Bosch has released Esitronic Truck, its first North American heavy-duty (HD) truck scan. Esitronic Truck covers all major HD truck, MD truck, engine, transmission, and brake system combinations with diagnostics and embedded repair information. Esitronic Truck will offer a solution to independent repair shops and fleets seeking a single scan tool for all their HD and medium-duty trucks.
“For years there has not been an all-encompassing tool in the HD aftermarket that gives technicians what they need – all makes/models diagnostics coverage combined with repair information,” said Matt Stein, Bosch Automotive Service Solutions senior product manager of electronics, heavy-duty diagnostics and direct-test electronics. “Esitronic Truck is that and more, aligning repair info with testing to saving repair time and overall costs. It fills a direct need in the market.”
Esitronic Truck will run parameter resets, conduct bidirectional diagnostics and engine adjustments. The tool also includes wiring diagrams, component information, electrical specification and step-by-step troubleshooting for common causes on error codes.
Vehicles covered by Esitronic Truck include:
- HD Diagnostics coverage: Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Mack, Volvo, Peterbilt, Sterling, Westernstar, MD Trucks, Sprinter Van, Isuzu, GM and Ford.
- Engine coverage: Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel-MBE, Deutz, MTU, Navistar, PACCAR, Perkins and Volvo, and includes medium- and light-duty software.
Adhering to industry communication standard RP1210, the tool will read and clear codes, perform calibrations, track service schedules, read data streams and component technical data. It also includes basic OBD II scan for light-duty trucks 1996 and newer.
Esitronic Truck will be available in September through local Bosch distributors in North America.
