You can connect the Universal J560 PLC Adapter to a vehicle between the tractor and the trailer, or to the trailer alone without the tractor.

The Universal J560 PLC Adapter can be used with virtually any heavy-duty vehicle communication interface (VCI) or scan tool, including the following NEXIQ Technologies™ products:

  • USB-Link 2 PN 124032
  • USB-Link Original PN 125032
  • WVL2 PN 129048
  • NEXIQ Pro-Link iQ™ PN 188001
  • NEXIQ Pocket iQ™ PN 181080

This tool works in conjuction with ABS software for your PC, Pocket IQ,  or Pro-Link IQ. That software is not included with this listing.
